Someone bought them all. I feel bad for those who spent a fortune tracking down the previously OOP Green Lantern steelbook, which was DVD sized.

$19.99 or $24.99 for steelbooks for Blu-rays that have been out for years?

Thanks, but no thanks.

Meh I wouldn't double dip on anything I own for a steelbook I guess. The titles that were re-released that I'd want I own already. The only things I'd maybe conside would be the Nolan Batman films but I'm waiting to see what Warner does for a box set or whatever when The Dark Knight Rises comes out.

Looks like anyone who missed out on The Green Lantern limited edition steelbook can finally get one.

I never picked up Goodfellas but a $19.99 pricepoint isn't going to get me to jump.

I didn't see Goodfellas listed. Old edition, or new one with the extra disc?

I've read these are supposed to be part of an upcoming promotion. For the June 3rd ad, these should be $9.99 each.

Might have to bite on one or two for $9.99.

I like the plug... "See it again... for the very first time."

If there was truth in advertising it would be, "Buy it again... you gullible bitch."

If those all have a $5 coupon for DKR tickets, I might get BB, DK, and The Matrix, since I only own DK already on Blu.

I've already got some of them already, but I wouldn't be opposed to grabbing a couple that I don't have, especially when they go on sale.

If that's the case, I'll upgrade a few and sell back my old copies.

Thanks for the head's up, i'll be on the lookout.

That Matrix one looks damn cool. Yet I have zero desire to rebuy any of these.

Tell me where you are buying blu-ray's at $4-5. LOL at you. These are collectors items to some at least that's how I look at them and some are worth it.

Many of the titles above have been $5-$6. You're not looking hard enough for deals on 3-5 year old titles.

I've always thought the Blu-ray books are a better gimmick package than steelbooks personally. They look a lot classier on the shelf. I do like the cover art for Gran Torino and The Shawshank Redemption though.

Re: New WB Steelbook Re-releases at Best Buy

So I guess my DVD sized steel of Green Lantern is now worthless. I would be all over some of these. But I have them all already on either dvd or blu and have no desire to upgrade.

Someone already mentioned these will be on sale shortly for $10, that is barely 2x what you paid then.

Re: New WB Steelbook Re-releases at Best Buy

I'm glad I relaxed on the collector's mentality some time ago and this no longer has power over me. What a gimmick...

I'm sure people will be ga-ga'ing and goo-goo'ing over the Lord of the Rings steelbooks.
