It's a futurepak, but the version on amazon.de is cut. when you want the uncut version, then you have to order it on a Austrian or Swiss site.
the eyes glow and you can hear the theme when you push the button.

There doesn't seem to be an answer yet if the Futurepak will be uncut or not, it's listed with the uncut running time(93 Mins.), and as far as I have looked, this is the only release of the Metalpak, the Austrian/Swiss releases are either a 4-Disc Hardbox(2 Covers) which is OOP, or a single disc release with the German poster cover(as seen above). Regardless, this version of Halloween II is only slightly different encoded version of the Universal 30th Anniversary release, minus "Terror In The Aisles", so if you have the Universal or Shout release, or any other Uncut release, It'll probably be the same.

Which is why I preordered this really for just the sweet Futurepak.

Halloween II is banned in Germany, ridiculous and sad at the same time, so there is no chance to get the uncut version on amazon.de. I read that they will the release the futurepak also in Austria and German-speaking Switzerland.

uncut vs. German cinema version/VHS
http://www.schnittberichte.com/schni....php?ID=823727
2 seconds missing, home cinema version was seized
syringe vs. nurse was cut

uncut vs German SPIO/JK
http://www.schnittberichte.com/schni...php?ID=3350905
55 seconds missing, worst violent scenes were removed

(use google translate for description of the scenes that got removed)

and there was also uncut vs German FSK16 (16+)
http://www.schnittberichte.com/schni...t.php?ID=56228
2 minutes 22 seconds missing, literally all violent scenes were removed


And if you thought that was bad, the German Robocop 16+ cut is hilarious, the whole movie makes no sense anymore.
20 minutes were cut from it. http://www.schnittberichte.com/schni...ht.php?ID=4280

Me too, Gojira9. Not sure why, but that logo has never worked for me, which is why I bought the US digibook instead.
