Obviously more to be stocked, but most of those were just regular blu rays.  There was a WWZ steelbook place as well as a Star Trek I believe, although I might be mistaken.  I got a few at $12.96 a piece.

Huh. Best Buy has been offering these too but at $15. They are all comic book style.

Undertaker appears to disapprove of this endcap.

Here is the link to The Incredible Hulk steelbook on BestBuy.com, you can see quite a few of the others by looking at the "customers also browsed" stuff.  There are 15 total. http://www.bestbuy.c... hulk&lp=1&cp=1

DId WWZ have a steel in the US?  Star Trek did, but it was only part of a bundle (with a Hot Wheels ship model).

The Paramount ones are a mix of Wave 1 and 2.

 

The WWZ and Star Trek 09 are some of the new MetalPaks/FuturePaks.

 

Did you happen to see any of the Anchor Bay ones coming out 20th listed on the tags?

And isn't Father's Day in June? haha I mean nice to see them out early though.

 

 

Uni Reel Heroes Wave 2

Really only want Saving Private Ryan, but I'd want behind the scenes stuff. Heard it's only a single so no extras.

The Universal ones feel really cheap and they damage insanely easy. You breathe the wrong way around one and it scratches.

I would rather have the JP Steelbook Best Buy had way back when

In for the Scott Pilgrim Steelbook. $15 for Blu/DVD/Digital/UV in a Steelbook format is nice...but hell be damned that I can't find a Walmart.com listing for the $12.97 pricing of it...may have to bite for $15 if BB can't make out the Steelbook legibly enough in that photo on the main page.

You mean the stupid G1 steelbook that feels like it'll break if you set it down wrong? Yeah I have it and while it is pretty nice the fact that it is G1 and that is is pretty flimsy is a good reason not to get it I guess. It is nice though.

I should make my own topic for this question, but I'll put it here instead:

 

What would all of the insane Steelbook collectors do if Steelbook became the new standard for every BD released from here on out?

 

(I was going to say die-hard Steelbook collectors, but that's an entirely separate thing that already exists)

I'd be happier, then I wouldn't have to hunt down and over-pay for the ones I actually want.

Stop buying movies.
 

One this will never happen. It would cost the studios to much to make these and then they would have to offset the cost by charging higher prices. Then, if they did go this route they would all be matted or flat with no inner art to also save on cost. Forget about even seeing embossing again cost.

I got a PM with the image above from my phone. $12.96 at BB for Blu/DVD/DC/UV in nifty steely form. And it feels the same quality as they had for the Hunger Games steelbooks. Reasonable.

Didn't Wally World have these last father's day?  Maybe not father's day but I know they had them last summer.  I was going to pick some up then but passed, then last BF they had them mixed in and got a couple for $5 a pop.

 

Correction, they had most of them last year.  I do see a couple of new ones.

I'm pretty sure they always have a blu ray sale at this time of year, $5 apiece IIRC.  I've gotten some good deals out of it.  I don't remember them ever doing steelbooks like this before though.

Mind mentioning which ones or offering a link so we don't have to go searching for them?

Links or lists. I tried to see which they had, but all the results I got had varied prices, very few close to the $10 mark.

Yeah, it was like over the summer or something like you said. Maybe Fall...but yeah these are pretty much the same titles from the last time they rolled these out. I think there's a thread here about it too.

Thank you. There is one Best Buy near me that actually has these in store. For $10 I can see grabbing Jurassic Park and maybe Wanted with a price match.

Be nice if they got the anchor bay ones. Would love the Evil Dead one. Of the new Universal ones the only one that really interests me is Jurassic Park. Nothing at my local walmart yet though
