Well I'll admit that certain packages such as The Monkees record player sets and even the Man From U.N.C.L.E. attache case work because they adhere to the qualities of the programs and nostalgia of the era. Even though I hated the way the discs were packaged in The Monkees seasons, I loved the faux 45rpm picture sleeves and felt it a great concept. Now in my opinion, the design would've worked much better had they produced a full sized box with larger sleeves and actual protective paper inserts for the discs like singles come in. But I can't really complain about these sets! Now stuff like Planet Of The Apes on the other hand, is a different story! A giant monkey head means nothing to me and just seems ridiculous looking sitting on my DVD shelf. This is the kind of thing I hate! At least if they're going to take a classic television series and reduce it to some novelty package, replicate some vintage or obscure marketing product design that clearly resembles and represents the spirit and nostalgia of the era it comes from. Such as The Monkees sets "sort of" accomplished. But keep your treasure chests and alien heads for the contemporary mainstream blockbuster junk that the fanboys feed into and keep classic releases somewhat classy! PS - I think I'll give the TZ set a try since at least two people in this thread seem to have had no problems with it. I'll be sure to buy it in person though and examine carefully.
