With rumours flying around about solo Star Wars, Directors, casting and an all singing all dancing house of mouse installments of Star Wars; Fox and Lucas Film are taking a stab at one last hoorah into the Star Wars honey pot as they do something truly great.... They're releasing STEELBOOKS!!! Oh that magic word... or two words depending on your preferences, then they attach LIMITED to it and it's a MUST BUY!!!! For me at least, those are words that make my geeky heart pump a little faster...
Here's a short press release announcing the sets in question along with some pack shots. There's no news on a US release yet but as we all know, Steelbook releases alter from territory to territory, some don't get any at all :( That last statement makes me sad!
