Packaging / Design

This set is presented as with a beautiful digipack design that's both glossy and very well made. The included booklet is kind of thick but they've made a lot of space within the slipcase and placed it alongside the digipack (as you can see, there is a pocket in the digipack too, so if it's really important to you, you can of course stick it in there as well).

The writing on the cover is done in a silver like finnish that looks very good indeed. There's also a small holographic card that very thin but it's still an interesting touch to this top of the line digi.

All in all a VERY nice design that stands out from the rest with some alternate artwork.


Disc contents / Extras

Disc 1 is labeled "Starship Troopers - Collector's Edition" and it appears to be pretty identical with the single disc R1 collector's edition released in America.

All the menus are in japanese and ugly as hell so navigating is a pain in the ass. The audio commentary is most likely the same as the one featured on the R1 release but you can't switch it on using the audio button on your remote - you have to use the foreign language menus in order to switch it on (it's hidden in a special features sub menu - if you can't find it, send me an email and I'll talk you through it).

Disc 2 goes directly into movie-mode but you can bring up a main menu using the menu-button on your remote control.

Menus are static and in japanese but they look a way better than the menus on disc 1. The audio commentary can be chosen through the menus OR accessed through the remote.

And just as with disc 1, this release of Starship Troopers 2 seems to be just the same as the releases featured on other regions. So in the end it's not a super-packed set but it gets the job done.

As a final note: all the extras (on both discs) come with optional japanese subs.
