Decisions, decisions. I love the steelbook. Not bothered about this boxset art. Do I wait for the standard and swap out the discs or just buy this anyway - after all, "we care" ;)

Did anyone buy this from arrows uk shop directly? I cant see it on there site.
Yes, strangely when I searched Robocop 4K it didn't come up but just searching for Robocop made it appear. Used some points against it so it made it the cheapest way to order for me too, plus I find Arrow package for delivery really well.

Yep love the steel so that's staying, quite fancy having the box and bigger booklet so could swap out the amaray for the steel to make an "ultimate" set. Or of course don't get the box set and just sell the current steel to rebuy the newer one, no guarantee it'll have the same finish though...

I've pre-ordered the steel for now and see what happens. Your idea of getting the boxset and putting the steelbook in that isn't a bad one mind...
