I'd love to see that as final art. Simple and sweet and matches closely with my original Steel of GB 1. :)

I'm guessing this is the same 4k scan as the already available ones?

I'm not sure. Unlike a BD disc, can you improve on a 4K transfer? (I don't have any experience as I don't have a 4K set up. But I'd expect 4K can't be improved upon?)

But I do know that Ghostbusters 2 now has a commentary track for the first time. So this couldn't have been on the first release (although I know that has nothing to do with PQ)

Hope this comes to the UK. Better than the first steelbook for the films... needs a title on the front though

Where is the french one for €35 available from? There's no thread here for it.....

(although, if its only 4 discs it sounds like it's missing the bonus disc which is the whole point of this)

I'm not a huge fan of GB2, but I'll probably get it anyway for the original.

Looks v. smart in a matte or possibly a zero finish . . . liking the red frame tying the covers together.

Pretty in blancmange pink but zero artwork although the discs do kind of compensate:-

Just lucky it's not a trilogy as 'icon ghost' would either need a third arm or would have to use one of his toes . . . three heads could work with the fingers doing it for 1 & 2 too:-

Disappointed with the finish. If they couldn't make it glossy, they could have at least had some embossing. They are charging a premium price for these after all.

I wonder if this is the European edition or the U.S. edition or if there'll be any difference between the two at all?

Do we know is this the European edition?
