Inception Steelbook Limited Collector Edition Metal Briefcase Review

Inception. Steelbook and Metal Briefcase Review.
Whats inside, is it worth it?
First the Movie. What a great concept and story, originality is truly born out of thought. Here's the review of the Limited Edition Metal Briefcase set that was released. I ordered the UK version one hoping for the Steelbook to be included. Which leads me to probably my only complaint WHERE IS THE STEELBOOK and WHY WASN'T IT PART OF THE COLLECTORS SET? Not much of a limited edition without the steelbook. So to remedy the situation I ended up buying the steelbook copy. So this will be a combined review of the Briefcase and Steelbook.

What you care about:
The Outer Box: It's made of sheet plastic which if hit to hard will crack to just be careful when handling. Window Box on the front to let you see the briefcase.

The Briefcase: First it's small, just slightly bigger then a blu-ray case. You won't be getting a full size briefcase. Also they didn't bother to put a handle to carry the thing.

The inside: Grey hard foam was used to hold everything together. On the left is the spot for the Blu-ray and the right is for the the art cards and the PASIV manual. As well a working totem that Cobb uses is included. The totem is pretty cool.

The Steelbook (Sold Separately): The cover is of one of the theatrical posters (my favorite one). The great thing about steelbooks is that they are like virgin comic covers. They aren't cluttered with writing, it's all about showcasing the artwork. I'll let the pictures let you decide what you think about it.

The briefcase gets a 2 out of 5 (no steelbook included and kind of cheap materials used)
The Steelbook gets a 4 out of 5 (Artwork on the box makes its a favorite)
The movie a 5 out of 5 (Great writing, directing and concept)
