    I know many of you won't be getting this stuff until it's in box sets. For those of you interested, though, here are the covers:

    It would be very nice if these would come out in boxed sets. I wonder why Warner doesn't listen to its customers very well? In the Warner chat, every third question was if boxed sets of these were coming, or some comment that they desired them in boxed sets. Questions were met with a copy/paste scripted answer, and comments were largely ignored.

    Apparently, the customers WANT boxed sets, and they are ignoring us. You would think that they would have learned their lesson with Friends, but apparently not.

    First Snappers, and now this...

    Be aware that the B:TAS release above was already announced and planned out prior to the chat you speak of. They have simply just now gotten around to getting the cover art out.

    Good point, but they did indicate that none are planned. Although not said directly, I kept getting the feeling that they were saying "QUIT ASKING! It isn't going to happen!".

    Maybe that was just the dark side of me talking, but that was the way I perceived it (not they they were rude about it mind you - they weren't. I am also not attacking them, so I don't want to lead down this path)

    The only reason why I brought it up was to point out what appears to a disregard for input for matters of what they percieve as trivial points. [i.e. Let's ask what movies they want, but not how they should be packaged].

    Again, I don't want to start a flame war against WB gents for attending the chat. I appreciated it very much, and am looking forward with pocketbook in hand for a few of their yet-to-be-officially-announced releases.

    I also don't want to discourage them from coming, as hopefully they took the requests for boxed set sand let it be known that we REALLY want them. And then maybe the next time this happens, and we have to ask again, maybe a few more ears will listen, and eventually, things will work out for the betterment of both customer and company.

    Go back and re-read the chat.

    Warner was asked several time about B:TAS season sets.

    First reply was "not happening".
    Second reply was "okay, we'll pass along the interest to the proper people".

    AFTER THAT, when the requests kept coming in, they started to get more terse about it, and basically hinted that we should stop asking.


    I mean...what else are they supposed to do? They had gotten the message with the second request. They agreed to pass it on. It is evident to me that prior to the chat they had very little concept of the interest in this (they may even have heard of interest but didn't take it seriously, not realizing how deep it was).


    I am sure that, after that chat, they are taking the idea VERY seriously. Don't underestimate the importance of the Batman franchise to these guys. And don't be surprised if you see some movement.

    In the meantime, let's enjoy what they're giving us. Noone has to buy it if they don't want to. I DO understand the fustration of waiting, though, so in that regard I sympathize. I would buy box sets, too. IN A HEARTBEAT!

    Also ,along the same lines...According to Toonzone.net, Columbia House has sent letters to subscribers about them canceling orders for Batman TAS DVD's, which were superior to Warners...Hmm. It's possible that Warner's asked them to stop producing the discs.

    I got that letter cancelling my DVDs from C. House. Oh well. I will still buy these individual releases. Better to have than have not.

    A season set release of Justice League in 16x9 enhanced widescreen would be very nice, also! [​IMG]

    Whether I get the upcoming releases or not, depends on my cash stuation at that time. [​IMG]
