I have committed myself now to getting all the Titans if cult. I know they are not exactly premium. But I have to admit some of their actual steels are great. Like the Pacific Rim one with the silk screen printing really is gorgeous in the hand. If they just maintained their steelbook quality (looking at you casino royal) and did away with the plastic slips they would be much better thought of I think.

I guess I just have a weird loyalty thing when it comes to certain things, and it was the Mad Max titans that resparked my love of steelbooks. I guess because of that I have a soft spot for them.
Agreed on getting them all

I've been gradually collecting them all just by patiently waiting for low prices on them. Some of the popular titles you have to buy higher but most of the others I have got very cheap.

Zavvi. Where North America shops first for steelbooks that aren't released over here.

Cheapest shipping rates by far. That's why they always sell out first.

£3.99 compared to £12.96 from Amazon UK.

I ordered one of these Titan steels from Amazon some time ago (don't recall the title) and wasn't really impressed with the design. The plastic slip felt like one of those cheap Mill Creek "pullover" slips. I kinda like this one - the steel, not so much. Gonna get it mainly because I don't like the generic look of Universal's standard packaging for their 4K release. This film deserves bett-uh than that.

Ordered from Bezos.co.uk. Have they had a history of overselling these and cancelling?

If only I could buy the steel without all the other sh!t
I like the slip design this time around, which I can't usually say... yes it'll be the same bleugh build, but I won't resent it so much. I think it'd only be a fiver cheaper without the slip/pin/patch anyway, judging by the last zavvi excl thing 4K steel.

But Amazon subtracts tax/vat. It's sometimes cheaper to order to an address outside of UK, even with delivery charges, granted you buy £80+ worth.
