If you're a steelbook collector, then no doubt the dreaded 'stickerbook' counts as one of the world's most unforgivable crimes. They're not all that common though, and for the unitiated the phrase stickerbook describes a steelbook case with a big sticker on the front and rear to depict the artwork, rather than the more expected printed cases.
Personally I avoid them as they can look cheap, and feel collectors should be warned the just-released Play.com Source Code exclusive steelbook is a stickerbook. I was expecting Play's edition to be up to their previous exclusive steelbook standards, their excellent Star Trek Blu-ray being a prime example, and it was a bit disappointing to find it was a stickerbook.
The artwork's still good though, and it was available at a considerably lower price than many other steelbook editions. Has anyone else purchased this edition and not been pleased with sticker artwork? Would you prefer to know it's not a painted case in the future before pre-ordering?
