I don't know how collectors keep up, where do you guys find the money for all these expensive releases!

Now I'm going way back but it used to be that I could get a couple of steelbooks (and potentially premium releases) for what it cost me to get a limited edition print / poster (24x36)

And that has flipped as of today, where it's more affordable (lol) for me to collect prints than it is a lot of these steelbooks.

Would have never thought that - starting maybe 3-4 years ago.
Those of us that remembered to send Gran flowers on mother's day already got our boxes

Maybe something to think about for next time.

I mean my man's are dead but even if they weren't I'm pretty confident they'd rather watch Batman than get a bunch of flowers ;)

I pretty much stopped collecting premium steels - there's almost ZERO creativity these days. I did like the designs for this edition of Leon, and I was annoyed at how fast all the versions sold out, but ultimately I guess I should be thankful I missed out. This would've been a total splurge and one I probably would've regretted. I sense the premium labels are going through a lull right now because the designs suck and, frankly, so do the title selections. BTW, whatever happened to Plain Archive, kimchiDVD and Blufans? I know they're still around but, man, it's like cricket central.

I got this impression too. One of the early planning activities is to work out where holidays are going to kill your timeline, right?
Delays are a reoccurring theme with them, which is fine, whatever... I don't mind them. But you'd think they would've learned to properly plan ahead by now or just not give specific dates until they're absolutely certain.
Aye, I was expecting this, given Reloaded only landed last week. Manta were too ambitious with their Q1 preorders lol
