I love this film, I don't really need the steelbook but I've ordered it anyway lol!!
Me too, got the email about this afternoon and stuck in an order straight away. I wouldn't expect it to sell out but I missed out on Fright Night so made sure I got my order in for this.
Just for effect I put a bra on my head when I ordered.

Mine arrived today. The front is okay, Weird Science and the earings on Kelly shine when held at an angle to the light. The rear is shocking, low res pic and the colours are washed out. In hand the rear looks worse than the pic in the first post.
The enclosed booklet has a nice photo of Robert Downey (he wasn't Jr. in this) with a bra on his head. I don't suppose there's much chance of getting a Tuff Turf steelbook as another movie from 1985 with Robert Downey in a supporting role.
Love this movie, really looking forward to watching it again and going through the numerous extras. Slightly disappointed with the quality of the seelbook but this was always going to be a must buy for me.
