Pretty sure Godzilla is embossed. And plus it says this on the steelbook website otherwise it would just say embossed title (I think)

“A Glossy SteelBook® Release with nice embossing on the front artwork“
Yeah i was gonna say that too. Other releases, particularly manta, they say "title" rather than "artwork" if there's em/debossing. Looks like a solid release. Kept the interior art of the wwa too, which was by far the best bit haha

I would say that the title is part of the artwork and they write:

WEA, Exclusive Steelcase designed by Manta Lab features "Full Glossy" Finish and "Embossed Title".

But let's be extra-positive... In addition to the title, all the fishes under water will be embossed ! :whistle:

Even if it's just the title, it's nice to see some variation from Manta. The reserved, gloss + debossed title treatment fits most titles well enough. But for a sillier film like this, I think it's okay to go a bit wild with the embossing.

Looking forward to the live shots to see what direction they took. :coffee:

Same, there's been some steelbooks where it has worked but most of the time I find it tacky (thinking some of the old Zavvi Disney steelbooks)
I look at embossing like naked girls at a party; the more the merrier.

The only downside to it is when it's a crappy effort and the image is too offset to the embossing, ala The Avengers steel, several of which I found to be woefully incompetent in their achievement of steelbook embossing.
