While I like the digibook it does stick out to a point that during a quick scan of my shelves you don't see Guardians of the Galaxy, which is annoying.

The digibook is ok. I just wanted the film day 1 so I didn't have a pick of how it was packaged.

I love digibooks, but I think this digibook is horrible because of how thin it is. They could have at least had the disc go into a tray and not a sleeve. Sleeves are cheap.

I agree. I mean, I like the digibook don't get me wrong, but there's really nothing to it to be honest. I also think that it the disc should have went into a tray and not a sleeve. It's more likely to get scratched in the sleeve vs a tray. If the digibook would have been like a Warner's digibook, now that would have been awesome!!

You know what would be an awesome design for a digibook. Front cover is the original poster. Back cover is a style B poster or a foreign one. The booklet pages inside would have reprints of the original lobby cards or press booklet with maybe a written introduction by the filmmaker. Now that would be a digibook worth buying. Oh and definitely put the disc in a plastic tray.

Sleeve shouldn't scratch it and even if it did a little BDs are much more durable than DVDs, so it shouldn't be an issue. The booklet is actually nice, it's just too thin and looks odd on the shelf. I am still glad I have it though.

This is definitely the worse looking, thin, cheap looking "digipack" out there.

I like it. I actually enjoy a little bit of variety in the cases, as long as they don't go crazy with the dimensions.

I was a little disappointed by how slim the digibook was, but then I mailed it to John Carpenter to sign, and now I like it just fine.

Sent to his office with a SASE:

How much did it cost you to get autographed?

Postage both ways would be my guess. Carpenter is known to sign all things mailed to him, as long as they include return postage. He doesn't charge extra like at conventions.

Every time I see this thread bumped I keep thinking that the original Halloween will be released as a standalone Blu-Ray with the mono soundtrack finally fixed.

You're right. The sleeve shouldn't scratch it because of the smooth paper, but I still would have preferred a disc tray with hub.

Yes, just postage, and maybe 4-5 weeks.
