Wow i don't know if anybody has seen it, but the new art for the Atlantis season 3 is not very nice i have seen better , in fact the last one was much better, but i don't know maybe it is a joke , cause it is just ugly??

Yeah, alot of us Carson fans have already sent emails to Fox complaining about it and asking for the return of the previous cover art.

IMO the new cover art is just a piece of crap... poorly done and with no skill. As an amature graphic designer myself I could do better, much better. I wouldn't mind it so much except for the fact that obviously someone took the heads off of one photograph and superimposed them upon the bodies from another. Which is why John and Rodney look so odd...

If anybody else wants to email fox about it, the email is foxdrop@4icc.com

Yeah, I will be buying it as well because I love the show and want to have it on DVD.
However if it does come out with this cruddy art you can be guaranteed that I will photoshop up my own (and undoubtedly much better) art and replace it asap.

well i definitely can agree with that i'll definitely make my own cover, buy it yeah replace that cruddy cover most definitely ,

i mean really how could they get away with this it looks terrible they are suppose to give quality and i can't believe they would do that i wonder if the actors have seen this ? and what would they think ???

Well, I guess it depends on how well my own custom graphic comes out and how much time it takes to make it. Also it depends on how much it would cost to print it out (I'd take the image to a pro print shop because I don't have a decent printer). So, I really don't know at the moment, I'd have to stop by the printers and see what an estimate would be.

If you are seriously interested shoot me a PM sometime and we can hash out details and whatnot.

Out of curiosity, would you be printing on paper and just inserting into a multidisc case or would you actually print on a thick stock and fold and glue to make it match the other season?

The new cover looks like a badly photoshoped composition of different shots. The heads look out of proportion and the lighting looks different for the individual characters.
Why have they chosen to put everyone in action shots and then just have Teyla standing there doing nothing? Her shot looks like the one they have used in a previous season.
I hope the cover art is different for region 4 but I won't hold my breath.

The Canadian websites still show the original cover art so I'm hoping that the Canadian ones won't be the crappy cover ones. However, I wouldn't really care as I buy them to watch the shows...not to look at the cover.

That's true, plus I only really see the spine of it the majority of the time anyways. At least they didn't try anything crazy like the Sliders packaging.

The reason they probably switched it is because the older one isn't as attention getting "in your face" as the new one. The new one is also brighter in both lighting and the color blue used. Bottom line, they want these to sell more on the shelf most likely. Livelier boxart could get them more sales on a whim than appeasing people who don't like it because Beckett isn't on the cover. I mean, seriously, who isn't going to buy it because of that? DVD sales has always been Stargate's thing, so they probably, and most likely correctly, assume that they already have sold it to the established fan base. I mean, I have all 9 seasons of SG-1 and 2 seasons of SGA on my shelf and the others pre ordered, and I imagine most of you do too. So it's a pretty safe assumption.

Also, I don't know if anyone has brought this up before but, the new one probably has that reflective shiny finish that was on the other ones causing the light to be off when trying to get pcitures of it. If it doesn't then yes, whoever photoshopped the heads on the bodies did a terrible job. But I'm going to assume it does and probably looks fantastic in hand.

You know, I'm not sure yet. I was thinking about that last night. I guess it would depend on what the print shop could offer. If I can do a card stock and fold it into a case then sure, I'll do it that way.

Also, we still don't know what the inside CD covers will look like, for all we know, they may be wonderful, and it's just the outside case that is horrid.

Then, just a reminder, ya'll can email both Fox and MGM and voice your concerns, you never know, they may change it if they get enough emails. The fox email is listed at the top of this thread, and this is the email for MGM: consumerhelp@mgm.com


Skeezix, you're probably right about that... they want something bright and in your face to attract buyers. Personally, for me however, when I look at it I just grimace and think "who the heck designed that?!" But, I'm sure the majority of people who arn't into graphic design and art and all that arn't going to notice, oh well.

eh, no kidding! I got the season1 and season2. What a weird way to place the discs! I have big fingers and seriously was afraid to get a disk out. I ended up putting each disk into a cd disk case and put them all back into the packaging. I love the outer part, it's that weird spongy thing the disks slide into that I hated.


Oh and I perfer the first cover of Atlantis! Why take off Carson and put on goofy poses of the rest of the cast? Someone drink too much beer or something? :)

It blows. Plain and simple. And Beckett is gone. He was still a regular cast member in S3, despite what happened.

For those who want Dr. B back on, want the old version, or plain want to tell Fox the cover sucks, can email them at foxdrop@4icc.com

I spoke to a Fox distributor at Comic Con and she said they have gotten A LOT of negative feedback about the cover. Maybe we can change their minds back! Or get a better version!

