Slipcovers

I received my order from Amazon today with my Bond movies and some extras.
Night @the museum no slipcover
Ice age- no slipcover
windtalkers- no slipcover
live free and die hard- no slipcover
For your eyes only- no slipcover
Thunderball - slipcover movie cash on slip cover
From Russia with love- slipcover movie cash on slip cover


Should these movies all have slip covers and should I cal amazon and ask for a replacement??

Slipcovers are usually a limited thing. You snooze, you looze.

They shipped a factory sealed copy to you and that ends their order fulfillment. Slipcovers usually have a limited production time and most buyers just throw them away as extraneous packaging. If you must have a slipcover then don't rely on the internet- go to a B&M store and buy one.
Also, better to discuss your subject in this forum.

Who throws slipcovers away?

I go out of my way to find one and will pay extra for a slipcover.

I've thrown away more of those things than I can count. I only keep them if the artwork is different from what's underneath, which it usually isn't. So most of mine go right in the trash.

The only title that came with a slip cover at some point in time is the Bonds. Eveything else has been slip cover free.

You crazy! I love slipcovers! I literally cut myself if I buy a movie that doesn't have slipcovers! Those shiny, holographic, fun slipcovers! MUST HAVE THEM!!!
