My favorites are "12 Monkeys" and "Smokin' Aces." Definitely want to get my hands on either one.

Momentum (UK) released Total Recall in a steelbook.

Highlander: Immortal Edition by Optimum (UK) is also in steelbook. Apparently, the German release is also in a steelbook case.

Fox/MGM "Definitive Edition" series is entirely in steelbooks.

Do you mind me asking where you got it from and how much you paid? I would definitely have to make mine R1 too, and I don't want to pay tons just for a case.

Also, does the R1 disc match the R2 case/disc design?

That's so sexy. If I bought it I would really want my disc to match the case though, so I'd probably have to have a copy of that disc cover made to put on my R1 disc.

jackass the movies uncut. R4






**They ruin the case by putting a age restriction sticker on it. The sticker wraps around the spine and onto the back cover.**

The Warriors R4

The Warriors Ultimate Director's Cut. R4

I will probably not purchase any more R4 Steelbooks because of the sticker and the Paramount Banner on the top of the case.

I have a Scandinavian Taxi Driver 2-discer in a steelbook. Dunno whether the steelbook was used elsewhere in Europe, too.

After studying the situation, I was able to remove the age restriction stickers. Both R4 cases have a matte finish and I was worried about scratching the cases.

I cut the sticker at the spine and I was able to remove it without leaving any sticky residue.

^ those are sweet imho. kinda like ws dvd cases

however, they shoulda one-upped it and made the spine on the left side of the case as pictured, as opposed to just putting the artwork sideways blah.

then again, that would pose the problem of storage and shelves meh.
