or did they do away with them by now? thanks.. Blu-ray.
Why don't you email amazon and ask instead of making yet another useless thread. That being said, I still only see copies of Psycho III on store shelves with the slipcase so it would seem more than likely that you'd get one.
Just don't order from Deepdiscount. I ordered one of the Shout Factory titles and didn't get one Your best bet is Diabolikdvd I think they all still have there slipcases and if you're not sure just e-mail them there and ask, they usually respond within a day.
I've ordered Shout Factory titles from Deep Discount and ImportCDS and received a slipcase.
If you want a slipcase buy the title within the first month of release.
Can't recall when this came out, but I've ordered stuff from amazon and directly from Shout up to 7 months past release date and have got slip covers with all of them. I'm almost thinking Shout keeps them in print, they certainly stay around far longer than any other studio offerings.*
* Except Dredd, I have yet to see a copy of that without a slip and it's been out just under a year. Figures since I ended up an extra during the 'bad batch of Best Buy bring back blu-rays.'
Psycho III is a fairly recent release (September), so I would imagine you're safe.
But if you're really that concerned about slipcovers over the movie, your best bet is to buy them when they're released.
Shout Factory has said that they ship them all out with slipcovers still and they don't remove them the sellers do for some reason. They also stated that starting with their new releases in January they will be shrinkwrapped to prevent this:evil:
That's awesome news, except the only place around here that carries any Shout BD's is Barnes and Noble, who throw out slipcovers (solved) and charge at least full retail, sometimes over. Worst of all, they don't price match either. But if anything ever goes on sale or out of print, it's nice knowing a complete version will be sitting there. No one is ever gonna buy that copy of They Live without the slip for $34.99, esp. when retail is $29.99 and online is $18 and change.
^ I think the comment Shout made about shrink-wrapping the slipcovers also mentioned that they will only be doing slipcovers for the first few pressings. Once they're gone, they're gone. I could be wrong though, they posted that a while ago.
You are correct. That comment came straight from Cliff. Slipcovers on first pressing only.
Do they release every title with a slip case? I recently got A Boy and his Dog and that did not have one.
Nope, a lot of their releases just don't come with them. A Boy and his Dog was one such title that didn't have one included.
Only the releases labled as collector's editions come with slipcovers.
Not always. A Boy and his Dog is labeled as "Collector's Edition" also, and had no Slipcover.
Scream Factory Collector's Editions get a slipcover. I think they also did a slipcover for Dead Souls and Cockneys vs. Zombies for some reason.
Non-Scream Factory Collector's Editions (or Coleector's Editions as in Captain America's case), like A Boy and His Dog, aren't standardized in the same manner and don't typically get a slipcover.
funny thing about shout releases, is that I never see any of them in stores like target or best buy. I ordered all mine from amazon and deep discount. Maybe its the ones here around philly, but nope. never seen best buy carry them.
I've seen Halloween III and They Live at my local Best Buy, not much else. The selection really sucks there now anyway.
Oh, I didn't know that was a collector's édition. Was A Boy and His Dog a Scream Factory release or a Shout Factory release?
Ok, so maybe it's just the Scream Factory collector's editions that get slipcovers.
