I grabbed Frankenweenie 3D + the Zbox (Undead). 5 pounds off, and even though I'm trying to save money (so I keep telling myself), I'll give it a shot >_>

I grabbed FrankenWeenie as well. Not a huge fan of Burton but just like SOD says, trying to save money but just can't stop on certain titles/genres.

^^^ and in the FUCK YOU ZAVVI department, the above item is SOLD OUT, but if you want to pay nearly double, the version that includes the Zbox (shirt) is available HERE.

I am not that desperate for this Steelbook so I will continue to wait for the other version, if ever, to open up for sale.

So I sent Zavvi an email thanking them for saving me money by making sure that Avengers Assemble was SOLD OUT in the standalone package but was readily available as a Z-Box combo and that I had no intention of buying the up-priced combo. I doubt they ever even read the message, I got the standard apology for the title being out of stock and their buyers looking for more to become available. Again - Fuck You Zavvi.
