that EXACT same page has been up when you search "steelbook" for like the last 6 months. i dunno why. you'd think they'd change it and add some of their new exclusive steelbooks to the list or something.

but i think someone posted a while back that ALL steelbooks are now $14.99, or like 80% of them excluding the recent "i am legend" steelbook and some others

doubtful, considering how long it's been available. it seems to be pretty ubiquitous. it does look great however! (aside from saying "1.5" on it, which still annoys me).

What, there's a new release of Fight Club coming out? God, I hope they do a Blu Ray release too.

I love how it saids $16.99 Steelbook DVD Sale but when you look at the our prices for the four DVDs, none are $16.99 - we have three at $14.99 and one at $19.99. Also it saids a $3 savings on each DVD and only one of them is actually $3 off. LOL!

As a Marvel comics fan who collecting heavily 1992-1997, I say "SCREW YOU!"

Haha, I was just thinking the other day as I was cataloging my collection how many "limited edition foil covers" I have. But they ARE quite shiny...

I'm also a defensive comic book fan who got burned by my obsessive "investments" in the early 90's.

But considering this is a forum where people search through stores to get perfect slipcovers on their dvds, I don't see liking steelbooks as a big deal.

I think it's more like I got screwed for falling for the multiple foil covers bullshit.

BENEFITS OF STEELBOOKS:

1. Take up less shelf space (the difference may be slight, but stack a dozen steelbooks next to a dozen keep cases).
2. Simpler access to DVDs than most foldout "Special Editions" (ie: Fight Club), you don't have to unfold several times.
3. Provide better defense against fire and artillery. Join together 4 Robocops and you have yourself a breastplate.

"I'd buy THAT for a dollar!"

Steelbook also has the added protection of the steel, which comes in handy if you have a dog heh.

Picked up a copy of Bourne 3. Not sure if I'll keep it. It's the lamest of all my steelbooks and it looks very out of place next to Bourne 1 + 2.

The U.S. release has an exclusive bonus disc with it though. Isn't that reason enough to keep it?
