Looks like the next DC animated film "Batman vs. Two Face" might not be getting a steelbook at Target. Looks like their exclusive this time will be lenticular packaging for it.

And thus ends my collection of DC animated films

Yeah, I just can't see myself spending the money on them unless it's a steelbook.  Oh well.

You can, though it's a Region 2 release via Zavvi:

They didn't announce a HQ and Batman steel until like the week before release.

I think the difference here is that they are already advertising an exclusive lenticular slip cover. I doubt Target would have 2 different exclusives.

In other news, I had my third damaged steelbook from Target.com fullfillment, which is being done by a third party company, Baker & Taylor Books, which also supplies other vendors, plus libraries.   I emailed them when I had this third one, and it's at least gone to some other email address inside of Baker & Taylor from my initial email to them.

They won't.  We're not getting a SB from Target if they announced something else.   I'll go pick up the Zavvi SB and have it be a kick in the backside to get a region-free player already.

I really don't like how Target rose the price of their DC steelbooks to $19.99 starting with Batman and Harley Quinn. I don't want this to be the new standard just because they assume we're OK with that and buy them anyway. Better Target stop while their ahead.

If BB ends up getting the DC Steelbooks, they'll probably charge a $5 premium over Target

And as if we didn't have enough oddities with steelbooks, we now have two (2) different Game of Thrones Season 7 steelbooks. 

One has the term "Red Egg" in its title and the product link, at $79.99:

The other one has the term "Creme Egg" in its title and product link, at $57.99:
https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6023909

No idea about the differences.   Won't know more closer to release and we see cover art. 

These are now "on sale" $49.99, $5 off the regular price of $54.99.   The image pic of the Red one is up there on the summary item page as well as the detail item page, the Cream Egg one shows on the summary page though not the larger image on the detail page.  I'd assume the same look at the Red one, though with a cream colored egg magnet. 

 

There's also a Sigil version coming of Season 7, though no pictures of it yet:

Sucks the $10 GC promo doesn't apply to pre-orders of these. : \

It does for the Red Egg one, not the Creme Egg one.  Look closer.   You just have to find another one to go with.

I ended up pre-ordering it when it was $57.99 with the Creme Egg one at the $79.99 price, so it worked for that promo.  I'm waiting for the prices to auto-adjust down to the $49.99 price.

No, I saw that but when clicking on the promotion page it hadn't listed it as one of the eligible titles so I thought it was possibly excluded. Wasn't sure if I'd end up having to fight CS to get the GC and even at $40, I felt that was just too much for a season anyway. My OCD is already going off as it is about having such inconsistent boxes between BD+DVD, just BD and now steelbooks lol.

I got the WW 4K SB today, and I have to say I'm not a fan of the outside art.

I'm going to have to exchange it, if not return it. Mine came in a box, but had two dents on the front. So it was either during manufacturing or at the warehouse. But I'm not paying $38 for a damaged steelbook. I barely tolerate the ones under $10.

I went with the Target digipak for Wonder Woman.   Anyone else do the same?  I like the series of DC superhero digipaks they have been doing.  They're up to four in the series now and they make a nice little collection.  

 

I'm also tired of these $35 steels, basically paying double what you should for the movie. My feelings were fortified when the previous one, Suicide Squad, no one bought it and then it was available for $18 later during a sale.

I went for the digipack too.  Normally, I go for steelbooks, but that artwork is horrible.  Plus, I agree, not liking those overly priced steelbooks.  So it wasn't even close to being worth it for me.  If I hadn't gotten the digipack, I think I would have liked the regular bluray since the cover is cool.

I don't mind $35 for a steelbook if it includes everything, but they left the 3D disc out of the WW steelbook.

This won’t be sale or last through the end of the week

This is only this price because it’s a 4K steelbook. This is how WB has been pricing these unfortunately. I don’t have a 4K tv yet but know I will eventually so I figure paying an extra $5-$10 for the 4K disc, future proofing my collection, is worth it. I do get how others feel differently though.

SS lingered and went on sale because the movie was at best mediocre. WW was a critical and commercial success, it’s not going to linger like SS did.

I also bought the Target exclusive, mainly because I have all the previous DC movies in the Target exclusive books.  I just wish it was as cheap as the previous ones.

I skipped the WW steel as well and went with the Best Buy 3D exclusive with the character cards for $27.99.  Can't justify these $35+ steelbooks when they don't include 3D as well.  Not preordering the new Spider-Man as well even though it has seen a slight discount to $32.99.  Likely getting the 3D of that as well (currently $25.99 at BB).

$35 is Japanese blu-ray pricing, so I definitely don't want to pay that. I heard WW is great though, so I am worried that I may not get one as I will wait for a price drop.

Every once in awhile I get burned waiting and have to overpay on Ebay, which sucks...

Sure, 4K is going to add to the price, but GotG Vol. 2 was the same price, and that steelbook included the 3D copy as well.

I wish they'd just go back to offering the steel as a pre-order bonus and give us the option of what to buy for it. They lost a sale from me because WW was 4K only.

That's a rarity though. That said, the deluxe $35 should come with all format considering physical media is going to keep suffering.
