I know the 10 disc set is up on Amazon US, and will probably have some really cool case, but this set is for those that don't care about the case and would like to save $100+ or so.

Includes Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, and The Avengers (titled "Avengers Assemble" in the UK). 2D versions only, no 3D versions.

Special features:

Wow that's just $8 a movie, including The Avengers!

Tempting...

But I like the limited edition SHIELD brief case (has it be confirmed yet?) from the US though... plus the US has the 3D versions (I just got myself a 3D TV for Christmas).

This is a great deal, but I'm also interested in picking up the 3D versions of the films, so I may have to go with the more expensive option for this one.

Speculation says that since they are Disney, it should be region free.

Or you can just read the title of the thread that specifically says region free in it and not worry about speculation.

Yes because thread titles from CAG are considered definitive facts? I'm positive this is region free, but please don't try and lecture someone when apparently your only basis for believing it is the title of the thread, that's just stupid.

The product listing on Amazon UK itself says it's region free, which is most likely where the op got the info from.

Might not be definitive fact but it's not like the op just made up info.

Yes I'm aware, and I'm positive it is. I'm not doubting the op, I'm just pointing out that it's silly to be condescending to someone for no damn reason and then use the title of a thread as the basis for that condescension. It's stupid.. Now if he responded and said something more along what you wrote, or perhaps pointed out that all the individual releases from the UK are region free then I wouldn't have said anything. Saying "durrr if the title says it then it must be true durrr" adds absolutely zero, and was a completely unnecessary response to sassylaurie.

I preordered. Hopefully I remember I preordered it on Amazon UK when September comes. I have a really nice 2011 Samsung 3D LED TV, so I'd like to buy the 3D blu-rays. I might end up cancelling this Amazon UK order. But $8 a film is too good to pass up.

People are condescending on the internet. That's how the internet works. People are anonymous and say whatever shit they want. Can we please use this thread to discuss the deal instead of bickering back and forth?

Damn... I don't have 3D, and I could care less about the suitcase... I am probably going to be in for this.

So the US is NOT getting this set??? Wonder why? Looks like there'd be a market from people that don't want all the bells and whistles, just the movies...

I'm with you on this one. I'd like to see a US release along this line. Maybe in an Alien Anthology type of book, but that's wishful thinking.

Both this set and the 10 disc set are disappointing to me as they lack the extra discs fro IM 1 and 2. Those discs have a ton of extras on them and I don't see why they should be omitted from these ultimate collection sets.

Here's what's missing (source: highdef digest reviews):

IM:


  • Documentary: "I Am Iron Man" (HD, 111 minutes)
  • Featurette: "Wired: The Visual Effects of Iron Man" (HD, 27 minutes)
  • Rehearsal Footage (HD, 11 minutes)
  • Still Gallery (HD, 5 minutes)
  • Theatrical Trailers (HD)
IM2:



  • Ultimate Iron Man: The Making of 'Iron Man 2' (HD, 1 hour 27 minutes 8 seconds)
  • Featurettes (HD, 30:31)
  • Deleted Scenes (HD, 16:50)
  • Concept Art Galleries
  • Theatrical Trailers (HD, 6:22)
  • Other Marvel Trailers (HD, 5:33)
  • "Shoot to Thrill" AC/DC Music Video (HD, 5:37)

With The Avengers in there, this set is definitely worth it. Looking forward to seeing this at my front door.

Still up in the air with this. The way blu's have been on sale over the past year, I am picturing a huge Avengers release sale where all of these separate movies are on sale in their respective 2-3 disc combo packs for $10 or less. Perhaps there will be a promotion where "with the purchase of The Avengers" or "with the purchase of any 2", but I am thinking I will hold off for that reason.

Pretty much perfect for me. I enjoyed The Avengers but have never seen Thor, Incredible Hulk, or Captain America. Six flicks for $8 a pop with no extra crap (DVDs, 3D) is an excellent buy for me. I wouldn't mind the 10-disc set, but with no use for 3D I don't think it will ever be cheap enough for me to bother.

It's not just the title of the thread though, if he would've bothered clicking the link to read the product description, it says region free in the heading of the webpage, the big, bold product description, and under region listing in the description, it says all regions.

It's hard for me to help someone that so clearly didn't even put forth the most miniscule of efforts to find the answer for themselves.

Still up in the air with this.

Perhaps there will be a promotion where "with the purchase of The Avengers" or "with the purchase of any 2", but I am thinking I will hold off for that reason.


Keep in mind that Disney owns Marvel now. When's the last time you saw Disney do anything on Blu for $10 or less? I could see $15 for disc-only blu versions of the movies, but this is the #3 top grossing movie of all time - they're going to milk as much out of it as they can.

I think $50 for six movies, especially these six movies, is an incredible deal, and I'm glad that some of you are getting in on this deal.

So the US is NOT getting this set??? Wonder why? Looks like there'd be a market from people that don't want all the bells and whistles, just the movies...


We're still in the middle of the massive push for consumers to adopt 3D. I don't think it's as bad in the UK as it is here.

They have to save (ransom) something for the IM trilogy box set to give people a faint reason to double dip after IM3.

Have 3 demo SSB codes for trade. Already have last 6 Club Nintendo Wii U eshop games from Club Nintendo. Will take any Wii U eshop game codes I don't already have or Non CN 3DS eshop code.

Here's what appears to be the final artwork for the set. It looks quite nice imo, except perhaps the generic disc art. I still wish they inclded the bonus disc for IM 1 and 2 though
