    I *really* want to know what smart guy at Paramount and/or the DVD distributors decided it would be oh-so-clever to use a huge long sticky strip of adhesive diagonally across the back cover of the DVD to stick a 'special Nickelodeon DVD Sampler' to the DVD case. Now I have a huge honking swath of sticky crap all over the back of my dvd that I can't see how to get off. Now I have to choose between a smudged and damaged back cover or a DVD that sticks to the one next to it on my shelf. BASTARDS! [​IMG]

    Mine came off easily.

    I just did a rolling motion with my finger.

    Anyway, I had a similar problem with Shrek when it was released. So, I can sympathize with you.

    This isn't coming off like that with your finger Joe, unfortunately. I've had a few previously that were like that, but here I'm pucked unless the old tricks like nail polish remover and whatever work.

    I had the same problem (bought it at BB) and had to resort to plenty of Goo-Gone.

    It could have been packaged a little better knowing that over 50% of DVD buyers are collectors.

    Lighter fluid works wonders, and it's cheap.

    Where is the shrink wrap applied? I assume at the pressing station, so why can't they use only a mild adhesive, something like what a Post-It has and then shrink wrap the thing. The wrap will hold it in place well enough. This whole using industrial strength bonding agents directly on the case is ridiculous.

    Still cannot believe I didn't get it. Anyone else purchase from Wal mart and not get it?
    On a side note, I really like the yello keep case![​IMG]

    I thought you all were venting because of the picture. Too much EE and even compression artifacts in some scenes. Its no Toy Story transfer, but it could have been.

    Hey I bought mine at Best Buy but didn't get the free DVD sampler. It was just the keep case and the movie inside. Anyone else buy theirs at BB and didn't get the sampler disc with it?

    Troy,

    My Best Buy didn't have the ones with the sampler on the shelves. Only the plain ones were on the shelf. The ones with the bonus disc were in the cardboard display thing. And I had to hunt around in there to find one with the sampler.

    I will say I greatly appriciate Paramount giving the CD-ROMs with the Star Trek sets. It's a great little bonus
    Sure would like to know what the happy item is for those who buy all 7. If it's a limited time only, and it's that voice activated wall switch I'll be going nuts [​IMG]

    Target had another deal with this disc, it came with a free book if you bought it there. I work for a retailer that isn't giving anything away with this disc (gasp!) so I bought it at Best Buy just to get the extra disc. Mine was stuck on with 4 circular globs of rubber-cement stuff that came right off with no problem.
