************! That's really nice, but too high for me when I already have it on Blu.

I actually quite like the Body Snatchers steelbook. Sure, it's got a Christian recruitment DVD vibe about it, but there's something otherworldly about it that appeals.

Bear in mind that Arrow take your money straight away.
Not sure about the art, think I prefer what they were using when it was first announced.
After lots of moaning Arrow have changed the artwork back to the original version.

edit: They wanted £3 for delivery so I went with Amazon for a shade less.

Are you in the UK, delivery should be free? First time I bought something there it was telling me I'd have to pay delivery until I actually created an account then the charge disappeared.

In other news Zavvi have a 24hr steel sale. Nice of them to drop Evil Dead 2 so soon after release

Iron Man 3 arrived yesterday, and intact from Zavvi which is nice

Obviously a little pricey but looks really nice!

Are there steelbooks available for X-men Last Stand, and X-men first Class?

I like the look of X-Men and X2 steelbooks so would like all four in a row if possible.

Yummy looking exclusive steelbook for The Wolverine only available through stores at HMV. 3D too, so, although no price announced yet, I wouldn't expect it to be cheap.

Pre-ordered one instore a few weeks ago and the guy said it was listed at £35, but he assumed that was a placeholder price. Judging by HMVs recent steelbook prices though I imagine it will be over £20, £25 probably.

Remember that Zavvi steelbook of Rocketeer that was sold out two weeks after listing, five months before its September release date?

I found out where they all went...

The Ghibli steelbooks have all shot up to £21.50 from the original listed price on Amazon on about £17

Bad Amazon!

Sad isn't it

Anyone interested in the Big Trouble in Little China steelbook might like to know it's currently £13.99 directly from Arrow. It does have some new extras so that's my excuse for double dipping
I assume this is a similar situation to Invasion of the Body Snatchers and the price will go up to £16.99 in a week or two. Don't forget Arrow will take your money straight away.

I really like that poster. It's ruined though by having "3D" on the front.
