Second Dark Knight Trilogy Blu-Ray Case
This is the second Blu-Ray case design I’ve done for the Dark Knight trilogy, the first one (posted way back in early 2011) was based on the Tumbler. After seeing the costume display case in the Dark Knight Rises, I thought I’d attempt another one.
Oddly enough my first instinct for the original concept was the costume case from The Dark Knight’s Batcave. It was mostly a cage, so it wouldn’t ideally work (media cases need to be somewhat airtight). The fully-enclosed case from Rises works perfectly.
Whenever possible I will try to design standard case design, as most of my designs are too expensive to execute; at least that is the feedback I get from people in the packaged media business. This case is just a plastic box with a few door flaps and an action figure. A more attainable and inexpensive design, than say, that Helicarrier monstrosity.
The movies can go into a single thick case, like the recent Jurassic Park Blu-Ray release; or three skinny individual cases, like a TV show box set. The case is stored behind the figure, and is accessible via its own door flap.
The costume depicted is accurate to its portrayal in Rises, which is why there is no cape.
For this release I would include a static figurine (no joints or pose-ability), to keep costs down. A full-fledged figure could be included; ideally with a swappable head so you’d have both Batman and an empty costume. OR you could sell the set with no figure, so fans can add their own 5″ Batman. Then again, there is no such thing as a “frugal” collector’s edition. At least not yet.
