I don't know if Disney has done one before or not, but they're doing one for Thor 2.

Not from the employee that confirmed Thor
since Best buy only works on ads 4 weeks in advance so maybe in 2-3 week they can confirm 100%

Added it to my cart for the time being will wait a few weeks for better confirmation of whether there will indeed be a steelbook before finishing the order.

Ah the Thor2 steelbook mystery thickens.
With about a month until street date, we should be getting some definitive info quite soon:
Will this have 3D?
Will it have a title on the spine?
Is it a steelbook, or metalpak?
Has Disney and Scanavo finally kissed and made up?

You really can't make this stuff up! I call it the Steelbook Soap Opera.

There has been in-hand pics used for confirmation, or does confirmation come from the mock-up floating around?
Don't get me wrong, as I want all of what you said to happen...just placing all your eggs in a mock-up basket has proven to be risky business.

Must be from different sites. I've seen the post you quoted in the OP, and I've seen the one "source" over the FS thread. Unless I missed some other thread on this site, that's it.
Again, I'm hoping for the best, but preparing for another over anxious "mock-up" parade. That's why I'd be much happier with an in-hand pic, which would sell me.
In any event, as I said, we've got about 5 weeks to go. I figure in 2-3 weeks, in-hand pics will start to surface, if not sooner.

Just to mention, if this all happens, as you say, with Thor2, that would have to mean DisneyUS made up with Scanavo somewhere along the line...and I'd sure like to see any information pertaining to that!
OR, maybe Disney just went ahead and bought Scanavo. Wouldn't that be a hoot!

Yes
different sources from different sites didn't wanna quote them all, but i do agree if this begins an onslaught of Disney Steels for the US and Disney realizes they sell like gangbusters,I can see ton's of titles being released much like what Zavvi is doing right now.

This could be huge, if true, no doubt about it. A real game changer, of sort, as you mentioned it would could really tear into Zavvi's Disney sales, that's for sure!
Then if BB were to sign another deal with Disney...wow, it's going to bring quite a bit of traffic their way.
