Did anyone else know that these were being released tomorrow..?

I wish I had known about this sooner as I wouldn't have purchased a number of these titles, but what I'd like to know more importantly... is whether any of you think that the discs packaged in these sets will have their snappers replaced for regular keepcases?


If so, I will be picking up all 3 tomorrow and selling the current DVD's that I already own.

What are your thoughts on these?

I'll definitely be picking up the Musicals set as it seems perfectly themed, but I'm not so sure about the others as I already own "The Life Of Emile Zoe", "One Flew Over The Cukoo's Nest", "Unforgiven" and "Amadeus".

It would be a really convenint storage for them however, unless WB is just going to stuff the current snapper cases in with the two-disc special editions. If that's the case, I think I'll pass...

Actually... upon closer inspection of the cover art detailed on the front of the last box-set, it doesn't even look as though the Special Editions of "Unforgiven" or "One Flew Over The Cukoos Nest" are being packaged.

I haven't found any specs online so I'm curious as to whether Warner Bros. is releasing this to try and get rid of their older discs or whether despite the artwork, the two-discs sets are actually going to be included?

Amazon also lists a monster 18-movie set:

Amazon claims it includes 2-disc SEs when they exist - and the 4-DVD Gone With the Wind! If that's true, this set is a hellacious bargain: $200 MSRP - and $140 discounted at Amazon - for all those flicks!

That 18-movie set is an excellent deal... roughly $8 per movie.

I dont think that last one is a box-set though, simply a bargain price on the lot of films listed. It's like a bundle packaging of DVD's at a discoutned offer...

Anyone know how the packaging is going to be considering each box set has a mix of titles that were in digipacks, snappers, and amarays.
