Interesting, picked up the original a few months back (not for a crazy price :)), I wonder if the artwork will be different.

hmmm, I picked up the original for a little over £20 a couple of years ago.

MOC are currently announcing their Q1 releases via twitter at the moment, with pack shots.

Edit: it has a second disc of extras including the Moroder version.

I like the other better cuz it's original one-sheet art. (Wish I had it, but still to costly). This new one breaks my one law of steelbook covers- I don't do Headshots. Borrrrrriiinnnngggg. (One exception- Sentinel head on X-MEN: DOFP)...

This is stunning! I've been looking for the original release at a decent price over the last week, but couldn't find it. As a bonus, this comes out the day before my birthday. Now to wait for the inevitable price drop :D!

Very very nice. And it's a very complete edition too with the inclusion of the Moroder version. I like the first horizontal one they released, but this definitely an upgrade in both content and packaging.

The Masters of Cinema Steelbooks are always such a delight. I'm ashamed I don't own more of them.

I quite like the design, and the addition of the Moroder version is welcome.

Unlike the original version, the spine of this one matches the likes of Rumble Fish and Repo Man a lot better. I'm slightly surprised MoC have kept the original number 16 on it, what with it being a re-release.

I like the artwork, the original release had nice art too.

I assume this is the same version (as in the discs), or have they released a different version of the movie since the last steelbook?

The spine number refers to the film, not the edition/ release (just like Criterion).

They appear to be using the same transfer and extras as the last one. The second disc does have a new documentary.
