Packaging / Design

This is sort of an odd set but quite a nice presentation. The tin case is made from a shiny chrome like metal but it's not totally chrome - it's more like dirty chrome... Kind of hard to describe.

There's a very subtle frame running along the edges of the lid. Judging from photos I had seen before seeing it IRL I actually thaught that these were scuff marks or some other damage but it's actually meant to be there. (you can see it clearly on image #6)

The second thing that's quite weird about the lid is the fact that it's way to large. In fact, it's hardly a lid at all. If you try to balance this box on it's side it will absolutely fall over, but the lid will fall on it's own as there's no lock or even hinges to keep the two together.

I mean it's like a really big hat. I don't know what they were thinking. You know that phrase; "It fits like a glove" ? Well, that's true, if the glove your thinking of is a boxing glove... and that boxing glove is the size of a fucking car. Get it?

But let's move on. The bat-logo is quite thick and made from tin just like the rest of the case. Inside you'll find several pieces of foam rubber cut to hold the the business-card tin and the disc in place.

The disc sits quite plainly on a plastic hub which is simply glued onto the foam rubber (and it's not even glued well so it will come loose faster than Robin can say "Holy Sardine!").

The business card tin is pretty much the same kind of tin as the rest of the case, with a sort of rough and dirty look to it. The inside of the lid also has a an etched in version of the classic "Why so serious?" tag seen in various adds.

All in all a pretty good looking case but surprisingly poor when you look at the overall technial aspects of it (no locks, the lid is to big, the poorly glued hub etc).

Still, looks quite nice on the shelf, I'll admit.


Disc contents / Extras

The disc has very little going for it as this is just a trailer promo and not really even a press kit. On the other hand it's pretty obvious that that's all there is to it so I can't really say I expected anything else from it.

But anyway, the trailer is atleast presented in anamorphic widescreen and starts to play automatically without anti piracy adds or anything like that.

There's no menu or additional info at all so the term "Trailer DVD" is really quite fitting to describe it.


Sidenotes

There were never any cards included with the business card tin as far as I know. Kind of an odd touch if you ask me.

At this point I have no info on how many of these sets were made.
