Got the previous Arrow window slipbox and steelbook, both having identical disc content, and pq is good enough for me on those, so i wont be triple dipping. Getting too expensive now to keep up with re-releases, so i am drawing lines!

.......but for those that are interested, i got an Arrow Video newsletter last weekend that stated that this this was 40% sold out (from the Arrow online shop).......of course, not knowing what Arrow Video's numbers are, after allocating a certain amount to other outlets ( Amazon, Zavvi, HMV, etc). This has also been Amazon's number 1 Best Seller in horror since being up for pre order. Still, i dont recall Arrow stating the print run on this release, as they haven't with a couple of other so called "limited editions" either - so they must know the print run, but just not giving out that info to the public for some reason, unless i've missed something of course.

I drew a line at this release a while back, swore i wouldn't triple dip on this. Well, over the weekend i scrubbed that line out......and triple dipped - DAMN IT, ARROW!! Got it for £21 with reward points though, which is some consolation.

This is a bestseller on Amazon ( number 1 in horror) and has been numerous times since it went up for pre order. Might sell out soon, so if you're interested............

Yeah, the steel is nice - the back art to it is "way out there". This release looks great too, though. Packaging looks superb, as you said, and i am really looking forward to getting this now - after swearing i wouldnt triple dip. Ha, I guess Arrow did a number on me...........AGAIN!
