    Amazon.de has an exclusive version of the Retaliation blu ray for sale.

    G.I. Joe: Die Abrechnung - Steelbook exklusiv bei Amazon.de 3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + DVD Limited Edition: Amazon.de: Filme & TV

    As it is a Paramount movie, it should be region free. Since it's Amazon, they do ship world wide. Once you check out, the price drops to 32.40 EUR, which converts to $42. So, it's a steep price, but it is a limited edition. The same case also went up for pre-order today on play.com (which only ships to the UK), and it already sold out it's 2,000 copies. Play.com - Buy G.I Joe: Retaliation (Entertainment Store Exclusive 2D & 3D Blu-Ray Steelbook) (Blu-ray) online at Play.com and read reviews. Free delivery to UK and Europe!

    I would hope that Best Buy, Target or Wal Mart would get a similar exclusive, but it wouldn't be an official Steelbook here. Probably a Metalpack. Yes, there's a difference. I went ahead and pre-ordered it off Amazon.de (I don't speak German, so I just clicked on the familiar buttons). If I see the US is getting something similar, I can always cancel the pre-order. But this was the exact cover I was hoping that they'd make, back when the people that saw the movie at a Regal Cinema showed off that free poster they got.

    Hmmm... I really want 2 get this steel book but $42 is a little too much. Does anyone know if this comes with the same special features that were shown on that one sheet?

    The discs will be the exact same as on the 3D Blu Ray, 2D Blu Ray and DVD combo packs sold here in the US, so it'll all be there.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some US retailer, either Best Buy or Target most likely, had a Retaliation exclusive. But it wouldn't be a steelbook since Paramount doesn't offer them in the US. The metalpacks look great, but they have that weird spine that makes the title really small on it. And they'd probably just use the same cover art that the regular combo pack will have. I pre-ordered this one just because I like that cover art so much. And since it's through Amazon, I can always cancel it at any time before it ships if I see a better deal somewhere else.

    You can find it on Walmart.com for $30 preorder right now. Same factory stock photo too. It's the same price as the standard Combo pack edition.
