    Couldn't find any other thread on this one, so I'm going ahead anyway.
    New Line is reissuing Austin Powers 1 and 2 in colored keepcases. IMOM will be the same cover art in a green keepcase and SWSM will be in a red keepcase. I'm gonna post a link, so I hope it comes up alright. You may have to dig!

    So I'm supposed to buy it again just to get a keepcase? They ought to give free case upgrades if you provide proof of purchase.

    At least it's a start. Hopefully they will do a re-call and send these new cases to stores.

    I looked all over that web site, and nowhere did I see a mention of this information.

    It's under the "Franchise" section. It takes a while to get through the animations, so here's a pic:

    Call me crazy, but I may consider re-buying Spy (I don't even have the first yet, so that won't be a "re-" buy).

    Just out of curiosity, who would be willing to replace their snappers with keepcases by purchasing them directly from Warner Bros. for a buck or two a piece should the snapper-to-keepcase conversion spread outside of the New Line division? I don't know if they would ever do anything like this but it would be nice.

    I would.

    I have the first Austin, and I'll definitely pick up the keepcase version to replace my snapper. I really hate snappers that much. And I'll pick up a keepcase version of Shagged at the same time, since I don't have that one yet.

    When are these coming out? In conjunction with Goldmember?

    I'd be comfortable paying $5 (including shipping) each for keepcases with cover art. C'mon New Line, please? [​IMG]

    Thank God I held off on buying the first two Austin Powers movies. Time to go and buy that trilogy box set.

    Here's an idea. Put up your snapper edition on ebay. When it sells, go out and buy the keepcase edition.

    Like Eric, I'm really glad I kept putting off these purchases. I'll definitely be getting all 3 of these.

    Thanks, New Line.

    If nothing else, they should at least offer high-res files of the keepcase covers and inserts for those converted from snappers, available for download.

    Wanna re-package my copies of Detroit Rock City, The Player, Pleasantville, Pump Up the Volume, and State & Main. Wow, I didn't realize how few NewLine pics I had in snappers! Boogie Nights, Se7en, and LOTR (when the time comes) I'll leave be.

    Back on my meds,

    Paul,
    They street the same day as Goldmember. I'll be replacing mine with keepcases for sure.

    I'll probably give my current discs to a friend. Bye-bye snapper!

    I don't mind keeping the snap case but if I could sell Austin Powers and the Spy Who Shagged Me both for $30 CAN then I guess I'll buy the new keep case DVD's.

    Well, colored keep cases are pretty cheap and custom covers based off the snappers are already available. Once the keep versions are out those scans will also be available.

    Good printer, good photo paper, works like a charm. I know I altered my Bonds some time ago with the nice poster art versions someone made.


    Now in regards to IMOM, I only have the LD still so maybe this will bump me to finally buy the DVD.

    In case anyone is interested here is a link to the Newline feedback page. Maybe with enough input we could get an exchange program going as someone else suggested or just buy the new cases & covers for a minimum.
    I sent in my suggestion.
