I could be wrong but I believe this has been designed by PA but isn’t actually a PA release?

ugh PA is killing it... this month has been brutal to my wallet.
couldn't decide between slip A or B but just can't swing both, bought B in the end.
really want that storyboard book though....

Yeah, I'm not sure this is an exclusive, its just a co-colloboration that they're selling on their store.

I went with B, adore this movie & that artwork is stellar!

Their email got it wrong isn't it? It's the other way round.

Stunning looking sets! I already have the UK Special Edition, although I probably would've been tempted to get the 1/4 slip of this had it not already sold out.

Oh no, why couldn't they announce this a little bit earlier? That 1/4 slip would have made a great addition to my collection. For the love of God, please tag me if it becomes available again.

I've asked them a few months back whether they were planning to release a Blu-Ray version of this film after the DVD Digipak. They answered it was in the works, but wouldn't happen anytime soon. So I thought it would be the usual process of a timely announcement, not completely out of the blue like it happened now.
I'm just glad all other editions are still in stock/available for pre-order. Got myself the lovely Digipak and Full Slip B.

Absolutely brilliant movie, very highly recommended! It has a fantastic score as well.

@Noodles What does the UK Special Edition look like? I got the German Collector's Edition with the nice sturdy box (but it only comes with a cheap DVD keep case inside).

Honestly, it's nothing special and is fairly similar to the German one in terms of box design, only ours is flimsy card.

Here's some photos I found on a random blog...

I went for Type B, much prefer the smaller slip and artwork on it. Amazing movie, I'd probably say it's his best.
Hoping this has English subs as on both slips it says it does, but the 1/4 slip and digipack versions don't seem to mention subs at all

The German Collector's Edition is DVD size, isn't it? I always wondered if the Keep Case inside of it could be substituted for the PA DVD Digipak. :hungry: Would it fit?

Yes, it's G1 size.
Do you have the Korean DVD Digipak?
