Steelbook Worldwide Exclusive 2017

I really like it. And judging by the general reception of the Logan cover, I don't think I'm alone.

I don't mind that it's a sketched cover like Logan as I liked that one.  With this one the artist need a few more classes in perspective drawing as WW comes off as looking as a she's a deformed mutant to me.  It just looks off, it almost makes me think that it's some time of 3D lenticular cover.  Hopefully it will look better on the actual case.

I agree with some others here that the WW art looks a little off.  I guess it's a good thing that I've been buying the Target exclusives for the DC movies so I won't have to flip flop over this one.

Disappointed by the cartoony cover.

Disappointed by the lack of 3D in this and the new Spider-Man steelbook.  Think I will just get the 3D combo pack for less and pass on the steelbooks.  Can't really afford to keep spending $65 to double dip on these titles.

I agree, but at this point, I'm glad they are putting out 3D releases at all.

Thanks for mentioning 3D and Wonder Woman together. I hadn't seen it as even listed until checking after reading your post.

Finally got around to watching my Logan and Ghost in the Shell steels and I think this is the first time both the artwork and movie have sucked. Both movies were a chore to get through and the art is nothing worthy of displaying. Wonder if I can offload them even opened to at least recoup the money spent on them. : \

Ghost In the Shell was a bit bland and forgettable but Logan was one of the best of the year so far. Let me know how much you are selling it for, I have a buddy who was never able to get a copy

Picked up my copy of Alien Covenant at lunch, they had two regular copies and two 4K copies left. Also had one copy of Kong Skul Island out.

Pretty sure you can recoup your costs on Logan.

My Aliens steelbook came damaged, and there's nothing left in stock.

 

It's not damage I've seen before. The spine is kinda pushed out and warped on one side, but there's no visible damage anywhere else. But it no longer aligns to close. I'm assuming the plastic warped, and not the steelbook itself. But I didn't open it so I can still return/exchange it.

I returned my 5th Element steelbook with similar damage to your Alien Covenant. Just had to get a store locally otherwise they would have shipped another.

I arrived at my local Best Buy around 10:05, and they were completely out of Alien: Covenant 4K steelbooks. On the plus side, they did still have a small number of the regular steelbooks, so that's what I ended up with. The art on the steelbook is nice, quite a creepy, unsettling composition. I'm glad I didn't wait, as these stellbooks seemed to have gone very quickly.

 

I will be visiting Best Buy in the morning for the next two weeks as well. Next week is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II, and the week after that is the Lion King re-release. Both of those steelbooks are going to go very quickly.

The same exact thing happened to my Alien 4K steelbook.  Doesn't look like there are any actual dents in the case but it doesn't look like it closed correctly and appears warped, especially at the bottom.  And of course I can't exchange it since all local stores are sold out.  It doesn't look too bad and as long as it closes somewhat I may just keep it.  It does sound like a lot of copies of this release were affected by this just from perusing the thread at blu-ray.com.

I'm curious as to why you didn't preorder GOTG Vol. 2 or the Lion King?  Both were available for preorder for a long time.  I find that I'd rather preorder and not have to stress about getting to a store at 10am to hopefully snag a copy.  Most steelbooks arrive undamaged for me (except of course the last Alien steelbook).

I just don't pre-order store-exclusive steelbooks. I live in an area where I have fairly easy access to two different Best Buys, so it's not like I'm without options. And until more recently, it hasn't been as hard to get my hands on these. When they first started doing these steelbooks, they would be available for as much as a week after launch. It's only in the past year or so that they have started selling out quickly. And while I like the steelbooks, I don't need them. If I miss out on getting one, it's not the end of the world.

Must be nice to be able to hit a BB on release day.  Some of us aren't so lucky with a shortage of free time, which is why we pre-order stuff.

I have a late afternoon start time now, makes it a bit easier but when I was I working mornings it was impossible.

I looked around last night and there was only one store 40 minutes away. I skipped this release because I got it from Amazon for $23 but would have definitely made an order.

TBT: Lion King steel looks like shit!!! Disappointed they didn't make a lenticular cover, skipping that one too.

Is there anything different about the Lion King from the previous Blu-ray releases?  I got the exclusive one from Target a few years back that had a lenticular cover and... maybe 3D?  It had a digital download for the soundtrack, though.  Anyway, if there's nothing different about this disc compared to previous releases, I won't be getting the SB, not that I really planned on double dipping for it.

Yea, the previous Zavvi Lion King steelbook was better, and it was 3D.

Hmm, I just checked and I have a digital copy of The Lion King in my library and I assume it's from the Blu-ray I have. Even more reason not to get the SB, then.

Same exact thing, only thing I've read was something about clouds being included again. I don't know if they are talking about the subliminal message "sex" controversy that went around years ago.

I have to agree on the cover of the upcoming Lion King steel-book. The art they are using for that is very underwhelming. It's always disappointing to see lackluster art on these things. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol II steel-book coming out next week is going to have movie-appropriate custom art, just like the original Guardians of the Galaxy steel-book. That's how you do it right. This copy-paste job on the Lion King set? Weak-sauce.
