    Cool and they fixed the gate, the original package gate had blue chevrons but was the SG-1 gate.

    Yeah, I was waiting for something like this after SG-1 repackaging. They're in line with new SG-1 packages, too.

    Well, I already have all 5 seasons of the old sets, so I don't think I will be getting these for a looooong time....

    These fit with the SGU single releases. All of them are the same sizes

    I've seen the SG1 versions of those, but not the SGA's. They pretty much have the SG1's at FYE

    Redoing the SGA logo with the SGU font was unnecessarily silly. They should've just stuck with the original logo, so that the packaging would be consistent with how the logo appears in the opening credits.

    I wasn't aware of MGM's intention to repackage the SGA DVDs. The official store on their site doesn't have these. Also, why would Michael be on the cover of one of them? He's only a minor character

    An Amazon.com search doesn't reveal these either. Are they the Canadian releases? (under the main title they have the French title) Does that make the covers radically different? If they are the Canadian releases, why does it say: 'FoxConnect.com does not offer service outside of the United States. ' at the bottom of the pages? Are they real? Has this website been verified on the official Fox website?

    Too many questions...

    I agree, didn't notice it before, now they are not so cool anymore, and why is Michael there.

    Yes, why is Michael on a cover when he wasn't even a cast regular? Why not Beckett or Weir, who actually were major characters? I guess the merchandising!fail continues...

    Yeah, I was wondering about the Michael cover. Seems a touch strange. Perhaps if they were bringing out "The Wraith editions"... with Steve on the cover of Season 1... etc. I would buy that. Still, aesthetically, these covers seem quite good. Not keen on the SGU font though.

    Ah right, fair enough. It's just that when I have that many questions about a company or website, my mind immediately thinks dodgy... it doesn't help that part of my day job is to sniff out fraudulent companies

    Already have the five seasons so not giving them any more money... but the attempt to make them fit with the sgu "look" is annoying...are they wanting people to buy the sgu half seasons cause they match???? just how dumb do they think people are?

    oh a funny...at my local walmart they have TONS of the sgu season 1.0 & 1.5 -- can't seem to give them away but the sga and sg1 seasons keep disappearing.

    I'm sorry but I think these are HIDEOUS. I'm soooo glad I bought all my DVD's with the old style -- both SG-1 and Atlantis ones.. I see that people seem to think these as well as the new SG-1 packages are *BETTER*? Better how?

    These are so ugly that if I didn't buy the DVD's before, and had to get them now, I would just throw away the packaging.

    I wonder if there was ever to be a Blu-Ray release these are what the covers would look like, I wouldn't mind that.
