While Walmart is not on my choices of places to shop (especially online
) I was suckered in to dropping some loot their way because of this nifty exclusive; a Spider-man Mask DVD Case with Bonus Disc. When The Amazing Spider-man
was announced on home media I kept my eyes open for something cool like this. It's a limited edition Walmart exclusive plastic case is in the shape of Spider-man's face from the movie.
The back of the mask/case is where the discs are held. Opened up, one can see the 20 minute Bonus Disc "Enter The Lizard" (which I'll dissect in another post) tucked away. The peg on the case will also hold the other discs should you want to use this case instead of the standard one. Note the Bonus Disc won't fit in the regular case, as it's the same version that is widely released.
Overall the case looks pretty sharp. I do have to call out a defect on the one I received, though - on his eye it looks as though some paint wasn't applied.
I also have the Iron Man blu-ray
disc case that was a Target exclusive a few years back and in a side by side comparison, they look pretty cool. Too bad there are not more hero cases like these. I have a Batman one from The Dark Knight
and I know a few exist from The Watchmen
Aside from the defect on his eye, not a bad presentation of The Amazing Spider-man
. I would have picked this up even if didn't have the Bonus Disc, so that was a nice...bonus. Note: while Target does not have as cool as a gimmick as this, they do have an exclusive disc packed with their Amazing Spider-man release as well. As soon as I get my hands on it
