One Steelbook...yes posted a while ago. What about all of the slips, all of the maniacs boxsets and gifts. Maybe they had one Steelbook to make this photo...we need more than this. This is not evidence

Highly doubt that. You seem a little salty they not give you a good enough allocation to scalp or something? :naughty:

For the PREDATOR title, we are still waiting for the studio to finally confirm that we can start sending out the editions. Since communication is very slow or non-existent, which is also confirmed with other 20th Century Studios releases like THE LAST DUEL, they are very slow and unfortunately, this is also starting to show in the studio's reluctance to provide regular material. We dare to criticize this approach because it is retailers like Filmarena and others who have kept physical media sales afloat for a long time. And if some studios are no longer interested in these collaborations, it will be best if retailers get this information fairly and in front of their eyes. No hiding behind excuses and such. Earlier cooperation with the Fox studio was completely different than it is now, and it cannot currently be explained in any other way than the transition to the Disney studio, increased bureaucratic burden, and meaninglessly set criteria that do not correspond to specific market situations and customer requirements. Unfortunately, we cannot do more than this statement. How else to explain the situation when we have approved editions from an earlier time from the FOX studio, then the title goes under the DISNEY studio, which after minor corrections approve the title again, then asks to wait for the sending until it presents the PREY title and launches the Disney + channel and subsequently hardly responds to our communication. If this is an idea of future cooperation, then thank you, but we do not want to continue down this path. There are also studios where cooperation works, and we will focus on them, at least until we start to feel other signals.

As soon as we have any feedback from FOX/DISNEY, we will let you know. Together with the distributor, we are trying to negotiate the possibility of sending out at least separate E5 editions (steelbooks in jcards) in the first wave, but again we encounter communication that is very slow due to the strong bureaucratic apparatus at Disney.

Yep, that’s the Disney I remember working for, total ******* nightmare. I hate to say it but this may well be the longest GB ever or just get **** canned altogether.

@carllenc I for one welcome this honest and open response, thanks Karel for keeping us up to date with where this release is currently at.

whats the worst that could happen if they just shipped it out? they had an agreement with fox and the current highly inconsiderate disney behaviour is ruining their business.. i mean, surely they must be in the right to ship it out..
