I got really lucky with Psycho. Wasn't particularly into steelbooks at the time but when I found out the booklet wasn't in the normal one I got one cheap on Ebay in mint condition while they were still in the shops. Now, if the booklet had been in the regular Blu I probably wouldn't have bothered! :eek:

I didn't realise it was gone.

What normally happens with me with steelbooks is that if I buy them straight away they seem to be available still and all over the place, If I decide to wait a couple of weeks or can't afford at the time they are suddenly gone!!!!

Keep checking the CEX website.... I picked up the Psycho steelbook from there about 3 weeks ago for 12! It was in good condition too. You might find the odd copy left in HMV too for a tidy sum. I snapped up Shogun Assassin from zavvi.com for 15.45 last night, while its still about. The Wolfman steelbook is pretty cheap, about a tenner online. Metropolis steelbook cost me ~16 from CEX.

ps. I'm really looking forward to a release of Hitchcocks' The Man who knew too Much, my fave of his.

Cheers but I have already got it ;)

I only buy from CEX instore, Once I bought 4 things online and only got 1 of them. When I did a paypal claim for items not recieved I lost the claim because they said I should have done "incomplete package", I explained that they would have sent them seperately but it fell on deaf ears. cu*ts.

Yeah they are rubbish in terms of service, although I got to say I've never not received anything I've ordered. Well, apart from the things they fail to source online (which happens fairly often with the rarer items), in which case they email to say they could not find it and don't charge. Mind you I always pay through their site rather than paypal. Some items do come damaged when bought online.

I would advise KingOfWitches to keep checking the CEX site if he wants the Psycho steelbook for a good price...or travel to Hounslow or Middlesbrough where they supposedly have it in stock!
