I found the packaging to be superb. Its not weak or flimsy at all. Its nice and sturdy and the front comes with a bit of embossing. So it should hold up nicely in your collection. There's also a booklet included in the set, which is the same as the blu ray "Essential" set. I cannot stress enough how much I really, really love the design of this set.
If you are like me and don't need Blu-Ray, this box set has everything you need, brought together in a nice package. It doesn't have the cool busts of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolf Man that came with the earlier Legacy box set, but it has the advantage of being composed of all single-sided discs, instead of the reportedly unstable double-sided discs provided with the earlier set. All the bonus features of the various earlier releases are included here, as are 4 additional movies: ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO) MEET THE MUMMY, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE INVISIBLE MAN, and the Claude Rains version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (I would have preferred the original silent Lon Chaney version of the latter film).
This set also includes the restored version of DRACULA, complete with bloodcurdling screams from Renfield and Dracula's prolonged death groan. For some reason, some releases of DRACULA reverted to the earlier watered-down, edited version, and I'm happy to hear the complete soundtrack again restored here.
One omission for which I was actually grateful was that the promos for VAN HELSING, included with the lavish original Legacy box set, were left off this collection.Read more ›
