Release date: October 5, 2020

Note: Limited to 2000 copies.
Showcasing original Japanese theatrical artwork, this essential collection perfectly blends the exuberant style of the Far East with the iconic art of Hollywood. Each release comes with a replica ‘chirashi’ mini-poster as would have been used to promote the film in Japanese cinemas, alongside the original English Language disc content.

This one it’s a WCL edition limited to 120 :drool: with not many copies leaving mainland China

That's the one! I couldn't remember where from or if it was a slip or steel. I recall you posting it previously and I think the art looks great. Jaws needs a bit of something different with artwork, and that's taking nothing away from the classic design, but designs like this and the Japanese style art I think are needed with so much of the classic design out there.
This slip is a top edition for the collection for sure.

Would love to see somebody's collection with all the various artworks lined up once all in hand.

I'd kill for Polish poster art on my releases.
They are certainly different ... maybe too different for my taste ... not sure I'd want these as front art on future steelbooks:-

For sure it’s a very unique piece in my collection, just love the rawness of the artwork which is a true exclusive piece that holds its own and doesn’t take anything away from the Iconic One Sheet that you see used all the time. Like you say with the release of the 4K disc it’s really opened up a whole lot of new various artworks other than the OG artwork for steelbook’s and slips which is great for the avid Jaws Collector. I will be going for all slips and steelbook’s except for the standalone WWA steelbook as I refuse to buy it again when is tucked away inside all the WWA premiums :LOL: so will make sure to post a collection shot when I have all in hand.

I like them as individual pieces of artwork more than I do as movie posters or promotional material. They are however, the perfect aesthetic for actual Polish movies though.

So, I see people saying that the back is a Polish poster art and the front is just the American poster art. Is this range just going to be Japanese by having some Japanese writing on them?
 
I am not trolling you

I have modified steelbooks many times.

You suggested using the outer plates of the US best buy steelbook with the inner art of this steelbook.

How is that physically possible??

If you change the plates of this Japan art steelbook you are also changing the inner art and therefore back to square one.

You will end up with US outer and US inner artwork and Japanese art spine.

No matter which way you change the plates you will NEVER end up with a custom job with US outer art and inner Japanese art steelbook
duh, magic.

See ... everyone has those moments, ya know those HEAD IN YOUR ASS moments ...

I'm an idiot ... carry along ....

Have you ever had any problems regarding the billing address while using addressPal with HMV?

You can list your Rep of Ireland address for billing but will list country as UK

Only issue that been happening in past 2 months
You will need to wait a few hours between doing different orders on same day

Hmv website has been causing orders to get failed payment notice if you do separate orders to quickly to each other

If you want to do separate orders for Jaws and Duel steelbooks for example

First order Jaws will process no issues
Wait a few hours before you try to do a new order for Duel or any other item you want to order

Or order both same time in 1 order if you want to avoid the failed payment problem.

Hmv security system is causing orders to get failed payment when it sees separate orders done within a few mins of each other
You then have to wait 6-12 hours before you can do a new order
