The Real Ghostbusters Complete Collection Cases

I just ordered the Real Ghostbusters complete collection, but something's got me worried. The description on Amazon says that the set has plastic amaray cases. That can't be correct, can it ? Because everywhere else says and shows steelbooks.

I think Steelbook is just if you buy season 1. I could be mistaken.

Maybe the Steelbooks in that complete collection were the Time life exclusive?? I know I have the steelbooks but I was dumb and figured these would be a limited release.

Re: The Real Ghostbusters Complete Collection Cases

Ive only seen the season 1 set available in a steelbook, havent seen it in an amaray. Heard they were releaseing season 2 in a steelbook either soon, or in the recent past. I had heard the complete set was steelbooks, and havent heard of them switching, but I honestly didnt think the series set was still available.

unless they changed the packaging, im confident you will receive the same time-life set with steelbooks.

The SteelBooks are no longer being produced.. they will come in plastic amaray cases.

Re: The Real Ghostbusters Complete Collection Cases

I just read a review of the plastic cases, and I'm actually hoping I got the plastic versions. They can be replaced, whereas the steelbooks can't. The art is brighter, and the underart (the art on the reverse side of the covers) can be pulled out and seen clearly, whereas the art on the steelbooks is obscured by the plastic of the trays.

Re: The Real Ghostbusters Complete Collection Cases

Today's my birthday and I got my set. Luckily, I got the plastic versions. That way, if they break, I can't easily get replacements. It's a great set, from what I've seen, but I haven't watched any of it yet. It will probably be a while, too, as I've got a huge pile of stuff going back a few months that I haven't watched ; the complete Fraggle Rock, several 4 movie collections, the complete Exorcist collection, several random movies, the complete A-Team, Rugrats season 1, and a bunch of other stuff.
