This is my least original creation! And for a few reasons: there has already been a pizza-themed box set for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and this is a shameless rip-off of the excellent Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine DVD box set. However this being a design I would want to buy, I may as well throw it out there. Plus it was fun to make, so why not.
UPDATE (Aug 27/2012): There is now an official release of a TMNT collection in a turtles van. Below is a pic, more details can be found here.
The green light conveys motion using an animated sequence, the yellow light is shaped like a caution triangle, and the red light is shaped like a stop sign, but with an animated white border to show more urgency and danger.
This might be ideal for color-blind folks, who might appreciate the different shapes.
(Note: Updated April 12, 2014) As part of my recent blog cleanup, I have condensed this post to one image and a shorter write-up) Basically this case design uses the Armored Transport vehicle from Aliens to store all the films. The turret would slide to the back of the vehicle (just like it actually does in the film), allowing access to the cases.
For fun I think it would be cool to include a few Alien figures, so you can run them over just like Ripley did.
You might have seen those beautiful wood alarm clocks with displays that peer through the wood in the front. That was the approach here, with the addition of Janine’s “WE GOT ONE” button on top that functions as a snooze button.

I don’t think it’s possible for aftermarket car fobs to be a thing, but if they were I’d like to see one based on the Communo Crystal device from the Last Starfighter. I doubt Centauri would come to the rescue if the Alarm button were pressed.
UPDATE: originally I had a fancier design where they discs would jack-knife out of the stairs but I grew to hate the idea. Discs shouldn’t be so hard to access. So I turned the truck into a napkin holder for normal blu-ray cases.
Here is blu-ray case design for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Three CD-sized jewel cases are enclosed inside the Tumbler, which opens in similar fashion to the real-life Batmobile. This case would be on the larger side, about 12 inches long and 5 inches tall.
