    How is it that this became such a rare steelbook to buy? Is it because there was only a limited production as this goes for ridiculous prices on eBay.

    its now OOP you cant buy it anywhere other than secondhand. thats why the price is so high. plus the fact its a popular film and the steelbook is very desirable to collectors.

    Yeah I was thinking that, fair enough if the hardcore steelbook collectors want it but for me Thor is simply not that great a film to justify a steelbook purchase even under the original pre-order price. Avengers is a different story.

    I think there is more than one troll who works at HMV and delights from time to time at taking the proverbial out of and teasing collectors. It's not the first time they have pulled a stunt like this and it makes no sense at all. Earlier this year they supposedly spent "months" trying desperately to fulfil their Thor Orders and sadly announced that after strenous effors spread over 12 weeks they were unable to source it from anywhere - so where has all this suddenly come from 5 months later ?

    If you want further proof that htis is HMV trolling then you have it on their website - everyone is getting the "item deleted" messages on the order page followed by " we are tring to obtain this item from alternate sources " (which is what they said for 3 months earlier this year) yet the item is still available to order on their product page.:facepalm:

    Well, I've stuck an order in too. I'm not too optimistic as I've had this with HMV before with the District 9 Steelbook :(

    edit: just waiting for the cancellation email now, status says:
    'Item deleted - we are trying to obtain this item from alternate sources'

    Is this HMV's head office version of punking customers when they are bored or trying to avoid going into administration?

    I really wished I ordered this steelbook, at the time I had not seen the film and decided to rent Thor instead in case I didn't like it, I ended up loving the film and wanted to order the steelbook and went on to order and it was out of stock/print.

    I was in exactly the same boat as you. Ended up loving the film and missed the release. I recently bought a copy of the steel (along with the others of the Avengers) and while it was expensive it's a damn good steelbook - I recommend finding one on ebay, taking a deep breath, spend the money and go for it.

    My copy is opened (v good condition though) and I might try to find a sealed copy. Not sure. They are going for quite a lot...

    I got the failed message form HMV the other day.

    Great looking SB but there's no way i'm breaking my £30 limit for a Steelbook:rolleyes:. £50-£80 on ebay it seems. Slightly mad, imo.

    If the film was amazing i'd be half tempted but I only rated it a 7/10.
