It was previously believed that the mega-cool Inception Briefcase Blu-ray set revealed a few months ago would be exclusive to Europe, leaving fans stateside with out the traditional Blu-ray release to snatch up on December 7.
Warner Bros. heard the cries of Christopher Nolan fans and today began taking pre-orders for the Inception Briefcase Blu-ray set exclusively through their WBShop.com website. For those new to this set, it includes (in addition to Inception on Blu-ray) a metal briefcase measuring 9 x 6.5 x 2.75 inches; a full-color ‘The Cobol Job’ comic measures 5.75 x 4 inches and 33 pages long; a 10-page black & white PASIV instruction manual measuring 5.75 x 4.5 inches; full-color art cards measuring 5.75 x 4 inches; and of course a heavyweight zinc alloy spinning top totem at 1.25 inches in diameter and 1.5 inches tall.
There are fewer than 2,000 of these very limited special edition sets being made available in the United States. If you want the Inception Briefcase Blu-ray set for $49.99 (free shipping if you spend $60 or more) then you best head to WBShop.com right now.
