So what's the difference between this and the previous collection? Better transfers? New special features?

Rocky (just the first film) is getting a 4K restoration, if recent 4K Robocop is any indication, it should be excellent.

It's about time. "The Undisputed Collection" was a real disappointment. Hopefully it will be disputed with this new release.

I would guess that this steelbook is the remastered version of Rocky from the Heavyweight collection box set.

The listing at Zavvi claims that the Steelbook is the remastered edition.

Great!

All we need are Rocky II III IV and V to be remastered properly. I suspect that this franchise will be dragged out for a long time before we get all six of the films looking descent.
