I bought Lost S3 on Blu-ray off Ebay, but it didn't have an outer slipcase. It was factory sealed and all so i don't think it was a bootleg/fake. So i was wondering if there's any way i can get only the slipcase since i already have the blu-ray?
I don't know for a fact but I'm pretty sure of what's happened. When Season 3 of Lost was originally released on Blu-Ray it came inside of a much harder cardboard box, not the slipcase they began using on Season 4, for the first shipments to retailers.
Now that the release has been out for a while they no longer provide the hardcover case and never made the slipcover.
If the Lost folks want to sell some extra blu-rays, they should package season 5 blu-ray with a free season 3 slipcase. Then fans will be happy and semi-fans who werent necessarily planning on buying season 3 blu-ray might have more incentive to now do so to have a use for the empty slipcase. OR they could just do what the Lord of the Rings people did and offer the slipcase for the cost of shipping officially from them.
It is really upsetting that they haven't done anything to fix this issue. It really makes the collection incomplete not having the slipcover. I agree about it making Season 3 stick out on a bookshelf...and not in a good way.
I agree with everyone. They should make up for the missing slip. It just doesn't add to the collection. Something else that really brought up my attention is that, on season 3 blu-ray, you get a list of episodes! Then, I thought, great for now on, you'll get the much needed episode guide list! WRONG, I just got the 4th season and it doesn't have it! Also the language and subtitles are not equal to prev seasons. Is like season 3 was not manufactured by the same people as 1,2 and 4 season. That sucks!
