Default Blu-ray Slipcover Discussion Thread Part One (Archived)

wish they would do away with them, all they do is take up more space and it takes away from the uniformity of blu-ray collections...I've taken mine off and put them in a drawer.

I'm pretty indifferent. Some are nice, like the lenticular ones (Watchmen) or ones that end up being part of the cover art (Transformers). I'll buy the movie/tv season regardless though.

Love them. If a movie comes with one I must inspect it to make sure its in perfect condition.

I NEED them for all Disney/Pixar films. Other than that, it doesn't really matter much to me.

I love slip covers. I'm really picky about the condition of them as well. If I'm purchasing a blu ray and it has a slipcover I will spend several minutes scanning each one over to find the best conditioned slip cover.

Slipcovers are the best. The best slipcover for TL would be the Watchmen slipcover

I used to be all for slip-covers for DVD's, but with my Blu-Ray's I really don't like them.

For some reason I have severe OCD when it comes to organizing my Blu-Ray collection, and all the slip-covers just stick out like a sore thumb as most of mine are slip-cover free.

Default does Amazon still ship slipcovers?

i'm not a huge fan of slipcovers but on certain stuff i like to have them, mainly TV series and box sets. but anyhow the last 3 movies i've bought from Amazon in the past weeks that came with slipcovers were not included. they were Rocknrolla, Ghostbusters and most recently Pride & Glory.

just curious if anyone else has been receiving slipcovers when ordering from Amazon?

Slipcovers are usually limited to 1st pressing of the release or something along those lines but anyways you can still get them with Amazon just you would need to pick them up ASAP especially with the more popular titles.

LOL if you can afford shipping and you get one without one that should have one, I say send it back and get one that has one. Did that confuse anyone else?
RIP Navster, you were someone I considered a friend and BD.com will always remember you.
