There was a UK version being released by 'Entertainment Store' on Play.com: http://www.play.com/DVD/Blu-ray/4-/42863152/-/Product.html

Sold out though. Sorry!

That one was way too expensive and far more than i'd pay for a non 3D steelbook.

Amazon France seem to have it - a couple of euros more than .nl and the shipping is reliable from there.

Yes i saw that one and i admit it is tempting, although i haven't pulled the trigger yet. I'm not sure i'll enjoy the movie.

I've bought a few steelbooks recently, thankfully they've not really cost me more than the non steelbook versions would (apart from North by Northwest) so I've not had to justify the cost to myself.

I currently own

   

    

And I'm awaiting delivery of the following

Crikey, I have 6 of those. Not Casablanca I think because I got the Ultimate Collectors Edition a few years back. I do also have the larger set of Maltese Falcon (it comes with the '31 and '36 version) but I got it in a deal with Treasure

Only Treasure of the Sierra Madre for me. I already own NBN and didn't want to double dip on that, the others are really nice but the movies aren't really my cup of tea. Something i also found out about Treasure of Sierra Madre when i watched it

I had to buy Treasure for the HoF and most of the DVD's were going for only a couple of quid cheaper than the steelbook (which seems to be the only version of the bluray available) at the time so I thought it was worth the outlay. Treasure started me off on my current Bogart obsession (of sorts) and if I wanted The Maltese Falcon on bluray I, again, had to buy the steelbook. The steelbook of Casablanca was a birthday gift from the wife and the MoC releases I got from amazon marketplace for 11.99 each which was only 20p more expensive than buying the non steelbook editions. 

I will admit that Repo Man is a blind buy though and I only bought it because I really, really like the cover . All the others are films I like but didn't already own.

I acquired a cinema reserve steelbook of My Darling Clementine when my Grandad passed away. Not sure if it's worth putting on ebay or not.

It doesn't look as if it goes for much. Which is a pity as it's a lovely set.

That's what I noticed. It's not really a film I'm interested in so it's just lying around.

1.) Ebaying a memento of a deceased relative. Chirst, this generation. SMH.
2.) My Darling Clementine is one of the greatest films ever made. Are you not interested in cinema?

Firstly, it's not a memento, it's just a dvd he owned. Please don't talk about me and my grandfather like that when you know nothing about us. I don't care if you were kidding or not, because it's not funny.

It's not my kind of film. I do apologise for not having the exact same taste as you, but funnily enough that's what happens when people are, ya know, different.

elab, that does interest me, yes, thanks for letting me know. I've never actually seen it so it would be a fantastic opportunity to pick it up, and despite a few niggles i'm a big fan of Arrow in general, as a tiny company they do really well with their releases, pushing a lot of cool cult titles that may not get much attention if it weren't for their efforts. I'll keep an eye on this Lifeforce steelbook!

They had a very quick sale today and, in passing, mentioned Lifeforce. Cheese of the highest order, but of the very guilty pleasure sort.

Doubtlesswonder's more pointed and understandable response has already demonstrated pretty clearly why having snark as your go-to post-mode is exceedingly tiresome.

Isn't calling it snark downplaying what's actually a nasty and fairly obviously trolling post? There's no point to that post other than to direct attention towards himself by upsetting someone else.

The reason we ask for PMs or Mod Tickets is that generally, not always, but generally, we don't think it's on to have this kind of discussion about another poster on the Board. Even when in the right.

If there is a formal complaint in there, please use the ticket system.

What does anything anyone writes have to do with anyone? What does what I write have to do with you? If you write something on an Internet message board you are putting it up with the knowlege that it may be commented upon.

I expressed my opinion, another tenant of an Internet message board.

I do apologize to doubtlesswonder if he found my opinion offensive or upsetting. It was not intended as such.

Saw a bunch of new (to me anyway) steelbooks in HMV yesterday: Edward Scissorhands, Predator 2, Robocop, Firefly: Complete Series & a few others. All of them looked really shoddy, like the designers had just slapped any old pic they could find on the front & back & just thought "**** it, people will buy anything if it's a steelbook"
