This tin box is quite breath-taking and is only available through Ezydvd. It follows the style of the german Donnie Darko tins and the variaty of other ezydvd exclusive tins. The front is very roughly embossed and I'm actually surprised at how jagged the edges feel. This is however, not a bad thing at all but rather a nice look for a nice case.
The artwork for the backside of the tin offers a wonderful shot of King Kong's encounter with T-Rex, but also adds the one markdown for this case. Look closely. The picture on the back comes with a set of clouds that've been cloned rather sloppy. This is quite obvious once you've noticed it and it really goes to show that they could have put a lot more effort into the design. It's actually quite a surprise that a box that looks so good in general went through with such an obvious design flaw.
This release also includes the standard sturdy cardboard slipcover as a nice addition to the outer tin.
As far as disc specs and extras are concerned this edition seems pretty even with all the other 2-disc special edition sets. The Post-Production diaries offers a nice closure and together with the previously relased production diaries it amounts to an even larger experience. Apart from the extensive diaries with there total running time of 152 min there's a few more featurettes amounting to a little under 1 hours worth of extra playing time. All in the well made style you'd expect for a hollywood blockbuster.
Surprisingly enough there's no commentary track or deleted scenes included. This is however not to much of a mystery as we can probably suspect this film to get a large variaty of releases to suck the consumers dry (Remember Lord of The Rings, anyone?). But given the heavy playing time of the second disc I'll rate this pretty high anyway, but I'm still waiting for a commentary track before I close the book on this one and rate it THE ultimate set.
The discs come with multiple region codes; 2/4/5.
