I have seen few A1 sell for £65-£70. This is definitely £20 higher than KimchiDvD but nowhere near the grail territory. The market will implode next year at this rate.
It is already imploding. Only very few releases will remain their value, but most will decrease. However, what counts is the personal value. But I will be way more careful buying editions on release day...

Same here, and I will start with Manta because they have highest shipping cost to NL from all the retailers and we all know how rapidly ML items decrease in value, I can get it much cheaper from bay few weeks later after release....

The "value" or the maintaining of value does not interest me.
If I like an item, I buy it. I'm not looking for it to hold it's value or to become a "grail"

I expect in time all steelbooks will become worthless. The production of steelbooks isn't going to last forever.
I've compared them to baseball cards in the past. There are now too many companies making the same titles which have already devalued these products. People are already losing interest.

I was going to say more but Blah, Blah, Blah sums it up better I think. :yawn:

This is the right attitude but People are already losing interest which is not a good thing for the collectible community. Remember we use the word Premium and it has a meaning. When these are of no value, we should not be calling it Premium. This used to be so much fun back in the days as it was affordable and only few were released in a year. Looks like someone managed to buy this grail at close to Kimchi price due to posting the link yesterday, so I am glad it helped someone.

Let the War of the Words begin lol.

I really hope that people aren't purchasing any steelbooks only for them to hold value or only hoping that they increase in value years from now. Even the so called "premium" editions. I only call them premium editions to make it easier to distinguish between those items and the steelbooks that are sold by vendors around the world such as Best Buy, Zavvi, Amazon and so on, in a conversation.

I really hope the main reason for these purchases is that people like what they see and they want to have them in their own home. Collecting as a hobby.

As far as the term "grail" goes, well I think that gets tossed around too often.
There will be no more grails. Any "grails" have already been made and already exist, as in they were made long ago. Such as Iron Man or items that were not available to everyone such as that Wolf of Wall Street edition that couldn't be purchased.

If there is to be another grail? Perhaps that GOTG CD steelbook, being the first of its kind is something not to be missed.

But hopefully not.

Indeed to me Premium Editions simply refers to the Fullslip that includes all the bells and whistles. I could care less how much they sell for as I am not reselling anything ever, I tried to get rid of unwanted ones but not very good at that. With the price rising and multiples editions coming out, I am more careful with what I purchase, very little bare steelbooks(only the special ones that will not be part of any premium editions). I collect only the ones that are beautiful to me and as you say that I want to collect for my own personal Pleasure as I find it adds value to the movie experience(so fun to open a Premium Edition and look at all the items and watch the movie) :emb: I have some grails but I won't be reselling them, so are they really worth something in this case ? I don't think so. And what I find since I have been collecting for a while is I do not care one bit anymore about numbers and 1-clicks to have all copies numbered the same to me this isn't important whatsoever. I used to keep all my copies sealed, but with time and the help of some ninjas that made me view things a different ways I open everything now(but I do double dip at times for superb editions but mostly just to have a back up copy). So it is for the love of movies and beautiful Packages :woot:

I think my reply to your post may be pointless but I don't know I just woke up and not thinking straight yet :coffee:

The hype factor is fading is all I can say. Look at the classifieds. Some members are unable to shift their copies even at rock bottom prices and some people are still posting in the I want to thread and not looking around properly.
Sorry to bring up a really old thread (and I might be doing this incorrectly), but I’m looking for copy of this. (I realize that I’m very “late to game” on this particular title). 1) Is anyone interested in selling a copy? 2) Is there a better place to post a question like this? (I can’t seem to post on the “I’m looking for X Steelbook...” thread. I don’t have privileges, I guess?)
