Hoping Best Buy gets this in the US.
Wonder if this gets a gloss treatment as well as debossed border/embossed title with glitter effect on it .

I think it’s an eyesore. Maybe it looks better in person.

I am not sure. I upload the images the usual way, using the image links from Zavvi. Maybe could be something to do with your browser?

Are people in the US able to buy this? If so, is there a different release time for the US or is it the same (like 1am pst)?

Kinda new shopping at zavvi but this is the first time I can't save to wish list even tho it's sold out. Also wow, posted the thread two days ago and it's sold out already?
Until now also I've see zavvi UK exclusives show up on fnac but again, not this one. Is there something I'm not aware of?

I love the looks of this, I gotta have it.

It will also be at Best Buy in the US (according to another forum online).

And it's not sold out at Zavvi. It hasn't gone on sale yet, and after all these years, Zavvi still lists items as "sold out" before they go live. No one understands this, but it's the way it has always been.

(Very unlikely that this is going to sell out quickly, though you never know.)

That is great news thank you.
Yes it's pretty silly what they do. So far I noticed links to pre-orders that are not live yet lead you to a generic page, and now thanks to you I know that links to items that are not live but not sold out aren't saveable to wish lists (apparently the only tell-tale sign).
And if they are pre-orders, show as sold out, and you can save them to wish list in the hope they come back in stock, are actually sold out before the release date.
Well I hope I can remember that.

It has nothing to do with whether it will be released in other countries.

Good example is every time Disney releases a new SteelBook. In the UK you can only purchase it from Zavvi but the same SteelBooks with a better finish are always available to be purchased in the U.S. and Canada from Best Buy because Best Buy has the Disney SteelBook exclusives.

But as michaelclarke said somebody makes that Zavvi exclusive comment every single time. lol.

And somebody makes my point every single time.
That's not good news, is it really true and always the case that zavvi exclusives in the UK are done with better finish in the US? Are we talking about matte vs glossy only? That would be bad enough already.

Another thing for Zavvi: If an item truly is sold out, you'll see the text "Sorry, unfortunately this product is currently out of stock. Add it to your wishlist to receive a back in stock email notification." That line means that the preorder date has come and gone, and the item is sold out. Even then, there's a chance it will come back in stock before or just after the shipping date. And sometimes months or years later. (The Fury Road Black & Chrome steelbook came back in stock a few weeks ago for an hour or so, and it had been sold out for many months.)

There's no way to predict what the finish will be on a steelbook, and what differences there might be between different countries.

I'm going to make a prediction here: Some retailer (HDZeta, Black Barons, Filmarena, EverythingBlu, Blufans) will make a premium edition with this steelbook. It just has that kind of feeling to it. I'm only posting this publicly so that I can say "I knew it!" if it happens.

Here's the mistake a lot of people make...they don't pay enough attention to the original post or check it more than once. The information that you need when it comes to Zavvi releases is always right there:

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory 4K Steelbook Zavvi Exclusive UK

Release Date: Jun 28, 2021 (This will be Live Tuesday - May 04, 2021 @ Noon UK Time/0900 RC Members)

I would certainly buy this if BB releases here. Right now they have no 4K listed at all.

I like the SB but I’m more excited that it will be a 4K . Do we know if this is 4K or is it a 4K transfer.

I am still relatively new to buying on zavvi so pardon me asking these questions, and I've read it would not be the first time they are ignoring their live dates I have read. Better safe than sorry, having lost out of many desirable releases.

They should get it. They normally share the print run (sometimes with different finishes) with the UK.

You don't want to be one of the five owners in the world of a golden ticket?

You mean that's how many who will pay 25£ for it? ;-)
I do wonder if they would ship this separately like they do with every item ordered.
