It will be live to pre order on Monday 24th May on Shout Factory shop

If your order from shout factory it will also include a exclusive litograph

It will also be available from usual other USA retailers Amazon etc but they won't include the litograph

Ahh okay. Hadn’t been in here because it don’t interest me but I feel stupid after what I posted in the GitS thread lol.

I think they’ve butchered his art with the giant weird split up title placement

I read pretty much all of the SteelBook threads whether the movie interests me or not just to see what people's opinions are of the movie, the SteelBook and just their opinions on the fact that it's getting a SteelBook at all.

I thought people would be all over this one because I'm sure I've seen posts in live action Transformers SteelBook threads about wishing they would release this animated movie in a SteelBook. Now in 4K even.

i used to. Too tiring now.
like if it’s a WWA steel being released in 20 countries I won’t go in every thread anymore. just ain’t worth it.

Yeah possibly they will. I think you have to join a GB for shout factory releases outside of the US so a lot probably can’t be bothered or will wait for another listing in another region. I’ve personally not bothered with any shout factory releases. Maybe I would if they came out in the U.K. though

You only need a GB for shout factory if you want the exclusive lithograph or posters they sometimes include

Shout Factory/Scream Factory releases without lithograph/poster can be purchased from multiple usa retailers
Amazon USA - Wow HD etc etc

This release like all previous releases from shout factory will show up on other USA retailers a few weeks after going live on Shout Factory Website

In regards to this film it's likely to get a UK release from Manga Entertainment and be the same steelbook
The 30th Anniversary edition got a UK release
