Remember when Fox reissued a series of sci-fi films in 2-disc "Collector's Edition" DVDs with large numbers on the bottom of the spines? I was wondering if anyone knew the complete list, I haven't been able to find it.

Here's a list of the ones I have:

10. Alien
11. Aliens
12. Alien 3
13. Alien Resurrection
20. The Fly (Cronenberg)
23. Alien Vs. Predator

I know the Collectors Editions of Planet of the Apes & Predator had numbers too, but I no longer have those for reference.

There are several threads on this (some which didn't come up in a search, but were linked in a thread that did). I think this one has the most complete list: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/437979-fox-collector-dvd-spine-numbers.html

I always found it odd that the Predator 2 CE never was numbered. Predator & AVP have them. I guess Fox just stopped giving a shit at some point.

Btw, I don't see any numbers on my Fight Club or Omen CE's.

Technically, I never really gave a shit either. It was always an afterthought lingering in my mind. "What the hell are these supposed to be part of?!" Since I only saw the numbers on sci-fi DVDs, I thought it was a sci-fi thing. Except I never thought they released that many sci-fi DVDs.

Was Fox trying to mimic Criterion (or Code Red) collectability?

They were chasing Criterion the way Facebook used to chase Twitter
