..even more egregious that the MSR is @59.99, as if $45.00 is dollars and scense, yeah, i'm :cool:
 
I agree with you guys the price is definitely steep especially since they just posted silence of the lambs in a hardbox for £30 but I stuck a PO in anyway, amazing movie and I'm sure arrow will give us an excellent transfer. Shame we're not getting the trilogy in 4k.

You can get this but only Desperado is 4k sadly.

Use RWMAY10 for an extra 10% off.
 
Arrow SteelBook majority have been quality finish even when been matte
Some of their SteelBook used spot gloss.

The only exceptions was the Zavvi Exclusives 5 year anniverary Arrow SteelBooks released in 2014 they was not as good matte finish they was limited to 2000 each and was made in china.
I have every SteelBook released by arrow apart from the USA Re-Animator which was a Fye Exclusive.


This SteeBook is been released in UK/USA/Canada
The only difference with UK release is discs and Jcard having BBFC logos

Rarewaves are terrible with packaging, so it would be a risk.
Also they sent items cheap via 3rd party postage then handed to royal mail in cheap slots and items took 10-14 days delivery.

I've not bought from them too recently though, might be different now.
 
They are still clusterf*cks for only UK deliveries not to mention it took them so ****ing long to grt it what ppl told them literaly every single day.
