    My neighbor just bought Terminator 2:UE and guess what. It is now a two disc set in a Double Alpha with a cardboard sleeve. I kinda like it more than my metal case. The Double Alpha just makes it that much more appealing.

    I hate the metal slip case. Every time I pick it up from my shelf the box drops out of it onto the floor!

    Agreed, I am not a fan of the 'tin'. maybe if they'd bothered to make it go the whole way round...
    In fact I'd much rather have it on two DVD9's with nice picture labels instead of a worryingly scratch-worthy DVD18 any day. I don't understand this fascination with DVD18 - they're just not fun.

    I heard some time ago that the tin was a "Limited Edition" so that is probably why it stopped. As for DVD-18, I like it, it must keep the cost down to some degree. And I have seen the artwork for the limited number of 2-Disc tin sets they released, and trust me your not losing much.

    I purchased this wonderful dvd in April. My discs come in a Metal slipcase with booklet and singluar amaray case with an internal "flap" that you place the 2nd disc on. Is this 2 disc set of T2UE rare?

    The 2 disc "Metal Slip" version is the rare one. All signs show that Artisan will no longer produce the DVD-18 version either.

    I wouldn't call the one with the metal slipcase "rare" since it was released over a year ago and the metal slipcases are just now starting to run out. You can probably get a profit of about $1 on ebay for this one [​IMG].

    I think what he's referring to is the presence of two DVD-9s in his copy of T2:UE. Very few were made that way, perhaps as a backup in case of yield problems with the DVD-18 that most of us got.

    This is a reference that I have stored in the spreadsheet I use to list my DVD collection. I am certain the info hasn't changed in 1½ years, so I'm not running to double-check it or anything. Here's what I've got:

    The metal slip case sucks. It looks cool, and I like the idea behind it, but it just doesn't work well with the case for the dvd.
    I will have to try some of the suggestions mentioned above.

    I just got one the 2 DVD sets in the metal slip case from Buy.com, arrived 4 or 5 days ago. It says DVD-18 at Buy.com, guess they have some of the old versions in stock however, because I got 2 DVD-9s.

    I lucked out and got the two disc Tin with the pretty pictures and what not. I don't have a problem with the metal case (I think it's a nice touch), but I am aware of the slipping problem. That's why with my cat-like reflexes [​IMG] , I catch the case before it falls out.

    I too used to be stressed about the metal slip-case (a proper term if ever there was one) but then one day I put the metal case on my mantle, along with all my pretty, shiney Anchor Bay tins, and put the double amaray keepcase in my dvd collection proper. I feel that I have taken back my life, and greet each new day with hope and vigor! You too can get over this, and reclaim your life! Be excited!
