I don't think anyone can out-emboss the U.S. Akira Collector's Case steelbook. That sucker was embossed to the Nth degree.
i think that's IronPack, as i've never seen steelbook doing the embossed without somewhat raising border...
and Godzilla MetalPack has crazy nice embossed too...

I too am fortunate enough to own that gorgeous Futurepack but I'll be getting that sexy Steel day 1 regardless!!! :woot:
Oh and yeah, the new one does seem to give hints of embossing as well! :thumbs:
The SLIP(s) that Kimchi provides is gonna be killer as well, I'm sure.

I have this collector's case. The embossing is quite something. The motorcycle looks so realistic that in a moment of inebriation I tried to ride it.:wow:
At least that's what my girlfriend said I was trying to do but I think she exaggerates.

They are releasing Akira as a remastered 4K + Blu-Ray combo in Japan and USA next year. Would be a bit lame if KimchiDVD releases this with just an old blu-ray transfer before the remastered 4K disc comes out. I guess retailers expect people to keep buying the same movie a million times.

Thumbs UP !

Screw 4K (sorry 4K aficionados). Just the 2nd bluray, please, to keep the price of this edition down. Asian editions already very expensive.
Thumbs DOWN !

Have to agree here

Either 3D or standard 2D Blu-ray is enough
For you. If the 3D fans want their 3D discs then surely the 4K fans are allowed to want their 4K discs otherwise it’s very ignorant statement to make

Whilst I agree it’s (4k) very expensive from premium retailers it’s not a bad idea with some that are doing one edition to include 4K, another 3D, another both or just 2D to cater for everyone like weet and manta do but then the problem can be that you prefer the art of the edition you don’t want etc. Happened to me a couple of times now. And weet or Blufans can be quite expensive so sometimes you agreeably want the cheaper editon (however you can always sell 4K discs to make that money back - not for everyone but it’s a option)

Mantas aquaman was the same price across all the editons regardless of 3D or 4K included and there’s only $5 difference between the first man 2D and 4K edition. So in some cases it’s not bad

But it’s a bit crappy to say they shouldn’t include one but have to include the other when there are many many 4K fans too. In fact possibly more than 3D fans.

Personally I like both but then I don’t have a 3D tv and can only watch them round a mates so 4K is my preference but again in some cases I’m happy to keep the cost down and get the 2D or 2D & 3D editon providing I favour those slips and extras
