All DVD's with 'steel book' packaging? (international edition)

Is there a steel book thread? If so please link and I will discard this. If not, can we start one as I am now fascinated by these?

Alls I know is:

"Flash Gordon" (R2, Silver Anniversary)
"Buth Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (R2, 5/22/06 release)

Just to be specific, we are talking 'steel books' and not 'tins'.

Steelbook:
Steelbook consists of a metal exterior and an inner core of plastic and has the same dimensions as a standard DVD style case.

SteelBook can be manufactured to accommodate the exact number of discs required. This year single and double disc versions are available.

It's basically a normal keepcase (width and height), two clips inside for an insert on one side, with disc hub on the other. just totally made of thinnish steel or aluminum. nice snap-like closure.

See: "Dune" EE (R1)



Tin:
A custom case/shell with hinges which will hold a normal keepcase, 2-disc or 1, with or without slipcover, other extras/memorabilia.

See: "King Kong" (1933, R1)

Only one I own is the T2 Extreme from Japan. However, I will soon have 2. Because I plan on picking up The Boondock Saints next week!

"Danny the dog", "Kiss of the dragon" or "The transporter".

I think there are over 100 Steelbooks

Batman Begins, Aviator, Night of The Living Dead (original), Nikita, Spielberg's Duel are a few that come to mind. In Northern Europe (where they are made I think) Steelbooks are nothing special really.

The Amazon.de Steelbook also had 'glow in the dark DVDs' -apparently.

If anyone has a R2 German Steelbook edition of Batman Begins, I would be willing to pay *quite* handsomely for it.
