    Also surprising that Amazon has a pre-order listing for a Disney release!

    The 4K UHD steelbook release is a Best Buy exclusive.

    I don't quite understand the popularity of steelbooks.

    Or why Best Buy never orders enough to fulfill their preorders... at least with Disney titles.

    I love 'em myself, even though they spend 99.9 % of their time sitting on a shelf with just their spines exposed. Think of it as the difference between a hardcover book vs the paperback version . Steelbooks / hardbacks just seem like a luxury version of the products.

    I already have the UK steelbook version of The Incredibles on Blu-ray, and I don't believe I've ever watched it ! On normal terms I would appear to be odd, but somehow I think most everyone on this forum can identify with my statement. :)

    It's just not worth the extra monies to me as I'm not one to gaze at my film collection in a bookshelf, but instead spend my time actually watching the films in those disc cases.

    I don't mind that some collectors want nice packaging for their discs, just as I like the old paper packets for my beloved View-Master reels better than the plastic blister-packs. But indeed it's the content that really matters, and steel case without a 3-D disc of a 3-D movie doesn't interest me.

    Sitting with a glass of port and your dog by your side gazing at your steelbook shelves is one of life's true unsung pleasures.

    Hey I have no problem with anybody buying steelbooks, it's just not my thing as those extra monies add up that I can use on other releases.

    Occasionally ill buy a steelbook if the alternative artwork appeals to me, like the jumanji steel that looked like the case for the game. And I like having no info on the back cover.

    But I don't own many, and the artwork on this version of the incredibles isn't exactly screaming at me. All of the great artists at Pixar and this is the best anyone could do?

    Love the film though and am very much looking forward to a 4k version.

    Not all that unusual to have a some preorder time period (at least for Catalog Titles) usually at full price, it just doesn't seem to stay available for very long. Once it goes OOS then it tends to stay OOS until release day and most of the time they end up PM somebody though many start to panic a couple days prior to release. I guess we'll see if this stays active more than a day or two and if it's really a change though with nothing for Peter Pan and Wrinkle in Time I'm not expecting things to follow too much of a different path.

    Shipping of those preorders ahs also been irregular sometimes coming on usual release day delivery, but as often as not being delayed up to a month.

    I think the only steelbooks I have are the Dario Argento film releases from Synapse Films, as it was the only way to buy the special editions of Suspiria, Phenomena and Tenebrae at the time.

    So you're saying that Disney titles HAVE shown up on Amazon as preorders briefly?

    Wasn't aware of that - I thought they were DOA period!

    I have a handful of Steelbooks, most of which I've picked up on sale. One of the only times I've paid full price for a Steelbook was GOTG Vol. 2, and that was to get the 3D disc. No regrets.
