Someone on eBay is selling custom made slipcovers for the Club titles. Pretty cool. No real use to me as I'm content just owning the film (and $15 to ship cardboard!?) but I know a few of you if given the choice would love the slips!

Those are pretty nice, but I'd prefer that they'd been given different covers to make them unique. Theatrical poster art is always welcome. Plus, not only are they darn expensive, that shipping is extreme, even within Canada (where the seller is from). I wonder how many takers he'll get.

Yep, nowhere near as awesome as Droo's custom work!

aw; thanks! :oops:

I'd never dare try to sell any of mine for 'real' money, though .. especially online, where every cent of any transaction could be easily traced by Disney lawyers. There's an awful lot of artists who don't mind living that dangerously, I suppose. :|

Wow...those are *nice*! But the cost of a new disc just for a slip? Plus even more than that in postage? Yes, they’re nice, but no, that’s just not realistic. And I agree that, although the genuine slips just replicated sleeve art, it would be cooler if we got theatrical posters on these...even on those few ones that got slips originally.

Cheaper to throw away the six or so slips that came with the initial titles, though...and still then have the whole series uniform! ;)

Wow, he's sold 36 of those so far! Some collectors are even more OCD than me and Ben!

Oh, if I had the cash to splash there are easily six or eight that I would pounce on, but I’d rather spend that on actual discs than making them look nicer.

If the first few hadn't come with slips then this would be moot anyway, since I doubt anyone would have thought to mock them up. And since those initial titles these don’t come with slips, so it’s not like we have occasional slipcovered titles where some do, some don’t, or they’re hard to find. This line basically doesn’t come with them, so I’m good. Yeah, they look neat — and very attractive in some cases — but that cost is prohibitive, especially when looking at quite a few titles!

Ah, Man of the House...
If there was one argument for the prosecution and death-penalty for early 90's Sado-Masochistic Adult-Torture Home Alone Knockoffs. (And no, not even "Big Fat Liar".)

And I'm guessing Big Green, aka "Goalies Got 'Nards" won't get another next-generation 20's Mighty Ducks-Knockoff reboot series for Disney+.

Nice to see 'em keep on comin', but…nothing to see here. Man Of The House isn’t even worth it for late-model, watered down Chevy.

Where's 101/102 Dalmatians to tie in with Cruella's disc release next month!?? :(

Wow, 4 releases and nothing that remotely interests me. These releases used to always be exciting! Better luck next time. :(
