    Is it the cool unfolding cross or the plain jane 3 in 1 box cover?
    Anyone know? I've seen pics of both.

    R2 was a cross, I think it was changed for R1. I believe they are going with the book look that season 2 (r2) started. All seasons will now be inside the 'Buffy Book'

    Well there you have it, looks like we'll be getting the Book layout. Which is nice, this way all the sets will be the same. I just hope FOX learned it lesson from the many scratched discs that surfaced in Europe. Hopefully the sleves of the book have been re-vamped ( [​IMG] ) so these scratches dont happen to us.
    Also, I'm guessing that the R1 release wont have the booklet that came with the R2 release? That too bad, but all the info is probably inside the book, before the discs.

    I saw pics and it looks different?
    www.amazon.com
    www.dvdplanet.com
    Check on those sites, the pics are way different. I think they changed it and those sites don't know.

    Thats the 'generic' pic that amazon had up this time last year as well. I think its just a graphic someone came up with becuase they didnt have a shot of the box yet.

    The pic up at Amazon is the cover shot of the cross packaging as originally solicited for the 1/01 release before it was pulled and Fox decided to go with the book design.

    I figured that they just had the old pic, and they went with an new one because of the delay.

    My guess is that this packaging is going to work just like the Simpsons box that was just released. I don't have any problem with that!
