The standard 3D set coming to the U.S., although not very exciting, at least resembles what you would expect from the movie.

Tried cancelling my Guardians of the Galaxy due to its f'ugly cover, Zavvi's automated system denied it so now I need to contact them. It is claiming that it was ordered as part of a promo of 20% off when bought with Tarzan or Snow White. Erm, NO IT WAS NOT. I ordered it by itself long before either other title was even available.

Zavvi has changed their webpage to display slightly less information in slightly more space.
Previously when viewing their Disney Collection Steelbooks, you could also see the collection number in the description. Now it only shows part of the title, a ... Blu Ray. In their efforts to improve they jacked up the site. Their display is now just as useless as the ebay emails I get for searched items. No longer enough info is displayed to week out the stuff I do not want, I have to click every single one and see it on ebay to weed em out.

Their search engine now, if there are more than one page of results, the next page never loads when you click it.

I'm off to bed right now, otherwise I'd post Jumanji myself. I could have sworn I'd already seen it up in this thread, but it's not listed?

Ultra limited, though I didn't notice any specific number associated with it. So yeah, assume 2K units then. It's a decent price, at about 15 pounds. The design looks good, and embossed.

Nice cover for Jumanji - In for one I guess (as I watch my credit rating drop)

Although, it says Artwork TBC. Meaning, plenty of time to cancel.

They might be referring to the rear and internal art though. I sure hope they don't change the art and design of the cover. The embossing looks pretty perfect with the design. Bet that tiger will be on the case somewhere. Either in portrait on the back, or as part of the inner art.

Training Day
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4435[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: December 01, 2014

Studio: Warner

Region: Listed as B

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Ultra Limited With Embossed Title and Matt Varnish.

Extras: N/A

Technical Info: Previous Releases: Dolby Digital 5.1, Mpeg-2, AR 2.40:1, 25GB Disc

Synopsis: In a powerful departure from his frequent good-guy roles, Denzel Washington captured his second Academy Award playing Alonzo Harris, a twisted but charismatic L.A. undercover narcotics detective who both attracts and repels as he becomes the kind of thug he's supposed to collar. Ethan Hawke plays unseasoned recruit Jake Hoyt, Harris' new partner.

Comments: Warner Release almost certain to be region-free. Likely the same recycled disc without audio or codec upgrade which is sad as they reissued this in May, 2014. Bottom Line: PASS

Have you not seen the movie yet? That SteelBook art is pretty awesome.

The Purge
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4438[/ATTACH]

Studio: Universal

Region: Listed as "0"

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Ultra Limited.

Surviving the Night: the Making of the Purge


Technical Info: Previous Release: MPEG-4 AVC, English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, 50GB Disc, AR 2.40:1

Synopsis: In a future where any and all crimes are allowed for one night each year, a man tries to protect his family from two different murderous gangs as well as a threat from inside his own home.
