AUJ BluRay/DVD: any other country with non-black disc labels? Can't Post

The German version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey seems to be quite the only one with artwork on the disc labels (here the Steelbook 3D version):

The US version has simple black labels with a silvery film title on it. Same is valid for the Russian version.

Now for my question: are there any more countries with other than black/silver disc label design?
Just interested.

I'm thinking the EEs will have the artwork you are interested in. [In reply to] Can't Post

I know we've got Warners this time instead of just New Line, but I'm sure they'll go all out for the EE, since they know collectors are interested in that kind of thing.

I was very disappointed with the UK blu-ray disks [In reply to] Can't Post

As posted on these boards before. The disks are just black, and one is attached on top of the other and wobbly, making it difficult to remove the top one. (This is in the steelbook version.) The inside just looks cheap and nasty, and there is no explanation of the contents of the disks at all.

You'd think Warner Bros could have exerted themselves given how expensive the blu-ray disks are. I'm not impressed, especially given how they plugged the DVDs endlessly to get people to buy them.

Looking at the DVD for the FOTR cinema edition, the two disks (each with a different image on it) open up like the pages of a book and are separated from each other. There's also a folded leaflet inside the case with a detailed listing of the scenes and special features. It looks as though the film company really gave some thought to the design, whereas that cannot be said for the AUJ blue-ray disks (and certainly not for the ordinary DVD disk, which I also have). Unsure
