Ooof I hate that mockup picture. I hope it doesn't have those weird 9/10th slips they suck.
Agreed. It's not great.
Still, it's better then the 30th Anniversary art. At least that had the Queen represented but overall it was just horrible.

I quite liked the standard blu ray image from a few years back.

Is the same as the US ultimate Collectors Edition?
 
@paulboland

Thanks in advance for your answer,

Amazon are always slow on listing when all three main UK retailers have stock.
I suspect it'll pop up on the site in the next few days.
If I see it, I'll post a link.

OK, good to know.

I'd really appreciate if you could post the link Amazon UK also for the others Cameron's movies (Aliens, True Lies, Abyss).

Thank you so much for your answer ... & future links ;)

Will be waiting for the reviews before I bite. Nothing personal but James Cameron scrubbed all the grain from the blu-ray and unless it looks like the film I saw in the cinema, I"m not biting. I'm holding on to my CAV laserdisc box set.

Getting all these Cameron films now I'm thinking it's because of actors strike and Cameron stormed Disney 'Fox' vaults like police station Terminator scene and said "release my films if you want to live" :naughty:
