Superbit Slipcovers

I'm wondering what the policy is for slipcovers for superbits. For example, I recently ordered Gattaca SB and it came without a slipcover, but I distinctly remembered seeing it a while back with a slipcover. I've seen the same thing for Dracula SB. I thought that maybe the new printings do not include a slipcover anymore, but I noticed that the last 4 new superbits that came out included slipcovers.

Anyone have any information on this?

Thanks

Tarek

i think it's just random..i've seen some of the newer ones with and without them. Doesn't seem to be any explanation as to why some don't have them..Gattaca seems to be one that frequently doesn't have one

It's only the first pressings of Gattaca & Bram Stoker's Dracula that didn't have the slipcovers. All the other ones have them, but with 2 different styles of slipcovers.

Is it possible to get them to send you a slipcover?

Is there a site that talks about the multiple slipcovers?

Well, Artisan sent me the keepcase to the UNRATED Basic Instinct so I could replace that terrible ice pick package. I would hope Columbia Tri Star has enough class to do so, as well.

Basically when the first 5 were released, (Air Force One, Johnny Mneumonic, Crouching Tiger, Desperado, and Fifth Element) were originally released in what looked exactly like their original cover art (the only difference being the back had the Superbit info on it) and they were wrapped by a cheap, paper full slip cover. Then Gattaca and Dracula came out with just a silver keep case. After that the 3rd wave came out with the current hard cardboard half slip cover. This must've been a hit, because after that all the future releases (not including Panic Room) have come out like this. And Columbia went back and redid all of the previous ones like this. Seems like you got one of the original releases. How do I know all this? I guess you can say I have one of those memories. I'm just kinda pissed off that it seems like they're going away from this. Charlie's Angels looks like it has a black cover, and Adaptation and Punch Drunk Love appear to not follow the slipcover routine.

Yes, someone do tell; I'm getting a slipcase-less Gattaca and would love to get them to mail me one as well if possible.

I throw away the slip-covers. Maybe if they had different art than what's on the actual cover, but I don't like cheap cardboard snapper cases and don't like cheap cardboard covers on my keepcases either. :-p

How did you contact them to get the BI keepcase? I e-mailed them about it but have heard nothing.

I too hate the ice pick case.

(DVD Polizei takes out Ice Pick and raises it over his head)

What? You don't like the ice-pick case?
