    Congrats @Mickle_89! I love mine. I feel like the red banner is a translucent lacquer almost that shows the metal beneath, but if you look at the red banner on the play.com version, it looks like the metal is just a printed effect.

    The glossy varnish on the FS looks like it was coated 2x. The FS is really nice no matter how the haters hate the blue banner. :thumbs:

    Congrats mate. The grail days are long gone I am afraid.

    Nowadays GRAIL = HYPE.

    Are they though? I know the market is incredibly saturated right now but I still think the odd few remain and will comfortably hold their status. Nobody's hyped this Steelbook recently yet here we are and nothing's changed in that respect. I personally consider this THE Iron Man Steelbook to own now I have it in-hand along with Play and Blufans. (And that's not counting the ones we as individual collectors regard as our "personal grails" either ;) Grails, grails and more grails I say :p:LOL:)

    Grails normally fetch 400-500+ but these days not so much. :)

    If it came out today, I probably wouldn't be the biggest fan but it's exceeded generic standards. It's basically iconic at this point.

    Congrats @Mickle_89 Awesome price and looks in great condition.

    I love this steel as it is genuinely from a bygone era; nice heavy metal used, Blu-border and crazy gloss. I never had it myself as I couldn't justify the price but a friend of mine did and it great in hand.

    I'm old skool so I love blu borders (original Play 3-disc Star Trek, German version of Halloween).

    Trust me you are not the only one, I still have no idea how this could be a grail. It's ugly as sin but each to their own and all that.
