Huh, that is weird. I ordered the Bolt DVD a few months ago, and the first time it came it had a slipcover, but the postal service chewed it up, so I sent it back and the second copy still had a slipcover also.

I read on another forum that you can actually order a slipcover from Disney. I need to find link.

It may bother me slightly that my copy doesn't match my other Disney titles on the shelf but the day I pay for ONLY a slipcover is the day I've gone over the deep end with my collecting habits.

Thanks for the offer though. Its allowed me to find the line I shouldn't cross in my collecting craziness.

Yup!! Well at my Costco they are. I did notice they did have some blus on the shelf but they were the $8 blus. The more expensive blus you have to go got the register and get it from an employee.

You're missing the Sony Blu-ray essentials slipcover for MIB.

My Costco often has certain titles that you have to get at the register. Usually it's just the brand new releases. They don't put the slipcovers out though. They put actual empty Blu-ray cases with a custom-printed cover that includes a "bring case to register" graphic on it.

I remember when the Beeteljuice Blu-ray came out. I can still see the slipcovers in my head on the shelf at Target. Should've picked a bunch up.

Re: these people are obsessed with slipcovers

Seriously..who the fuck buys that many Men In Black (or any movie) slipcovers? Those don't even qualify as different, three of them are the exact same thing with different border. I guess I just don't get it, I can kind of see some people maybe liking slipcovers but to buy multiple just seems odd.

I get really choked up whenever I think about all the slipcovers that were ruined by Hurricane Katrina.
