Received my copy in pristine condition from Anime-On-Line this Monday. Unlike Zavvi, they ship items wrapped in bubble wrap. I also own the Best Buy edition, which looks more cool.

I'm wondering if I can put this steel in my Korean premium box set from 2018. I never opened it, so not sure how thick the amaray cases are. It would match perfectly with that edition.

What about the end credits song for the JP track on this release? Is it still "One Minute Warning"? Or did they finally fix it to Chant 3

cant find the first uk steelbook

View attachment 517866

It was also released in the US (without the booklet, I believe). It's pretty cheap on the secondary market over there.

I envy you having the French steelbook. THAT is pretty expensive on the sec. market!

The steelbook could have been so much better. Imagine Motoko Kusanagi would be embossed both on the front and the back, plus a glossy finish. That would have been perfect.
No comment on the full slip, though. Lol

May not be the best art but I'm happy with my purchase, it's a step in the right direction for zavvi. Could be better. Could be worse
Yeah, it just shows how spoiled we got with so much to choose from. :) If I got this particular release ten years ago, I'd probably display it in a glass cabinet. Today, it's just another subpar edition (though personally I quite like it).

I actually quite like the art on this, I'm more concerned over the quality of the slip.

Me too. Slip quality is perfectly fine imo. Nothing outstanding, but it's on par with the best arrow video slips, which is about all I was expecting. This isn't a premium retailer release afterall.
Oh ok, better than I expected if it's on par with what Arrow put out there. Kinda expected it to be the flimsy shite that some release :LOL:
Think I may have to change my mind again and pick this up :D:thumbs:

No, it's not filmsy at all. It's solid and well enough made. Flat matte finish, but it's nice and soft to the touch, with metallic highlights to the images and circuitry in the background.

Was hoping to find a unboxing video because so far everyone’s photos have been pretty sh!t but nothing. Im still undecided on this and unless someone actually posts some photos that show the detail in detail then a video will have to suffice

About the twelfth time he held something up close to the camera, I wondered if he might ever notice that the camera doesn't focus that close that quickly.

Nope.

haha tell me about it.

Okay it don’t look as bad as I thought. But I can’t understand why they didn’t emboss the floating figure either. Weird

It's weirder to me that they didn't emboss the figure on the rear, seeing as they debossed the window behind her :oops:

It's essentially left ger leg and arm in the foreground, and the rest of her sunk into the background with the window.

I'm not going to complain too much though, rare bossing is rear enough as it is and I am really partial to it.
