    Well, I have spent many hours, and I have made my first custom cover: the A&E Space 1999 DVDs. I am practically finished with them. They are designed for a 4 disc alpha case, so each season will fit in two of them (and take up just slightly more than half the space.)
    Here is a preview of the first cover. (72 dpi)
    LoRes Picture Case 1
    I am still working on the image on the front for the second box, and I am also waiting for the last 2 sets to arrive so I can add the special features to them. Let me know what you think, and I'll get the final versions done and posted soon!
    Jimmy!

    I like that. I've recently begun to collect these sets, too. It's been years and years since I've seen Space: 1999 until the DVD's came out, now I'm enjoying this show just as much as I did in the 70's

    I only remember watching this show as a kid. And I know an expolosion knocks it out of orbit with Earth. But, how do they explain how they get to different planets every week???

    I have the previews of the first three covers done now.
    LoRes Picture Case 1 (slightly modified to include the "1" on the front cover)
    LoRes Picture Case 2
    LoRes Picture Case 3
    Please let me know if there are any errors or things that need correcting. I've seen them a million times and I think I've become immune to them.
    Jimmy!

    Nice work, Jimmy!

    Let me know when you have Hi-res versions available and I'll be glad to make the switch!

    Thanks, Ric. That's high praise coming from you. [​IMG]
    I've actually got high-res versions ready now, but I want to wait for the final 2 sets before I commit the first set of Year 2 the way it is. (The back of Set 2, Year 1 has several episodes whose trailers are not in the trailer gallery, and there are asterisks denoting that. Hopefully all the episodes in the second season will be represented, but I want to be sure.)
    When Matt's back, I'll send him the covers to host. (But if you want one early, drop me a line.)
    Jimmy!

    Well, it took a while, but I have sent in the covers for Year One to matt at DVDCoverArt.com, and he has posted them.

    Year Two still coming soon...

    Jimmy!
