It makes me wonder if this is an actual real (sample?) steelbook or just a photoshop mock up as I can’t seem to see that Zeta Gloss shining through in the photo. I’ve seen some concept steelbooks in the past and just wonder if this is the same case here. I find it hard to believe Zeta have been sitting on a +2K MoQ Print Run of these steelbooks since May without approval artwork for the slips. Also worth noting as of September 17th HDZ have plans to start em/de bossing their WEA steelbooks with the first one being Shazam! so this also makes me question the steelbook above has had its full print run completed as there appears to be no signs of ‘bossin (maybe debossed title hard to tell from straight on angle). Unless something has changed recently I’m pretty confident this is a still a go for Zeta and also it’s placed number 4th in their coming soon tab on their web store.

Yeah pretty sure that's just a render rather than a photo of the real thing (with the added inclusion of my awful photoshopped HDN badge covering up what was there previously :p)

Definitely photoshop. Also, 99% chance of this being gloss and no 'bossing whenever it gets released

Thanks for confirming mate :thumbs: had my suspicions but never looked at it really close till recently. Oh btw

:whistle:

“Starting from Shazam, HDzeta will aim to include embossing/debossing on their steelbooks.
Also, their future DC series WEA Steel will only reflect 4K logo on the spines.”

:whistle:

I really haven't been keeping tabs on this as I'd always go Manta over HDZ if I had the choice, so sorry for missing that. Thanks for making me feel like an idiot!

It’s all good man, sometimes it feels like Premium Retailers like to not give us all the info so we’ve gotta try our best and connect the dots :wacky:

I know there's hype today for the Hdzeta Joker release but that's a long way off - this is the release i'm interested in.

Surprised there hasn't been more info on this one tbh. It's been out quite a while on home video

Hi, does anyone know where the comic version of Shazam! can be purchased? looking for a while and only 1 place had it but they don't deliver to the UK and now outta stock
Pretty sure that the comic version you are referring to is a slip for the steelbook and not the actual steel.

Sorry, I wasn’t actually talking about the comic book but as per the pic the comic style cover. But guess stifflersdad answer that
Yea he's right. The comic cover was a flash in the pan and not easy to obtain unfortunately.

(or fortunately for those who like things to be rare)
