Packaging uses the standard poster images, with the tag
Each DVD features a different opening sequence. Alien Attack has clips of Eagles launching and the breakaway. Cosmic Princess has clips of the actors superimposed over other clips.
The title menu of Alien Attack has four planets with captions. The planets re-arrange for submenus. The Cosmic Princess menu is a busy but attractive montage including a travel tube, the main actors and small clips of Eagles. Submenus are different (the chapter menu is particularly attractive, and the audio menu, using laser beams, is well done).
Both DVDs feature a good selection of extras, much of which hasn't been seen before. Some are identical on both discs: text articles on all five movies (including Spazio 1999), trailers for all four movies (including Journey Through The Black Sun, previously unreleased on DVD, all English soundtrack), title sequences from Destination Moonbase Alpha and production notes (text, unusually detailed). Each also contains publicity photos and lobby cards for the relevant film and merchandising galleries (sourced, with permission, from this website). Alien Attack includes "deleted" scenes (the titles and additional scenes filmed for this film, English soundtrack). There is also a hidden bonus on Alien Attack.
