    The positioning of that hand is... unfortunate.

      It seems that they listened and are working on a final cover, here's another they posted.

      I wonder how they're going to package this, all 4 cases in a box like with New Video's Digimon 1-4 set or in 1 case and if it's the latter then is there such a case that can safely fit all 21 discs?

          Short of using any of Tetsuo Hara's artwork, that second cover is fine enough I guess. That first one...wow, that's just an unfortunate thing for the artist to add in there...

            Well, given what Discotek had available to choose as far as artwork goes, I guess it works. The image quality is extremely terrible, but then again that's because of the age of this show. At least the message that this is a hot-blooded action show gets through with Kenshiro uppercutting the enemy there, but I then realize that there just isn't a whole lot of options here. It does the job at least, whichever one ends up getting chosen.

              Nice to see Discotek going the Complete Collection route after the individual box sets have been out for a while. Skipping this release, as I have the original box sets.

                I'm wondering how they'll package this; we're talking 21 discs, if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure they make a case that can hold that many discs. Or is Discotek going to use multiple cases? I've yet to set a release of theirs that uses more than one case, though.

                  It's interesting to see a complete TV series in one set. The artwork for this is so-so at the best. Then again, you are not really buying the series for cover art.

                    Updated cover art added on top of first post (no crotch hands).

                      Crotch hands or not, that's some rather unfortunate cover art.

                        Alright, at least the new cover art is more presentable without the crotch hands. But still, the artwork isn't exactly the best choice, I think.

                          It almost looks like he has a long black tail. The second choice was better.

                              From someone who posted these at Amazon, it seems that Discotek used the same case that Lionsgate used for the 20-Disc Robotech set which for those unaware, had some of the discs stacked on top of others.
