[Best Buy] 4K Avengers 1-4 Steelbook collection, 79.99$

Recently dropped to 80$ from 100$. Still at 150$ at American Best Buy.

Comes with individual digital codes. Low ratings due to dented case during shipping.

Edit: Also gives you 800 Disney Movie Insider points.

Just be warned that these are most likely mostly returns due to damage. The outer cases came WRECKED to a lot of people.

Good price but I have them all in 3D Steelbook form. Had to import after Age of Ultron from the UK but the 3D got better and better as they went along. Although I will admit that the Infinity War 4K disc looked great

Is there a source for this? I see one person leaving a bad review on the best buy website.

It’s cheaper than the standard Blu rays and DVDs per movie... you could buy DVDs if you want.

Absolutely NOT. I work in the VFX industry, and I hear this comment all the time in all sorts of home theatre discussions. Yes, a good few of the "budget" vfx films have elements rendered below the 4k resolution, but most are rendered above the home video resolution of "2k", and the mastering/grading of uncompressed / raw / high dynamic image frames are a much more involved process than just up-rezing an image/sequence in Adobe Premiere or Photoshop.

Yes its a better upscale than just using photoshop, it also has hdr. Or is there something else I dont know? Several sources claim most of these movies are 2K/1080p.. and they certainly dont look like native 4K to my eyes.

Yup. That's the main reason I stopped buying Steelbooks and will be selling my entire Shout Factory collection.
Tired or getting dented ones and then having to return them and wait for new ones.
