cheaper than the collector's edition, no doubt Zavvi will put this closer to £30

I prefer the collectors edition. Hopefully that drops in price a little bit to match this.

Love the artwork on these! Really nice job @MattFerguson. :notworthy:
Do you not like the US Scream Factory Artwork steelbooks of the John Carpenter Films

I will though still be getting both the UK 3 Disc UK steelbooks and 4 Disc Limited Edition Digipacks releases

Scream Factory steelbooks artwork is better IMO but I will still be getting UK steelbooks as they are different artwork

Steelbook price is £24.99
It's only 3 Discs does not include the CD soundtrack or poster or booklet or artcards
StudioCanal dealer prices are less than Disney when it comes to 4K UHD steelbooks ;)

Digipack Collectors Editions are 4 Discs with poster artcards and booklets
Price by release date for the 4 Disc editions will be around £27.99 - £29.99

These are back catalog titles even though they are a new 4K scan remastered release

I think that the release date for this is an error. It should be 11/26/2018 like the Collector's edition, should it not? Would love to get my hands on it a month early but that's not likely.

Collectors edition release date is November 26th 2018 not 2019

Steelbooks can have different release date to limited edition Digipack amaray editions as they not the exact same contents
Steelbook is 3 Discs
Limited edition Digipack is 4 Discs with Booklet/Poster/Artcards

All release dates are subject to change

A lot of soundtracks are still purchased on CD and also are doing extremely well on Vinyl
There is still a large number of music collectors for soundtrack scores

Some soundtracks sell out faster than Pop/Rock music releases :rofl:

Oops, I meant 2018 :notworthy:. Corrected.

I sure hope it releases in October. Been waiting on a decent release for ages.
