Is it coming??!! You are teasing us with this thread lol!!!
Of course it is
Zavvi being clowns as usual
most unsurprising steelbook announcement of 2014 so far.
i suspect resurrection will be announced in a few weeks.
£24.99 looks like Zavvi are trying to establish this as the new RRP for certain Steelbooks. If Aliens is £14.99 not sure what makes Alien worth £24.99 though
Available to pre-order at Amazon:
Alien - Limited Edition Steelbook [Blu-ray]: Amazon.co.uk: Film & TV
Just the art i wanted to go with the 2nd one. The price is excessive again though on these (and other) releases, Aliens was only £15 (cost me less with discount code) and is confirmed glossy, i do hope this one is too.
Is Aliens only available at Zavvi but the others elsewhere? That's stupid. Let's hope they are all glossy indeed.
Yeah 2 is Zavvi Exclusive and so far 1 & 3 is available at all retailers, i presume 4 will be the same.
£24.99 that is stupid you can buy the 6 disc box set for that maybe even cheaper i wonder if they are the same discs in the steelbooks ??
It's £19.99 @ zavvi
Still should be £14.99 to match Aliens. Nice cover though glad to see they all match the VHS covers the Aliens cover matches the Theatrical Version though as the Extended verions has the Alien on the left had side of the cover and Aliens is not horizontal but vertical.
I expect the Amazon price will come down to £14.99 at some point. Not sure it will be wise waiting on this one though as I suspect it could sell out pretty quick.
Aliens is in stock in case anyone was wondering. Gave in and ordered
As nice as they all are im not double dipping on blu-rays i dont mind replacing my dvd's but i have the boxset already and if i start to purchase the alien steelbooks separately then even at £14.99 its going to be expensive at just under £60 for all 4 films
Zavvi are shipping now if like me you pre-ordered but wonder just how muted the colours will be!
It'll be the same as Aliens so fairly muted compared to the mock up. Aliens still looked good though so as a set i'm sure they'll look pretty good together.
Mine turned up today its flawless no scratches, marks etc etc. As expected its very dull/muted colour take out about 50% of the online store pic is more accurate. Alien is also written in plain large white letters on the side the font alone takes up over 50% of the spline!
Alien on the front cover is embossed though but apart from that another dull release I only bought as I can sell my Anthology boxset as I cannot watch 3 + 4 again they are terrible the series ended @ Aliens for me!
They've embossed this? I guess 3 & 4 will be then as well and the Zavvi Aliens will be the odd one out.
Im hoping he means deboss and hes just mistaken. Otherwise 3 with a border and 1 without will completly kill "these will look good together"
Fox do like to emboss a lot of their steels so it probably is embossed. The set will look odd but then if the Zavvi one had been glossed as planned then it still would have been the odd one out as the other 3 were always likely to be matte.
Only planning to get the first 2, possibly no.3, won't look too bad i guess, the Zavvi one will have an embossed one either side of it so it'll kind of work.....
lol, they just don't know how to get things right for consumers do they. No thought or planning going into anything. Fox are distributers for all 4 films, yet they all turn out unequal in production. It just sucks really, a bit like Die Hard, which is a different reason I know, but still. We are the guys paying for these and we are collectors of a series. Why can't they get it right? Why can't they release all 4 at the same time across the board and each one be the same in production?
All 4 glossed or all 4 embossed, I don't really care as long as they look good side by side.
They got it right with the designs, it is just the physical aesthetics that are lacking.
Surely they could have pushed this so all 4 were glossed AND embossed?
I think somebody just needs to upload some pics
Rapta sakd (he works at hmv) these are debossed so could still be good!
Some one else has said Alien 3 is embossed.... we need pics
