Great news if it is, and I'll be able to cancel my Amazon.fr pre-order....
I enjoyed the movie, hopefully a nice artwork...
Watched it last week, and enjoyed it as well. If this has proper finish i'll order it
Awesome. Will definitely be dropping the Zavvi steel in favour of this.
Upgraded my pre-order to this edition (steelbook or not). Future proofing my collection but not sure when I'll be upgrading to 4K but either way, it will look stunning on whatever set up I have.
I have pre ordered for now
I will keep the pre order when it's 100% confirmed as a steelbook and only if an extras Bonus Disc is included
4K UHD I wont be using as I don't have a 4K TV but if it includes a bonus extras disc I will keep my order even if not a steelbook
Is @paulboland back off on holiday as the Mask (avatar) has returned?
Back on topic, I too have put a pre-order in for this and wait confirmation if it's a steelbook or not.
Certainly an interesting 3D poster for this:-

I hope this helps. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
However, they haven't confirmed what it is about this particular release that makes it an exclusive to amazon.co.uk.
I wonder whether it is just the fact that it contains both the 4K and 3D versions in the same package. Anyway, I have now asked for further clarification to confirm (or otherwise) my suspicions. Will provide further updates as and when I receive any from Amazon.
Moved to 4K section.
It's not listed currently as a steelbook, but I've just had the following response from Amazon to my enquiry in that regard:

I have suggested that they update the listing to make it clear that it is a steelbaook if that really is the case!
Oh, and I've also received the following update regarding the release date:
Release date: Monday, 27 November 2017
Thanks @Doctor I'm holding onto my pre-order then until I hear it's not a steelbook
Amazon have today changed the title of this to confirm it is indeed a steelbook.
I saw on another forum a couple of people having got confirmation from Amazon too.
Ordered earlier today when I saw it had changed. Couldn't find this thread on here though as it had moved out of the steelbook section.
Assume it'll move back now?
Moved to the SteelBook forum.
This has potential to be quite special.
I guess the guys that want every format included are getting their way. I'm paying an extra £5 - 6 for a 4k disc I'll never use .
Hoping for a price drop to around £25 on this but pre-ordered
