I unfortunately do not have an update. I will reach back out to our web team and let them know that we have people looking to order this item online, and see if we can get the item listed.
FYE Customer Support
Do you think there's a chance you'll be able to add more to the GB at some point Andy?FYI, I reached back out to FYE support, as these are still unavailable to be ordered via the site. My plan is still to fulfill the GB copies but it will be a bit of a wait longer.
It’s very possible.Do you think there's a chance you'll be able to add more to the GB at some point Andy?
For some reason I thought I'd already joined (I even "liked" your previous post for the GB lol) along with Sleepy Hollow, but I must've got distracted and then forgot.
I got a couple ordered but not all of them for the GB before they changed it to sold out.@apsmith21
Further confirmation that you can indeed order this (and some other FYE titles apparently) from BestBuy.com.

Thanks for posting this. I immediately ordered the above link u posted and today I just got the Little Shop of Horrors Steelbook thru the Mail from Best Buy. Also, it had the FYE Exclusive sticker on it too.

Yes , Best Buy has most fye Steelbooks for online only, this, Annabelle, corpse bride and nightmare on elm street are available on BBY. Com . But don’t tell anyone I told you about this.
EDIT: I just checked Best Buy's site and it's now showing sold out. Looks like the word is out lol.
Best Buy will let resellers of certain products post on Best Buy.com to sell. I bet that's what happened here, and FYE figured it out and pulled the listing for some reason.Do Best Buy and FYE have some sort of connection? Other than FYE reselling the old Best Buy stock.
They’re not wrong, all the cool kids DO collect SteelBooks. I actually kind of feel for FYE in this sense though. They were on the SteelBook game back in the day, DVDs and then some of the earlier blu-rays like HP7.1 and Inception. But they were too early to the party. Now they’re coming back with a vengeance. But I love where (most) of their releases are priced. Best Buy is definitely the US Home of SteelBooks, but nearly everything they release is $30+. FYE is filling out the lower price points. But then they go thinking people will pay $50 for importing the Zavvi Mondo Aladdin. So they’re still not quite on top of things, but getting there.Someone's convinced FYE that all the cool kids collect steelbooks, so we're seeing quite the push right now, IMO
Yeah, that decision has baffled me.But then they go thinking people will pay $50 for importing the Zavvi Mondo Aladdin. So they’re still not quite on top of things, but getting there.
Right? “I know this didn’t sell out at one of the largest SteelBook retailers in the world, but I think we can make these babies move if we jack the price up”Yeah, that decision has baffled me.
If they treat it as an import, it's OK to resell in the USA, but then again, I'm not sure I would want to be a reseller of Zavvi's leftovers
It's funny to me that Best Buy has a few other FYE titles available to order from their website for less than what FYE is charging.Just to confirm what everyone else said, the couple of ones I sourced from Best Buy.com did actually show up and they do have the FYE sticker.
The Best Buy packing slip is a standard one I get when things ship from a warehouse via a third party seller
