I searched, but can't find a reference to this specific case type.

I recently posted a correction to "Wire in the Blood, Seasons 1 & 2", a British Region 2 release.  The case type was listed as "keep case", but in reality it is TWO keep cases, contained within a slip-on cardboard sleeve (open at the top and bottom, wrapping around front, back and sides of the two keep cases).

I submitted a correction to change this to "Box Set", but someone voted "No" and it was turned down.

How should this type of packaging be classified?

(I also submitted a few other corrections at the same time, but the case type is the only one that might be disputed. The original listing also said the video format was full frame, and I changed it to anamorphic widescreen 1.78:1 -- but this isn't something that's debatable, since you only need to put the disc in a player to see it's not full frame.  But I digress...)

Tricky one. If it was just a cardboard slipcase it'd definitely be a Box Set....

All case types are shown on this thread:

I'd still be inclined to go for Box Set as it's a sleeve collecting together two or more keepcases .....

I made a change like this just a few minutes ago; the Brady Bunch movies collection, it's just a cardboard band around two keeps. I called it a custom, 'box set' doesn't seem right.

Yeah, that's what this is too - a cardboard band around two keeps.  Definitely nothing like it in Ken's thread with the photos of the case types.

I think either "box set" or "custom". I guess I'll just try submitting it again as "custom" and see if the nay-sayer likes it this time!

Agreed... a tricky one.

It sounds like a slipcase that pretty common for single keepcases, but I have never seen it to combine 2 keepcases together.

I think I would call it a boxset too.

"Cheapass cardboard wrap from tight fisted studio"

The ones who complained last time will probably be happy, but you'll get some new naysayers who will complain it is not a custom case!

Good Luck!

That isn't a slipcase by any stretch.

i think that was me, and i'm sorry because i thought it was something else, so i went back and changed my vote to yes, because you are right, it is two separately released seasons put into a slipcase ... excuse me, slip cover... (after reading carefully reading john's post) as a new box set.


if you re-submit, if you haven't already, i will vote yes immediately.

my sincerest apologies.

Two (or more) keepcases in a cover is a boxset. My opinion.

Technically this is a "Slip Cover" but the way it is being used is Box Set and since "Slip Cover" is not available as a choice, I would go with "Box Set" for the case type.
