Packaging / Design

This was one of those releases that just fell into my lap and seemed strangely cheap for a limited edition. But on the other hand it's from Thailand so skepticism might not be totally wrong.

But looking at this thing in real life I can honestly say that as far as the case is concern it looks surprisingly good, even for a rather average quality thai release.

The digipack is a bit flaky as they usually are but it's still a very nice and stylish design and one of the coversides even comes with a metallic doomsday logo on it (image #4).

As for the slipcase this is way better than expected. The quality is all glossy and embossed with some pretty cool details to it. The only real downside is the fact that it's quite a tight fit and might take a bit to much work to actually get out.

Furthermore; my copy also came with a surprising amount of glue residue a bit here and there. I don't know if this is a matter of poor factory work or some other dodgy part of the manufacturing chain but it does add a since of cheapness to it.

On the other hand the price was really cheap too so go figure. Well worth the money I spent on it.


Disc contents / Extras

This release comes with 2 discs but still comes off as a very slim edition. The first disc has no extras whatsoever but has atleast been given a nice treatment for the menu system.

The film comes with optional subtitles and all that but no commentary track or alternate audio except for the mandatory Thai DD 5.1 track.

Disc 2 on the other hand does add a bit more flavor to the set by including a couple of really short extras. Sadly, there's still a big NO-NO on this disc too as all the extras come with burned in thai subtitles which is rather annoying even if the extras are totally english fiendly anyway.

My suggestion would be to pick this up only as a supplement to a better edition which is sure to come out on several regions in the future. On the other hand, if you're a packaging-freak such as myself I'm sure you'll be quite happy with this set as long as you don't spend a fortune on it (so get it now while it's still cheap and available).


Sidenotes

The cover states the discs as being region 3 but they're actually region 0.

Nice one, Hugo! :) Hadn't really checked if they were still on sale. I bought this a long time ago so I thaught they were OOP by now. Guess they're not THAT limited then ;)

After seeing your video I grabbed one copy for myself. Excellent price for a nice looking digipak. Now I'm just waiting for it to arrive :)

Cool release, but I like the Tin case better
