I haven't seen the 2010 version of this box set either, so I can't help you JGF, but I'll join you in asking the peeps here if they can illuminate how everything is packaged. It'd be nice if this information was in the recent reviews, too.
I checked walmart site and dvdtalk, no one answer and the site itself the description of the new set is very repetitive or vague. I don't know if is should save $$ buying freddy vs jason because i own the older box set.
yeah, i remember the picture from aliens quad and it was similar and V: tv series the dvds in the picture looks the same way, it's that the case i think i will pass this box set, the dvd cases of the old box are cardboard cases but at least the discs are protected and they come with the movie artwork.
That sucks then because the way ultimate matrix was arranged it was not good, mine arrived scratched. I tried to see if a local store have the movie to see but not a damn store carries it. Thank for your reply, is appreciate.
If you want this set just for Freddy vs. Jason, save your money! The one in this set is just the first disc. The original release had the second disc loaded with more special features! Get that instead of getting this set, which appears to have all the DVDs grouped together in one big case.
I finally broke down and bought this set, and Michael and Card Recipient were right: this has all 8 discs collected into one oversized plastic DVD case, about the size of 2 regular DVD cases. Nightmare 1-7 are from the individual standard DVD releases (the ones with the red framing around the artwork), and FvJ is just the 1st disc from the 2-disc FvJ DVD release.
One good point is that the DVD case is then situated inside a thick slipcase, with metallic embossed print. Very nice looking.
