    It may sound silly, but the packaging on my Memento: LE is starting to go. The paper clip has long since broke (kinda disappointing) and the outer cover is startign to fall apart. I dont like to use other cases to replace ones like this, and I would like kto keep it, so is their a chance to get a replacement somehow from Sony? I'm not sure if they do it, but does anyone have any ideas?

    Also, are their studios that offer replacement packaging for their titles? Some of my others are starting to lose their luster as well. Thanks [​IMG]

    How limited is this LE... I still see them around and have it on my want list but not at high priority.

    Should I pick this up before it dissapears or will it be around for awhile?

    Its still around at a few places I have seen. It goes for around $20-25, but can be found used or even new at many sites online. I love this film and the DVD (few do, mostly do to the extras being so difficult) but I really want to keep it in good shape to hold up for a long time.

    That is the most idiotic packaging and menu layout in the history of DVD.

    I want to watch a $%#@ movie, not play a Myst adventure game!

    Its a great set, but the outer slipcover is way too tight. After I managed to get the digipak inside out, I now only push it about halfway back in. To push it all the way back in each time would wear out this package very quickly.

    PS - Douglas Bailey made a great little booklet for printing that explained how to get to all the extras. If you have this set, it is essential or you will go insane looking for the extras!

    considering you can get this for around 25 bucks (i think?) you're probably just better off getting a new dvd.

    heck, by the time you invest all the money (and more importantly ... your time) - you'll have easily exceeded 25 bucks. [​IMG]

    I was gonna say the same thing. Buy a new DVD to keep on the shelf, and when you want to watch it watch the old, ragged case one.

    This is one of three titles I keep permanently in replacement packaging: a double alpha case with alternative cover art.

    The other two are David Lynch's Eraserhead and Short Films BTW.
