Pre-ordered. I won't give up my old VHS (no, that's no misprint) boot though as I suspect the soundtrack will be changed due to licensing issues.

Awesome dudes! One of, if not, the best animated film to come out of the 80s! Great soundtrack too, which I just recently picked up! Steelbook would be a nice, but hoping for at least a great Sony transfer and lossless audio. Anyone know if it was restored or what work went into bringing this one to Blu?

Wonder if this will be exclusive to Best Buy USA like Anchorman was or if we will see it in Canada as well... I really hate these retailer exclusives.

I am going to wait for a review. Awesome movie, but I am curious if the print is cleaned up.

Well, this is no good; as usual, Best Buy exclusives are not available here in Canada and Best Buy US won't ship to Canada. I really hate Best Buy; they suck

I agree with most people, they need to stop these exclusives so that they are available to everyone.

thats sort the way we here in the us feel about those futureshop exclusives in canada.

@backgroundactorman
At least the Future Shop exclusives are all for movies that are available everywhere so you can still get the movie. You get a steelbook at FS; but in the case of Heavy Metal (and Anchorman before that) these movies aren't available elsewhere and that really sucks. We'll probably have to wait three to six months for it to be available at all retailers...

At least you guys get the friggin movie. Even if you don't get those "exclusive" steelbooks, at least you get the amaray. We're stuck without the movie until a later release date.

Along with Sleepy Hollow, the Heavy Metal DVD looks fantastic when upscaled on a Bluray player. Probably in my top 5 of best upconverted discs in my collection.

"Pre-ordered. The price is right, too!"

Of course, one never knows how cheap it might have been if it wasn't an exclusive.

For those who aske about the canadian branches, I bouth the green miles while it was an exclusive at Best Buy so you can still hope that later the title could be availaible within a couple of weeks.

Preordered, too much to hope for a steelbook? Would seem to make sense given the namesake..
