DVDs with unique packaging

Over the years I've become more and more attached to buying DVD sets with unique packaging. Part of this being I love to have my DVDs on display near my projector area, the other simply because of my collecting drive that I've had since I was 5 years old collecting G.I. Joes

I mentioned my quest for limited edition packaged DVDs in the DVD Exchange thread a while back, but I know there's some that are just the normal packaging and I thought it would helpful to the collectors like me to create a list of them. There is a thread about limited edition dvds, but it's out of date and doesn't have any pictures

I will start this off with the few gift sets/unique packaged DVDs I have:

We could split them up by type and then by Region maybe?

Thanks, yeah I really do want the end all release list. Now that I've got a pretty good job and money to spend I'd like to have a list that I could build a wish list off of

So if you could delete your posts that would great!

As a thread keeper who has run into the long post editing problem, here is a tidbit of advice.

If you're really going to try to do this, go ahead and grab the first 4 or so posts in the thread. Because down the road, if you get close to complete, the list won't fit into one post, and it will look a lot better to have them in some order at the top. I'll delete my posts if you go thru with this.

Also, there is already a steelbook thread.
All right, there you go, first three posts are yours for future buffer space. Good luck.

I'll add titles I see you're missing when I get a chance.

A recent arrival for me, the Land of the Giants compete Series boxset. Also, the new Family Guy 5 set at Target.

If you're going to include slipcovers, there is an entire thread by The Valeyard with a definitive list of all store exclusive and lenticular packaging and the like.

And again, there is also a steelbook thread with tons of entries.

Planet of the Apes complete set in monkey head
