Universal is releasing an Exclusive to Amazon Limited Spaceship Edition of the 30th Anniversary Blu-ray Disc of Steven Spielberg's E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) in Germany. The Collectible set is available to pre-order from Amazon.de for its 25th of October release for the price of €159.99. While not explicitly verified by us, the DVD-Forum Austrian site states it will be limited to only 500 copies.
Bonus material included on the disc:
Steven Spielberg & ET: A brand new interview with Steven Spielberg, in which he talks about his work with the children and talks about his current and comprehensive view of ET.
The ET Journal: Behind the Scenes material of the Oscar winner John Toll (cinematographer). This piece gives the audience the unique feeling of being on location and experience with stress, as it was offset to shoot the aliens.
A Look Back: Making-Of, including interviews with Cast and Crew
The ET Reunion: The reunion: Cast and crew meet and express their thoughts on film.
The Evolution and Creation of ET: From idea to script, about the casting to the shooting.
The Music of ET: A Discussion with John Williams: interviews and footage of the long-standing relationship between John Williams and Steven Spielberg.
The 20th Anniversary Premiere: The composer John Williams on the occasion of the premiere of the new release of the film ET ET live music played at the Shrine Auditorium. This section allows us to look behind the scenes of this performance.
Consider yourselves lucky, U.S. geeks: The fact that it's only being sold in Germany gives you a good excuse NOT to drop €139.99 on a little plastic spaceship, and just spend $20 on the blu ray like a normal geek. If you really want to make sure you never get laid, you can always pick it up at a premium on eBay.
Looks like something from a box of cereal @kafziel Well said. Not only is this a chick repellant, imagine yourself in 30 years (when most of us are about 60 or 70) looking at this thing. That's a sorry image. I love blu-rays, but jeez...
i'm seriously getting sick of all the limited editions being europe exclusive!!!! now i'm not saying i'm interested in this piece of crap space ship edition but seriously 90% of the Steelbooks out are europe exclusive bs if you ask me...
Universal came up with the Back To The Future Delorean model and made it outta that cheap gray/silver model worth about less than 99 cents of what it was made of or bigger to sell for more than 10 to 20 bucks. so they wanna sell this for over 100's of barely for what its worth. geez i think ppl in this world have less room on shelves cause of blu ray' with too much width when most dont have that much money to even go by these days. most just need/or have to wait for better price drop even when they price them nearly 30 bucks after awhile just to wait for it to drop to 12..99 or even less at times or til only a blu disc or dvd disc version comes out a lil later.
They should just bring back the E.T. CE from 2002. It had a nice blue gift box, big hardcover book, CD soundtrack, and a "certificate of authenticity" (inane, but presentable). That CE was 1000x classier than this stupid chrome dome edition.
i would much prefer a steelbook also.. but i do question the movie companies at times. i would much rather them give us the option to buy collectible items like this ( steelbooks, collector sets like this one). all we get now is the cheap movies with the cheap cases..
Hey guys, I seriously don't think they would dare release that and charge $200 for it if it was a cheap piece of plastic. Imagine the complaints and returns they would get!! It looks like it might be made of some kind of metal, at least I hope so for that price! I wish they would show it open or at least have more information on it. Plus the fact that is a limited edition of only 500 pieces jacks the price up in itself, as well as being exclusive to Amazon Germany. I was really looking forward to this and now I don't know what to do.
