My bet : the people helping Eureka on those HK releases find this one and didn't check it wasn't original artwork, and people at Eureka trust it.

Well that twitter post’s gone.
I wonder if it’s the same people behind the Screenbound reissue of Blood on Satan’s Claw...or just a similar approach to QC that led to a similar situation with its cover art.

Not the same people.
Most likely not the same approach.
Similar results.
But wow the people on Twitter are clearly clueless as to how such a thing can happen and are thoroughly willing to hyperbolingly throw the whole company under the bus.
I will also never understand people who first make it public and only then might reach out to the responsible to see what happened. Hey, let's rant first and only then see if they're actually bad guys !

Sadly, that seems to be the world we live in. The internet’s just helped to fan the flames.

I think anyone who followed the RareHorror controversy on Twitter a few weeks ago knows how strongly people on Twitter feel about supporting artists maligned by brands.

Eureka responded to Tony’s tweet (which is still up) saying that they have now emailed him and it looks like their trying to take the damage control away from Twitter. Hope this gets reasonably resolved.

I trust Eureka for this to be a simple but unfortunate oversight.
However, these Twitter responses don't just show people's choice of support but their cluelessness about the possibility something like this can happen.
I was just reading this morning a similar case that happened to L'avant-scène (famouse French movie mag) on a Godard dossier : they thought the pics they chose to illustrate an article were public : they weren't. But they simply settled the mattee with the photograph, who originally requested the copies to be recalled, and that was it.
And we're talking about a 50+ years magazine, à la Positif or Cahiers du cinema.

So yeah : it happens.

It also is a different situation to me than the Screenbound one, notably because it was detected before the release and Screenbound did pretty much nothing nice for the artist and seemingly never tried to settle this in a helpful manner. Here, Eureka contacted the artist within 12 hours, seemingly to find an agreement (and, I suppose, thoroughly apologise as a sign of good will).

Surprised that all the slipcovers for The White Reindeer have seemingly sold out.

Very pleased to receive the Fuller set as a gift today. I love the packaging and compactness of this one. Thick box + slim cases is a winner.

The Mabuse reminds me of an Arrow cover, I'm sure the artist has done work for them in the past.

Not sold on that weird filter they've put on top of the Throw Down still.

Eureka just announced that they will be switching to a 14mm Scanavo case from 14mm Amaray beginning in January 2021 as the Amaray case is no longer being manufactured. As I expect I'll have some broken cases at some point for my legacy Eureka, BFI, and Arrow titles, I'd like to lay in some replacement cases. Does anyone have a good source (preferably in the US) for the clear double-disc 14mm Amaray Blu-ray cases (with flipper insert)?

I saw that announcement, and please forgive me case ignorance, but: does this mean that Arrow, BFI, and Indicator (for their standard editions) are also switching to the Scanavo cases?

BFI has been doing Scanavo cases for a few months now, both of the Ozu's they've released this year have been Scanavo.

I bought a bunch of different cases for replacements at the start of the year, and after much searching the only non-wholesale place I recall finding Amaray cases for sale was on ebay. You were, however, able to find listings for disc tray's separately. If anyone knows of somewhere more consistant, I'd definitely be interested to hear about it too.
