Dear collectors,
Let us introduce you to the exclusive Czechoslovak WEA SteelBook THE EQUALIZER 2, which we offer not only to Czechoslovak customers but also to the world.

I'm typing Czechoslovak intentionally because Ivan of BLACK BARONS TEAM was also working on this design. Although having not many visuals we have created a very attractive exterior design of the SteelBook, which will be supported by epic and action designs of full slip covers.

You can look forward to several disc variants because the studio, besides the UHD Blu-ray format, has also prepared a bonus Blu-ray disc.

To prepare our own WEA design, we decided, among other things, because the studio was not planning to release another generic SteelBook than a comic one that fits the UHD + BD generic SteelBook released in September 2018 but does not fit the previous one we had in the FAC Edition No. 6.

The strongest reason was the quality of the film that is close to the first part, and even though Denzel has not yet taken on a role in any other sequel, he has decided right here ;-)

More info coming soon :)

Regards,
HC for Team FA and BB

So they're claiming they put that white WEA together? Yet it has been used as a placeholder by HMV for a while :wacky: This is just odd.

HMV steelbook won't be the artwork shown on the HMV website
It's just a mock up with artwork TBC and don't show back artwork

WWA Europe Steelbook is the comic one

Yes, I realize that. But they had the white one as a placeholder for a while now, yet FA are claiming "we have created a very attractive exterior design of the SteelBook" (from your copy and paste message earlier of their FB page). How did they create the white WEA design exactly? Did they create it and tell HMV to use it as a placeholder so people could start getting used to the art? lol

Steelbook back artwork is not shown on HMV website mockup ;)

Images used for mock ups are just that and don't mean that will be used which is why they put Artwork to be Confirmed on mock up's

A steelbook is WEA if any of artwork is not been used on another steelbook

Paul, I'm not saying it's not a WEA, I'm saying their claim that they designed this is dubious at best.

The back artwork ;)
So it does count to claim they have done some artwork design

Even if HMV had same front (even though actual UK release won't) the artwork on the back means filmarena claim would still stand to be correct


Most artwork though you see on steelbooks exists already be it posters or promotional material so you could say the same with any steelbook release it's not an original design.

Which was a good call but I'm left with the impression that between the FA team and Ivan of BB they created the whole thing, not just the back, and actually added a foot to the HMV front. Or they combined the French amaray arts... either/or.

Ultimately, it's a WEA, and that's what matters. I just think the way they worded it is misleading. FA = Spin doctors?
