I think they've omitted Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan on the disc descriptions. I'm sure that should be in there. Might consider getting at a discount once released and if still available?

8 movies but 6 discs?
Previous Paramount UK 1-8 Box Set Collection Amaray release
Part 5/6 on same disc and 7/8 on same disc

Parts 1/2/3 and Final Chapter had own disc each per film

Total 6 discs

Steelbook would be using same previous paramount UK discs

Thanks, that's useful. They are not short movies and so I guess they just stopped caring about bitrate at that point. I have seen double-sided discs used in the past but they are quite horrible as you can only have a tiny label around the centre hole.

After last time, do I dare say Zavvi are taking the pee with that price? Yes I do. Zavvi are seriously taking the pee.

Absolutely. If you take the Amaray RRP to be £45 then adding £10 for a steelbook should be it at most. In reality, the Amaray collection sells for less than £30.
Deff price on their website for the Steelbook is £74.99

Amazon/HMV I expect will be around the same

The pricing is absolutely disgusting in my opinion.

I've just checked my Amazon account and I bought the 8-movie boxset in September 2019 for £29.99. The discs in this steelbook set are identical and still missing Part 8, 9 and 10 (Jason X) as well as the Freddy vs. Jason spin-off and the Friday the 13th remake.

So that means Zavvi are asking £50.00 just for the steelbook case that house the set!!! For shame. This should be no more than £44.99 in my view as there's nothing new at all beyond the case.

Price (as set by the distributor) is bonkers. Not helped by Zavvi charging £7 more than Deff (inc. UK postage).

I've not heard of Deff before, but it is good to have another retailer on the scene offering pre-orders on new releases.

Deff are not much use for customers based outside UK
Unless you don't mind paying shipping costs that range from £16 to £30 and that's on top of the item price itself

Deff price + shipping also don't include Eu vat so you will have postal/carrier/Courier look for vat payment and also fee for collecting payment

A item that cost £17 on Deff can end up costing you £34 to £50 if you based outside UK
You also need to budget for EU vat and courier fee as well that a separate payment when getting delivery.

Deff are ok for those based in UK but not if you based outside UK as you can get items lot cheaper from other UK retailers



I gather you never worked in a Music/Video Retailer shop as a buyer
As if you did you would know the dealer price is what decides the retail price will be
This why retailers have prices that are around the same for pre order releases they might vary a little

The amount of profit can vary for a retailer it will all depend on how much of a file discount the retailer has with the distributor

Why do you think likes of HMV stopped selling some label releases that was due to not getting a file discount they wanted
As they would not be making enough profit on sales without the file discount


The profit on DVD/Blu-ray releases is not as much as you may think it is
It really all depends on what file discount a retailer has with a distributor

Amazon get the most file discount due the volume of orders they do with a distributors
They can afford to drop prices on pre orders but not all releases as it will depend on the distributor involved that supplies the stock to the retailer


Some labels don't give you any file discount so if you have a lot of stock not sold you often end up selling at a loss when you lower the price
So you need to be very careful when ordering amount of stock when you have a low or no file discount

Didn't we have this conversation before? Surely, if you are not based in the UK you would look at your regional retailers (assuming the title is available). In this case €69.99 from amazon.fr or $59.99 from BestBuy. Unless that is you really enjoy overpaying for your steelbooks. :laugh:

You are correct. My statement that the distributor price is bonkers is still valid though. Setting the dealer price at £35-£50 higher than the Amaray edition is lunacy.

So Zavvi's buyer either didn't negotiate as good of a discount as Deff, or they have decided to take an extra ~10% slice of profit.

Apologies for the mix up with the movies. I meant 9 and 10, not 8, 9 and 10. It's been a while since I watched the 8-movie boxset, which cost me just £29.99, just to remind people how absurd the cost of this steelbook is.

Paramount, similarly, massively overpriced the recent Indiana Jones 4-movie steelbook collection by £30-£40 and skimped on its quality by housing it in the most flimsy easy-to-damage cardboard box imaginable. I can't say, on reflection, that I am that surprised by the pricing of this. They are exploiting their customers in my humble opinion.

I agree. The box was an embarrassment. The Indiana Jones movies deserved so much more, the very best IMHO.

Wow! Amazon’s buyers really negotiated a great deal with the distributor. A full £20 cheaper than Zavvi and presumably there is still some profit in it for them. The experts didn’t see that coming. I predict sudden availability of stock at Zavvi.
