    If steelbook.com offered custom made steelbooks for any film of TV series that you design what would you have?

    You can choose the front art, back art embossing or debossing, inside art work, G1 or G2 sized and number of discs it could hold.

    Good call on the sopranos. I was thinking about some G1 sized Walking Dead steelbooks. I'd love to find some good artwork and have an embossed title. That's be mint.

    Steelbooks.com could easily do it I think. They'd obviously be a bit pricey but well worth it I think

    And thanks to whoever corrected my spelling mistakes in the title. It was winding me up.

    I might get shouted at for saying this, but I would love to see some Top Gear steelbooks! Embossed Stig and title on the front and Jezza & co on the back, posing with your favourite fantasy motor (mine being the Bowler Wildcat).

    Maybe an entire series in one steelbook and seperate steelbooks for each of the challenges DVD`s that have already been released?

    Its been said numerous times already, but we need a Dredd steelbook. Take the artwork and design from the french release. Embossed title, debossed Dredd. Sweet. One of my favourite all time adaptions.

    I would have a Walking Dead steelbook for each season.

    The zombie or 'walker' artwork would look amazing on the front with blood splatters etc.

    Each would be blu-ray sized with 2-3 discs (depending on the amount of episodes of course) and a special features one.

    I don't mind matte or shiny but I would like the weapons they are holding embossed on the front. Not too much of it, just a little.

    SEASON ONE:
    FRONT = Walker with Rick's home town or police station in the background
    BACK = Rick & Shane side by side ready to shoot with a handgun and shotgun
    INSIDE = the Atlanta CDC
    MAIN TEXT COLOUR = Scarlet

    SEASON TWO:
    FRONT = A different walker with the farmhouse in the background
    BACK = A collection of Rick's group i.e. Glenn, T-Dog, Andrea ready to fight with various weapons in hand...
    INSIDE = The barn
    MAIN TEXT COLOUR = Navy Blue

    SEASON THREE:
    FRONT = The two Walkers Michonne had chained together with their jaws and arms cut and the prison in the background
    BACK = Up close The Dixon Brothers ready to fight side by side and in the background The Govenore and Michonne seperately
    INSIDE = Woodbury
    MAIN TEXT COLOUR = Zombie skin green

    I would pay over the odds for those tbf, I'm a HUGE fan!

    I would love a steelbook of Michael Manns The Keep. I know its a bit of a marmite film but I love it in its own quirky way. Would have the main cinema artwork on the front and the silver crosses from the keep on the back. Inside art would be Molasar with Gabriel Byrne just before he kills him. Nice embossing and debossing on it too.

    Would also love a steel of the original 1963 film The Haunting. Front would be a nice embossed Hill House and the back the freaky face wall from the bedroom. Inside art would be the scene in the greenhouse with them all looking at the statue.

    Yes to all of these. Although the only changes I would make would be to keep the main text colour scarlet on all 3 seasons.

    The Dark Knight
    Front
    [​IMG]
    Back
    [​IMG]
    Either that or just a continuation of the front art work
    Inside
    [​IMG]
    Dont know if that's been used in any of TDK steelbooks so far?

    The Dark Knight Rises

    I started this thread and I did see that one before and did think that myself. The reason I went ahead with it is that thread is just asking what films you want in steelbook format. I'm asking if you could make a custom steelbook what would it be? It could be a DVD, Blu ray, or game steelbook. What colours would it have, design, embossing or debossing. It doesn't have to be for a release that isn't available it could be for an existing one as well.

    Yeah I'd like to think this thread encourages people to not just simply list what films they'd like to see released as a steelbook but to put a bit of time and effort into it as well :smashin:

    I would make an Evil Dead Trilogy steelbook, all three films encased in a book of the dead embossed and debossed steel to highlight the feel of the book. Inside art would be possessed Cheryl peeking out from under the cellar door or some nice artwork from inside the book itself.
