Possibly getting you mixed up with someone else but I'm thinking it may have been you grumbling about the fold lines on the recent Marvel original posters steelbook collection ...
No that wasn't me. Actually what I meant was that the only art I would accept for a steelbook is this poster even if they had to include the fold lines. I would prefer that it didn't have the fold lines but if they had to be there so be it. :)

I watched this about a month ago for the first time since I saw it in the theater in 1989. 30 years between first and second viewings.
It was actually a burned copy of the 2 disc DVD from whatever year that was. Oddly I found the quality of that perfectly fine for re-watching this. So I 'm glad that I don't feel the need to buy this awful looking steelbook to get the movie.

Like many, I probably first saw Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice (I saw Lucas later). She looked really good in Heathers and so I just hate that image on the steelbook. I finally re-watched Reality Bites a couple of weeks ago, again after only seeing it once in the theater back in the day. She looked great in that as well. Anyway...:LOL:

The colouration of the steel and especially the back artwork is kind of unique. It has a nice dirty touch.

I can’t believe so many people are getting it early and posting pictures but there’s literally no one saying whether it’s a new transfer or the terrible old one. :(

I hate shipping from Best Buy’s website. Thankfully my store shows they have stock so I can exchange the damaged steel I got in the shitty cardboard mailer.

Swapped out my dented copy for a good one. Disc says “Program content: 2002. ... Blu-ray Disc Packaging: 2019”. So I’m assuming it’s not a new transfer.

No it's not
Arrow 4K scan remaster Transfer is available only with the UK Arrow Video release

USA Steelbook Disc 1 is same as Image Entertainment previous anchor bay transfer 2008/2011
Blu-ray is a new encode but is using previous transfer from 2001

Disc 2 extras has most that was on Arrow release.

If you want new 4K Scan remaster of the film you need to purchase Arrow Video Blu-ray
