Wow thank you. I really hope this will be debossed/embossed. I really like the Media Markt steelbooks.

if there is a group buy for this I'd be interested! I assume it's gonna be region free correct?

...and I just bought the UK one. If I had just waited one and a half more weeks I would have heard of this one and not have gotten it. :rolleyes: Well, at least I didn't pay much for it. I wonder if this will be region free because as far as I was aware of it all the others were region B locked. This one looks really good too. :oohyeah:

+1 It is not just new scenes but the editing has also changed the flow and pace of the movie. I watched this Dir's Cut on New Year's Day and it had a different feel to it. Usually for me, the third or fourth viewing becomes a drag very quickly. This past viewing is my fifth this year and it felt fresh. :happy grin:

I don't own this movie, but I'm glad to add an embossed steelbook to the collection.

For the price, I'm not going to complain about the inside artwork. It would have been nice to have inside artwork for more money, but it's okay since it's pretty cheap price.

Love the silver banner and black...

The company who released this Blu-ray should shame himself. The picture quality is SD quality. :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: I made a comparison between the French disc and this Extended cut. The difference is huge.

Can some fellow German member here, contact the studio?

I'm so dissapointed.

Here is another experience:

So both versions have the Steelbook uncut and DC!
Will keep both as each is brilliant in its own way of her story and action!
Sin both sound great and no problems with the DC and I have noticed!
Image is compared to the uncut version like putting a DVD upscaled and I had the comparative degree and have a Samsung LED 117 and a Samsung HDTV where you can see the difference immediately!
The pig picture dark, the only positive you can splurge mim respective black level of TV when you feel like;-)
the focus is no comparison so real as a DVD!
I get out took and looked after if the seller would have been wrong, and me a DVD to the HDTV box would have done (is at Libro so they take out the media in order to prevent theft), but NO, it is a BluRay Figure 1 remainder 4 makes a total of 3 points!
Have fun!

I have read also in a review of the directors disc that the audio isnt the same either, as especially in the opening seen there is alot of mic pop and crackle when speaking so i put my disc in and they are right. It was really bad on my system, were it isnt anywere to be heard on my theatrical disc.

Also i found the bit rate lower on the DC disc also, and the review was on the US version but the german disc appears to be the same.

Yeah, each country has its own subtitles only...it's a shame. I wanted to know what Arni and Sly said in the church, so I also had to grab the UK version. French steel has only French subs, the Italian only their subtitle language and the Germans only German...whatsoever...THE EXPENDABLES is worth collecting different versions, so will be the second part.

How could you have missed this. EEK! :hilarious: It's a very nice steelbook but the audio transfer on it is not that good imo. Oh also, it's region 'B' locked too. It has a debossed border and all the guns, the skull and the title are embossed. It's really a beautiful steelbook to be honest.
