I make my own DVDs, usually from movies shown on TCM. Virtually every movie ever made has the original poster and lobby cards on line. I print these. If you don’t like the cover for a blu ray etc., it takes 5 minutes to print your own, and just slip it in under the plastic.

Hopefully Amazon will get it to customers on release day since The email I just got from Warner Bros. featured Amazon in it's marketing telling people to pre-order it from Amazon now.

I actually like both covers and I have no doubt the one with Dorothy in a field of flowers was meant to be very vivid and to leap off the cover. What is more important is the quality of the video transfer and the audio quality which could be mono or even stereo as long as it sounds good. If they create a modern mix I do not care but they should at least give us the original audio mix as well. I am really looking forward to adding this new release to my last blu-ray edition! I agree this is to important for WB to screw up and while it is not impossible for that to happen I honestly do not see that happening! I see another pristine transfer like WB did with 2001! I have no doubt that 4K supporters will be rewarded by a awesome transfer by WB on this super classic!

You'll be happy with this 4K disc. I was able to watch the entire movie in 4K/Dolby Vision on iTunes when it was briefly available before being pulled and it looked and sound great.

Did they refund your money or give you a credit?

My favorite.
That DVD set also has the best visual quality version of the 1925 silent feature, to date.

As for the upcoming 4K disc, this may go on my Christmas wish list, despite not being at all equipped for 4K, along with IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)! What fantastic news that release announcement is! It's been a long time coming! :)

CHEERS! :)
