Any chance of a Star Trek Motion Picture Collection Slipcase Offer?

So I finally get Star Trek: Nemesis Collector's Edition to complete my 10 movie Star Trek set.
But I want the slipcase that they include with the Complete collection that they are selling.
Does anyone know if Paramount is offering the chance to buy the slipcase for those that purchased each movie as they came out?
Just like New Line did with the Lord Of The Rings extended editions?
Or even some custom case someone online is selling?
Thanks

I would like to get one that would fit ST:TMP thru Generations.

Unlikely.

Not sure if any of these will help you (and they're a bit pricey), but you might want to check here:

I would'nt hold out for a slipcase from Paramount. If they did come up with it I',m sure you'd have to re-re-buy the entire movie collection to get it. Those Paul Champagne cases look pretty cool though. I'm not sure if it's worth $60 for two but they really look great.

Paramount did release the slipcase separately back when they released the film series (to that point) box set on laserdisc.

Yep, I had that LD slipcase. If I recall, they released it to retail for like $10 or something... I ordered it from Ken Cranes back in the day. It was a pretty nice slipcover. Very classy.

They'd have to do something very well-constructed to hold this current set. 20 DVDs+10 cases is pretty heavy.

They make really nice customs slip cases for Star Wars, Star Trek, LOTR, etc.

The whole set *with the outer box* is on sale at my local Costco right now. I'd agree with the others that, being Paramount, they are unlikely to give a hoot about making the customers happy who bought them along the way... They're crappy at manufacturing, marrketing and distribrution in general, and not at all customer-service friendly.

I tell you, seeing that display of his with the five captains for all the series almost makes me want to splurge on the whole mess of them.

Thanks for the Rixgrafix tip, I was looking for another place to find custom covers & boxes-they're very well-done & a nice alternative to Paul Champagne.
