It's really ugly in person, don't recommend this steelbook unless you're a big fan of the movie and even then you should probably just get the standard 4K release instead of this.

i cant say about if it looks bad in person since i don't own it but steelbooks do tend to look very different in hand compared to pictures. Always worth looking at an opening vid on youtube if you are unsure.

They used an incredibly low resolution image for the front cover. It looks like the image was printed on paper instead of a glossy steelbook because of how low quality the picture is.

The steelbook fade died with me a few years ago. Just seems like the US never cared about them, and throw together some shitty steelbook to cash in on the whale collectors.

It's because collecting steelbooks sucks. It's not fun when you feel like you can't buy them online because they almost always arrive damaged. It's not fun to feel like you need to examine them like priceless diamonds in the middle of Best Buy to get one without dents or scratches (and sometimes fail anyway). It's not fun to feel like you maybe shouldn't store them next to each other because the process of pulling one out to watch the movie inside might scratch the other steelbooks.

It's not fun when you have the steelbooks for every film in a franchise about space warriors, and the flimsy plastic hinge on one of them breaks. And because this is a very popular film franchise, the steelbook would cost double retail to replace.

I have around 50 steelbooks and I actively avoid buying any more. I would pay a $5 premium to not have a steelbook. They suck.

Sound like the care isn't there.

At times I look at packages of things and you can tell how much care was put into it. Just look at each slice of cheese have a nice plastic wrap. Or each cookie have a wrapping.

I remember CD jewel cases also wrap quite nice.

Anyway, I don't have any "steelbooks".

I have stopped and sold off my collection. I'll collect sometimes like a few Criterion blu-rays on sale. But I'm not paying more than $20 for a 4K and $10 for a blu-ray.

I have OCD and collecting steelbooks sucks. A nick here, a scratch there. You ask yourself: is it worth getting an exchange (and getting something in worse condition) or just keeping my slightly damaged copy? It is a gamble, for sure.