I took a look again and after the mention of John and Rodney's heads, I was laughing my head off! Rodney's head looks too big for his body. It's soooo bad. If us Canadians get stuck with the new one too, I may just have to make my own cover! I'm into scrapbooking and recently got into digital scrapbooking for a family reunion calendar and learned a lot. I think if I did my own cover and printed it on glossy photo paper it'd look really neat :).
If they were looking for a new cover to grab the fans attention, yes it does and makes me laugh and want to ask "why" all at the same time.

I couldn't believe it when i saw the front cover they had chosen!
For starters they had removed Carson, and i'm a big Carson fan! He was a main character and even though they did kill him off (:mad:) it was near the end so he should of stayed on it!

I might be the only one but i do kind of like some of the action shots to the standing still ones. But i still hope they change it! I sent a few emails out too!

From About.com (DVD release article)

Not about the cover art, but about the release in general

"Since there's no need to time it with a forthcoming new season, the
tenth and final season of of Stargate SG-1 is already out and is
loaded with features. But for Season 3 of Stargate Atlantis you'll
have to wait until Sept. 18. Watch Carson Beckett die all over again!"

R2 stands for "Region 2"- for DVDs, the U.S. and Canada are "Region 1", "Region 2" is the U.K. and part of Europe. It's all to do with encoding on DVD players and what discs are encoded to work where, or something along those lines. The sets in Region 2 tend to have different covers than Region 1, and sometimes different/more/fewer bonus features, etc.

You can buy region free players in Australia. Pretty much all of them are here, only the really expensive ones are region coded.

GateByte
September 22nd, 2007, 10:27 AM
Or you can buy a dvd player from your own country that you can make region free. I bought a new R1 dvd player here, performed a small *trick* and I know it at least plays Japanese R2 dvds now (borrowed from a coworker). There are a few models, each with various tricks. Some waaaay simpler than others (like mine :)). But if you want legit and guaranteed Region 0 (aka region free), best idea is definitely to buy from somewhere like Australia that sells them.

No booklet or insert- the only kind of insert we've had before for SGA is I think from the season one set- and it was all just advertising for merch and new seasons.




And no, they didn't hurry it. If anything they took too long. They had the perfect cover to start with. :(

To be honest, I really like the season 3 cover. I'm dissapointed in the loss of Carson from the front but I don't hate it! It looks really nice with all of them in action positions! I really don't see how it's a 'horrible' cover.....

Thanks :)

Here is the finished product. I think it's good, I doubt I'll be doing any more to it. It's not perfect, not by a long shot, but, it's a thousand times better than the current cover art.

Feel free to snurch away, just leave my email at the bottom. I'm not sure how well it will print out as it's leaning towards the small size for printing, this is, honest, actuall file size, so.... I can't really make it much bigger to print. But, it ought to be okay for a DVD size print.
Anyway, enjoy :)

I know. I still have yet to actually buy it though, for that matter I haven't even gotten the SGA s3 yet. XD

Tell ya what, if you can find some good s10 cast photos and whatnot I'll see what I can do :). It's the finding the photos that takes forever. (and just fyi, the bigger and higher resolution you can find the better, I can't really use anything less than 400x400 pixels).

Right now I'm working on finishing the matching spine/back for the s3 cover, I printed off a test run of it the other day and I must say, it looks pretty sharp ;).

Wow I actually didn't notice the shotty cover art when I picked up Season three on DVD. Now that I look at it...Sheppard's head doesn't even match. You can tell there is a total change in skin color too...

How could a professional company like fox and MGM put out such a crap cover art? Oh well, I guess we'll never know what it was they were smoking.

On the plus side I'm very impressed with the latest Atlantis fan cover art. Excellent work idlewild202. If I had a printer...and paper, I'd print it out and glue it on my Season Three box set

Yeah McKay is just really badly out of place too. And as for the Beckett thing, I think the producers didn't put him on there because they just want everyone to forget he existed. That way they don't have to deal with the Save Carson Beckett stuff. It's just much easier to pretend the character never existed rather than take backlash for making a crap decision about ousting the character.

Hehe, the funny thing is.... because they decided not to have Carson on the cover they just all the more riled up the SCB folks. When they decided to omit carson from the cover many more letters were sent to TPTB about the whole thing. I know they got an earful about it ;)

I've got the basic layout, the team arranged how I want them. But I'm having trouble with the colors, some parts of the images of the team are very washed out and "redish", if I try and adjust it one way or another it's either to dark or the wrong color. So I got to sit down and hand-color/mess with some parts of them to get it how I want it. Then add the other graphics and whatnot. So, it's coming :)

Did Fox go... "Let's get the worst possible image for EVERY character on the show, and then CGI it to make it look even worse!"

Luckily I don't buy Stargate DVDs, I see no point to them.

Thank you. I had read somewhere that there was french dubbing on the DVD, but when I went to Amazon, there was just noticed "english language" so I was wondering if there was actually the french dubbing or not.
