    I saw the commercial for it yesterday, it's a two disc edition. What's it going to have that we don't already have on the current ones?

    A trailer for MIB2 and that's it.

    Otherwise, it's supposed to be exactly like the limited edition...in a different box.

    Thanks David. That really sucks, they'll have people thinking that it has more extra's and making them pay 20 bucks for a trailer!?

    No thanks.

    They're just hoping to sell some DVD's prior to the new film. It doesn't suck if you read the box and get info from HTF![​IMG]

    At least for those of us who haven't bought the two disc set yet (I almost did today), this looks to have better packaging than the solid black box.

    Scott, the answer is "to put the MIB2 trailer on it". [​IMG]

    It's also cheaper than the LE.

    For those who never picked up the LE, they just have to decide if they want to pay more for a cardboard box, or pay less for one in a sturdy plastic box.

    The Deluxe Edition does not have the conceptual art one-sheet that was included with the Limited Edition. Also, the booklet is a little different.

    There is concept art in the booklet that comes with the Deluxe Edition. I dunno if it's the same that is in the LE, I'd need to check later.

    I was talking about a one-sheet...not the art in the booklet. The Limited Edition came with a folded "poster" with conceptual art by Rick Baker. Some of these conceptual art one-sheets were autographed by Baker and Barry Sonnenfeld.

    I thought the term one-sheet referred specifically to 27-by-41 movie posters. Does it apply to the little "poster" included in the MIB LE?

    I always used one-sheet to signify any size poster included with a DVD package. It is supposed to only mean 27x41 posters. I guess we change it to conceptual art insert...but that would be confusing...

    Let's just say that the Limited Edition has two inserts and "unique" packaging. The Deluxe Edition only has a booklet.
