Shout Factory’s MST3K DVD packaging blows minds

This post originally had a much filthier title. Yes, it’s that good.

In a move that should have every single Rhino employee hanging their heads in shame, Shout Factory has posted a picture of the awesome packaging for their first MST3K episode collection, on the set’s Amazon page. Though this isn’t confirmed, it looks to me like it could be a tin. And hey! It doesn’t have a lot of random, only vaguely related imagery on it! Incredible!

We still don’t know which episodes or extras will be in the set, but recent promo material stated that Werewolf and Laserblast would be on there. Though Shout Factory has said that this was a mistake, I wouldn’t be surprised to see one or both of these in either this, or the next, collection. The official lineup should be revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con, in a few weeks’ time.

The “20th Anniversary Collection” should be out on October 28th, and can be found on Amazon for a hefty but probably worthwhile $48.99.

  1. So let me understand this. The cover to MST3K: The Movie was “lame”, but this is “awesome”.

    having some trouble sussing that out.

  2. Did you even see the planet logo they used for the movie? The whole cover looks like a bad Photoshop job by someone who only knew about the show from Wikipedia.

    This, on the other hand, is tasteful and quite suitable for something dubbed the “20th Anniversary Edition.” Plus, it stands out more when compared to Rhino’s past work. Even the movie DVD is better than some of Rhino’s past work.

  3. That cover art is a thing of beauty. I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
