Now that's nice. Absolute fail it's not 4k though seeing as both Germany and France are having 4k releases.

I’ve been a bit bored with steels lately with zavvi pumping the marvel cashcow dry.

back catalogues rarely float my boat either either but this one is a must for me. 4k or not! And we’ll you know, Jenny Agutter....

Not in slightest tempted by that, its just horrible with or without a slipcase. Happy with my standard Arrow release from last year and the previous steelbook.

No 4K means cheaper price so i might be up for this if its around the €22 Belgium customs limit :D
£18gbp for non slipcase edition. Good price, but I'd rather have paid 25 for a 4k edition. Slipcase is a waste of time too, same art as the interior.

Price is decent i guess.
Didn't pay attention to the spine either... :rolleyes:
Will have to think about it or grab the slipcase version...

Read somewhere else that that the slipcase version is £25.. both links above lead to the steel only listing. Not worth an extra £7 imo, even with a poster.

Good lord. What a mess. Even if it was 4K i’d be on the fence.
