Unboxing and review not my video


Note some contributors to the production of the release and some reviewers got sent early copies of the box sets so that is why some have already got delivery of the box set


People who are mistaking a "poster" with the cover of the dawn of the dead board game don't deserve free copies...:naughty:

I got to disagree in part to some here as I think it looks great. However not for the price. For that price I would of expected a steelbook and more fluff.

Will wait to see if this hits the £50 mark and then I’ll consider biting.

I am not a steelbook collector even if i got some.
I love beautiful digipacks. What a missed opportunity... still interrested in this edition because of the books and extras. But what a major disapointment when it comes to the digipacks. Worst being : looks like sh... and we got twice the same :banghead:

Well I'm loving this edition (plus bonus art cards from ordering direct :drool:). Yeah it'd be nice for this to get a steel at some point to match the other 2 original films, but I'll take any edition this good - the book especially is a real treasure of info and pics.

One of these days someone will release this as a steelbook. Would love to see a Manta. Would love to see a Cine Museum as well. Seeing a FAC offering would rip the flish off a wayward straggler as well.

This movie is fairly complicated wrt licensing rights, thus I doubt we will see this as a premium release soon. It is almost a miracle that Second Sight could pull of this release. However, I can see Second Sight releasing their own steelbook version next year or so.

Mine just arrived and this was all the packaging Amazon bothered with. Shockingly it isn't damaged at all.

Bad..........just........bad! Btw, have Amazon sold out of the UHD of this now? The blu ray is showing up as in stock on Jan 08, 2021, but nothing for the UHD.

How did you amazon customers get your order so quick?
I'm a Prime customer and placed my order on 29th May, original delivery date of 31st October. My order shows delivery date of Saturday 21st November and I've not even had a dispatched email.
I think I need to give there customer service line a ring.

I had this once years ago with the creed France set with gloves and shorts and steelbook inside, the box it comes in is nice but way too big to display but instead of not putting it in a shipping box like yours they stufk a label on it and sent other side of worl.
I was more interested in the items inside which was fine but annoying all the same that it was sent like that.
But no excuse for something that small, that must be a new employee who has no clue surely.

Did you complain to Amazon? You should at least get a hefty partial refund. I had this happen in the US. I ordered an item and they just slapped a label on it and sent it without shipping box (the product box was beat up but nothing inside was damaged). I didn't even call but took a picture and sent an e-mail; they ended up refunding the full price so I got it for free.
