Default Your First Steelbook

I realise this thread has been made before but I thought I'd ressurect it. So what was your first steelbook?
When did you get it, how much was it, did you plan on getting it or was it an impulse buy, had you seen the movie before, was it Blu-ray or DVD. Was this what got you into steelbook collecting or did it take a few before you became addicted.

My first steelbook was Daredevil the Definitive Edition, I bought it in 2007/08 I think.
I bought it in HMV in Heathrow airport on my way home from London. It was pretty much an impulse buy, I had seen it in cinemas when it came out but couldn't really remember it so I got it, I think it was 15

This didn't really get me into steelbooks, I've only become properly addicted in the last few months or so and as you'd expect my steelbook collection and Blu-ray collection is pretty small. I'm only just switching from DVDs.

So whats yours?

My first Steelbook was the Ratatouille Best Buy exclusive. I was just getting into Blu-ray's and I didn't even realize it was different packaging than the standard release until waaaaay later lol. No wonder I spent nearly $40!

My first ever steelbook was my Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Hardened Edition for the PS3. My first Movie Steelbook was the Scarface Steelbook (I believe I paid $25 for it).




I never knew about steelbooks until I discovered this forum. I just thought it was a random, "unique" packaging.

My steelbook bug hit me last May when Underworld: Awakening was released and from there on the rest is history.

Below is the link for the original thread in case anyone is interested

Technically, it was a DvD and it was A Best Buy exclusive DUNE.

I had no idea at the time that steelbook was something I could look into and find more of. I always just thought my DUNE was so cool.

I'm pretty sure my first Blu Steelbook was Deathproof.

My first one was the Sweeney Todd UK import, only bought it because it wasn't available in NA yet, didn't really care that it was a steelbook.
