It's an arrow release. RC exclusive slipcase, meaning there'll be a non slip steel variant as well. It doesn't appear to be a 4k release, unless they're doing a 3rd variant of the steel that does include one.. which is an absolute fail in my opinion, because the steel itself looks to be a winner.

Not sure how I feel about that art. I can’t stand the part of the werewolf eye on the spine and the cropped hair on the top of the front. Slip looks rubbish too.

after that turbine art it’s hard to beat

If I could pick just one part that doesn’t work for me on this package, it would be..... the lot.

I was lucky enough to pick that one up on eBay a while back. Assuming the Zavvi one will be the same (fantastic) transfer but I'm not a fan of the new steelbook art at all. Think I'll stick with what I've got.

An absolute waste & an easy pass.
Artwork on the slip is awful (and is internal artwork anyway).
Front artwork isn't great either, should have had David on the front, wolf on the back, Jack on the left of the inside, keep the right as it is.
