I love this film but there's nothing in this package that justifies it costing £35-£40 more than a regular 4K release.

And why the hell is that quote at the top of the art?

Zavvi have it at SIXTY POUNDS.
Are they F*"king insane!
I hope there's an single Amaray to buy because that is outrageous.

And who the heck has a cassette player in 2024. WTF.

no way to order this edition outside UK while I can easily order many collector bluray or preorder !

don't undersstand why the trick do not works
 
Oh, I just bought the UK release less than a year ago for just £7.99, with a booklet!

I still have a cassette player in the car - it's double-Din combo with a 6CD in-dash changer.

£45 at most. Useless tape cassette, that's cost them nothing to produce these days, just to boost the RRP.
It's a price gouge and the 4k is probably locked behind this addition as well.
Scummy.

I still have a working double cassette recorder deck player connected to my Onkyo 4K AV Amplifier in my cinema room
So I don't mind that the soundtrack included is a cassette
I still have a lot of tapes I purchased back in the 70/80's and some recordings I done from radio broadcasts from the 80's the sound quality still good on some.

I have pre ordered for now

I have the previous blu-ray collector's edition that was released in 2011.

I have double deck too! (And an Onkyo receiver.lol. (European, needs to use a transformer))
I also have lots of rare cassettes, and Audiobooks that (at some point) I need to convert. There were lots of recordings back in the day that got cassette-only releases. (RIOR was a lebel that did this).
