Wow! This steelbook is just awesome! I guess that these new Autobahn steelbooks all look good but Shortbus definetly takes a price for that extra edge.
But it was an absolute pain to photograph this thing and the colour might come of as a little weird. The main tone of the tin is bright pink (dispite the redish look of the photos below).
The orgie-artwork for the front cover is done in a nice beigh skin-tone, clear white, and as a third installment, some of the bodys are also done in a metallic silver-like fashion (these look gray in most of the photos).
All in all, I guess it's the pink that really hits a nerve with me. I'm not a major fan of pink in everyday life but when you slam it onto a steelbook it's totally fuckin orgazmic.
This set seems to have most the same extras as the other regions but adds a short segment called Make Love Not War, while it's missing the short How To Shoot Sex featurette found on the R1 release.
But apart from this, it's all there; Audio commentary, Deleted scenes (this release has the same deleted scenes as featured on other releases but it seems that the titles of the individual scenes differ depending on which release you get) and a half an hour making of. As a great big plus, we also get the full length soundtrack CD with this release.
And finally: all the extras come with optional german subtitles.
The cover incorrectly states the aspect ratio as 1.85:1 when it's actually 1.78:1.
