This is obviously a very collectable case just for it's rarity factor but it's also a good looking tin case overall.
The tin is all glossy and the front cover is slightly embossed on the title logo. The back cover is actually made up of two background colours - if you look closely you'll notice a slight colour shifting just to the left of the starmax logo (so the left side is a slightly lighter gray from there on).
It's basically just two horizontal fields - the slightly blurish siluettes and the lighter portion on the bottom part of the tin aren't printed, there's just reflections of the table and myself as I'm taking the picture.
I really don't get the odd colouring of the back-cover, but judging from the image linked in the sidenotes, this might have been an issue on all cases (?).
The inside is just plain tin with a glued on digitray. Also in the case is a 2 page chapter index and a promotional booklet for Starmax.
The disc contents appear to be exactly the same as the R1US special edition from MGM (except for a possibly missing easter egg and some added text based extras in Korean).
The menus are in english so navigating is pretty simple, but a couple of the menu options have been translated very poorly (the featurettes section especially). Furthermore: the film includes the original burnt-in captions (same as the R1 version).
A lot of the deleted scenes and other old behind the scenes material are of poor quality but the material iteself is still very fun to look at.
All in all a pretty decent edition but there's nothing on the disc that we havn't seen before so the main reason to pick this up would be for the packaging.
(even though it's still a fine disc to begin with)
While in the deleted scenes submenu, highlight the "Planting The Bomb" scene and press left. This will highlight a question mark on the remote control in the background. Press enter to see an interview with John Ottman (17m 42s).
This edition was released by Starmax back in 2002 and is rumored to have sold out very quickly. There is no official number on how many sets were made and to this day I don't know of any other website that has actually provided a real photo of this edition at any point in time (so yeah, this is one hell of a rare set). To be honest, I didn't really believe it excisted until I actually held it in my hand.
The original barcode only appeared on a plain white sticker (most likely on the outside of the original plastic seal). This sticker was never included with my copy as it was purchased through second hand sources.
(special thanks to "jab" for letting me know about this and also linking this image that he found on madmad.co.kr)
