Matrix trilogy à la TDK (HDzeta) ;)
But just the first would be lovely indeed.
I don't mind Reloaded but not a fan of Revolutions at all. I really liked the Animatrix and would loooooove a steelbook of that too
Been waiting ages personhally for somene to do a nice 4 disc steelbook with the trilogy and the Animatrix all in one nice premium package.
Ideally it would have th Animatrix but I'd settle for just the trilogy at this point.

I have both Kill Bill movies in a single steel thanks to Zavvi and wish more movie series would follow that suit and be a double or triploe pack steelbook.

The Matrix 4 release has been delayed to 2022.

'Godzilla vs. Kong' Shifts to 2021; 'Matrix 4' Moves Nearly a Year to 2022

"Warner Bros. announced a number of high-profile changes to its release calendar on Thursday.

Legendary's sequel Godzilla vs. Kong is giving up its seat at the 2020 Thanksgiving box office feast, and will instead hit the big screen on May 21, 2021.

The shift was among numerous changes announced Thursday by Warner Bros., including that its untitled Matrix 4 is pushing back its release by nearly a year from May 21, 2021 to April 1, 2022. The untitled Matrix tentpole was among many high-profile films that had to shut down production due to the coronavirus."
Really not surprised one bit. thats its been delayed, but by a full year?
Seems excessive but then again the UK wont even have cinemas opening up again until at least next month
(fingers crossed....last cinema trip was 17th March and am jonesing REAL bad...semi-lol)

All that said, cant wait to see what Manta come up with here. Price and artwork depending, I could be swayed into a purchase even if it is just for the first movie.

Right, but once adjusted, will they remain adjusted from then on? That's the question.
This is the response I’ve received earlier to my question what the increase or decrease will be to the U.K. and will they have a new separate option for DHL (I said myself I personally don’t want to use DHL and that I’m happy with post office shipments even if my personal orders are delayed and shipped after once normal shipping is back on track.)

Shipping price may be reduced or increased based on the peak surcharge from the Post Office or DHL. It may apply to your region or not. We don't know at the moment.

For the UK, we don't think there will be any changes at the moment. It may take a very long time to process this. We will update when it's ready. If there's no change, it remains the same.
