This may look like a well made design but it's actually one of the more classical packaging fuck-ups in dvd history.
The discs are presented in a standard keepcase, which is accompanied by a heavily embossed metallic slipcase.
The detailing of the slipcase is really good and the colors are quite imressive as well. It's got a very 3D-type feel to it - I mean it's not holographic or anything but it's got a really cool multi-layered embossing thing going on.
Okay, so how can this be bad?
Well, the problem isn't the overall design but rather just a very small production error. The tin case slides off vertically (open at the top and bottom) and it doesn't seem like they made to much of a testrun because the slipcase is just to darn tight. Plain and simple.
The keepcase will definetely get damaged over time as even your first attempt to get it out will most likely result in marks on the plastic as well as a number of angry grunts and curse words during repeated usage.
All in all a very nice looking case but a total blunder when you look at the (un)practical aspects.
Among all the other releases on the market this one certainly stands out with a couple of really exclusive features. Granted it's not the most packed release so far but it still includes a number of goodies that you don't find anywhere else.
First up there's a special high-resolution Windows Media version of the theatrical cut included via the DVD-rom contents on disc 2.
Both the theatrical cut and the director's cut are included though the theatrical is only available as an easter egg.
No Feat But What We Make is not included on any other release except for the 3 disc R2 release from Holland. This runs for 24 min and certainly comes off as a good bonus for anyone already owning the R1 ultimate edition.
There's a new commentary by James Cameron and William Wisher Jr. which is also apart of the Holland release but not included anywhere else.
T2: On The Set is only found on this release but it's only 8 min long so not the greatest selling point if you ask me.
There's also an "interactive mode" setting, allowing you to enjoy a visual commentary and access a bunch of behind the scenes footage while watching the film.
All in all an interesting release for someone who's looking for anything with an exclusive content and already own several release of T2 to begin with... but if you just want to pick up one edition I'd suggest going for one of the ultimate edition releases as these pack quite more of a punch all together.
The tin case is a bit to tight and easily damages the keepcase with time (it's just impossible to get it out smoothly, trust me).
The tin case was only available for the first pressing but due to the problem with the tin (?) the keepcase was later re-issued with a cardboard slipcase using the same cover-design as the tin.
