Official street date is June 11th for U.S. and Canada territories (Region A). Only 5,000 units of the Steelbook are being produced total. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
The artwork you see on the Steelbook is from artist Nathanael Marsh (who also illustrated Scream Factory's prior Carpenter-themed steelbooks). If you order directly from Scream Factory's site though, your packaging will also include an exclusive 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph of the illustration. (The litho will not be available elsewhere and only 1,500 of them each are being made).
