Is the collectors edition worth buying or do people think it's overpriced? Not sure whether to bother if the movie isn't that great, but could be good for resale value
No idea.. but leatherette + gold foil? Seems worth a try.
If it looks anything like EverythingBlu's Book of the Dead then I am sure it will be great.

what is the code for ? it must be for another release ? If so even though it works, is it ok to use it ?
Leo10 is a 10% discount code it works on some pre orders but most it won't depends on if Zavvi have disabled on a particular release
It also works on some instock but some it don't work

Of all the films to get this special treatment...it's this one

Seriously how is it the films which are average, under average or even just plain bad get better steelbook treatments then more interesting films

Well, I guess movies that are interetsing for you, might be not so interesting for other people, and vv. ;);)
I personally think people would rather see better treatment for films such as Joker, Toy Story 4, Ad Astra, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Midsommar, Avengers: Endgame, Us to name a few this year alone over this. Even something good like John Wick 3 got some special treatment by Zavvi but they ruined it on awful artwork for the main steelbook and slip cases.

Sure different tastes but it's always the the weaker films that get better treatment or artwork than better quality films of all types and genres. It's just getting tiering to continuously have to outsource for good editions when it would be easier and cheaper to have them done by retailers in your own country.

I’d be surprised if these sell out anytime soon. This isn’t a Marvel release.

Meh, weird isn't it, an average movie that no one really cares about, gets some pretty decent art (see Best Buys artwork to what to expect), and a nice looking collectors edition. But any really popular film gets treated like effluent, i'm talking to you Avengers Endgame steelbook, and yes, I initially was OK with it, but it's looking more and more garbage as the weeks go by, Boy, i'm getting grumpy in my old age.....

I do agree that the crappier films seem to get better treatments and artworks. It’s very odd. But ive not seen this so I can’t comment on how good the film is or not. I think it looks better than the first though.

What really annoys me is the US getting the same steels as U.K. and Europe but the quality is much worse. U.K. dumbo, wreck it Ralph, incredibles 2, end game, Logan etc etc etc have been a right kick in the nuts this side of the pond.
I settled for the U.K. endgame and Logan but had to get the US incredibles (that was actually different art anyway and much better than the U.K. art) but there’s no way I’m buying the U.K. Dumbo and wreck it Ralph 2

Re the crap films getting good SteelBooks and vice versa, it’s down to market economics - the Marvels and Disneys will sell regardless so why bother investing in the steel treatment? And a quality steelbook has shifted many a crap film.

latest live action Disney's i guess, Aladdin, Zavvi got embossed title but i think it's matte finish, US best buy got debossed title but with nice full gloss finish... so just a little heads up..
