At least they generally look the same!

Agreed. This is a much bigger difference IMHO.

Oh well, it's the content that matters, but I prefer the fatter cases which shows up nicely on the shelf.

Not especially. There's a lack of consistency in the size and position of the artwork on the spines.

I wonder if the Best Buy exclusive packaging will just be a slipcover, too...

Maybe they're making the package smaller for those that hated season 6 to buy it anyway and just pretend it isn't there.

Yea, but the cases are the same size. The spines not being exactly the same would be way too OCD for me to complain about.

My review copy came in..

Not happy about how the Seasons match. It's the last one - couldn't they just make it thick for at least the first batch?

Anyone seen the Best Buy version yet? According to the ad (seen here) it says "collectible packaging." Maybe there's hope that it's appropriately sized? It's really hard to tell from the ad, but the picture looks like it could be thicker.

That secret disc is pretty awesome, but the packaging for the episode discs is awful.

Awesome! I hope the secret disc isn't limited in any way, this looks like a pretty expensive set to produce.

I wonder if that secret disc is simply the Complete Set bonus disc or something that hasn't been announced at all...

Man, I just want the bonus disc and not all that other junk. It's too bad it's not available as a mail in offer for those of us who already own all the seasons.

Wow. What a bunch of garbage. Did anyone else like the outermost box more than any of the trash contained within?

It's Cuse and Lindoff admiting they made it up as they went along and what suckers we've been thinking we were actually going to get answers.

I agree (about the disc packaging). I love how studios like to throw us complete series sets of our favorite shows and all, but I despise how they cheapen the packaging and put the discs in cardboard, rather than something with a plastic hub.

The box is cool, but the actual discs in cardboard sleeves is lame. Plus it wouldn't even fit on my shelf. Pass.

The R2 set looks much better at packaging the discs. Seems like they always have the better designed boxed sets.

Hopefully they'll re-release the set in a box similar to what Universal did with Battlestar Galactica.

Me! It looked classy and you could put it on the shelf! The damn set inside needs to sit on a table or something to be properly looked at. Sticking to the regular season sets, although I'm mortified that they had to [email protected]#k with the spine size on the last set.

Looks like another complete series box set that people will end up having to return due to scratched discs.

Maybe for the DVD version, but not the BD....the scratch-resistant coating is way too tough to allow any scratches just due to some measly cardboard...
