I really wish they would just let Whedon do Avengers 2 and not bother with the individual movies. The only really good Phase 1 movie was Iron Man.

Um, Whedon IS doing Avengers 2. And the upcoming S.H.E.I.L.D. TV series. He might collaborate with the other directors to help tie them together, but Whedon will have little to do with Iron Man 3, Thor 2, or Cap 2.

Anybody who got the set, does the bonus disc include the documentary from the Target-exclusive bonus disc?

I think what he meant is why don't they skip all the lead up movies and make Avengers 2 first, which is an amazingly stupid idea in it's own right.

That is what I meant, but I, of course, don't think it's amazingly stupid. Coming off of Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2 was a bit of a let down for me. And seeing how trilogies rarely ever end on a strong note and the trailer left me kind of underwhelmed, I'm not too enthusiastic about Iron Man 3. I also found The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America movies to be just okay. Again, it wasn't nearly as great as Iron Man 1. I'd be down to see the Guardians of the Galaxy just to see how they handle that, but I personally don't really need another Iron Man, Thor, or Captain America movie. I'd rather them do another Hulk movie since there's actual character depth and Ruffalo was pretty good in that role.

I loved all the movies so far. My least favorite was Thor (though it was still awesome) and my biggest favorite was Captain America. Chris Evans was perfect in the role.

Just got this from Amazon today. Case isn't actually as cheap as some people say it looks in the video (I hope no one was expecting metal at this price) but I agree the handle is way too damn small. Biggest thing I have enjoyed out of this set are all the physical replicas of documents, blueprints, id cards, newspaper clippings, etc. If you have ever seen the museum style books that come with replicas like the Marvel History, DC History, etc. then you will have an idea of the type of replicas in here.

I own all the original movies but since I am a Marvel geek fanboy I feel like I got my money's worth. If you don't own the movies and don't mind missing out on the Iron Man bonus discs and digital copies for the movies, this would be a good route to go. However if you do own all the movies already, the only real bonus you are getting are all the physical goodies and maybe some exclusive behind the scenes stuff which I haven't checked out yet. The case is just something to hold it all in and the tesseract cube is pretty cheap and not much to it IMO. Kids might get a kick out of it though, I know my cat does.

Cheap as hell box. Worse then expected. Innards are even cheaper plastic. Art and extras are fantastic though. I don't own any of the movies in the set so this worked out well for me.

Pretty much my thoughts.

Still kind of amazed they couldn't be bothered to include the bonus discs for the Iron Man films though.

Sooo... for those wanting to know what the exclusive footage stuff is, which is about Avengers Phase 2 stuff, here you go.

The link also includes the AntMan proof of concept footage which was shown at Comic-Con which apparently isn't in the Avengers Phase 1 box set

My preorder from Amazon has been "shipping soon" for three days. Should I contact them to see what's going on? I'm a prime member and I've had this preordered since b4 the price jump.

Got mine from Amazon today and I was super disappointed with the way they shipped it...

They just put shipping labels directly on the item and sent it as is. No joke. No shipping box was used and now the item is beat to shit and has stickers all over it...

Contacted Amazon and they are apparently overnighting me a new one. When asked if I had any other questions, I asked if a box would be used this time, and the answer was "of course".

I cancelled my order last week. Looking at that unboxing video, I'm glad I did.

I'll pick it up when it hits clearance price.

Got mine in yesterday and gotta say I'm utterly disappointed in it. NOTHING like the set I saw at SDCC last year. No longer a metal case, and only half the size of what the original one was supposed to be. Looked at the unboxings online and damn that Tesseract looks super cheap. WTH...you guys couldn't include digital copies or UV?

I don't even have all the movies and I'm sending mine back to Amazon unopened. So cheap looking...ugh...I'm upset thinking about it! Not worth the $140! If I do end up buying it again it will have to be for no more than $50. For now I'll be happy with my free copy of The Avengers sent to me by Amazon for the inconvenience, as well as the Target Edition of The Avengers in 3D Blu Ray I ended up buying after discount.

Thor and Captain America I can watch on Netflix! Iron Man and Iron Man 2 constantly play on FX! So does the Incredible Hulk.

They ship the kids' diapers and wipes the same way. Obviously, I don't care about the box, but I'm glad I'm in a safe neighborhood. In some areas, that stuff would get stolen off a porch in a heartbeat.

They shipped the Portal Gun I ordered same way. The Avengers set was in an actual box though...likely since I ordered a number of other things that happened to get shipped at the same time.

Nah, mine was alone and came in a box. Somebody goofed on that one, and somebody else goofed to let it out the door that way.

Only thing I ever received from amazon that was not in a amazon box was the big casio keyboard I bought for my wife. All my portal guns and the avengers set came in boxes. I guess some people just have some shitty distribution centers near them.
