I've always disliked the snappers because adjacent cases tend to hang up on the snapper part of the case when I'm returning them to the shelf, and because the cover is glued to the disc hub. However, I still have a couple dozen WB snapper cases left, most of which I'd like to retire for new Blu-rays.

I don't know where you get your snappers but my covers are not "glued to the disc hub" at all. The plastic bit is quite easy to replace (although I have no idea where you'd purchase replacements). I've done it with a few that got damaged in shipment - purchased a real cheap snapper and swapped the plastic disc hub/holder.

The top and bottom pieces simply snap off. The top image is with the plastic insert completely removed and the bottom is a close up of the top hold-down snapped up/open.

It's "digibooks" which are truly horrible with the disc trays glued to the book and can't be replaced or repaired if damaged.

Thanks. Not glued then, but if the plastic bit is not readily replaceable (I'm not buying another DVD just to scavenge the box) then almost as bad as glued on.

I agree that snappers are by no means the worst disc packaging.

I still have a ton of Warner Bros. snapper DVDs (and discs from other studios, as well, which used them such as HBO).

It’s a reprint of the previous version put out by Warner in a digibook, but in a regular case without the book. I believe it had all of the special features from the DVD but doesn’t have anything new that was created just for BD.

Glad to know that. Just ordered the Warner Archive version. So now it's just three more to go! (Don't know why those titles, "Arsenic And Old Lace", "Mister Roberts" and "Butterfield 8" have never made it)

I’m hoping Mister Roberts is next - it appears that HBO Max is getting a brand new transfer, which has been the tip off for some other recent WA announcements.

That's great news. This was one of the very first titles on DVD I think I ever got and it's been overdue for upgrade!

The only snapper I have left is the theatrical version of Friday and that’s only because the god awful director’s cut is the only version available on Blu-ray.
