I have The Lord Of The Rings (Ralph Bakshi animated film) in one of those cases, I much prefer the regular plastic Amaray cases to these early cardboard Warner Bros ones.

I have 2001, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Gone With The Wind in the card "snapper" cases and Plunkett and Macleane in the SuperJewell case.

I've got Lord Of The Rings, Payback, Three Kings, Full Metal Jacket, Beetlejuice, Contact, Falling Down and Superman in those snapper cases and I did have Beyond The Mat in a jewel case but the case didn't last long.

One of my Slipknot dvds is in the clear plastic case and I have a few cardboard snapper cases, the film Valentine for one.

The Kubrick collection all came out in snapper cases, except Sparticus (which wasn't in the set) and Eyes Wide Shut (as that hadn't been released at the time). I've got that next door, still not watched Barry Lyndon 10 years later.

Just noticed that the TMNT one is the US release. Cue me spending half an hour faffing about trying to find a region hack for my Blu Ray player

I've got quite a few of the Warner Bros clipper case dvds, including Cobra, Masters of the Universe, Outland, Soldier, 2010, plus others I can't remember. I know about 85% of my Friends dvds are clippers. But, are they worth anything (not the Friends ones, obviously).

I had quite a few of the clippers.IBladerunner used to fetch a few quid in cex for some reason.I used to pick that up in Crack convertors quite regularly for 99p than go trade it in cex for £9 or £10.I thikn they eventuallly cottoned on as the price dropped a lot in the end.

A new discount warehouse has opened up near me so I went to have a look the other day. They have - amongst the other cheap stuff - DVD's, in particular, tons of sealed WB card case DVD's. No idea where they're getting this stock from but it's strange seeing these old style of cases all sealed up as new.

Ended up buying Eight Legged Freaks, Animatrix and Deep Blue Sea in card cases. For some reason, quite like them. The spindles are crap and shatter easily and you can't replace the cover if you damage it but they have a novelty value to me at least.

I have a South Park DVD in one of those also.... Train Spotting, Can't Hardly Wait, Lock Stock and a Shamen DVD :D ... Eeezer Goode Eeezer Goode.... :lol:

Oh and the good thing about the Shamen DVD is that one side of the disc is PAL and the other side is NTSC!

Oh and I HATED those damn cases too!! and the crappy clip cases from Warner... it was better when they all realized the keep case was the way forward.
