Packaging / Design

Despite having a rather thin slipcase, this set comes off as a really well designed high quality box set. The outer sleeve may be thin but at the same time it feels very durable and comes with a really nice matte black background overlayed with some glossy black printing. Also pay special attention to all the little tears and creases which are actually part of the design rather than actual damages.

The inside comes with a fairly unique and clever case. What starts out as a common digipack soon turns out to be an all out folding fest as each of the three parts also fold out vertically. This reveals a total of 6 discs, all with a wonderfully design vinyl-record style for the discart. The material used for the digipack itself almost feels recycled at times but it's so well done and has such a wonderful detailed printing that it actually works to it's advantage in even further connecting to the films retro-feel and old school qualities. And I realice I keep calling it digipack even though it doesn't actually have digitrays in it. The disc just sit on a set of plastic hubs, but are still nicely protected by being surrounded by a thick cardboard base cutout around each disc.

All in all I'm just amazed at how good this set actually looks and I doubt we will see something this beautiful done for these films in a long time.


Disc contents / Extras

Back in the old days (which was actually quite recently) this set was the definitive choice for any true fan of the films as it was the only DVD release to include the combined theatrical presentation of the movies (meaning it has both theatrical cuts combined as one feature with a set of fake trailers seperating them, just the way it was presented in the cinemas and always intended to be viewed). Also, there are some notable differences to each film when comparing the combined theatrical version the the unrated stand alone cuts so actually owning both versions has always been important to most fans.

Nowadays (in 2010) the combined theatrical presentation is coming to Bluray in the US but it then lacks the unrated stand alone versions of each film (the way the films were cut when they were made available on DVD separately). The bluray does add a few new extras but it also lacks a couple of features from the old japanese edition. For one thing it seems the fake trailer for Machete has unexpectedly been taken out completely on the bluray version but there are also brand new commentary tracks for the other fake trailers when it comes to the BD.

As expected, in the end it all boils down to what you find most important. I still rank this edition as the best version to get as it has both the packaging and all the different cuts and the all fake trailers intact. A die hard fan might obviously want to pick up the new BD (in addition to the japanese set) for a better image quality and the new extras but overall I would still choose the japanese box set if I had to decide between the two.

As a final comment on this set, please take note of the fact that most of the menu selections on all discs are presented entirely in japanese, which can make navigating a bit tricky.

Hi Oskar,
Im a graphic design student currently in my final year of university. I've followed your blog for just over a year now and i love it :).
I was wondering if you could do me a MASSIVE favour. Could it be possible to have all the measurements to this box set please. If you need a diagram drawn i will try and create one from the images you have put up.
Thanks in advance.
John :)

Hey, Oskar!
Thank you very much for put all this info at your website.. It really helped me a lot, because someone asked me about the contents of my new DVD box set and I was able to send the person to your website, which is great!
Cheers,
Sammy
