Seems that Best Buy is not offering individual Steelbooks for Episodes 1 through 8 for the 4K releases.
(at least, there's nothing on their site about them!)

Has anyone heard or seen anything about this?
I don't want the big "box set" as I'd much rather get the individual Steelboxes (or one big Steelbook "collection").

So disappointed...

They're getting an exclusive box set of the entire saga.

I know this isn't what people will want to hear, but I suspect that they don't want to compete with themselves and wish to direct customers to buying the big set as versus also having exclusives for the individual titles.

That being said, didn't they get a 4K steelbook for The Last Jedi when it was originally released in 2018?

BTW, has anyone seen the artwork for the regular 4k editions? Truly horrible.

Here's ANH. The rest are just as bad. Star Wars home video hasn't had good artwork on the releases since the earliest days of VHS, but these are a new low.


By contrast, here was the artwork on the first three movies on VHS:

Those are the same artwork used for the DVD re-releases last fall. I'm not surprised at all that Disney is reusing them.

Surprised? No. Disappointed? Yes. The original classics deserve so much better than this.

They still look better than those early 2000s VHS though.

I'd prefer the poster art but outside of that, I always liked the "faces" cover from the 1994 or '95 laserdisc and VHS releases. The special edition posters were cool especially since they ended up matching the prequel posters too.
