Thanks for the pictures, I think that's pretty cool. Too bad I ordered the Blu-Ray off Amazon for the low price, otherwise I probably would have bought this.

It's beautiful. Just picked mine up within the last half hour. I blinded but it's steelbook so it's justifiable.

same here blind buy but wanted to make sure others could see the case before they buy to help they decide what they wanted.. maybe save some a gas trip it if they don't like the book...

Best Buy carries this in the US? I just checked their website and didn't see it listed. I'd make a run on my lunch break if I knew this for a fact.

I love the back cover.

That is weird, Best Buy's website usually always has them for order/in store pickup.

My Best Buy had around 75 copies of this. Rare my ass, lol.

Very pleased with this purchase though. The back cover is awesome!

Mine had a huge display right at the front of the store, which had many copies of the steelbook. And they had the steelbook on the new releases section as well. I would guess about 60 copies.

I got mine, but I am very picky about the paper backing not being bent. I haven't opened it up yet but on all the copies there was some long bump on the back underneath the paper backing. I'm guessing either glue or anti-theft strip.

i'm not sure why half your posts on this one DVD is claiming this is rare and will be very very limited. the store i went to had at least 50 copies. others are reporting the same amounts. you yourself reported at least 30-50!

kids, there is no need to bust a gut over this thing. take your time, breathe easy. they will be there after work tonight and most likely in the next few days. beyond that i would presume as well since there are so many copies to be had. looks like another "Bourne Ultimatum" which i literally saw 40 or so still there on the Best Buy racks today.

i noticed that too on nearly all the copies. luckily, i found one with no ridge. i thought maybe that the ridged ones had something extra attached back there, but reason took over and i just got the flat one.

I wasn't as worried about the glue as I was about the two halves of the Steelbook being lined up. I had to look through about 20 copies to find one on which they were even.

Bought mine today. Very nice!

By the way no way this thing is very rare. My store must of had over 100 of them. They were everywhere.

I'd imagine the stores don't have any of the standard two-disc sets, only the steelbooks. So if you ordered the two-disc for instore pick-up you'd probably get the steelbook. Thats what happened with Live Free or Die Hard at least.

My paper backing wasn't attached. No glue or anything.

It doesn't seem to be a uniform thing with steelbooks. My copy did have the paper attached, and several other steelbooks that I have did too, but others I have didn't.

At my Best Buy there were some I Am Legend steelbooks, but not a huge number. Maybe 20, maybe less. There were however tons of Bourne Ultimatum steelbooks left over. Easily 40. I distinctly remember there being hundreds when they first came out in the biggest display I've ever seen at Best Buy. So if anyone still wants one, they're out there.
