Artwork is perfect . . . thankfully not as busy as + more dramatic than the Amaray artwork:-

Restoration has certainly sharpened up the waxy image of the previous disc and more detail is evident for all to see
Older disc

Restored disc

. . . but, alas, the new disc does not include the documentary and a handful of other Extras . . .
Scream Factory Collector's Edition

I have the Scream Factory Blu-ray
It's a much better Blu-ray than StudioCanal release especially in terms of the extras
Studiocanal Blu-ray is missing the excellent Unleashing The Beast documentary extra

I will be ordering this though for the artwork and the steelbook itself
I will take out the studiocanal Blu-ray and replace it with the scream factory blu-ray

With Scream Factory doing steelbooks now it's possible we might see them do a steelbook at some stage as well

. . . or, best of both worlds, add one of those self-adhesive clear plastic hubs and keep both discs inside the steelbook.

As already mentioned - the SF Collector's Edition may have more Extras but the PQ is better on the SC.
Thanks virkia....you are all full of it...great ideas that is!:D
