If you read our story earlier today
showing off the packaging for the upcoming Northern Exposure - The Complete Series
DVD release, you'll know that we talked about how, errrrr, "different" it is. The package art for The King of Queens - The Complete Series
also falls into the category of "different"...but in a REALLY awesome way!
Over a month ago we had the first rumors
about this Complete Series release, telling you that we expected to see it in November. That's turned out to be 100% accurate, and Sony will release it on November 6th
, the same day as they are bringing out the highly-anticipated Seinfeld
releases: Season 9, and its own Complete Series release. And, while the Seinfeld - Complete Series box art looks nice
, it looks like the truly cool package will belong to King of Queens
We caution you that this picture we've obtained is still early artwork, subject to change, and in particular they note that they key artwork seen on the package is not necessarily final. Still, this is a really great concept, which would fit on most people's shelves, look great in any fan's collection, and also ties in perfectly with the premise of the show. An incredible job, Sony, based on this early artwork alone.
Inside that truck, you'll get all 9 seasons on 26 discs. Included is a bonus disc with added extras exclusive to this set, including interviews with the cast. Cost is $232.95 SRP, but this is already available to pre-order at Amazon
, at the steal of a price of just $162.99 (30%), if you order now. What are you waiting for? Oh, yeah...the picture! Here it is:
