LOL . . . yes, short attention spans in this day and age are to be expected :rolleyes:


If you take the time to read my post nowhere do I say that I hate the steelbook. I just feel it's not good enough with back art showing tiny insignificant figures and front art badly framed - an image certainly not the best (IMO) out of the poster choices available but as mentioned previously could still look good on the steelbook front if embossed in its totality.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
. . . and keeping to the pale colour theme a mainly WHITE STEELBOOK for this film using original poster art would have been g-r-r-r-eat (as Tony the Tiger used to say) making for a better glossy presentation.

Anyway, all they've done here is crop the lower quarter and stick it, or something similar, on the lower quarter of the back:-


WHITE STEELBOOK including cool off-centre title and more of the undeniably pretty Jyn Erso making for my favourite cover art (out of the paler design choices):-



I can just hear the design "experts" at Blufans Towers panic-deciding to play it safe (after the kerfuffle regarding their original choice of artwork) going with something very similar to this overused image for their main steelbook artwork :banghead:
II
V
U.S. / Canada Amaray ............... U.K. Amarays ......................German Amaray ........................... France Amaray ....................

Japan Amaray ................................ Italy Amaray

Anyway, this . . .
. . . or this for the inside . . .
Please use spoilers when uploading multiple large images. Thanks!

This is a good steelie again so far from Blufans, :) looking forward to what they do with the rest of the packaging, certainly destroys the WWA easily. I avoided that one, kind of weird how much that goes for now.

As for the "tiny insignificant figures," I think the point is that compared to the Death Star, individual people, whether Rebel or Imperial, ought to seem pathetically insignificant. Hence the plot's dramatic tension.
Same size as on the Zavvi steelbook would be acceptable.
Why would you put Force Awakens characters on the inside of a steelbook for Rogue One?:confused:
Oh, I dunno . . . just liked the picture (LOL)
Nobody at Blufans would be panicking over the design, it's down to what Disney China will allow Blufans to use
Pannicking as in "Let's find something else quickly due to negative feedback on the original artwork choice". Shame it had to be / was only allowed to be these two images which may have worked slightly better on a slipcase.

It's a cool piece of artwork, I'll give you that :thumbs:

Is there any hope we'll see the OT given the BluFans treatment? Maybe even the PT?

I do like the use of the promo art handed out at Star Wars Celebration 2016 for the back. Sometimes good promo art gets left out when it really should be used. And the main advertising poster for the front is great.

Love it, I prefer this over the Zavvi edition, and the other thing is if people didn't like the artwork (like the Blufans TFA) they listen and can change it.
Something Zavvi don't have the power to change.

anyone heard anymore on this yet?

basil :thumbs:
It will be a few months mate until more news

Could be wrong but I reakon June time will be next update. But I could be wrong

They are just doing dory this month. then strange
Next month, then TFA and then this. I think is the order (although in not sure where fantastic beasts fits in)

I'm just going by their current pattern of release after the General WWA release of the films (except the force awakens of course) and their current strategy of showing the steel art quite quickly and then the rest a few months down the line

Note: Doctor Strange will be BE#42. More details soon.

Glossy and embossed finish

Its says it's gonna be embossed, the border will go through her forehead, I think I would prefer it to be debossed with the border only being on the left so the art work will then be level and then they could deboss the title as well.. just my thoughts:)

Or leave it as is and just deboss the title.

debossing the boarder of the title and embossing the title itself would be perfect imo.

There's already been an amended version of the artwork shown where the border doesn't cut through Jyn's head

Holy f*ck that's epic!!!!!!!!!

That red and the bottom white area with the title smaller in the middle works so god damn well IMO


Can't wait to see that on a blufans :drool:
