This particular thread is to showcase new and recent additions to your collection and showcasing your entire collection.

In order to allow for smooth scrolling and loading, on multiple types of devices, we're asking our community to work with us to do the following:
1. Please try and resize your pictures prior to posting them as it helps the loading times for you and your fellow collectors.
2. You might want to consider posting your pics in the dedicated media section found HERE where you will be able to take advantage of the amount of filters, resizing, and other features if you use that interface.
3. Please use spoiler tags when posting more than one picture of the same steelbook.
4. If you receive more than one steelbook, please take a group shot, not a picture from every single steel.
5. If you receive more than a single copy of one steel, post pictures of a SINGLE copy please. If they are for a group buy, then those pictures should be posted in the group buy thread and NOT in this thread.
6. If you wish to show multiple steelbooks from different angles, please use spoiler tags.

I'd like to thank @Bar81 for his review of Ninja Scroll and I got what could have been last remaining stock. I did think it would never show as there was a good few weeks of nothing arriving until today.

It's absolutely stunning and for a 2012 release, you just cannot expect any better. Puts modern steels to shame. Magnificent.

One of my favorite films, why did I never ever get this before and risk never having it in my collection. Dodged a bullet I did, yes :thumbs:

So, now we head back to the present - another steelbook exclusive to Best Buy in the US, what must be the 37th or so steelbook of the the classic Snyder adaptation of Miller's 300:

Back of J card - yes, there's some murder in this one:

300_02_reduced.jpg

Gorgeous art - in fact a part of what is now becoming more of a recent trend - wraparound art, a trend that I'm a big fan of. I know some people want this to be glossy but I think that would be a mistake - the matte finish perfectly suits the color scheme on this one, particularly the dark gold-ish background which is very difficult to accurately reflect in photos:

300_03_reduced.jpg

The back features even more gorgeous art showing the full breadth of the Spartan's flowing cloak:

300_04_reduced.jpg

The spine being key here in linking the wraparound art - a little busy but the art demands it:

300_05_reduced.jpg

Just killing it on the inside art - classic scene and of course, excessive lens flare is a must:

300_06_reduced.jpg

For the total package (the gold background is consistent across the whole - it's hard to photograph but the front right of steelbook in the pic below is the most accurate color wise to the real thing):

THIS....IS....SPARTAAAAAAA!

A stunning release all around (the movie looks incredible in 4K as well) and the creme de la creme of 300 steelbooks. Loving the wraparound steelbooks that are closing out 2020 - first the amazing GiTS, then Halloween (didn't get that one as I don't like horror movies but it looks amazing) and now 300. Can't wait for Total Recall to end 2020 with a bang in December.
