I realize this is anal, but why is there only ONE Pixar Blu-ray that doesn't have a slipcase?

    Wall-E does not have a slipcase. Every other Pixar release before or since (and almost certainly all future releases) have them. I realize it sounds a bit picky, but were I to shelve all of my Pixar Blu-rays together, Wall-E would be like the ugly ducking. I called Disney customer service about this to ask if slipcases were available for this title, and was told that, no, they weren't. I admit I am overreacting, but I am pissed.

    I am pretty sure mine came with a slipcase. I will check when I get home and let you know. Although I have the habit of trashing them.

    If I do still have it, I'd be happy to mail it to you, as I don't usually keep them.

    I believe the 3-disc set had the slipcover, and the 2-disc did not.

    That's the version I have, which is why I remember mine having a slipcover.

    I throw slipcases away too, well except the lenticular ones.

    I've also noticed that after a title gets older stores toss the slipcovers when they're repricing them. None of the copies of The Dark Knight at my best buy has the slipcover with Batman on it. It's just the "Joker-ized" cover with Joker on the front and the back graffittied.

    Mine has it, but, it is the 3 disc version. BTW, if I remember correctly, Monsters, Inc. is the only Pixar one that doesn't have a slip cover. All of my Pixar DVDs have a slipcover except Monsters, Inc. I've never seen one and to my knowledge, it never came with one.

    ^ I think he means the Monsters, Inc. DVD never had a slipcase (I never saw one anyway) but the Blu-ray has one.
