French release from 2011 was similar with debossing.
Didn't realise it was Arrow, there goes the treatment then :( (probably zero finish then)

French release shown here.
If it had inside art, it would be unbeatable imo.


I wouldn't call that similar imo, and there's nothing wrong with a zero finish, this will look great I'm sure, Drew Struzan art ftw. 4K restoration too, not missing out on this one.

I do apologise, instead of similar, i ment to say better :p
Just kidding ;)
You're going for the £25 or wait it out a bit?
Zavvi with code maybe?

Yeah will see what Zavvi with code will be. Arrow store takes payment up front IIRC so won't be with them and Amazon will probably still cost more even when they eventually settle on a price.

I got the code working too nice Halloween release date and 4k remaster should look stunning just thinking of getting a spare 2 disc insert to put the the thing prequel disc in with this steelbook that would fit nicely.
