There isn't a rarity list anymore as it was causing a lot of problems within the slip community. I do know what is rare and can give you prices if you would like to know.


There's actually a "slip" community. Man, the things you learn on CAG. Im really curious as to what are the holy grails of slip covers- like the top 3 most desired.

haha yeah as funny as that sounds this is a pretty good size community of people that collect, trade, and sell slipcovers.

And hmm the top 3 most wanted? As stated before the rarity list has been deleted but I would have to say that the top 3 most wanted that I know people are looking for are

Kung Fu Panda (Target Exclusive)
Inglourious Basterds (Target Exclusive)
Bram Stokers Dracula

Those for the most part are what a lot of people would like to get a hold of.

People actually keep those? I just throw mine out, especially if the slip cover is exactly the same as the cover. I didn't realize I could trade them to people.


Same here.

Inglourious Basterds (Target Exclusive)


Spoiler


Mmmm...so sexy. Black instead of red border.

Also, yeah, there is a "slip community" because slip covers are released initially and then discontinued. Driving people like me - who know these movies had slip covers originally - crazy. Its kind of a completionist thing. I dont know...

Speaking of which...I need an Inglorious Basterds slip cover. I'd pay $3 (for the red)

Also, thanks everyone for your replies. Should we turn this into a Buy/Trade Slipcovers thread, or just leave it?

Very nice, I see someone else keeps the stickers on also.

Interesting. I too had no idea that people collected. I've always just thrown these away because I don't like the extra bulk and I never considered them to be part of the movie or worth anything. I'll have to start keeping these for trading purposes. Now I don't feel so weird for hunting down case inserts for games.

well if someone has Stargate Ark of Truth slipcover or Prince Caspian slipcover, I'll gladly buy it.

I hate stickers on slipcovers! The slipcover is meant to be experienced in it's fell intended glory - not to be covered in Gamestop-like stickers. For what its worth, Best Buy stickers seem to be the biggest pain in the ass to remove as they often stick really good and will fall apart when being removed. They'll also often take off some of the slipcover with them especially if it's a metallic type slip. Target actually seems to be the best in not putting price stickers on slipcovers. I can really appreciate that :)

I know the special edition of Casino Royale had a slipcover that is apparently hard to find.


Hmmm, I still have that sealed.

It's pretty hard to find but not impossible. Other rare covers are the Comic Con Harold and Kumar slipcover and Dream Girls Academy Award edition.

I have that Inglourious Basterds slipcover!!! No stickers though, I think that it makes it look cheap.

I am a nut about completeness, but I'm even more a nut about uniformity. And having some of my Blus with slips and some not wasn't working for my nuttiness. So I remove them now (yes, that Green Hulk case bothers me too). Anyway, I have a lot of these mentioned (Dark Knight, Basterds, Hot Tub, District 9). Just pony up for the shipping and handling and they're yours. I've actually been wondering what the hell to do with them...

My Man with the Golden Gun Blu looks odd next to all the other older Bond movies since it's the only one without a slipcover. I also don't have the Casino Royale one. I don't think Quantum of Solace came with one, but I'm waiting for that alleged Definitive Edition that doesn't seem to ever be coming out.

There's a regional chain in my area where the price tags are the security tags, so once they're on the slipcover, they ain't coming off without damaging them. Of course, I don't buy movies from them anyway.

I like slipcovers, too. But I had no idea there was a community of them that only collected the slips. I prefer getting slips with my movies, but I'm shocked that people collect only the covers.

This will help with all your sticker removal issues bud.

If you do end up getting it here's the best way to apply it because I know someone is going to have questions about it.
Use a Q-tip to apply the Goo Gone wait for about a minute or so and then slowly remove the sticker. If the sticker does not come off then apply some more Goo Gone and repeat. Some stickers that have been on for long time will require more then one application. Just be careful how much you use and just don't soak the slip in it and you should be good.

Also FYI there are certain slips this will ruin if you use it. Any slip that has a felt like texture to it the Goo Gone will remove the felt and you will have a flat spot.

If you don't have Goo Gone. Rubbing Alcohol and Resnol Lighter fluid can also be used. I have not tired the latter two but heard they work. Some people have said they use a blow dryer and or steam to remove stickers but I think that those are a bad idea. I have seen many slips ruined by people using those methods.

WM and BB are notorious for having some of the worst stickers to remove. The Yellow BB ones can be a pain and same for the WM white ones. It just all depends on which ones they decided to use that day. Some are come off easy some not so easy.

haha I get that a lot but it's a fun hobby. No different then collecting other paper things. :)

So has this become a buy/trade/sell thread now?

If so then cool. It should get a sub forum and then they can merge my Request page with it.;)

And to all those wondering here's a list of all the slips that are available.

http://forum.blu-ray...ion-thread.html

The OP keeps it pretty update to (sharpy, awesome guy) when he get's a chance. I have a list on my site as well and I know a few other guys that run lists. We all try and help each other out on maintaining the accuracy of the list.

My only question is how some people get their covers. I was browsing forums and saw a daily find thread. Are you guys just stealing the covers or buying them? That confused me.

As for my feelings on it. I really only care about it for my Disney blu collection. Other than that, I really don't care.

Yeah, that doesn't make it any less weird. Ha ha. But hey, more power to you. If it makes you happy and doesn't cause harm to anyone, you guys have my support. Besides, I've been known to have plenty of my own strange collections; I used to collect business cards...I'm not even sure why...it was just something to do, I guess.

Most people buy the movie and get it with the slipcover or buy them from other people that are selling them. I have friends that when they buy a blu will keep the slip and give it too me.

haha that is an interesting thing to collect. I've never heard of someone collecting Business Cards but that's cool. I bet you have some pretty cool ones.

I'd like an Iron Man slipcover. Mine looks kind of odd with Tony Stark on the front with nothing else.

I do have some really cool ones here and there, but most of them are pretty boring. I've known one other guy who collected these, but he sold his for a few hundred dollars. I guess you can get a decent amount of money if you find a company looking for card ideas.

OP, if you're going to turn this into a sell/trade thread, it's not going to stay in this forum. Trade/sell threads belong in the Trading Forum, and this thread will get moved there if you're going to start having trading/selling of slipcovers.

Sure, we can move it there.
