The Avengers - 3D Blu Ray metal case.

Future shop has an exclusive, which you can check out here:

http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...bc7166a027en02

Only problem is I'm not sure whether or not they will ship to the US. They are in Canada.

Does anyone have any information yet on a US release of The Avengers in a metal case?

Will Best Buy have a Steelbook exclusive?

Futureshop will not ship to the US.


Best Buy will get the Viva Metal Box on the 28th from what I have heard.

Thank you for the responses.

Did a little more research and came across the same information.

So, it looks like August 28 it is for the Viva metal box at Best Buy. Your $7.50 deposit is good towards the movie when it releases in September.

Being such a massive hit, I think Best Buy will be aggressive on the 3D pricing. Maybe $24.99.

Re: The Avengers - 3D Blu Ray metal case.

Here's the existing, lengthy thread, right here on the front page, about the "Avengers" Blu-ray release, including all the store exclusives.

Might be so (and there's also a dedicated Steelbook thread), but I'm not going to check either every day for new info.

I very much appreciate the OP starting a new thread about this. It looks like I need to get my rear to Best Buy. Anyone find this yet?

So you'll check this thread every day for new info, even though the other thread is where the new info is posted? I don't think you understand how the Internet works.

Picked up my copy during lunch today. It's nice that they give you the option of which version you want too. Was only a couple more after copies after I left.

What location? Seems like a geographical issue prevents other buyers getting theirs today

Instead of getting your rocks off by playing semantics, why don't you try being helpful?

There is no SteelBook, which is made by a specific manufacturer. There is, however, an "Avengers" metal case that's exclusive to Best Buy. Different manufacturer, but to most people it will look like a SteelBook.
