    For me the play.com Iron Man really started the passionate steelbook game. But this soooo nice and it is still missing in my collection. Maybe some day...:shy:

    Was going to cast my vote for the poll but there's no option for "interested in owning it but can't afford it" :sorry::LOL:
    Congrats @Mickle_89! Such great price for a grail too :thumbs:

    The only thing cool about this now is the history behind it.

    I would categorize it as an ex-grail together with JOHN RAMBO and I AM LEGEND because I don't think it appeals to newer collectors.

    Can you ask these new collectors to drive the price down a bit more then please? I'd love to pick up any one of them for under £100

    the play.com version has also this crap red border and what's more worse, they used an Iron Man 2 pic for the inside artwork

    It's actually not up to the new collectors to drive the price down.

    It's up the old collectors to drive the price down.

    I like this one because ....

    1) The history, sure.
    2) much more vibrant red then the Play one (which I also love tho)
    3) This has thicker gauge metal before they went to a thinner gauge and what you see now today and also for that Play one
    4) Thicker gauge meant for much more thicker/deeper embossing debossing which was very nice.
    5) Less qty hit the market for this SteelBook then any other IM steel and then most all steels today too.

    As for my personal one, I also like it cause I got it signed by Stan Lee. :)

    The only way the price for this will go down is for a retailer to re-release it.

    Collectors who own this steelbook definitely will not want to drive the price down.

    I thought about trying to get that done at Dragon*Con this year, but I didn't have the money to meet him :(

    I was also gonna bring Spider-Man because that's his favorite.

    His price is cheaper depending on where he is at. At the time I went to Albuquerque New Mexico and no way those big city prices could fly. Plus online previous to was pre orders at $10 off. I paid like $40
    Or $50 for each autograph

    That's not bad. I think at D*C it was like $350 for a pic and autograph.

    I think we have reached a steady state now where most collectors who want this SB already have it.

    I don't see this title pop on many people's want lists anymore. There have already been numerous re-releases which are arguably better than the FS version. The only thing the FS version has going for it now is its history.

    There's also many NEW collectors coming who will want this steelbook...for like you say, the historical significance of it.
