So it's a mini-steelbook with just the digital codes?

Supposedly its very limited and not at all Gamestops.  I would even venture to say a handful in your area actually have it.

This one is pretty out there.  I wonder if this is a one-off  promotional thing or the beginning of something.  I'm trying to track one of these down without having to drive 30 miles for it.

Unless I read it wrong, I just redeemed mine on Vudu and its HDX. When you get the full sized steelbook there is another code in there that should be 4k and hopefully movies anywhere. I usually sell my codes but this went right into my account before I could grab the code. The Vudu code is different from the one on the card. 

FYI - I just redeemed the code on my card at Vudu and it gave me the UHD version.

 

If you were to open the initial website in an incognito browser where you aren't signed in to Vudu (or wherever) you can catch the code in the URL.  I actually pulled the code out of the URL and entered that into the Vudu redemption page.  I doubt that made a difference, but that's what I did.

Also, to beat a dead horse just one more time - When you redeem your code on www.continentalvip.com, you have the option to buy JW1 or JW2 in UHD for $3.99.  Not a bad value in my eyes.  I upgraded my HD JW1 to UHD this way.

Here are a few up close pics of the John Wick 1&2 case from GameStop:

The card in the case works the same way as the card that comes with the John Wick 3 case, but it lets you unlock 1 & 2 instead.

How do you know which Gamestops got these? I already have the first 2 in 4k but would love the mini steelbook to match the other mini one.

^ worst UHD disc in existence.   Don't buy T2.  It has been DNR'd to death and scrubbed clean of all detail.  It has wax figure people.

You have to call or go in and they will tell you which area stores have it, it’s not searchable on their website or app

Thanks, tracked one down and they are holding it for me. It's 35 miles away but better than buying on ebay.

Sorry for the late response, but have them search for SKU 203605.  A store close to me tried have a store 30 miles away transfer one to their store, but I ended up just going to the distant store (extended my work lunch hour a bit, which is fine by me).

Picked up Justice League for $7.99.  Also, did the individual Matrix movies for $12.99 each.  The Matrix Trilogy is also available for $29.99 but I decided to get the individual steels. 

 

Very nice sale. Think it is only for Friday only as it was in the DOTD link on the site.

I have the Matrix trilogy steelbook, it's nice but it doesn't come with regular blu-rays. I grabbed Justice league even though I have the other version. Also grabbed The Meg again because my cat climbed on mine and scratched the hell out of it.

I can't figure out which Matrix 4K to buy.  If I already own the Ultimate Matrix Collection, would I be fine with The Matrix Trilogy 4K SB set or would I still benefit from buying the individual Matrix movies 4K SB?  My personal preference is leaning me more towards the 4K Trilogy because I like the price better and I like the kitty cat on the cover.

I have both the DVD and Blu-ray Ultimate collections, and I still went with the individual steelbooks. Figured it would look better as separates once the Matrix 4 steelbook is released.

However, the metal on my case is so thin it's a little flimsy.

Anybody make it out to a Best Buy and get a chance to see quantity available on each these Disney steelbooks in store?  Interested in them but like most, willing to wait for a sale.  Doesn't look like they're selling out online.

 

Steelbooks are always weird though. I figured due to the low ratings, I could wait for a sale on Dark Phoenix and there's no preorders within 35 miles of me.

Passing on all these worthless Pixar steelbooks.  There will be a some more to buy in a few weeks with GotG, Doctor Strange, and Ant-man.  Also art has leaked for some of the upcoming Disney Animation Studios steelbooks and they look amazing, like import quality.

See there are going to be so many more great ones to buy.  You gotta prioritize, and should easily skip the boring Pixar steels. Disney is bombing us with releases right now and it's out of control.  My store had about 10+ of each Pixar on display though. 

 

I went to Best Buy on Tuesday specifically to get the Casino 4K steelbook but it doesn't it doesn't look very nice at all with a very lackluster, dull finish.  So I picked up the standard edition slip instead which looks excellent.

I’m a Disney/Pixar fan but can’t being myself to spend $35 each on that crap artwork. There have been prior steelbook/metalpak/ironpack releases with better artwork that I already have so I’ll just buy the 4K discs elsewhere and throw them in the better previously releases steels

If recent history with the older Marvel 4K re-releases is an indicator, the sale would be $5 off on occasion.  Maybe there will be a bigger sale for BF or something.

Are these going to be 4K?  That makes the most sense, which means that these will probably be the standard $35 each.  Someone at Disney is hitting the dump button and trying to buy all of these in a short time is going to be painful to EVERYONE.  We need a more "slow burn" approach to these releases, because the Marvel 4K steels are still just sitting there...
