While I agree that the steelbooks don’t look steller, they’re look better than the ones I already have, They were just flat poster art. These will do nicely and they’re only a little more expensive than the regular Blu Rays.
Haven't got the steelbooks but had a flick through the extended cut or fellowship and two towers today and they are a worth upgrade.Any reviews of the actual transfer yet?
Hard to tell about the steelbook physical quality from the pictures but I'll be disappointed if they look cheap after costing £100
Just got mine from zavvi, was in it's shipper box and absolutely ruined! For a £100 item why pack it this way!!
Here we go again trying to get a replacement!
It just concerns me that copies of the Hobbit arrived the next day. So why is this so far behind?
Mines getting sent back! Got the 20% goodwill gesture first. For an item that's £100 you want it in mint condition. Very bad sending it out in the shipper box, no packing at all. Got the hobbit one on the way too so I guess that's been sent out the same way and will be going back too.
Anyone else had theres from zavvi?
Is anyone going to be getting more stock?
Amazon will probably offer money back... If so il request at least for the price to matched to the standard version....
Just sack the outer packaging off. That’s what I always do for these sets.Mine arrived from Amazon earlier. I had it set up as a gift order so it was reasonably packaged and arrived undamaged, The steenbook is okay, nothing special. My main complaint is the outer tin is unnecessarily large. I was hoping this the Hobbit steelbook would take up less space on the shelf than by Hobbit and LOTR theatrical and extended Blu Rays but the steelbooks take up more room. I've had a skim through the 3 LOTRs and am very impressed by the picture and sound.
