Woohoo, I guess we won't be stuck with that crappy Homer "11" packaging! Posted Image simpsonschannel.com has what might be the standard box art if you're interested.

is the krusty head going to be the same as the other heads?

the pic on amazon looks like the plastic head but on a full box, not head shaped.

^I'm curious about that to. Maybe it's more like a plastic slipcase but with some of the facial features embossed?

^
this is exactly what it is, a plastic box with a "3-d" head shape on the outside of the box with a clear slp case over that.

this is the 3rd type of case this series will e released in.

doesnt bother me but I know some need everything exactly the same.

On Target's "Upcoming Releases" sign in the DVD section, they showed the standard package art, which is merely Krusty against a blue background--no 3-D head crap. And Target's ad next week mentions both a regular version and a limited version for the same price.

The regular version popped up very very late in the scheme of things. I prefer the regular edition but had preordered the head version a week or so before the regular one was posted. Oh well.

The lack of standard edition art, the difficulty in finding the standard edition, and the extra 5 bucks it costs on Amazon is what led me to not pre-order Season 11. Instead, I'll pick it up somewhere tomorrow.

I have learned that Fox didn't make the availability info of the "standard" set very obvious to retailers and wholesalers, so if you don't find this at your store anytime too soon it would not surprise me.

I can tell you that the UPC code for the "plain" box is 024543557708 (whereas the UPC code for the "Limited Edition Krusty Head" box is 024543515609). In case that helps.

These are both "USA" versions, and are not to be confused with the Canadian "bilingual" versions (UPC's 024543515616 for Krusty-head and 024543557715 for plain).

I felt the same exact way. It's amazon's loss if you ask me. Because if you log on, you can only find the Krusty's head version (as of this writing). So I guess I'll just have to look at BestBuy or somethin'...

Target advertised both editions in their flyer on Sunday.

The second plain-box edition is on the Amazon site, it just doesn't have a photo to go w/it. It's also about $10 more, wtf?!

I heard that they are using cardboard-sleeves to house the discs. If this is true i might reconsider purchase

the 3-d head version does appear to have a folded sleeve contraption inside

I guess we'll find out soon enough.

It's true... folded cardboard sleeve. The discs are wedged in the sleeves and are really difficult to get out. Fox uses slimcases for all their other releases now, why not The Simpsons?

I got the "head" version yesterday from Amazon. I didn't like the way it stuck out, but I discovered that you can just peel the head off the box, and then it has the same cover as the non-head version. I didn't like the cardboard sleeve packaging, so I was wondering if the non-head verison had the same packaging. Since it looks like they just stuck the head on the box, I doubt that the packaging is different, but if it is, I will be replacing my set.
If anyone gets the non-head version, let me know if the packaging is the same.

In regards to removing the "3D Head" part of the package:

I've heard from some people that the "regular" art (the one I show at TSoD) is under there. I've heard from others that it's just empty under there.

I guess it depends on how your particular copy was manufactured. So, before you go mauling your box, be aware.

That's pretty lame...everything about this release has been totally off, from the delay to the lack of packaging information...odd considering how it's almost universally considered the worst season.

I hate how this show isn't using slimcases yet. Hell, they could even do four singles for all I care. I applaud them for saving shelf space but cheap packaging isn't the way to do it.

The non-head version is in an accordion folded monstrosity with the discs slipped in the cardboard sleeves... so I guess it's the same as the head version.

For some reason, since the limited edition heads started, Fox has been putting the Simpsons discs in the worst inner packaging imaginable. two slim cases would do the job, and probably cost less than all this specialty crap they come up with (IMO).

Be careful at Best Buy. The local one is charging ten dollars more for the non-head version. I'm not sure if this is national or not. It makes no sense that the non-3D packaging costs more than the special packaging. Target has both versions for the same price.
