Everything is double-sided now, so it's 1+1+3 cards.
Something 'detachable' - wonder how it'll stick on...

Yeah, I wondered how a detachable lenticular on the cardboard slipcase would work. Do they mean detaching it won't cause the slipcase any damage but then you can't reapply it. Not reusable.

I expect it'll have a proper mechanism, like it'll be a slot on the side and that yellow square section in the middle will slide out, or similar. It won't be stuck down, so you have to carefully remove it and have it loose. That's too much to expect of joe public not to damage and return their sets lol either that, or it'll actually be a loose lenticular, which should be worded better..

Maybe they finally managed to create magnetic cardboard. :D

I mean, that would be my preference tbh. Obviously not actual magnetic cardboard lol but you could easily have a magnetic layer (like on the back of lenti magnets) sandwiched between 2 walls of card on the front, and for the lenti to be a lenti magnet. I doubt it, or they'd likely say magnetic lenti, but who knows.
 
According to the photo and description, the Ultimate Collector's Edition does not contain . . . any discs.

But I am looking forward to that Double-sided Vintage Bookmark and the Capacity Envelope.
 
I've still got the original steelbook, but this is one of my favourite films. Still, £45 for 4K releases is a bit much even with a slipbox and extras when the regular 4K release will be probably be £10-15 3 months after release.
