I just hope the UK boxet will be somewhat different from this...

I agree. Should the UK version have normal packaging, Amazon.uk gets my cash.

I don't mind this "book" packaging. The Planet of the Apes "40-Year Evolution" blu-ray set is packaged in a similar manner and it's pretty cool.

I just don't want to end up scratching the discs. I end up putting them (Kubrick, Star Wars, Alien & Battle Royale) in normal blu-ray cases to fit with the rest of my collection anyway.

It's doubtful it'll be different, since Amazon.uk displays a product photo with the book packaging also.

That figures. I need this set. I guess I'll be separating the discs by the Bond (i.e. 5 disc amaray case for the Sean Connery films, 1 for George Lazenby, so on and so forth).

That was the case with the Stars Wars set and in the end it was different...
Letīs just hope Amazon UK is just using the picture of Amazon US.

I donīt say it isnīt cool... and a great display thing.
But in the end I just think about how to avoid scratches.

I've removed/replaced all of the discs in the Alien Anthology numerous times without introducing scratches. I love the book packaging. It's elegant, unlike blue amaray cases.

That's not what the main problem is though. My Kubrick set for example was packaged so tightly that I needed to exert force to initially remove each disc thus scratching each and every one in the set. Same thing with discs 3 & 4 from the recent AB Battle Royale Collector's Edition. My Star Wars & Alien discs didn't scratch, however I still put them in amaray cases to be sure.

If this is the final art for the Bond 50 for all countries, amaray cases are a solution, but in the end a lackluster one.

Every set of every movie released should be beautiful, but at the same time pratical.

Agreed. And unlike DVD, light scratches just aren't a danger due to the protective coating.

I hear what you're saying, but with the cost of the Boxset considered ($100 for Kubrick for example), I didn't want to risk any problems down the road. I fear something similar to the disc rot problem AB had with their DVD's as well as the disc rot problems Synapse has experienced with their blu-rays.

Just watched CASINO ROYALE (2006) again and was floored to see that neither the Collector's Edition BD or the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD have the Teaser or Trailer. Now I will be pissed if they recycle the CR disc. That is a huge omission.

side note:
I am sick. I really am beside myself that I can't watch a high quality version of the Teaser. I think the reason I never noticed before is that the previous times I watched CR was with a friend or brother. Watching the teaser is part of my Bond watching ritual.

As I've stated on other forums Zach Snyder's blu-rays don't include the trailers either. Drives me nuts.

I'm hoping there's a chance that the set will come with a movie pass for "Skyfall". Not that it's a big deal but given the price of the set especially when some of us have already bought half of the Bond films on Blu-Ray once already and the bad economy any type of savings is a good thing.
