Valid point. Guess we'll have to wait and see what may or may not be down the line.My comment was a reply to Basil asking if people would be pissed if Best Buy used the preferred art.
Why would people be pissed if best Buy did? People could cancel their Zavvi order(s) and then order Best Buy's steelbooks if they were announced before Zavvi's release date.
People in North America will cancel their orders with Zavvi if Best Buy releases these even if the art is the same.
Same here, as I bought the 4K boxset when it came out, so will most likely just stick with that. Like you, it was only the artwork for ANH that prompted me to pre-order it. I may even just keep the pre-order for that one and not bother with the rest. I'll decide nearer release date.See, I can't even use that excuse... I don't have a 4K setup, and even if I did, I recently bought the newly released 4K box set anyway. I was purely buying these for the artwork, since the original posters for Star Wars is where my appreciation for poster art first started. I've placed an order for this along with ANH, but not sure whether I'll keep them now, especially as money is short, so need to be super selective and only buy things I genuinely love.
Oh, they won’t...Zavvi claim they can request and influence art. Even it it is too late for this release, they could do an alternative version as an empty steelbook case. This has been done before for games:
Buy Splinter Cell Blacklist Steelbook Case from Zavvi, the home of pop culture. Take advantage of great prices on Blu-ray, 4K, merchandise, games, clothing and more!www.zavvi.com
The design is very unlikely to be changedThere'll be a lot of cancellations though if the design doesn't change.....
I'll still keep one to frankenstein if they use the same inside art in the US and the spines match, but there's bound to be some number of other combo breakers in the series.Why would people be pissed if best Buy did?

true! besides they do this for the masses not for us collectors, we are a very small part of their business, in the end this will sell............The design is very unlikely to be changed
If release date is summer time the steelbooks most likely already been manufactured.
Scanavo would expect payment for those steelbooks made
The only way Disney would consider doing a new steelbook design is if production was not done yet on the steelbook with Vader design
There will be some cancellations but not as many as some think there will be
This was always going to sell out even with the design as it is
Anyone that purchase physical media releases is a collector with a lot now using streaming insteadAnyone that buys steelbooks is a collector... regular joes buy amarays or just stream content these days

Steelbooks are very popular it's why film studios have done lot's of steelbook re-releases in multiple countries
anyone here an old time steelbook collector like me? From way back in prehistoric times of DVD steelbooks. I remember on eBay there might be 10 or 15 steelbooks up for auction...now 10’s of thousands! It once took me almost a year to hunt down a DVD steelbook of Downfall... and cost me about $100.00...still have that along with the Blu-ray steelbook. Just insane how the popularity has grow...we’re in the golden age of steelbooks.
To be honest I think you got the two best looking of the three. These will be back in stock once Zavvi consolidate their stock ordering system around the release date. Keep an eye open on this thread for annocements of when that will happen. They certainly won't be around for long.so I got orders in for Ep. IV and Ep. VI
Stupidly, I missed the pre-order last week for Ep V. Do these usually go up again at some point before release?
