re: DC Animated Universe Films

Yeah, the Target site lists that "deluxe" version, but I want a Steelbook. Will swing by my local store at 8 tomorrow morning. Thanks for the info.

They did. Not that I would've minded Troy Baker doing Killing Joke (video), but this is just right.

Mark Hamill to Voice The Joker for BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE Animated Film.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

That's awesome. Hopefully that means that they'll get Conroy as Batman too. That pairing is too perfect to not work together especially on this project.

Also how is Michael C. Hall as the voice of Batman in the new Justice League: Gods and Monsters? He seems like an interesting choice but I know that Batman in that film is Kirk Langstrom and not Bruce Wayne so I doubt he'll be used regularly.

Benjamin Bratt is great as a much darker Superman. The character in Gods and Monsters really has no connection to Bruce Wayne's Batman, Hall does a fine job with this Kirk Langstrom Batman.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

If anyone gets "Gods and Monsters" today, do me a favor...go to the bonus features and check out the trailer for "Man from UNCLE" - for some reason, mine is HEAVILY pixelated. The rest of my disc seems fine, just this trailer - I wanted to see if I got a bad disc, or if they're ALL like that.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

Stopped in at Target and at first the only steelbook I could see was packaged in with the action figure for 24.99. Did not want to shell out that much for a steelbook. While waiting for someone to ask if there was a solo version of the steelbook, I decided to look behind all of the regular blus and was able to find a couple steelbooks shoved at the back of the rows, so I'm happy to escape Target with one.

My wife scored our steelbook this morning and also reported that they are randomly placed between all the regular versions. Be sure to check through all the stock.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

A steelbook is a regular case with a metal slip cover or the whole case is metal?

All metal. If you were to go to youtube and search "steelbook unboxing" you would see many entries that would allow you to see how they generally look for other titles. There might even be one for Gods and Monsters soon.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

I think they went back to having the same SKU in the system, which would explain why you couldn't buy it online or have a store check their stock. The first store I went to said they only got a couple in, and they went fast. The second store had one left, so I was happy to find one.

I'm at work by the time the stores open, so I'm usually store hopping at lunch to try and find one by then. So far I've been able to get all of the steelbook releases, so it's going to be a sad day when I finally do miss one.

No single steelbooks and I went at opening too. Asked the guy to look in the back but he came up empty, and I think the UPC code is the same for both; they're probably mixed up in the box somewhere. Didn't think to look at the deluxe ones because there's no simple way to tell, so why in the world would they package them in there, but apparently they did. Ridiculous. Guess I'll wait for a sale.

That's exactly what they did. They seem to switch back on forth on that on that process. Works out in our favor when they have some exclusives left and the title goes on a clearance sale.

I suspect that in at least some cases when there are none of these steelbooks (or other exclusives) available at opening, that somebody in the store has suspiciously missed putting them out on the shelves. When there are only two or three allocated per store this can easily be done.

The deluxe edition with the action figure either had a label or had writing on the packaging stating that a steelbook was inside. Don't recall which.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

yeap, and that's how I got my steelbook today. Target Deluxe with Figure. It was the only deluxe edition and there were no standalone steelies at the Target I went to. Btw, for those trying to figure out if your Deluxe has a steelie, it should be numbered on the bottom (XXXXX out of 60,200) and another sticker that says Target exclusive Steelbook inside. Its 24.99 (or cheaper with redcard), but I'll give the figure to my wife, she'll appreciate it

re: DC Animated Universe Films

Damn, they are charging an extra $8 for the small figure? Does it at least come with a bonus disc or content or something?

Nope, just the figure and the steelbook assuming the package is labeled correctly.

There's no steelbook in the $25 Gift set, just the little tiny action figure. At least none of the ones I saw.

And a sticker that says limited edition numbered...lol (I bought it, so excuse me while I convince myself ). But its not as awful a figure as the pictures I've seen suggest. No extra content....I think the idea was that Target Deluxes (well some of them) would have the steelbook and figure, and then there would be just the plain edition. But my guess was that they made steelie standalones for some of the bigger Targets and the regular smaller Targets got what was left over.

Edit: BTW, for what's it is worth the art on the inside of the Steelbook and the back cover are quite good. Doesn't feel sloshed together at all.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

thought i would be aced out when i went at 10 or so, but they had 2 steels and 1 DE and no other that i could see. frankly, if i didn't get one i would have been ok. i am not big into them anymore tttt. if they are easy to get and i particularly like the movie and the art work then i will get it, but not going out of my way anymore...

That trailer is curiously in SD resolution. I am not even sure why it was included on the BD.

Had a spare moment, so I took a few quick shots of the Gods and Monsters exclusive:

That's a nice looking steelbook. I'd probably get it if I were collecting them but I'd prefer to keep them all uniform.

re: DC Animated Universe Films

That is some of the best interior art we've seen from one of the DC Steelbooks. I guess they are all sold out now, which probably saves me some money.
