Steelbooks & Limited Editions on DVD or Blu-ray

Does anyone collect these or look out for a special release of a movie or TV series? I have a few Blu-ray Steelbooks mostly bought before the kids arrived and when I lived at home. Still have a soft spot for them when I see them and have a few on display in the study/office area upstairs.

The Walking Dead ones with artwork on the front by Jock are great, I have series 1-8 still unopened and the James Bond 50th anniversary boxset, I like. 

Some are going for silly prices now but just wondered if there is interest in these amongst VT friends?

In my late teen early twenties time I loved steelbooks and LE’s of anything. Films, music, games etc…

Now? You’re lucky if I even buy the basic blu ray. I’ve started buying normal dvds again instead and they are just fine. I’ve realised what a rip off the hd market is. HMV have started selling deluxe limited editions of films for something like £30. The basic film on base dvd is a fiver. Less on eBay or in charity shops. It’s madness.

Games too, standard editions all the way apart from goty editions where it has all of the dlc included. I still remember queueing at the midnight launch on new street to get the special edition of halo 3 with the master chief helmet. Daft.

It's a great point, it's difficult to add to this as it cover so many of the pro and con arguments as well as the financial implications of collecting limited edition film media. Of course you do give a full and frank take on an extensive collection, but at the same time a critical theory on the over commercialisation of film and it's perceived art. Bravo. Post of the year.

I don't see what they add to be honest for the extra cost
