any one baught rocky 2 disc set from columbia house ?

hi every one i have a question last friday i made an order on columbiahouse. I baught 3 movies meanstreets, the shawnshank redemption, and the rocky 2 disc collectors edition. Today i recieved my package i noticed when i was opening the rocky dvd it was wrapped out side of the outer slip case and when i pulled the case out i noticed that the regular case wasnt wrapped, i just opened it. I was wondering if anyone recieved their dvd this away ? just the outer part was wrapped but not the regular dvd case it was unwrapped. Also another thing there was supposed to be a 40 page booklet inside the case and that didnt come did anyone who ordered this dvd from columbia house had the same thing happend. what was inside the case was the 2 discs and a orderfrom to order rocky action figures or sculpters and other rocky merchandises. have a nice day

i got it about a month ago and mine had the booklet but i can't recall whether or not it was wrapped around the slipcase or the case itself.

I got this two weeks ago. There's supposed to be a 60-page booklet with this? I don't see where it would fit... mine just had an insert for some Rocky action figures or something. Also, why would they double wrap this? Mine just had the outer wrap over the whole package.

All i got was the wrapped slipcase with the movie and order form inside. I didn't know anything about a booklet it was supposed to have. Bummer.....

I read a review on here about the 2 disc set and it mention somthing about a 40 page or 60 page booklet that comes with the dvd set. The booklet is about a book about rocky i guess. The reaso i ask cause mine didnt come with the booklet. take care

There's no book mentioned in the thorough review at DVD Verdict:

I'd call the book a rumor at this point.

Also included inside the case is a rather nifty little booklet, which is actually a pocket-sizes excerpt from a new book called Rocky: The Ultimate Guide. Neat.

theres a link to the review check it out.

I orderd this back in December '06 and the booklet was in the slipcase but outside the case. I remember trying to close the case with the booklet inside and couldn't do it. I'd call or contact CS anout this. They did the same thing to me with Jaws 30th.

Hmm... I wonder if copies of it that are still being pressed have the booklet in them? Sucks to have an incomplete DVD (but good to know at the same time in case I was planning to trade it to someone at some point in the future).
