To me it sounds like they forgot to add that to the spec to the factory and these are already in production. So maybe an excuse on their own error but who knows. It don’t sound right to me tho. I’ve seen thin debossing a few times literally the size of that title just like dune and JL
Yeah it does sound like a strange excuse.
Imagine they deboss part 1-3 after telling us it doesn’t work for part 4 tho…… :LOL:

They should take $5 off the price for no Debossing on the steelbook
Completely agree. All these finishes and extras cost money. Otherwise every single steel would be embossed or debossed. And this SHOULD reflect on their price. Will only be a few $ but still. Says it all really

Looking back at the font they're proposing to use for 1-3, they can't really give that excuse. Much larger than the Resurrections title...

Good point

Everything is still in stock too. Damn this was a bad film and choice, small print run and 2 slips can’t even sell out

I bet they had to release it under some WB contract. Like what happened with war of the planet of the apes. They had a contract with fox to release something by the end of the year in that short time so they went with that. Wouldn’t be surprised if WB said you can only release the trilogy if you release the abomination that is resurrections

No debossing because of the font? So all the other Matrix Steels for part 1-3 will also have no debossing since it’s the same font? Bummer
I hope that's not the case. Like @samdavies just mentioned, the font for Matrix 1-3 is bigger, a little different and in my opinion has a little less "chaos" to it.
Resurrections does have a very complex structure in the font, with some really thin lines. The Matrix 1-3 font should be easier to deboss. At least I hope so lol.

Interesting. Never gave the font a second look since I thought they went with the same one for part 4.
Seeing them side by side, I have to say I like the font of the original much more

Nothing to do with costs folks. Whatever adds value to the product they're willing to do it, but in this case:

Only MATRIX can be debossed but the debossing won't be exactly the same as the graphics, because of the thickness of the letters and the spacing around some of them, where there's no connection in the same letter (some areas around 0.2 mm), so that's why they decided to drop it.

It wasn't an easy decision, but since they can't deboss the whole thing and the only thing they can deboss is MATRIX, and it's not going to be a good one, they had to make that decision, rather than half ass it just for the sake of debossing.

Ah right so it’s the Resurrections part that’s the issue. Fair enough. Still a shame and I don’t think i would of been annoyed if just the matrix was debossed but I get it. Plus if they only debossed the Matrix it makes it out the selling point is the Matrix and not the fourth film. Even though that’s the only selling point of this film lol. Paradox! Shame but I get it
