It’s the Tuesday after MCM Comic Con London May 2016 and All the Anime have released their post Comic Con Newswire featuring more details on their announcements from the weekend.
Let start with the Full Metal Alchemist Ultimate Edition Blu-ray that was announced on Friday. Expected to be released in October of this year it will be limited to 970 units exclusive to the UK. The main feature of the set will be a 31cm x 25cm replica of the gate seen in the show. Inside the gate will be the entire series, made up of the two separate Collector’s Edition sets that will be released at a later date. The set will also feature a 320-page art book thats to act as a definitive companion to the series.
If you pre-order before the 1st October you’ll also get a custom Alchemist certificate, featuring your name and a special Alchemist name. Pre-orders are only available exclusively through AllTheAnime.com and Zavvi.com. The SRP for the Ultimate Edition is a whopping £299.99, but you can pre-order for only £124.99 before 5th July and then £149.99 until 1st October. I’ll let you make your own decisions on whether this “Ultimate Edition” is worth the entry fee.
