Default What is Viva Metal Box™? The Comprehensive Guide

So there is a new kid on the block for Blu-ray (G2) Metal case packaging. Metal Box from Viva! Who of course also do blu-ray amaray cases:

http://www.viva-metalbox.com/mb.htm

The top image here shows a Steelbook vs Viva Metal Box DVD comparison:



Viva Metal Box also has embossing they like to do for their design. Sort of like a border around the cover art. It looks exactly the same with their new Lion King Blu-ray case, as seen in the images below (Thanks to shonuff6 for the Lion King image):

Where are you seeing reference to a "MetalPak"? I think you're referring to one and the same thing.

http://www.viva.com.hk/media.asp

Incredibles is tempting but Nemo sets a Disney/Pixar precedent of 3D theatrical re-release preceding a 3D BD release. I'd hate to spend the coin to get a copy of that only to see a 3D BD released, oh, a year later.

Where did that skinny UP come from? The only ones I've seen are the double-thick Jumbos which I eschewed....
