Yay, a US 3D release! I've already got it pre-ordered from Zavvi though, as my confidence in this happening wasn't very high. Looks like there's going to be a ton of different versions of this out.

I know this is my collector OCD talking, but the K2SO head art should be on the Steelbook release, so that it matches all the other Star Wars Steelbooks.

Look closely. The 3D disc is with the Best Buy steelbook.

It's also with the Target set.

Target really has a woody for those make your own cover/character card sets recently. If only they worked as well as we all would like. But the reality is they all just kind of slip around inside the slipcover. Might be into the BB steelbook if they price isn't insane like it was for Doctor Strange. Otherwise probably going with the Target version for the bonus disc (not the packaging).

No deleted scenes? What the fuck? They reshot half of the movie and the trailers are full of shit that didn't make the final cut.

Guess I'll be getting the Target exclusive. Looks like it's similar to their Star Trek Beyond release, with a clear plastic slipcover and interchangeable art cards. Also looks like it comes with a bonus DVD with some exclusive content.

The art on that Best Buy steelbook looks really bland. Probably should have changed the interior and exterior art.

I wonder if they will release some sort of special cut (a la X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut), perhaps to be released when Episode 8 comes out, or if it'll be lost in time. Or, and this is a pipe dream, if they released the original original trilogy on Blu-ray.

In this case I actually find the standard cover art to be my favorite. The Target cover art is a close second I guess.

I guess they are saving the commentary track and deleted scenes for the next release.

Sure. To me, for $5

Honestly though, I'm excited to see that the Target exclusive can only be bought with the 3D version. eBay is going to be flooded with 3D only discs.

Yeah seriously. Whose brilliant idea was that design? Ugh. I like steelbooks, but I've actually not been much of a fan of any of the Star Wars steelbooks so far.

I actually like the regular artwork the best. However, I'll probably end up getting the Target version due to the exclusive content.

I'm betting these will be anywhere from $22.99 to $27.99 release week. The regular edition will probably be between $22-24.

Does anyone remember the Target exclusive TFA? It looked great on the mock-ups but was a flimsy POS in real life.


I'll get the Best Buy Steelbook.

Sure do. Terrible. My local store still has a ton of them left. Not sure they will ever get much for them.

I actually prefer the regular version over any of the exclusives but I'd like the bonus material from Target.

Same here. I prefer the regular artwork and packaging but am interested in the extra content. Oddly, I had the same exact feeling about The Force Awakens.

However, if I arrive at Target on release day and the Target exclusive is as shitty and flimsy as the exclusive for The Force Awakens packaging I might just end up buying the regular version.
