    Does anyone know what the BTTF packaging will consist of? I have heard that it will be similar to the Die Hard UE set, i.e., a cardboard box with the DVD's in individual keepcases, or a fold out. I hope that it includes the keepcases. I hate the fold-out that E.T. came in. Don't want another one of those.

    The R1 case will essentially be like a double alpha, but with a third "compartment" to accomodate all three movies. While I haven't seen it myself, I have heard that the 3-disc "Brotherhood of the Wolf" was released using this same type of case, although the "BTTF" case will be molded in blue plastic.

    If it's a Universal special edition, you can count on some crap cardboard design that will be damaged by the time you buy it at retail, and which won't stay closed. Add a half dozen very sticky security strips and you're all set. I haven't seen it so I could be wrong.

    There's no cardboard at all, if it's a Triple Alpha keepcase, as all artwork has thus far shown.

    I like the triple Alphas. Nice and neat. Takes up little room. I see that 7 disc capacity keep cases are produced. Could come in handy for certain TV shows etc.
    God knows what Fox/Luacasfilm will use for Star Wars IV-V-VI...
    The region 2 boxed set of Curse Of Frank, Horror Of Drac, The Mummy is neat and stylish. It is a cardboard clamcase with triple fold-out press-to-release holders. Grrreat. [​IMG]
    Packaging is an important factor in a quality DVD edition of a great film. It's a shame when the transfer of a great is great, the extras are great, but the packaging is cheap, and naff and does not reflect the spirit of the film. Criterion rarely get it wrong. But Columbia...

    Is the box wider than a double keepcase? I was hoping for a box with 3 single keepcases in the box because I still don't know if I want to keep the complete set. BTTF1 is really the only one I wanted.

    Personally I think the packaging on the r1 release of this set is horrid looking. Although the DVDs themselves should be good.

    The blue keepcase they're using is just too damn bright. They should've used a darker blue. LOTR came in a dark green keepcase and I have no problem with that. THe grinch green is a bit too colorful IMO. Couldn't they have chosen something that wasn't this tacky?

    It would have been cool if they had gone with a custom 3-disc digipak (is that what you call those great gatefold cases?), instead of a 3-disc Feels-like-the-disc-is-going-to-snap-in-two-when-you-try-to-take-it-out...er, I mean Alpha. I don't really care, but I just don't really like Alphas.

    [​IMG] I can't believe people worry about the COLOR of the case/art as long as no more ET 2 disc cases are used I'm happy, it could be "baby-s**t" yellow for all I care, just MHO of course.

    I don't care so much about the color as I am the sturdiness. I'm pretty nice to my discs, but a sturdy case is what I'm all about, whether blue or purple.

    They should have used black instead of blue for the packaging. It would have looked sweet and classy.
