    UK sites always play safe when a product is on pre-order and, aside for the confirmation, there are no news about this release.

    Better to pre-order it, it´s free to do so... when the official details are available, and if they´re not to your liking then you can cancel it.

    Better to pre-order something with uncertainty, then to regret it when it´s sold out.

    People are freaking out a bit here. There will be a regular release that isn't a steel book as well; It'll be limited to how ever many they can sell. ;)

    For what it's worth, the blu-ray.com article does mention a standard Blu-Ray release in addition to the limited edition, Zavvi-exclusive steelbook. The steelbook is also limited to 4,000 copies per the zavvi.com link.

    The steelbook looks amazing. There is no way I could settle for a standard release when I know the steelbook is out there. I also have the Wooden Box set for the dvd, still shrink wrapped, so clearly I have a weakness for such gimmicks.

    I knew that, but my posts where made with the assumption the TheShape wanted the limited stuff.

    I pre-ordered one of the SteelBooks earlier. I kind of doubt it'll sell out that fast, but it probably will sell out before the release date in October.

    I cancelled the SteelBook order at Zavvi quite a while ago. It's worthless beyond the packaging... since it won't even include the 2nd Blu-ray.

    Why they didn't just axe the "DVD" and include the 2nd Blu-ray is just perplexing.

    I ordered the 40th Anniversary Edition from Amazon UK. I hope that's the one that has the 2 BDs and all the pertinent extras.

    Yes, that's the full version which includes everything. It's just the SteelBook exclusive from Zavvi that won't even include the 2nd Blu-ray.

    I'm guessing they weren't offered both a Blu-ray stand alone and a DVD stand alone option. Since DVD is still a big seller they had to compromise to include one of each.

    Perhaps, but they're also selling the normal DVD stand alone edition.
