Nice! I read somewhere that USA will be getting their own 40th release too with different art so could be seeing a lot of Rambo editions this year

USA
considering what all has been done before, I think its a worthy addition to the catalog of Rambo steels.

Plus the artist is awesome, and cool. I like the blades of grass matching the knife.

How many different First Blood steelbooks are there by now? More than The Thing?

Yet none with original Struzan's art (even though one steel was close to it, but they changed the background completely). Ultimately I had to buy the old DVD to get the original art, then added the 4K disc inside.

Just saw the French versions went up on FNAC and Amazon FR, looks like you get something extra with it looking at the photos. Maybe a plastic slip and a book or something? Nothing mentioned that I can see but the photo doesn't look like just a steelbook.

Yeah, saw that earlier. Looks like a pet slip with a booklet behind. Would help explain the 35euro price. Looks like some of the foreground steel design is actually on the slip and not the steel itself, could work quite well if so. Peaked my interest.
