I hope I don't have to pre order this to pick it up tomorrow. Also, I hope there aren't only a few copies and people are waking up early to get them. I can't really go till later.

Looks like they updated the product page to allow instore pickups. Keep getting an error message while trying to pick my store but I assume they'll fix it within an hour or two.

I noticed this also. Add to Cart brings me to "Your shopping cart is empty."

I know the fact it is a steelbook trumps all but I don't really like how it doesn't show the title of the movie on the spine. Not that I wouldn't know what it is by looking at it but still seems like a weird omission. 

 

Actually nm, looks like the first picture was the mock up with no writing on it at all so I am assuming the final version does have the writing on the spine like how it has the title on the front of the final retail version.

 

There's no text at all on the actual Steelbook - this is a cost-cutting measure to allow the same Steelbook to be sold in multiple regions (with paper overlays, etc. containing the actual localized title, etc.). Sucks.

 

Edit: I stand corrected.

Spreading misinformation here.


There is clearly writing on the actual steelbook for this version and the spine also includes the title as opposed to the character portraits. From what I understand, FutureShop and BestBuy are kind of one and the same (?) so I'm pretty sure this is the same exact one Best Buy is getting.


Edit: why the f*** can't I post a YouTube link? Every time I try to edit my post, the link is completely left out.

 

Edit 2: finally got the youtube link in there but i had to get on my PC to do it.

This is true for Europe only. They use the same case for all European Disney releases (no title on front or spine) and just use J-cards with that country's language on the card. We have a Steelbook plant in Ohio that makes their own cases and does not have to share them elsewhere, so that rule does not apply to us. 

 

EDIT: I just noticed after watching the video that there are 3 disc holders in the case, but there is no 3-disc version released in the U.S. Stupid.

Ah, thanks for the corrections, guys. I've been reading up on the European version and didn't realize they were changing it for the North American release.

Can we not do store pickup online until it opens or something?  I see available, but you can't add to cart via website nor mobile.

I talked to the employee. He said these special limited exclusive steelbooks will not be for pickups.

And he would be wrong because they always have been. Thor is available right now for pickup. My guess is there was a glitch and it didn't go live until the store opened when it should have been midnight pacific time like it should  have been.

Went in at opening. They had five on the shelf and an employee had already grabbed one. I'm guessing they have six copies at the smaller stores.

You can probably thank this guy for not finding one.

Got to my store at 10:00 guy in front of me took all 6-7 that were on the "new release" kiosk. They had a separate display for Thor with like 3-4 more copies of the steelbook so I grabbed one from there. In the checkout line he had the balls to ask me where I found it.

Did you tell him there's a special place in CAG hell for people like him? Where he gets steelbooks thrown at him for being an inconsiderate asshole?
