The steelbook is worse, since it's WWA, but the booklet is bigger, and there's more cards, and three lentis, for those that love them (I don't), lots of good art everywhere.
I'm just getting it because I bought two previous ones.
 
Update today !

Dear Collectors,



we believe that you are spending pleasant sunny summer days and we would like to inform you about current events.



We've been held up by a few lenticular reprints on the FAC #171 GODZILLA v KONG, but we're now hopefully nearing the finals to complete and ship. We don't know the exact release date yet, but we will update it soon on our e-shop pages, and the release dates of subsequent editions will be updated as well.



As we informed you in earlier reports, the quality of manufactured and delivered products is still not where we expected it to be and longer efforts are needed to obtain what we call quality. Thank you for taking these processes into consideration and continuing to support us in our efforts. We believe that this can be seen in the published editions.



Thank you for regularly sending us videos of your FAC collections and competing for the highest finishes. Don't forget that the collection challenge closes on 8/31/2023, so hurry up.



At the same time, we set the date August 31/2023 as an internal date by which we will wait for an instruction from the Disney studio that we can release the PREDATOR editions. If the studio does not reply, we will propose a solution so that everyone can be satisfied and we are not waiting for a miracle from heaven. We wish, just like you, to close this approved project already and we believe that you will welcome our efforts for an active solution.



Next week we will start pre-orders for the titles EDGE OF TOMORROW, HALLOWEEN KILLS, NO TIME TO DIE, TOY STORY 4, THE BOURNE IDENTITY, and this week we will present these editions to you.



We have prepared low-limited premiums for you to pre-order in September and we will reveal these to you soon.



For now, thank you very much for your favor and support.



We look forward to further cooperation with you.



Sincerely,

The FA team
 
sigh... can't believe we aren't getting this before the sequel comes out next week
Ridiculous, isn't it.
However much 'fun' I make about inadequacy of European workforce in comparison to Chinese and the rest of the world, we gotta realistically admit that by this time even the worst, smallest, and unprofessional, dodgy company would be able to print and produce all the cards and slips. I don't mean this particular release, but dozens of others.
So the issue has gotta be with the money or/and obtaining discs and WWA steelbooks.
As their FACs weren't selling well for a couple of years, maybe they overspend, and are short on cash.

Or they got a zombie epidemic there, and are doing their best...

Update received on this today

Dear collectors,

please allow us to apologize for the long wait in handling this edition. We bring you up-to-date information about the versions of this and the date of shipment.

In the April email, we mentioned for the first time that after longer negotiations between us and the studio, there was no agreement on the current conditions, and therefore we decided to release some editions, including this one without discs. Since this edition will be released without discs, we will refund each customer 400 CZK in credit to the customer's account.

In the event that we manage to secure some discs in the future and there are still some editions left, this edition may be sold with the discs included. Disc and non-disc editions will be distinguished by a tip-on located on the back under the plastic card.

We have this edition ready for shipping, which we will start within the next week.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Best regards,
Jaromir Vacek

well, that something I suppose... better than the expected same price less content
 
That's not too bad actually. 400czk = £13/14 GBP, which is just about enough buy the discs separately here. I can live with that, assuming they apply the same discounts to all other releases.

That’s great but I wonder if those that used the GB on here will be able to get the refund? @CollectorEmtee @carllenc
