We're excited to announce our upcoming Steelbook project featuring artwork by the very talented illustrator, Karl Fitzgerald. We believe many collectors have seen his artwork online such as "Blade Runner", "Kill Bill" and others. We've always admired his work and style and we are very happy to work with him on our next project.
For our latest project, Karl has created an "American Psycho" Steelbook illustration paying homage to the original book cover. We're truly impressed by how he's captured the essence of the film in his unique way.
If you are interested in seeing more of his works, please check out the websites below:

Pre-order information for our Steelbook will be released soon through our retailers.
Thank you for your support,
Manta Lab

Here's the full post by KOSM for anyone interested...

Dear KOSM members @everyone
Many of you may be wondering where the copies of Batman Begins Manta Lab are. Let me explain what has been happening.
I’ve been a host for Manta Lab since 2021 and have held many successful Group buys, advertised their products and brought in many new followers for them. No issues.
You know however that recently there have been some who have tried to jeopardise my work. Recently someone reported the Manta Lab Wonka release from my website to Warner Bros. Warner Bros said that the release was a fake and that I should immediately remove it from my website. I replied that this is a release from Manta Lab and was supposed to be approved by them.
A few days later I received an email from Manta Lab saying that they were investigated by Warner Bros and had to clarify their release. Shockingly Manta Lab also told them that they had no idea who I was, despite working as a host for them for 3 years and they then told me that I need to remove all Manta Lab Products from their website.
When I questioned this and asked them why other Uk hosts were allowed to list them, such as Mark Tregunno from Debossed.co.uk – they had no answer for me.
Then – in an even more shocking move – they CANCELLED all of our pending Group Buy orders – Batman Begins, Godzilla, Aquaman and Wonka. I spent the next several days emailing them to ask why they are doing this and they refused to answer and even blocked me on Facebook.
I cannot believe this action from Manta Lab after all this time, because their actions affect not only myself but all of you collectors. It’s as if they do not care about all of you who are waiting to receive and purchase their items – simply because their pride has been hurt and they were questioned over matters.
So I am extremely sorry to each and every one of you – but for now – this is the end of our dealings with Manta Lab.
Perhaps it’s for the best in the long run, they have been releasing title that are sub-par at best, - superhero movies and franchises that nobody is interested in anymore. And despite a couple of interesting releases (Leon and American Psycho) they have not really been the same as they once were.
However this does not take away the fact that this is an extremely inconvenient situation and I now have to work out the logistics of all of the refunds etc. I’ve still not received them all.
I will have to contact you all about refunding or adding as credit for future purchases. I am so very sorry to each and every one of you for this situation and I know that many of you are in this group to receive Manta Lab products and you will now have to try and find these items elsewhere. I am sorry to have let you all down in this.
This situation has also caused me great stress and I’ve had to reassess a few things – regarding this group and its purpose.
So I’ve made a decision. This Group-and the UHD Club group will be disbanded and all group buy activities for retailers such as UHD Club Club Hdzeta, Blufans, Filmarena, Cinemuseum , Walmart, Zavvi etc will continue on our other group
All Things Premium - 4K & Blu-ray. PLEASE JOIN THIS GROUP
The Group Subscription fee will be CANCELLED with immediate effect. For those that supported that arrangement – I thank you for your loyalty during the last few months.
ALL GROUP BUYS WILL BE FREE FOR EVERYONE
Information about any future retail release from KOSM(still in the works) will be announced on the official King Of Steel Media Business Page
Once again – I apologise for this extremely surprising turn of events that are out of my hands.
Thank you
KOSM
P.S Please do not text me about all of this - I’m still trying to process it all mentally and also financially. I will need time to deal with each of your pending orders and I am grateful for you in giving me this time.
Why is he throwing others under the bus poor mark
 
Huh? Manta has a great CS?
Not in my experience.
Had an issue a while back(years, was deadpool 2) and when I contacted them they just kept saying the postie marked it as delivered so thats that. Despite there being 3 people in the house, all day, and we didnt even see the postie so no one signed for it. Tried asking where its delivered as it wasnt to me, and I was told ‘not asking as its delivered’. Also pointed out it was not signed for and asked for proof of delivery, same answer.
They did not want to even try to help and wouldnt refund or reship or even tried to help. Just kept saying it was scanned delivered and that was that (to this day am sure it went to a wrong address but i’ll never know).

I wanted the steel, so was keen to find it, but Manta seemed disinterested.

So had to buy it again from elsewhere.
This was before i realised you could do chargebacks under £100.

One and only time i had an issue and they were awful.

I still have the DL now and its gorgeous. So i love the end products they do, just refuse to go direct anymore.

So after that interaction i had, if what KSOM is saying is true, their behaviour doesn’t surprise me as they seem very, well thats it, end of, not changing my mind.
Mean and unreasonable would be better words maybe...
 
Very simple....
That site (KOSM), CM and the other one (MP Psychotics) have ruïned the steelbook collectors community. They started to deal with scammers and shady "retailers" of their awful custom unlicenced shite (that guy from Iran for example). All because they saw dollar signs, easy earned over the back of the REAL collectors :ugh:

Only site left to trust is HDN!

That's true. CM are dealing with 'Lord Collector' or however he calls himself, for those wooden Last Samurai and Dances with Wolves boxes; always-happy-psychotics are dealing with Chinese bootleggers like MLife & MAG, and KOSM is doing his own customs...
But I like those editions, and bought some of them, and have no problems buying more, if they're delivered and quality made. I don't care that stuck up studios don't usually approve alternate art, or release something like that themselves. There's obviously demand, so there's going to be offers, that's the rule of the world.
 
So it's the custom editions that are causing issues with the studios?
Kind of makes more sense, however, wasn't it supposedly a Manta Lab release that threw the cat amongst the pigeons over at KOSM?
It's hard to say, but he hasn't said the customs have anything to do with this. The minus one release brought a lot of negative attention, which has probably led to someone reporting his manta listings, which is what he's said has caused this. Speculation, of course, but it's a likely scenario imo.

Mlife, like WCK and UHDclub are legit. MAG is utter custom shite. I agree some were nice but still it was he start of the retailers smelling money and start releasing abominations :(

'Lord of Collextor' first scammed a lot of people on another site, then when the storm land down others were going to sell his promissed ****. They were all warned (big time) but money led them to deal with him again... and no surprise, a lot of people lost money again.

Hahahaha, err, I don't suppose there's any chance KOSM might patch things up with Manta/Collectong and all the orders will be honoured?
You guys with experience and who've used both him and Manta, what do you think?

Wishful thinking really :LOL: a boys gotta dream.
 
I'd agree. Derailed the thread enough now. This isn't specifically the place to be bitching about kosm. I believe someone opened another thread purposefully for that in the retailer section.
 
Isn’t this still relevant because of the American Psycho orders being cancelled? Just like it’s been mentioned in some other manta threads? Don’t see it derailed that badly.

What else do you guys have to talk about with a 24 year old film? Or the slips and steel that’s passed pre order and yet to see in hand? I’m interested, what have we missed in the American psycho chat for 24 years that’s not already been mentioned?
