    Nice. I don't know whether to get this, or stick with the Sherlock Holmes 2 steelbook I ordered from HMV. Decisions, decisions.

    Since it's Warner this could end up as a G1 steelbook. If you want this one, go for the German one. ;)

    Almost sure this will be G1.

    I am a huge noob when it comes to these things, I literally started collecting yesterday lol. So forgive the idiotic question, but what does G1 mean?

    In fact that's a Blu-ray steelbook, but it came in the wrong size. :( That one is a Best-buy exclusive and Futureshop exclusive.

    I wish I had that one. I am guessing it's sold out now and will cost a fortune to buy on ebay.

    Pass. They could have made it a normal G2 size if they didn't have to put the damn 2 dvd's inside the case as well. UGGGG. I don't want a damn dvd inside my bd case. :angry:

    If its Jumbo, it wont be g1 ... fyi. Plenty of DVD Jumbos on amazon.fr that are G2, so I dont even think they make g1 jumbos .... but not 100% sure.

    It's a Warner Bros. release so it should be region-free

    I do not like this G1 Jumbo at all...am I ever luck to own the UK steelbook. Warner France should be ashamed...this here is nothing special, just for the trash!
