4K Avengers and Age of Ultron don't match though, so we're either going to be left with 2 mismatches or a re-release within 1-2 years. Both options are annoying.

Anyway, I'm referring to a brand new collection/set of 4K steelbooks.
After the IRON MAN steel was announced in the same style as the recent CAPTAIN AMERICA steels I expect / hope to see a new 4K collection of standalone steels in similar style for IRON MAN 2 & 3, THOR 1-3 and AVENGERS 1-4.

RE: AVENGERS steelbooks:
What we've had so far (in the UK) . . . for a welcome change a complete set in the CAP. AMERICA/IRON MAN style would be interesting although be prepared for "It all looks the same" grumbles from the Zavvi Mondo Disney moaners:-

No way: play.com steelbook is a piece of art, this one is just a bunch of floating people in the void.
No "void" here and certainly no "floating" . . . the background or "void" as you call it is a tiny space compared to the space filled by the artwork which occupies more than 90% of the steelbook canvas.
You want "void" then check out a thousand and one other steelbooks.

Anyway, this steelbook is just as good as the Play.com steelbook, only different.

If they do infinity war and end game the same as the first 2 avengers films and carry on with the solo films in the style of the 3 caps and the announced iron man then I’ll be happy. I think it would be cool that the 4 avengers films stick out a little With a different design and the solo films get that poster look

Avengers was the first 4K reissue though, my point was that a matching set should have started with film 1, not 3. However, I will admit I don't like those steels and only bought them because they were £2 more than the amarays so I'm glad we didn't get a full set looking like that.

Which reinforces my complaint, we're now anticipating a re-release of something that came out ~6 months ago.
I know these films are going to be released ad nauseam but I'd planned on making this wave the last time I rebuy them.

Not really a fan of those Avengers steels bit I'd be happy with that.

I have to admit, neither was I. But the second I see pics of that finish and bossing I had to order. They are stunning in hand which really surprised me

But yeah 100% get what you mean because I was the same

Your sadly mistaken if you think that. The Play edition smokes this one by a mile. It just doesn't even compare.

He's not exactly mistaken because it's all subjective, he obviously likes both equally, or presumes the new one will be just as good based on his personal liking of the mock up but I agree with you, I don't think this will touch the play.com version.
It will be a nice little collectible, part of a matching set, that will go nicely in a much larger set, but for me I think it will be flawed in it's finish and colour blending, and straight away I prefer the simplicity and almost symmetrical image of the play version.
It's one hell of a steelbook.

TBH I don't think I really took any notice of the finish, just put in Avengers to check that the Coulson scene was definitely uncensored then stuck them in a cupboard :LOL:
