Ended up loving the film and the design honestly kinda grew on me, so stuck an order in and it arrived today.

Spot-gloss on the characters. Interior and disc art are nice and colourful, so they clash with the exterior and make it appear even duller.

It's an ok steelbook overall though I guess, but I would've obviously preferred something more vibrant.

Oh, also... it uses one of those disc trays where you just stack the discs on top of each other (one on each side), rather than a slot/holder for each individual disc, which is pretty unusual for a 3-disc steel.

Ugh why does the UK keep getting shafted on these. Is the new Frozen release going to be the same? If so this is my last Disney steel, its beyond appalling. I suggest we send disney/zavvi a clear message with our wallets by refusing to buy such poor product.

Ugh pourquoi le Royaume-Uni continue de se faire avoir. Est-ce que la nouvelle version de Frozen sera la même? Si tel est le cas, c’est mon dernier acier Disney, c’est plus que terrible. Je suggère que nous envoyions un message clair à disney / zavvi avec nos portefeuilles en refusant d’acheter un produit aussi médiocre.

Frozen is not a new movie like Toy Story 4. I think it will have the same glossy finish as US, like Toy Story 1 4K. But I agree for Toy Story 4, it looks bad, with no title on the front in addition to...

Steel is usual Disney laziness. Not impressive for the price.
The PQ of the film in 4K is outstanding in my opinion. A very heartwarming story as well.

Hard to say which is better, full gloss of the USA version or the spot gloss of the ROTW edition? Bit like trying to polish a turd :LOL::rofl:
Silly question, and please don't take it personally, but why did you buy this version if (i'm correct in reading between the lines) you don't like the design of the steelbook?

Yet to see this film (and I really want to!) but if my choices are:

1) the uninspiring, dull steelbook released
2) the more colourful box art used for the standard blu-ray/4K editions
3) stream the film so I can at least say I've seen it
4) wait for a better, WEA steelbook that matches the first three films

then i'd have to put them in order of 4, 3, 2 and 1 - No way in hell i'm paying good money for such a disgracefully designed steelbook...

I loved this film, and it’s amazing that this and the 3rd film are probably the best of the series but I just can’t bring myself to owning this design. Maybe on a huge drop.

I never used skip Disney/ Pixar releases but they are just getting worse now. Feels weird not owning this, dumbo and Ralph Breaks the Internet on release

I never actually buy WWA Disney steelbooks these days so this is very much a one off and done solely because I don't see a WEA alternative on the way and I own the Zavvi steelbooks for the previous films

All other Disney releases I go with your option 2 (latest example being the 2019 Lion King I received last week)

Would be absolutely gutted if we didn’t get a steelbook to match the first three. The collector in me says I need a uniformed set, and the fact this one sticks out like a sore thumb means I can’t go ahead and get it...

I don't see all the fuss, I like the steel-book and although the top had plenty of space for the title it goes nicely with the original others, Not to mention the film is awesome.

Much more than with The Americas steelbook - thanks to the particular finish on the UK steel with the shiny figures on bare metal - kind of brings to mind the FAST & FURIOUS 1 - 4 'Pimp My Ride' stickerbook only this time with characters instead of assorted decals:-

It has no title on the front so it instantly don’t go nicely with those original 3.

And a front title don’t bother me but I also own those 3 so I’ll need a similar style for the 4th otherwise it sticks out like a sore thumb just like it does in your picture

Plus the other 3 are embossed and the spines don’t match. Soooooo, Nothing matches lol

The spines don't match up exactly agreed but it still says Toy story 4 so im not fussed. The only gripe i have with this release is the lack of title on the front of the steelbook, Just my opinion but I like it.
