It's been a long time coming, and today my long suffering postman brought my most anticipated blu ray release of this, or probably any other year, Universal Monsters The Essential Collection. My already sky high levels of excitement had only grown higher having seen some of the glorious looking screenshots on www.dvdbeaver.com.

The outer box is rather flimsy and rather prone to squashing, as the digi-pack holding the discs is larger than the booklet and postcards included. The box needed to be stronger card to avoid this, but unfortunately they went with the cheaper option. Maybe the coffin packaging will be better in this regard but I didn't want to go that route. The digi-pack itself is fine, and the discs are thankfully held firmly in place.
The postcards and in particular the booklet are a nice addition, and without having had a chance to check the actual blu rays yet, at this stage I'm very happy with the package.
