    happy days. :) pleased to get my hands on a copy of this in time for All Hallows, the first and for me undoubtedly best Hellraiser. i actually rather like the simple, stark image approach.
    hope you enjoy, @lenticularis! one of those films that stayed with me long after i first saw it.

    i hadn't realised at first that the image does cross from front to back. the finish is just about right for the image, and i'm loving the colours:
    no scratches on my release (but where the j-card was, marks since removed, and a few bits of crap from my house in the photos!). it's not a perfect clear matt finish (or gloss, obvs.), but then that's to me clearly not what they were going for. dunno if this will have your variations in camera angle you wanted, @Vegano, but here are some alternate shots of the steel:
    J-card for those interested:
    i obviously wasn't paying attention, as i forgot about the poster, so it was a nice surprise. here's the complete package for anyone who wants a few more shots:
    perfection? no, but i'm happy with this. looking forward to watching it again. the Cenobites were always just as interesting to me in the way they viewed their world as the horror bits were, perfectly encapsulated in the tagline: demon to some, angel to others. in we go! EEK!

    Dead elegant.

    Unboxing dug up . . . mute the commentary if desired . . . admittedly, and expectedly, finish appears rather different to the pre-release 'unboxing'
    /


    If you like the artwork the poster is limited to 325 and costs $55 . . . goes without saying the steelbook or soundtrack with the same artwork is a more economically viable option:-

    As for the artist - he seems to have a bit of s thing for turquoise / teal in particular and green in general . . .

    Opened both my copies I ordered from Zavvi. One has a MASSIVE scratch right down the middle of the front and the other is dented on the center of the front. Looks like it was done before it was sent out and not through the post. That's some good quality control there Zavvi.

    Haven't unsealed mine yet but it looks like I have a mark in the exact same place.

    Another disappointing steel, poor artwork and poor finish. Sigh !

    Such a classic deserves so much better

    two damaged copies, damn, that sucks big time. the movie isnt sold out, so you can get a replacement.
    I always buy 2 copies of important movies, because I'm afraid that the steelbook doesnt survive the delivery ...it seems I have to buy more

    I'm the same. If it's something I really want then I always try to get a spare in case of damage. I just lucked out this time.

    I only purchase one copy
    I only purchase 2 or more of a release if it has a different Full Slip or lenti like you get from Manta/Nova/Kimchi etc

    Do you return the second copy if both arrive in perfect condition for a refund as you only need 1 :p

    How does this keep happening more regularly lately? A title that was sold out for weeks is now still available for weeks after release.

    I have no interest in this, but surely there couldn't have been that amount of cancellations....

    You be surprised as to the number of cancellations that happens with lot of releases it's easy to order any release you don't have to pay for upfront

    Lot of customers do pre orders on impulse but then later decide closer to release date they don't want it or have to cancel due to available funds simply been not available and keep only orders that are already sold out and are must have release they don't want to cancel if possible

    To give you an example I have cancelled a lot of pre orders this month and last month
    A few of last month releases I then re ordered after release date but not all of them
    You get lot of releases Sept-Dec and unless you are loaded with cash you can't keep all pre orders
    Some of the orders I canceled are releases I want but have to wait until I can afford to purchase

    If you had to pay upfront there would be less doing pre orders
