Indiana Jones 4K steelbook collection
By - atomicwaffleFTW
Can't wait to see them, fortune and glory kid.
I love the first three films, but could not bring myself to buy these because the steelbooks are so lackluster to me. The individual Blu-ray steelbooks featuring the poster art look so much better, I wish they had just reproduced them instead of giving us these bland white steelbooks.
Yeah, this is awful. I'm good with my blu ray steelbook.
I’ve no idea why they went with all this white.
Seriously. The series is pretty dirty/earthy.
Huh, I guess we don’t have to worry about dents on the outer case holding the steelbooks this time around. Since it looks like cardboard. From the normal boxsets from Best Buy. I guess they won’t have that many returns on this one then! Mine arrives tomorrow. Let’s see!
To be fair the corner of mine is slightly squashed. I have the option of binning the cardboard sleeve but would've preferred metal like LOTR.
I agree. I prefer the metal as well
Am i alone in preferring this kind of box? At least they are the same size as the steelbooks so you can keep them on the shelf with the others.
I'm not sure what to do with the big rounded boxes for LOTR and Avengers.
Can’t wait to pick mine up Tuesday. 🤤
I’ve been eyeing this up on the Best Buy site. Haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Looks nice.
Do it! I actually ordered both versions.
Mine arrived today, saving them for a special occasion. I've heard the 4K transfers are excellent.
Also I've heard people complaining about the art, I quite like the minimalist take.
Yeah the art doesn’t bother me. I wish they would just call it Raiders of the lost Ark though.
The first one will always be just Raiders Of The Lost Ark to me. No attempts to retcon the title will ever change that.
What a step down in artwork though.
These are very meh.
I want this so bad, but I can’t justify £130 for it. Especially with a new one coming out, I feel like it would be better to see if they release a complete set of all 5
Ive preordered this from Amazon Canada for 99$+tax *canadian dollars*
That’s insane, makes me sad, zavvi’s price is so high :(
Zavvis one comes with 4k discs and also blurays. But no digital.
Honestly you might want to just get it from Amazon or best buy for like 100$ cheaper and faster delivery if you don't need blu-rays and want digital.
The one that op has by the way is the 4k+digital one.
No need to spend 100 extra just for blurays imo.
Importing it actually sounds like a very good idea, I might have a look at that. I’m not bothered about digital tbh but I’m also not bothered about blu ray so it makes no odds to me, just whatever is cheapest
Unfortunately bestbuy does not ship to the UK. If you figure something out though, please share.
I have friends in the US so I was hoping to send it to them and then have them send it on, but delivery is unavailable and it’s not in stock close to them, but if I figure something out I’ll let you know
[Amazon Canada ](https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B0939S75DB) has it still, they I believe have international shipping
I had a look very excitedly, but they don’t seem to ship to the UK, thank you anwyway
I'm sorry for getting your hopes up. It seems like no movies will ship to UK right now from the CA site yet I can was able to order The Matrix Trilogy 4k off the Amazon UK to Canada the other day.
such lazy steelbook covers
Apparently they used a top steelbook artist for this set.
“Top. Steelbook. Artist.”
I think it talks about it on the Zavvi description.
I was just referencing “Top. Men.” from the end of Raiders lol
These look sick. Mine is coming whenever they get here. I only ordered one and I’m paranoid I should order a backup for damages
It's sold out so hopefully your copy is good.
Up here in Canada, Best Buy and Amazon both have stock but both show different dates. It hasn’t been released yet. Amazon says tomorrow and BB shows the 15th, so I don’t know what’s going on but I’ll place another order to be super careful!
Best Buy is telling me it will arrive tomorrow, but I still don’t have a shipping confirmation…these movies are important to me, so I’m really hoping Best Buy comes through…
Same here. No shipping update.
Knowing Best Buy they will come completely obliterated and they'll offer you 5 dollars as a fix. Hopefully not, but that's how they are.
That’s the experience I had with Zavvi, recently. So far I haven’t had a bad experience with Best Buy. But the way people talk about them on here I figure it’s a matter of time until I do lol
I can't even tell you how much they've screwed me. I've never had a problem with Zavvi.
Well. Fingers crossed. My late uncle loved Indiana Jones. So I’d really like to have these.
I just got my shipping confirmation today, really hoping they arrive on time. I haven't seen these in years and I've been anxious to rewatch them for a while, just wanted to hold off for the inevitable 4K release.
I wish they were sold separately like The Matrix ones. Not interested in “Crystal Skull” at all. Maybe they will be re-released that way to help promote “Indy 5” when it is eventually in theaters.
I would honestly be shocked if that didn’t happen
Eh, buying the other three individually would probably cost the same as the box set anyhow.
