    ...will be re-promoted and re-issued (Metal Tin Version) in the UK from November 10th. A great opportunity for people to pick this up if you missed it last year. This info was listed in a Warner forthcoming release retail booklet.:smashin:

    I read the above as:

    "Those with a Region 2 tin who are looking to sell it, should do so NOW"

    :D

    An rrp of £59.99 was stated. No mention of DTS. The original region 2 version did not have this did it?
    As far as i am aware it is a straight reproduction of last years box set. The attraction being the availability of the metal tin.

    bit of a rip-off if you ask me - especially if its identical - the price should have come down by now.

    Here's an idea - buy the standard version, then ask you grandad if he still has his old army mess tin - much more authentic..

    Or just buy the Korean R3 if you want that military feel to it.

    Better off getting that from Yesasia as you won't get stung by customs then. (£59 delivered from them).

    Everywhere seems to of upped the price to 50.99 or more for the tin.
    A couple of weeks ago Choices where doing it for 29.99 :eek:

    If you can settle for the standard box instead of the tin DVD Crave are doing it for 17.79 + post http://www.dvdcrave.com/products/product.jsp?pid=101

    My tin is still sealed and unwatched and I bought it last November lol, 13 months sat unwatched :rotfl:
