Another delivery from the Lab’s and its a stunner oh yeah :joy::drool: and complements my Zeta OC quite nicely. Been awhile since I’ve ordered a Manta Lenti and damn the’ve really raised the bar a notch :cigar: well done Manta Lab :thumbs:

While the Manta artwork is quite nice, along with being embossed with a metallic base + gloss varnish finish. Personally I still favour the Zeta Steelbook with the high gloss flat finish as it brings out the richness, vibrancy and details of the stunning wraparound artwork in butterfly mode.

Manta Slip Lenti’s vs Zeta Special Pack Loose Lenti Character Cards. This is where Manta stretches out it’s legs and struts it stuff as damn even though Lenti’s are hard to capture with a camera you can really tell the difference between the two (above and below). This is kinda relieving in a way as I was concerned about getting the DL as I already had both artworks in the Special Pack of the Zeta OC but was well worth reinvesting in this artwork again as it’s a sight of beauty. To be noted though Zeta seem to have used a higher quality lenti on their Slips as the front of the 4K Lenti and the Lenti’s on the DL (especially the rear) are very comparable to the Manta Lab DL Lenti’s as there is stuff all between the two Premium Retailers. All in all I’m very happy with both purchases and to keep my M-O of Zeta OC + Single Manta DCEU Premiums alive and well, now bring on Shazam! and let’s also see if Zeta can top that very very near perfect Manta MoS steelbook.

That VS comparison :thanks::thanks:

Are the two in the last pic true to life? Is the Manta one a bit darker but more defined maybe?

Agreed! Definitely the best image used for the steelbook. :thumbs:

Cheers love both steelbooks for their qualities as they complement each other plus it was great to do the Lenti comparison as I’ve always wondered how the Zeta Loose Lenti Character Cards stack up against Slip Lenti’s especially against the high quality of the Manta’s. To answer your question yes that picture is about as true to life as I could capture without enforcing to much artificial light into the picture as it’s quite late here in Australia just past midnight so they came up really well. Also Manta’s is darker that’s correct but that’s a good thing as the lenti is able to hold a higher contrast without the colours starting to wash out with the push of brightness in the image. The Manta Lenti has a higher colour volume and saturation while able to hold hue levels accurately for eg. top left hand corner of the Aquaman comparison there is a strong and vibrant hue of green on the Manta but due to the overall increase in brightness of the image of the Zeta this has blown that richness of the green hue out of the image to a pale dull green.

I just go this, absolutely glorious steelbook! I don't need the single lenti slip or extras though so if anyone wants that feel free to let me know
