Very nice, it'd be even better if the title is embossed or debossed

Looks nice! Im a big steelbook fan, and im not normally one to moan but this is taking the mick now, talk about mass production. Is everything getting a steelbook release? Yet another re-release and a price Tag of over £15. Im getting bored now.

I agree 100% - daft - bored - losing appeal.

Really? These are the kind of films people are always asking for, critically acclaimed 'classics', yet some are still not happy :confused:

I agree, I love this film and really would like to add it to my collection but not at this price. At a tenner I would have per ordered this, Id4, I robot and a few others, £14.99 for a re issue is just too high in my opinion. I am not buying as many as I used to now and think I'm not alone in thinking Zavvi are taking the mick with us collectors.

£10 max. £15 for all these re-issues is a ****-take. Unless people want to keep things so overpriced don't buy them.

^^^ Exactly!! This guy knows what he's talking about! Absolutely nothing against this film/steel as i actually want it but us collectors see a new release steel and instantly pre-order regardless of price just to add it to our collection (most of us anyway), and companies like Zavvi know what where like hence the £15-£16 price tags when they know realistically they can sell them for £10.99-£12. If people are happy to pre-order at £15.99 then they keep producing them at these prices. It'll only get worse, start saying hello to £17.99 re-release steelbooks soon, guarantee it.
Anyways back to topic.

it does look nice but as im now saying no to preordering the batman re-releases im saying no here too.

15 quid is just too much when play sold these sort of things for under 11 quid. and it mounts up when you keep paying 15 quid.

i also presume this would only be 1 disc? ill stick to my lovely uk collectors bluray in the hard outer case with the poster, book, 2 disc digipack etc - great little set and only paid 7 quid used. plus i have the amaray with slip from the sony classics collection, so not going to triple dip here.

Have to agree, I would normally go for this, it being one of my all time favourite movies but £15 is taking the mick and besides I love the collectors boxset from a few years back... im beginning to pass on many steelies at the moment... :suicide:

Would definitely get this if it was the 2-disc release, but it isn't so I'll be getting the slipcover 2-disc :)

Nice to see attention going into the design, but back catalogue releases are way too commonplace now. We want more new release steelbooks!
