The POTC and Cars 2 have 5 discs, they both include the extras disc not included in the standard amaray Blu-ray combo. Disney shafting the non-3D buyer.

Anybody else surprised that Cars 2 is 5 disks? I thought that it was supposed to be 3.

Gotta admit, these metal boxes are now my favorite. Before these MB's, I had no preference between SB's or IP's, but IMHO, these metal boxes are the best of the lot. Everyone is embossed, and the inside and outside artwork is amazing. It was also very wise of the manufacture to include the unique plastic lining located where the 2 sides meet. This is where paint chips usually occur because of metal hitting metal.

I've been saying that on my last 2 videos. The fit and finish is amazing except for the poor quality control on the Incredibles. I love the plastic on the opening side. Fingernails can scratch paint off easily. Glad Disney found this company. it`ll never be a SteelBook, but at least it`s well put together.

As I said before, I think its better than a steelbook. Its got a few features that are just better. For instance, on the inside, it has an extra plastic bar to better align any inserts. On the 5 disc releases, its got a spindle on both sides, and not just 1 side like the steelbook. Its a great mystery to me why an SB only has spindle on 1 side, and not both. Perhaps its due to the fact that no non Canadian release (to my knowledge) has ever exceeded 3 disks. These MB's also has 2 large clips to properly hold the digital copy + any inserts. These clips are a hit & miss with SB's. If you look at the old Disney SB's like Snow White & Sleeping Beauty, they don't have these clips. Every time you open these up, the inserts go flying out. I also prefer the look of the inside spine of the MB's over the SB's. Its got a metal "hinged" look to it, as opposed to the SB's "creased" look. Not to mention that in the long run, there will be less knicks and scratches, due to the proper placement of plastic in key areas, as you've mentioned.

I also like the Metal Boxes. I quite possibly prefer them over SteelBooks. SteelBook is an old design. It's about time someone improved on it, IMO.

I was aware of the BAMBI quality control issues, but what are the quality control issues with THE INCREDIBLES?

Competition is good. I just would like to see Disney stick with one format for two years in a row for conformity purposes.

I haven't had issues with dents in any of them, most of the problems are paint scratches, but no dents.

I checked my copy but could find any paint missing spot. Is this spot located in a specific area of the steel?

I'm not afraid of saying that MB's are better than SB's. I call it as it is, straight down the middle. I'm not one of those guys who thinks that SB's are the best there is, the best there was, and the best there will ever be. I like to see things evolve. As for all the complaints about dents and scratches. I think its because some of these guys are late commers. The people that got there early already sorted through the lot, picking out the best ones. I never had any trouble with quality issues, not on those ones that I've opened anyways.

I inspected about 20 of them and didn't notice any missing spots of paint. What does it look like?

Check your BAMBIs for print alignment.

About a third of the copies I saw in-store had the print out of alignment with the embossing.

Check the front cover where it says "Diamond Edition" to make sure that the raised parts are white. Some of them are pretty horrible when it messes up.

After you check that, check the four corners as well. It is less obvious with graphics (pictures) than with text.

Still, when it is bad, it can be pretty bad. I returned about 5 copies to the store because of this.

Nope, just double checked. Alignments are in place, nothing wrong with the fonts. I guess I'm just lucky. But then again, I do go extremely early, and usually get first dibs. I check each one very thoroughly to make sure that I get a perfect one. Now, thats not to say that all my sealed copies are mint. From what I can see, they are all mint. But underneath the back cover?, sorry, no x-ray vision.

LATT will be getting a metal treatment as per the FutureShop forums. I believe August was stated as the release date.
