Fear and Loathing CC - Packaging Problems

Hey, I love the packaging on this baby...pure genius, but is anyone else having problems getting the DVD case out of the clear slipcover? I've had to wrestle this thing out of the slip, now I just open the opposite side and then pull it out.

Is it just me?

Yeah, I had that problem too. Don't worry, the plastic slip cover will stretch the more you slide the case in and out of it, mine slides out real smooth now.

Same here. When I first got it it was so hard to get it out of the slipcover that I was scared I was gonna crack it, now it comes out fairly easy.

I had the same problem. What I do is place my hands on the top and bottom, hold the thing sideways (open-side down), and I do two or three hard shakes enough to get it a little bit out so I can pull it out manually.

Just make sure you don't do that in public!
