    Hi all, :)

    I don't know if this has been posted before, but I can't find it so...

    Sony has repackaged their 3 Muppet films. As far as I know the discs have the same bonuses as the last versions.

    Those appear to be European releases, or some other region outside of North America: the triangle with the U in it is a dead give away, as U in other countries is the same as our G rating.

    Hmm..... let's see....... newish overused stock photo, old, totally overused stock photo, and new but still overused stock photo. But, in all honesty, I like that picture of Piggy.

    I can't even add anything everyone pretty much covered what I was gonna say. Sheesh don't knock yourselves out with trying to make some decent quality covers. Oh wait they didn't. :ouch:

    Here one more:

    A lot of shops are selling these 're-releases' for about £2, which is a lot cheaper than Amazon at the moment.

    Sorry, I forgot to say that they are UK releases. I don't know if they'll use the same cover everywhere else or not.

    I give them credit. The packages will stand out. Although, probably in more ways than one XD

    Don't laugh! It looks like those two were actually an effort. In so much the fact that they erased everything but the background. it looks like the Elmo one took the Elmo on the cover and just blew him up to show his massive head. Given Elmo in Grouchland, that's sort of apropos!

    But still... where is the research that says kids are so insanely stupid that everything has to look like a cereal box to grab their attention?

    I just can't help but laugh at these. The Elmo In Grouchland I think is the best looking one out of all of them. But does everything have to be so bright??! I feel like I need to wear sunglasses. :laugh:

    I liked the original "Muppets Take Manhattan" DVD cover...But to be honest, these look like they would make great box-set insert covers.

    They look like something I could put together and that's not saying much. :o The KSY one though just is way too bright though.

    It's amazing what you can do when combining photoshop with little to no creativity or originality.

    These are really, really bad. The Gonzo one isn't as bad as the other ones, but the Kermit one....you gotta be kidding me.
    PanMan: Where did you find this? It's way too bad to be true.

    Plus CaseytheMuppet raised a good point in a post above: It's not Kermit as a kid. Isn't that what the movie's about?
