I'm sure that TD was just a fluke in my case, but it does have me looking for a backup in case history repeats itself.
I'm lucky and have a decent Target just 15 minutes from my house and right across the street from my work. So getting stuff from them is pretty easy. My only worry with these three upcoming Mondo steelbooks from Target is that they won't be packaged well and show up damaged. If that happens getting a replacement could be quite a hassle if not impossible.

Same here. Hoping this gets them put into a box rather than a bubble mailer.

I know Mondo have their fans, and there's a few things of theirs I like, but none of their Thing designs do it justice, and some are outright horrible. This is pretty meh, but a helluva lot better than the godawful UK steelbook, which was one of the ugliest things ever, and not in a good 'you gotta be ******* kidding' Thing thing way.

As much as I like Struzan's iconic (and now thoroughly overused) art for the film, I wish someone would use the UK quad art (by Les Edwards) just once.

Can someone add this to the site's database?
Please excuse my ignorance, but what are these Steelbooks? Extra Features?

Same discs as the previous releases. Nothing new except the packaging although I am not sure whether or not they will have UV codes.

I don't care how collectable the packaging is...give me a new transfer and/or additional extras, or else I'm sticking with the current release.

The ironic thing is The Thing is a rare BD where they used the original poster for the art. Can't ask for anything better than that IMO, steel or not.

It also has that nice, extra thick paper cover with a metal-like shine that Universal used on their early BD, as well as their HDDVD releases. The cover is great, only thing missing is the HDDVD transfer.

The German steelbook is awesome, but "DAS DING" is one of the funniest things ever written on a blu ray cover.

Some DVD releases around the world used the 2002 video game art as the cover:
