    The bust is similar to what was released years ago with the DVD and it is actually pretty good. They went for £150 at one stage.

    Did you buy the bust when it was on sale the first time?

    So you guy's don't think it's worth it then?

    Some good close up views of it on this video
    I, Robot | Limited Edition | Sonny Head Box...


    Might help you decide if it's worth it, but it's pretty expensive though.

    Just found this on Homecinemachoice...

    "20th Century Fox has revealed that the Will Smith sci-fi blockbuster I, Robot will be coming to 3D Blu-ray later this year and will be the first in a series of the studio's so-called 'legacy films' that will undergo stereoscopic conversion specifically for re-release of 3D Blu-ray. The announcement came during the NAB 2012 trade show, which is currently taking place in Las Vegas.

    The Hollywood studio is working with JVC Kenwood using a new low-cost conversion stereoscopic conversion process. 'Current 2D-3D conversions can cost $50,000 to $70,000 per minute, meaning feature films can cost $10million to $15million in total and take 600 to 700 people nine months or so to produce' stated Susumu Sakakibara, Director Video-Tech and General Manager Business Development, JVC. 'With this service, a feature like I, Robot can take three people three months to convert at a third of the price'.
    "

    So basically a cheap 3d conversion !
