    @Punker76 Some may not have seen this movie yet, so it's always good form to use spoiler tags. Thanks.

    Artwork is not what I was expecting for a WEA steelbook
    I'm sure in hand it will still look good but I would have liked the front of the steelbook to be completely different to the wwa steelbook it's very similar to best buy steelbook

    The back artwork looks ok but has already been used on the 3D release Slipbox that was released worldwide
    I will still end up getting this even though I'm a little disappointed with the artwork used

    Hopefully there will be a cool double sided lenticular slip and full slip with artwork not used yet

    Disney must have been very strict on what could bed used as artwork on the steelbook.
    I would like to see some of the artwork blufans tried to get used which I assume got rejected

    Interested to see the slips. At bare minimum it'll be a nice companion to my Nova steel

    It'd be cool if the ridges in Kylo's mask were embossed

    So far Best Buy Steelbook easily wins over this.

    Sorry guys, honestly wouldn't intentionally spoil a movie for anyone. I didn't consider that particular detail to be a spoiler (thought it was common knowledge before the movie release) and figured the statute of limitations on plot points may not be required in this particular thread - I assumed surely everyone's seen this by now and possibly bought more than one edition. Apologies.

    At least the Best Buy has a challenger to the best steelbook released so far for this film . . .
    This new one, with that lovely blue back and framed front image, is a pleasant contrast to what has gone before :thumbs:
    (As we all know framed steelbooks are superior to unframed as the frame gives the steel rigidity and a quality feel lacking in the unframed).

    Zero finish w/ spot gloss or better still a full gloss finish would put this one in the gold medal position.

    The artwork is very disappointing, not what I was hoping for at all. I think it edges the WWA edition but it isn't up to the usual standard we have come to expect of Blufans.

    The steelbook doesn't look great, it all depends on the slips.

    This. its ok but nothing more. So many good possibilities for a mind blowing steel. Sad. If the Slips and Lentis are good then i will jump in.

    See ... best buy's steelbook is surprisingly the winner. Can't believe Blufans didn't make a better steelbook. V dissapointed tbh.

    I dunno, didn't the BB steel have that chrome dustbin on the back who only appeared in the movie for a total of about 5 minutes? Think the rear of the Blufans at least has something a little more iconic.

    At least the front and back were black and kind of complemented each other. This one is very random. Overall disappointed by this Steelbook.

    Was hoping it would use poster of all the characters on the rear to maybe try to match the existing steelbooks. It's. It's not bad, but not amazing either

    I hope we see the slips for this before the OAB Double Lenticular will be live for preorder/GB.
