even 3 XLs + 1 Steelbook, it still leaves space for the special box

We done the calculations already. Go and read the BR2049 thread which I quoted the measurements out. No one is disputing it doesnt fit in, the question is how thick is the special box going to be? If it is rediculously thin it will fit in which I very much doubt.....

war was the same but they reduced the special box down to about as far as possible without getting rid of it pretty much.

I just been doing the calculations again.

XL slips are about 33-34mm. If it has shrink wrap on best to keep it at 34mm.
Standard steelbook is 15mm (with Lenti Magnet)
Maniacs external width is 159mm

So if we take 34mm for the XL x 3 = 102mm + 15mm for the E5 + 8mm for the internal dimensions. That comes to 125mm.
Take 125mm from the external width of 159mm = 34mm for the collectible box.

We need to also take into the account that embossing that was similar to Covenant E3. I actually needed a HDZeta protector to fit that in.

So yes, the collectible box can fit in obviously, there's 34mm space left over. But these collectible boxes are very thick and 34mm isn't a lot of space. So FA will have to design something that's very flat to fit in and compromise the gift design to accommodate space.

But if the embossing is the same as covenant then we are going to have less than 30mm because you dont want to squash them all together and damage the embossing.

So overall less than 30mm, I wonder what we get if FA will choose the same box size? :p

Nicely calculated!

But to be honest, I think the collectible things in previous boxes were just boring, and reducing the size of it is a good choice though.
I hope FA can figure out something better something different instead of those necklaces.....
It could be a well-treated coin, a card holder, a small toy, or something else surprising...
Please stop doing those necklace :rofl:

Still disappointed by the XL size. I'd honestly rather have less stuff than have a box that doesn't look part of a set. I even suggested that they leave out one of the 3 discs when I emailed them.

When you say ‘box’ are you referring to the Maniac box set?

Then can squeeze in the collectible box and make it thinner, like half it’s original size.

If you are referring to the normal slips, the positive side is that when they eventually release all the alien movies it will be just Covenant that’s the standard size.

Then they should have started out that way with Alien Covenant :p

They Started to dabble in XL Slips with Baby Driver(which production was after Covenant) and from there on there has been many.
Now it has become the norm. As FA has previously said, with the inclusion of many disks they can no longer host the bonus items inside the steel.
The inclusion of the Collector's Folder(which is very cool to me), now needs a bigger fullslip (same Style as HDzeta) to host the Bonus Items.

Prometheus is confirmed to be all XL Slips :p

Have to agree. FA announced well in advance they were doing the full series but at just their second release in everything's now changed to XL :facepalm: Way to go FA... :rolleyes:
They will re-release Covenant with XL-slips when they finish the whole franchise:D
