Default Movie has no slipcover. Do you buy it?

I was at the local Walmart and I saw they had spider-man homecoming on 4k blu-ray which I don't have yet and every 4k movie I own has a slipcover or is a store exclusive. So if it had a slipcover in store I would have bought it but it did not so I chose not to is anyone else like this?

Do you go on ebay for a movie with a slip?

Personally, I could take or leave slipcovers on movies. They look nice, but the amount of space they take up on a shelf accumulates, and I don’t have that much space at the moment.

I do my best to buy movies with a slipcover. Iíve been fortunate that when I canít to either have a member sell or make me one. What is strange is, I wasnít this obsessive about this with DVDs and have sadly, passed on this sickness to my son. My wife doesnít get it, but there are few things she does I donít get

To be honest, Iím kind of ďoverĒ slipcovers, because they usually just have the same cover and info on the front and back as the regular cover.

Iíve gone ďsliplessĒ on my DVD shelf. It makes grabbing a disc easier since you donít have to take the slip off, AND it looks a lot more uniform when none of them have a slip on them.

The ones I have are stored in a box in my closet because I just havenít been able to bring myself to get rid of them completely lol.

I don't have any use for slipcovers. The only things that interest me are the quality of the movie, video and audio, and the price.

Why does it feel like members seem to turn their noses up when it comes to slipcovers around here? How is this different than digibooks, steelbooks and other exclusive collectible packaging? Iím about to order a Shazam digibook from overseas because I want my DCEU to be uniformed

I toss the slipcovers too. Booklets and posters for the most part get tossed too, though I did keep a few.

I always get rid of slip covers, I find them to be unnecessary.

I think I speak for some when I say F slipcovers. They are waste of cardboard.

I love slips. Half the fun is taking them off. I take my girlfriend's slips off all the time.

I won't refuse to buy a movie because it lacks a slipcover, but I do like them and have bought ones that my movies are missing. The only movies I sort of insist on having a cover for are the Disney and Pixar main series ones.

I was really happy when I managed to track down a slipcover for this movie:



But other than that, if it's a super rare cover like the Disney Atlantis one (that supposedly sells in the 100s ) no, I can do without.

I kinda like them. I have gone out of my way to get a copy with one. I'm rather annoyed that my copy of Star Wars Rebels Season 4 doesn't have one (because the other seasons do). But ultimately it's not worth worrying about too much.