Fine with me. I don’t want all four films.
Same, but I only want Raiders.
So you're not really a fan then?
Not really a fan lol. I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in the theater when it came out and it's been one of my all time favorite movies ever since, and i've seen it dozens of times. I saw both Temple of Doom and Last Crusade in the theater as well. I've never liked ToD– hated both of the side characters and the story's boring, though it looks fantastic and the special effects were top notch. LC was ok– Connery and Ford were great together, but it just didn't have the magic the first one had (and the 'love interest' sucked). No need to even mention KotCS. So yeah, my feeling is, why even bother with the other ones, when the first one is one of the greatest films of all time, and the sequels/prequels are, at best, meh?
Mine are arriving today from Zavvi via Hermes. A turn up for the books.
Looks great. I have mine pre-ordered. Question - I’ve read some people online claim that these are not “real” steelbooks. What are they referring to?
There were renders when this announced that made them look like metalpaks. People have been referring back to that ever since.
Ahhh. Thank you. I’ve never heard that term before. I’m glad I got my order in.
Excuse my noobness, but what is a metalpak? Is like the German Masters of the Universe Blu-Ray?
No worries I didn't know what they were until this release was being discussed. It's basically just a different metal casing/spine than steelbooks. This [video](https://youtu.be/gvKYK8LWlLw) does a good job of breaking down the differences
Thankyou! I appreciate the info!
Interesting, thanks. It turns out I own a few metal packs. I don’t have any problem with them. They seem OK to me.
That video needed a funcopop trigger warning!
I can confirm that they are definitely steelbooks.
Ahh as much as I want this, I just can’t do it knowing a 5th movie is on the way. It’s always peeved me when studios release box sets before a new entry into the series is coming out. Just a money grab IMO.
It’s because these 4 are owned by Paramount and they don’t care that Disney is making the 5th. So they released their box set now with their films and Disney will release the 5th one as a standalone steelbook when it’s time.
Oh interesting I didn’t think of it like that!
Do you actually think a 5th one is going to be good?
Good or bad isn’t the concern, it’s about owning a complete set of something. It could be awful (i mean, Crystal Skull is pretty bad) but I would still want it in the set. Same reason why I’d never buy a James Bond set it will always be incomplete. I’d much rather have the individual releases.
I guess i don't see the point in wanting a complete set when they're not all good. I wouldn't even want a copy of Crystal Skull in my house, it's so bad. In fact, i only want Raiders, and i wish i could get a steelbook where it just has 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' on the cover, and none of that 'Indiana Jones and the...' business on it.
Getting mine shipped from Amazon Canada. Praying they are handled with care. (*they won’t be*)
Did your shipping date get pushed as well?
Yep now saying June 15th.
Seems to be a reoccurring theme with releases in Canada lately.
Totally. Looking forward to Cinema 1 being reopened here in Ontario to get some 4K titles I have missed these past few months.
Ya, I saw they had the Arrow releases at a decent price. $50 ish for Tremors and Donnie Darko. They also got Shrek 4k in which Amazon and BestBuy just never ended up getting.
Hopefully there is a restock. I was dumb and didn't preorder.
Missed opportunity. Would it be THAT hard to design a slipbox in the shape of a fridge? It would sell like hotcakes!
I pre-ordered mine last night, unfortunately, delivery wasn't available, for whatever reason, so I have to go pick it up tomorrow, no biggie.
Still waiting for my shipped email. Come on Best Buy Canada!
I ordered on Amazon Canada and they pushed my expected delivery date to June 15th from the previous June 8th.
Where is this picture taken. Kinda looks like a Costco aisle
Best Buy warehouse. OP works there and frequently posts "in hand" photos of new releases.
I’ve never seen an Indiana Jones film so I think I may need to hit Best Buy up soon
This set doesn't include the standard blu rays? Are there any special features missing as a result?
Why would you buy this with the 5th coming out soon?
Because the 5th one will be Disney’s. Paramount doesn’t care that they’re releasing a 5th film so they released their box set with the films they own now. Disney will likely release a stand-alone one for their film.
Ah I see.
Glad to see they’re actual steelbooks. The picture on the website looks like those awful metalbooks with that ugly hinge.
nice, but will wait for the 5 film set once Indiana Jones 5 completes it's theater run in the near future.
Highly likely that won’t happen. The reason we are getting this is because 1-4 are owned by Paramount and they don’t care that Disney is making a 5th. So they decided to release their box set now. We should be getting a steelbook for the 5th one from Disney though.
Wow, thank you for this info, had no idea. i guess i'll be getting a set, but i will be the digipack edition.
