Play.com is still listing it as a "tin", but when you click on the listing the picture changes to the one I posted.

Got mine last night but had to go to work shortly afterward. When I
got back I took a minute to open it up and I noticed that it said region B but I threw it in anyway and it played without any problems at all. I have a LG-BH200 so I know I
could do the remote trick but there was no need to.

Maybe the LG-BH200 is an all-region player. :wtf:

Can anyone confirm region code for the Flash Gordon UK steel?

Yeah, the LG BH200 is a "region switch capable" player. A remote code allows you to play discs from any region. But if the remote code was not used in this instance, it just means that the disc said (Region B) on the back, as it was released for the UK, but it was not "locked" to Region B, and so it played fine on a Region A player.

Oh I see... thanks for that info dbabe. didn't know there's a so called 'region switch capable' player... I get to learn something new every day. :D

So that means it's not region B locked, that's good news then... thanks! :)

Anyone else add this one to their collection?

This was actually my first Blu-ray steelbook :D ; I pre-ordered it and when it turned up I had to have more lol. I can see why some people might think it looks a bit dull, but personally I think it looks very understated and classy and it is one of my favourites, just a pity there is no interior art, though.
