If you're not too jazzed about the cases these come in, it would appear they come in standard BD Cases with the outer VHS Retro Case around it. Just follow the Amazon links and see the other cover art.

I'm not too jazzed because the ones I've seen are just released older product that I already have on BD ala Krull

The Double Team artwork is terrific. Not sure I'll buy it right away (already own the film in that 5-movie JCVD pack Mill Creek released a few years back). If I see it for under $8 I might snag it though.

Except for Double Team, I don't think these have been released before.
These VHS type cases are impractical for me. They don't really fit on my media shelves correctly and if they did, they take more room. As an avid movie collector, that's too much real estate.

The ones from Mill Creek are just slipcovers that have that VHS design on it over a regular blu-ray case. They're not like those big VHS clamshell blu-ray releases that Universal put out before.

Universal example:


Mill Creek example:


Can't really tell height wise, but the Universal release is taller. But you can clearly see the Univesal release is a lot thicker. Personally, I think it was kinda cool that Universal released these, but I find them too big and bulky too. Mill Creek's retro look is the way to go IMO.

I have a couple of the last Mill Creek and Lions Gate retro releases. Both were slipcovers over the standard bluray case.
