    Someone in a german Blu-ray forum apparently talked to BV and it seems this version won't even have an embossed title. Not sure about the credibility, guess we'll find out soon.

    Thank you for the video. Confirmed my early speculation, no embossed title in this version.

    Finally, was waiting for more info about this. No debossed title, so hunt for the original UK continues. But is it just me or finish on this one looks more smooth than streaky UK? But still....debossed title is debossed title :whistle:

    No thanks to rubbish like this. Happy with the 4K UHD Amaray set that I imported from Amazon for around $13.

    Yes, the finish looks better on this one.

    As already noted, same artwork but slightly different treatment to the UK release from September, 2013 . . .
    - UK - de-bossed title . . . matte finish
    - Germany - flat title - spot-glossed reportedly) . . . less streaky matte finish

    I gave up hunting down the original UK and will keep this one. Smooth satin finish wins over ugly streaky matte which makes the artwork looks less quality.

    Yep, at first i was disappointed about the new release not being debossed but after comparing the finish, the new release wins. Streaky matte is just the worst.
