    Does anyone have a list of box sets that have been repackaged into thin cases? My shelf space is quickly becoming extinct.

    Forgive me if this has already been covered, but the search functionality didn't yield any immediate results.

    Sets I've seen so far:

    - Monty Python 16-Ton Mega Set
    - Jerry Lewis "Legendary" Collection

    any others...?

    I can think of a couple:

    - The Art of Buster Keaton (oh, for the $$!)
    - Horatio Hornblower Collector's Edition

    Jack:

    If you are talking about sets that were originally released in standard amaray cases...but then were re-released by the manufacturer in slim cases...then the only one I can think of right now is Ken Burn's Baseball documentary.

    However, rather than re-buy them, you know you always have the option to "slim down" your collection yourself. I even re-sized my Baseball cases myself!

    Pictures of my re-sized Baseball set are HERE.

    I'm all for the thin-style dvd cases but mutilating existing cases is just... evil.

    I'm not sure if they have been released yet but I had read not to long ago that the X Files season sets would be getting a re-release in those thin cases.

    The Kino set is 11 discs, not 15 (although, 15 if they included the two Arbuckle/Keaton discs and Milestone's "The Cook").

    A&E's reissue of The World at War is in thinpaks instead of HBO's snappers.

    I believe "Eerie, Indiana" originally came in amarays, but now uses thin cases.

    Yeah, the first three seasons of The X-Files are getting re-released in thin cases on January 31. I would assume that the rest will eventually be re-released like that too.

    The only 'problem' is that unless they go with those two disc thin packs (a la Wonderfalls), they'll be the same, or very nearly the same, size as the foldout ones. [​IMG]

    QUEER AS FOLK: S1 was repackaged into ThinPaks, but it appears to take up more space. The original release was a DigiPak in a custom cigar-style box. Probably more expensive to manufacture than the ThinPak sets.

    I LOVE LUCY: S1 and THE TWILIGHT ZONE were also reissued in ThinPaks.

    I might buy the Complete Emma Peel Avengers if the set was issued in thin-packs.
