Not sure where people are getting that the extras are on DVD for this? Since this is basically a repackage of the discs from the individual releases, and the extras are on BD for those, it really wouldn't make sense for them to be on DVD here. I expect all 11 discs to be blu-ray.


On the store's page, it mentions DVD on top of the extras, so maybe those are on DVD. It doesn't make sense to me either, so I hope it's just a typo.

If you look you'll notice many Blu-ray pages say "DVD Description"

See this Cars 2 page for example:

Yikes, what is up with all these movies having their extras on DVDs. ;)

Thanks for clearing things up.

I think we will be fine. The description of the entire set reads

  • Region: All Regions
  • Number of discs: 11
  • Classification: 12
  • Studio: Warner Home Video
  • DVD Release Date: 2 Dec 2011
I have seen Blu rays called Blu Ray DVds many times so I am expecting everything in the box to be Blu Ray.

My card just got charged so I guess I will see soon

Yeah, to my experience, most things from Amazon UK come well before the "expected delivery date" -- they allow a couple weeks of extra time just in case overseas shipment takes longer. Usually my Amazon UK orders come within a week or so of when they were shipped. That being said, there was the Alien Anthology debacle of last year, where it took several months for it to arrive. Hopefully that was a one-off issue and it won't happen again this year. That being said, meh, I'm not really in a hurry, it will take as long as it takes. As long as I get it eventually...

Ouch, looks like you are the only one so far that got DHL. Mine shipped via Royal Mail with a Dec. 20th delivery date.

Mine shipped DHL as well. Not in a huge rush to get it, but would prefer to get it sooner.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Mine's coming via Royal Mail with an eta of Dec. 21st. I'm not expecting it until next year, though.

Amazon sent me an update to an order I placed this morning, saying that an order I had placed, originally due between Dec. 12 and Dec. 15, will arrive around Dec. 5th. I received it today. So who knows! Maybe I'll actually get the HP set before Christmas.

Royal Mail is the UK's post office, while DHL is a global shipping service. You'll hear anecdotal information on which is better/worse when it comes to shipping from the UK to the US. With DHL you can at least track your packages. Someone else may have better info for you!

I don't know why everyone is expecting an earlier date. Hell, even stuff from Amazon.com that are shipped via FSSS often have an estimated date that's like 7-10 days after it's shipped. Expecting an ETA that's earlier than that when it's coming from the UK, especially during this heightened security holiday time is just ridiculous.

Nice, it doesn't look that big considering it's an 11 disc set. It definitely doesn't look like it's double the size of the US as someone said on a previous page. The two are pretty comparable in size.

Here's an unboxing for the LE set, looks really nice

I was the one who thought it looked double the size, width wise, and it definitely is having seen the four boxes in the case and seeing the US version in best buy. The cases are nice though, I was expecting something like the UK Planet Earth box. This is a lot better.

If the LE wasn't double the price I would have loved to pick that up.
