One thought on “Merchandising: ‘Doctor Sleep’ Among Latest Best Buy Steelbooks”

  1. The “Best Buy Exclusive” Steelbooks are lately SEVERELY lacking in quality. The 4K of The Wizard of Oz looked terrible, you can’t even see the patchwork on the Scarecrow’s face that was clearly visible on the blu-ray from several years ago. The 4K Steelbook of Iron Man 2 had such a low level on the sound that it was ridiculous…Are the pressing there own discs with just ANY source material. Oh! Don’t try to return a defective disc as they won’t take back ANY opened media!!!
