The ClassicFlix Restorations were a revelation, indeed. Now, if the company could get on board with some other major overhauls of Public Domain catalog like Topper, we'd really have some heady times ahead of us.

Topper and the two sequels look the best they have in years as does One Million BC Captain Fury too problem is the Roach Library is owned by numerous parties = ClassicFlix stunning work on the Roach Projects are TOPS but they are all from the same rights holders Laurel and Hardy are with a different firm I wish they do them but nope - VCI has the Toppers and they look the best they have in years but a major redo might not even be possible? I am just thrilled the Rascals look stunning and we are seeing Charley Chase, Thelma Todd Zasu Pitts etc!

I got my bonus disc order a couple days ago, but it arrived with the spine of the bonus disc torn, ripped through the plastic and the paper. Disc itself is fine.

I'm not understanding how the whole series fits into the empty Complete Collection empty box, though. There are only four nubs to hold the discs in the box I received. Did I get a defective box?

I think it's been discussed in a different thread, but I believe some of the hubs are intended to accommodate two discs stacked on top of each other.

I received mine, but haven't yet opened it to check it out. My order was mostly for the bonus disc. I'll probably not be using the empty box and will just leave my six volumes in their individual cases.

Yeah, I saw on another website that they tried to get 7-disc cases and couldn't, and that each spindle will hold two discs in the Complete Collection case.

The "top" two spindles (one on each side) are for stacking 2 discs each... They couldn't get 7 disc cases so used the 6 disc one from the official "Complete Collection" release and put the bonus disc in its own, separate, case (which is thicker than and doesn't match the cases the individual releases came in).

I'm quite disappointed with the 6 disc case. See details/images in my post here:

I found that my 6 disc case has a 1/4" tear/rip on the bottom of a spine edge effecting both the case and paper - and was packaged that way as the plastic shrink holding the 2 items together was completely intact. Don't know if I'll complain as I really don't plan to use that crappy case anyway - I'm looking at purchasing a proper 7 disc case instead.

Let us know how that goes searching for a replacement boxset case. I could certainly be interested in such myself... though I'm really tempted to just (re)buy the whole set instead since I otherwise still need the out-of-stock-til-whenever Vol 6 to complete the set...
