WARNING WARNING WARNING


Do not buy the James Bond 20 SteelBook Mega set from DVDGO.com

The 20 James Bond SteelBooks are not available and never were available.
DVDGO.com has also not corrected their website on this error.

Thank you very much.

I think you can get one from the British Blu-devil
Thanks Xage He's already looking into it for me, I thought there was an easier way so that I wouldn't have to bother him that's all. Again, thanks for sharing!

Which country exactly do these originate from? I see the back says Region 2 & 5, and they include Scandinavian subtitles, yet I can't find any Nordic stores that sell them...

i 'won' a steelbook copy of Jacky Brown on e-bay this morning.

Thing is, in the middle of auction, the bidder changed the item description and revealed its not actually a steelbook, but rather, a steel case.

So i'm not too pleased about that. Not completely livid as i bid a reasonable price, lesson learnt.

I will post pictures when the dvd arrives, so hopefully others don't make the same 'mistake' i did.

Oh, yes Happy New Year! To all steelbook collectors. May this year bring many exciting editions.

I would not pay for this movie because the seller changed the description after you placed your bid. I would also report this seller to eBay for what is called a bait and switch.

Can you PM the sellers ID to me?

The Dark Knight steelbook R2 (germany)







I was disappointed that it doesn't have the double sided design, with the joker on the reverse side. Also, the steelbook has a matt surface, rather than a shiny one. so the colours are dull and muted.

Not sure about it, the future shop one looks a lot better. But great film.

Its impossible to change the description after a bid is placed, you can add to it but thats it, the original ad cant be revised.

Doesn't that just mean that it is copy protected? Not sure on blue rays.

*WARNING: NOT A STEELBOOK* Jackie Brown (steel case) R2 Netherlands

This is the update of that Jackie Brown 'steelbook' i was talking about earlier.















The most notable differences are the spines. They also feel more 'tinny,' this one makes a noise when you open it.

The integration of plastic and tin is not as well done as the steelbook.

To add insult to injury, the dvd was loose inside the case, shaking around inside.

They have a similar dimension to a steelbook.

Just wish i would have done more research before purchasing this 'steelbook' instead of just trusting the sellers description (as you do.)

Over all, i think it just feels 'cheaper' all around, not to the same level of quality as a steelbook, but still a lot more attractive than a standard plastic case.

Hi, i got that dvd recently. I just kept checking the sites (ebay, amazon and play.com) until one appeared. Keep checking the new and used or sellers market on amazon and play.com.

I waited until one appeared that actually stated it was a steelbook. Otherwise you could end up with a standard edition dvd.

Yeah, it kind of looks like it's put together like a tin but with the dimensions of a steelbook. Still kinda cool.
