As I have said in other posts, i have given up on the 4k steelbooks 99% of the time because of the dire artwork and the Joke?. The standard 4k case gets better artwork

... maybe not on this occasion ...

Yes, everything about this artwork has already been written in the US thread but no harm in repeating some of it here . . . TBH prefer the 'don't' motifs on the FYE exclusive . . . unfortunately these more minimalist motifs seem to be from other posters including this one courtesy Tom Whalen for 'Gallery 1988' ...
...admittedly the tennis racquet/chicken leg motif is doubly appropriate considering we're still with the tennis championships at Wimbledon until Sunday and Mogwai, Stripe and his brothers are all shown devouring fried chicken legs in the films.

Art pretty good on the previous UK GREMLINS steelbook from October 2013 . . . treatment also good with the embossed title although sadly the finish leaves a lot to be desired (pics courtesy eBay):-

I'm actually going to email Zavvi and make it clear what I think of this. Maybe if enough of us email them about the dire steelbooks, they will get the message.
