Looks like they’re as thick as vhs boxes, but dvd height. Still a bit silly though. Looks like they’re not really digipaks though. Now if it has been me, I would’ve used the same retro vhs art, but just put them in normal blu-ray cases.

They do actually appear to be plastic cases that look like vhs cassettes inside a slipcase.

If they are blu-ray size then doesn't that make the vhs cassettes actually Betamax?

Haha, unfortunately not. The descriptions on HMV say they’re the height of a dvd case, which is a little strange. I’m thinking if they’d made them blu-ray size, the art would’ve had to be smaller and maybe didn’t look as good.

Sorry i was confusing myself thinking bluray cases were larger than dvd ones when it's the other way round.

Just realised 48hrs isn’t the original CIC Video art. Booooo!

Will wait for reviews but looking at ET and Warriors if they are original cuts.
They look good but will this replace premium collection in hmv?
