This is the Drew Struzan art and IMO superior to the pretty basic Bruce Wolfe poster.First steelbook for The Temple of Doom used that poster art, so this one is different, unlike the Raiders one. But since it's turning out to be a set, I'll have to get all...
HDZeta are doing all of these with slips amd booklets?
Forgot Robocop was in 2019, but was generalizing about the industry. Even if it's 2 or 3 years later, many of Arrow's releases are redundant and lazy in design, where they reuse the exact same artwork/materials.Arrow Video 4K UHD releases have been 3 to 4 years after Blu-ray Limited Edition releases not 1 year later
Most have been 3 years later in regards to Arrow Video Blu-ray Limited Edition and 4K UHD Limited Edition
Robocop and American Werewolf in London Blu-ray Limited Editions was in 2019
Those 4K UHD limited edition releases was in 2022 as in 3 years after the Blu-ray limited editions
Donnie Darko was 4 years later
Blu-ray Limited Edition in 2017
4K UHD limited edition in 2021
This is the first time Indiana Jones films have got individual releases as separate 4K UHD steelbooks
Previous 4K UHD release was a 4K UHD Box Set with 4 films
The previous 4K UHD release in 2021 was 4 steelbooks in a Box Set of all 4 Indiana Jones Films not separate steelbook releases in 4K UHD
You had to purchase a Box Set
The previous UK separate individual Blu-ray Indiana Jones steelbooks releases was in 2014 (8 years ago)
USA only had raiders of lost ark individual as a individual Blu-ray steelbook in 2015 a best buy exclusive
The other USA blu-ray steelbook release in 2019 was all 4 films in a single steelbook a Walmart exclusive
A 4K UHD Steelbooks Box Set with 4 films and a separate 4K UHD steelbook that is just 1 film release not the same thing
France previously only had Indiana Jones 4K UHD Box Set with 4 steelbooks in 2021
2012 France Blu-ray Box set with all 4 films was a metal tin with digipack inside not a steelbook as such
This is the first time in France you could get individual separate steelbooks for Indiana Jones films as the previous Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases was Box Sets with all 4 Films
That was a Box Set that included 4 steelbooks not individual steelbooks available to purchase separately that's a huge differenceForgot Robocop was in 2019, but was generalizing about the industry. Even if it's 2 or 3 years later, many of Arrow's releases are redundant and lazy in design, where they reuse the exact same artwork/materials.
The first Indiana Jones 4K steelbook set came out last year, now they are releasing another set of 4K steelbooks with better artwork. Made no mention of previous releases, whether individual or not, and don't really care. You clearly have a lot of free time on your hands, Paul... Don't really care about the other unnecessary info you posted.
Not really, but made no mention of that either way.That was a Box Set that included 4 steelbooks not individual steelbooks releases that's a huge difference
This is the first time in France you can purchase separately a steelbook of Raiders of the Lost Ark or Temple of Doom
It does make a difference in regards to home media releasesNot really, but made no mention of that either way.
It's different artwork It's not the previous 4K UHD steelbooks been sold separately againSure, but since steelbooks are generally for collectors, most people will buy the whole set, whether as part of a box set or an individual basis. Most casual fans who don't want all the movies will be fine with standard movie releases if they don't want the whole set, especially if they are more affordable. But again, made no mention about those details in my original post. My original post was more about feeling ripped off regarding industry practices.
Made no mention of that. I was simply commenting on what various people in this forum stated regarding how they would have not bought the previous 4K steelbook box set because they didn't like those artworks like the artworks being used on the new ones. People in the industry know collectors will sucker their selves into buying multiple versions of the same movie, either because of better artwork or better format, but that is obviously nothing new.It's different artwork It's not the previous 4K UHD steelbooks been sold separately again
For example, I would have not bought the previous Blu-ray limited editions or steelbooks for Robocop or An American Werewolf in London had I known Arrow would eventually release the same product with 4K. And I would have passed on the Indiana Jones 4K steelbook box set had I known about these newer ones coming out a year later. That's all I was getting at.
That's exactly what I meant as well, before Paul went into a defensive lawyer mode, as if we're in court.
I often tend to be 'the devil's advocate', taking the unpopular side, but Arrow knows what they did, everyone knows and understands they were suckered.
You clearly don't understand how licenced releases happen and costs involved
I don't care what the market was like, or if they had a license. They got a license when they asked and paid for it. They thought about it for sure, planned it. Companies like that plan ahead a few years. Everyone knows what they did. And we all do, what we do - buy the next new shiny thing. Plus editions like those steelbook and hard boxset at $50 buy only collectors like us, and we existed '3-4 years ago'.
