Re: The Force Has Awoken. Steelbook Pre-Orders Open Now PLUS A Fun Contest...

That's because it's a Disney/Marvel release.  There's 2 editions.  BOTH are exactly the same content wise + case, only the exterior j-card are different.  For the Bilingual with French, I wonder if it's a sticker like previous release such as Fantasitc Four (2015) or like Maze Runner Scorch Trial.

 

Regular (english only j-card):

Bilingual (both English+French jcard)

Maybe @BBYBilly could confirm for a Sticker or not?

Thanks for the confirmation @BBYBilly.

 

Gotta ask though -- can you promise these steelbooks will actually be sent out in a box and not a crappy cardboard mailer? It's 2016 and these problems keep happening. Haven't ordered a steelbook for fear of it coming wrecked, so hoping this will be alleviated with the biggest movie of the year!


 

So no word on this through all the Stormtrooper entries @BBYBilly?

Wow, the force was not with me on this one was it? I'm very sorry @pikachuforever that I didn't reply sooner.

 

I just got word from our shipping team that The Force Awakens Steelbooks will in fact ship in cardboard boxes. Smiley Happy

 

How many times did you see TFA in theatres? I can't wait to watch it again.

I saw it 3 times.

Any confirmation on if the bilingual Steelbook will have the French text printed on it, or if it will just be a bilingual info card?

Thanks for letting us know @BBYBilly. Much appreciated.

 

I saw it twice -- once in IMAX and once in DBOX. Incredible experience both times. Can't wait to see it on Blu.

Hey @Danno82,

 

I've been told that the Bilingual version is expected to have both English & French on the cover and spine. 

 

Do you have the other movie steelbooks? Were they similar that way?

@BBYBilly
You sure? Not like the previous steel release like Fantastic Four with a simple sticker?

Previous Star Wars steels didn't have any French title. Only the jcard was bilingual

Hey @Drum18,

 

We've reached out to Disney to confirm. The info I got was from our rep here, but things can always change of course. Once Disney touches base with us and confirms the Bilingual details I'll be sure to pass them along to you. Smiley Happy

Have it in hand now. No French text on the cover or spine. Just the j-card as per the norm with these Marvel / Disney releases.
