    I am disappointed for the same reason, however, this is way better artwork than WWA.
    I hope they'll release a 1/4 slip. So i dont have to buy the Amaray.

    I missed out on the UK version and will not pay £40 - £50 on ebay. So I guess this is the alternative. Will keep a close eye on this one.

    Would've preferred this IMAX poster for the steelbook front. Similar to the amaray but stylized and cooler looking, imo.

    Who knew there was so much going on inside Vader's head?

    Could make an interesting lenti or FS with less space around Vader

    Too crowded. Artwork shaped like one of those chocolate peanut clusters.

    Front artwork now showing as slightly better positioned but unimaginative and uncreative photoshopped nightmare unable to save this steelbook from epic fail status . . . unless . . .the whole poster image is embossed in line with the frame (as on the black 'n' gold "Ben-Hur" steelbook for example).

    Would have been much more successful (IMO) had the image been totally contained within the framing border in the style of say the original Zavvi "Beauty and the Beast".

    Panoramic back art is poor with too small an image compared to the front and something better should definitely have been chosen for there.

    Hopefully inside art is good.

    Best thing I can say currently is that the soft aqua colours are pleasant enough although I have to qualify that too and question the severe black colour of the three opening edges. A much paler colour there would have gone better with the softer background shades used on the steelbook covers but probably deemed unsuitable from a design POV what with the positioning at the steelbook edge of the much darker poster artwork - artwork which does nothing for me and is certainly NOT the best poster image they could have chosen - and does not look nice the two tone effect of pale spine against the three other dark edges.

    Same!

    The original poster art is perfect for the steelbook

    Thanks for the tags @harry & @steelmybeatingheart :thumbs:

    Now that's the one to own. Fingers crossed it isn't going up for pre order for at least a month, just moved and its cost me a fortune and have had to miss out on Prisoners Steel Archive and LA confidential HD Zeta :( So really don't want to miss out on this one!

    LOL . . . yes, short attention spans in this day and age are to be expected :rolleyes:

    If you take the time to read my post nowhere do I say that I hate the steelbook. I just feel it's not good enough with back art showing tiny insignificant figures and front art badly framed - an image certainly not the best (IMO) out of the poster choices available but as mentioned previously could still look good on the steelbook front if embossed in its totality.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    . . . and keeping to the pale colour theme a mainly WHITE STEELBOOK for this film using original poster art would have been g-r-r-r-eat (as Tony the Tiger used to say) making for a better glossy presentation.

    Anyway, all they've done here is crop the lower quarter and stick it, or something similar, on the lower quarter of the back:-

    [​IMG]

    WHITE STEELBOOK including cool off-centre title and more of the undeniably pretty Jyn Erso making for my favourite cover art (out of the paler design choices):-
    [​IMG]


    I can just hear the design "experts" at Blufans Towers panic-deciding to play it safe (after the kerfuffle regarding their original choice of artwork) going with something very similar to this overused image for their main steelbook artwork :banghead:

    Why would you put Force Awakens characters on the inside of a steelbook for Rogue One?:confused:

    We haven't even seen the whole package yet, you may get some of that art on lenticular or full slip so 'epic fail' is a tad much.

    I agree with you that that Imax poster is by far the best official art for the movie. If the slip uses that image, I'll be thrilled.

    As for the "tiny insignificant figures," I think the point is that compared to the Death Star, individual people, whether Rebel or Imperial, ought to seem pathetically insignificant. Hence the plot's dramatic tension.

    As for Jyn Erso, the feminist in me wants to point out that her character is about something more than being "undeniably pretty."

    Nobody at Blufans would be panicking over the design, it's down to what Disney China will allow Blufans to use
