Many of you are taking this out on Best Buy but it's not Best Buy that produces the exclusives.
HBO Home Movies : marketing is the one who's to blame. They decided to go CHEAP this year.
Exclusive Slip covers is always been a deal that HBO gave to Best Buy.
HBO is ending the series rather quick by only filming 7 episodes for season 7 and 6 espisodes for season 8.
The series is ending and HBO no longer feels the need to pump out Exlusives of what seems to be
a dieing format. DIGITAL Downloads are taking over the Home Media Market.
The Slips were nice but in 5 years you wont even have a Blu Ray Player anymore.
Media Streaming Devices will be the norm and most likely 4k will be a thing of the past....
GAME of THRONES 6K will prob. be available by then and playing on your new 6K TV via. 6K steaming box.
Just something to keep in mind. Blu Ray is dieing off. 4K Blu Ray wont ever become the norm before 6K or 8K becomes the standard.
Blame HBO not Best Buy.

It is fantastic that a season 6 sigil cover has finally been released! Thanks to Best Buy & HBO for listening to the fans and making this cover available.
Personally, I had not yet purchased season 6 due to the lack of a sigil cover when it was released earlier this year. I just picked up the newly released cover today.
The only thing that would make this even better would be if the season 5 sigil covers were re-released in the same style as the other seasons' sigil covers. Season 6 has now returned to the same style used for the 1st 4 season sigil covers, but season 5's covers used a different style. It would be easy to re-release Martell as it's style already existed for season 4; only Bolton would need a re-design for its re-release.
Of course, even more importantly than re-releasing season 5 sigils to match is that sigil covers are released for seasons 7 & 8 in the future. Possibly in preparing those sigil covers for release House Greyjoy might be considered for a re-release since it was only offered once for season 2.
