    Please be aware, some if not many, Best Buy stores have assigned the same sku to the Lenticular version, as they have to the Steelbook version. So if you ordered online based on the sku shown in the initial pictures that surfaced, you may not receive a Steelbook, but a Lenticular version.

    Found some info on an other forum, this one has been confirmd as a Best Buy Exclusive in the USA. Region free.

    Just order both for store pick up. Its Best Buy they will let you return it unopened and they don't charge you CC until you pick the item up. Its literally a no lose situation to keep the order open

    I just talked to a national rep and she asked 3 different supervisors and could not track it down. Two days from release and they can't track it down!? Sounds fishy to me. I should not have canceled my order from Mehdi's GB. Now I'll have to go see if he'll let me back on. :ohno:

    Best Buy is notorious for last minute pricing confusion. The sku on the Steelbook in the OP ends with '212'. The sku in the link ends with 212. When 'Salt' (by Sony) was released it was priced $24.99. The 'Legacy' collection has a list price of $75.99 as it does at Amazon, and on Best Buy's site is priced at $44.95. Please feel free to wait to purchase in store, but it seems the sku confirms it.

    I really hope that they won't carry just 3 or 5 copies:( its good that BB is getting some steels but man.... they gotta put their act together!!! Like having a link to the Steelbook or a link to pre order the steel, this just adds stress to us poor collectors.

    Tell me about it. It's very confusing and I used PayPal to pay for it so even though they refunded me I still have to wait until it clears to have access to those funds again. :angry:

    The problem is the US has not yet been proven to want steelbooks like in CA and the UK etc.. and with every sotre comin out with their own exclusives BB probably hasn't yet determined whether or not it is something to play up. Granted if you are going to offer something like that you would want word to get out but then again for the few collectors that really are stressing over this versus the masses who are likely clueless and think of it a something neat, the mases win

    Hey Ocielz-yes, the 'List' price of the item is the same at BB as it is at Amazon. The 'Retail' price is different.

    Yeah posted that to help folks draw comparisons between these different items. I am sure it's causing confusion at BB, because this one seems to have been made available to them pretty close to release....

    :( would have been great if they announced it some time ago. I already ordered 2 Canadian Steels and I think that is enough.

    Rix, BB often does not include the word 'Steelbook' in their listings. The link we suspect, based on the sku in the pictures in OP, is in the 1st post. I am sure we'll hear reports soon to confirm link 100% once deliveries/pick ups start.

    AGHHHH!! I HATE BB. I was just on the phone with them for over a half an hour. They finally told me they were not getting any 3d versions of the movie in. This is the only BB within a 65 mile radius. WTF. Don't even get me started on the Ghost Rider steel. Idiots

    Rick, it's the biggest BB in the state. Order the 3d version on the website, do the in-store pickup and I can guarantee you are going to get a copy of the steelbook.

    If my little store gets 2-3 on average, they're bound to get that many at that store.
