    I just saw the actual cover art of the Die Another Day DVD. Once you slide it out of it's cardboard case, like Beauty and the Beast SE, THE SPINE DOES NOT MATCH UP TO THE OTHER BOND DVD'S! It looks horrible! I remember when the World is Not Enough came out an it fit in perfectly in the box sets. What happened MGM?

    I keep getting the thought that MGM will try to have me buying the 20 or so DVD's again for new cover art to match Die Another Day!

    Request: Can someone do a custom Die Another Day cover art to match the Bond sets?

    I don't think they ruined your collection. If you want uniformity, than custom art is the way to go. It would have been nice to have uniformity with this title, but MGM doesn't OWE it to us.

    I disagree John. I do believe they owe us since they released the box sets with the same cover art on 2 occasions. They may not have been the best cover art, but it did look good with the matching spines. Die Another Day comes with cardboard cover for the store display. Why couldn't they have come up with a same cover art pattern since it is hidden inside the cardboard anyway.

    It doesn't really surprise me considering that it's a MGM release. (See sticky Remo thread)

    It does not matter to me, I use custom covers for almost all my Bond DVDs. I am planning on using a custom one of the DAD teaser poster with the Beretta on the ice.

    I thought Die Another Day had a cover on the other side that would match the other Bond discs when reversed?

    It could match the new Bond remastered DVDs that are rumored to be in the works...

    Has anyone ever thought of making the spine white-on-black for all their DVDs? I think that would look very sleek - if you're into sleek.

    I'm a 'sleek' kinda person. [​IMG]

    Personally, I'm waiting on Zinema to create one of his awesome covers for Die Another Day. Otherwise I could be in trouble, seein' as my entire Bond collection uses his covers. [​IMG]

    This is another reason why I'm glad I just organize all my titles by chronological release date so I never have to worry about the spines for a series of films matching. [​IMG]

    Does "anal retentive" have a hyphen in it?

    Zinema will be doing a cover for the new bond title. It's not online yet, but in the meantime, go download his other fabulous covers on dvdcoverart.com.

    "Does "anal retentive" have a hyphen in it?"

    That is a very good question. I'll research this and get back to you. [​IMG]

    Claiming that a studio "ruined" your collection just because the spines don't match is a little nuts. I understand your plight, but let's tone down the hyperbole.


    "Ruined my collection" would fit if they say attached an incendiary device to your Die Another Day set that caused it and all your other Bond discs to burst into flames.

    Mismatching spines falls more into the "inconvenince" category.

    Uniformity, guys? For crying out loud my Goldeneye is in a snapper case.
