    Am I the only getting annoyed to see a steelbook release then finding out that there's another Collector's Edition available that will likely include more discs? I ordered this steelbook even though I have the UK Final Cut and the U.S. 5 BD/DVD set but then I found out that there's a 4-disc Collector's Edition coming out with a model spinner and artbook. The steelbook will likely just be a single disc. I want both but wish that the Collector's Edition had included the steelbook as well (aren't steelbooks supposed to be collectible?). :(

    I've pre-ordered this and the Collectors Set. Ive got the briefcase already of course. I did sell my 5-disc US amaray a while back which paid for the briefcase though! Its Blade Runner so for me its like Jaws is to Mr Quint! (but maybe not so extreme...;))

    Gone are the days, when getting a STEELBOOK was getting a collectible. Everything gets a STEELBOOK now.

    the worse thing about this release as well as the comments above is, its more expensive than the recent play waves, its a single disc so not even dangerous days doc, and its being released right on top of a new collectors edition, not to mention that it is available everywhere so its not even an exclusive steelbook.


    all of the above adds up to cash-in..the cover is so so aswell...im gonna pass on this and go for the collectors edition instead.

    Is the transfer for this actually any different to say the existing US 5 disc set?

    I bet it isnt. There are no signs that the Final Cut will be any different whatsoever.

    I'm not a fan of this series, don't like the white tone artwork on the steelbooks for all these films.

    So is the forthcoming anniversary edition not a new transfer? And is this steel not the anniversary edition?

    The steelbook is just the Final Cut disc id imagine. The 30th anniversary edition is something different altogether, all 5 cuts and lots of tat (tat I like btw!) :)

    I actually don't mind the artwork for this one and since I don't already own it, I may grab it if they reduce the price after release.

    Amazon describe these as 'Premium Collection Steelbooks' I am intrigued to know what is going to set them apart from other Warner releases enough to call them 'Premium'?

    I think the artwork is stolen from their Premium Collection Digibooks, so they just used the name aswell. I don't think there's anything premium about these releases over the regular amaray versions.

    Yeah I think my orders for these are going to cancelled untill some more info comes to light or real pics are released.
    They're retail wide anyway so not really any need to pre-order.

    I was going to get this steelie as it looks nice, but 1 disc vs the 3 disc digibook from the US? No contest this time sadly... If they'd put all cuts etc. in I'd have gone for this but there we go...

    I think the studio say Premium = Steelbook case, though the reality is premium = price.

    The digibook isn't the full thing either, the 5 disc version that came out a few years back has even more content. I've still not watched the work print version.

    Blade Runner is all time no 1 file (I know I'm not alone in that) but they are really milking now. You never know it may just fund the making of Blade Runner 2

    Same here, cancelled my pre-order a month ago. I'm seriously going to think about getting the U.S. digibook though. :)
