I was lucky enough to get my only signed Steelbook of the Flash Gordon Mondo through the crowdfunding site when that was available and now ordered this beauty today. Totally love this movie and think this is a great package.

Will this decrease in price as I’ve been offered one for £38 on the bay.
Possible but not at the moment all UK retailers have same price £49.99

Who is selling at price £38.99 on ebay as that is lower than retail price

You sure it the 5 Disc UK edition at £38.99 on ebay and not one of the Arrow Video USA release editions or the UK Standard Blu-ray Edition
There are 4 different USA arrow video editions
Arrow Video 4K Limited edition is not the same as UK 4K 5 Disc Limited Edition

There is also a UK standard 2 disc Blu-ray edition but dot include 4K UHD Disc or the Booklets etc and CD Soundtrack etc

Mine arrived yesterday From HMV and it’s a beautiful set, a kind of metallic old school slip cover kind of colour design, (I know hard to explain, sort of like the slip for the Clash Of The Titans remake) on the actors and title, box is the same size as the Hellraiser set (not the scarlet box) haven’t opened it yet. As soon as I do I’ll post some pics.

Just unboxed mine. Among my favorite releases of the year. Its a fantastic package, the rigid box makes it feel even more premium, feels like a big blowout Arrow version.
Pity StudioCanal didn't do this with the john Carpenter releases but hopefully they do more releases like this going forward.
