This isn't the giant box set that is coming out but includes all of the 8 films on Blu-ray.

On Amazon it's up to around $105, and just like Amazon, getting it from WBShop gives you free shipping and NO TAX woo! Not sure how long this will last as two weeks ago it was $80, then went up to $100 until I checked it the other day.
Also the DVD version is $66.

It's also $69.99 on Amazon. I'm waiting for the uberset myself.

Amazon only has the DVDs for that price, the blu-rays are at $112. And that set looks so sweet but i don't think I would be happy with myself if I spent that much money on it haha. Maybe if I win the lotto.;)

Can use code DEALS10 to get 10 bucks off. It eliminates the free shipping (fucking stupid, I know) but in the end it'll save you another ~2 bucks. For those who aren't charged tax for whatever reason, it's an extra 5 bucks off.

Thanks for the tip! It is a different set but as it is Region-free I guess it's personal choice.
AND sorry about the tax to some of you. It didn't charge me tax in my trailer park in Idaho.

Echo, echo, echo.

Since the UK one has more discs, is there any reason not to get the UK version over the US version?

I found it hard to locate the exact dimensions but after reading customer reviews the UK version appears to be almost twice the size of the US version, because there are more discs but they also come less discs in each case.

And the UK version has the proper title on the first film!

I read that the UK version doesn't work on Sony players, due to the fact that Sony doesn't read PAL spec.

PAL is a format for standard definition. Only concern with Blu Rays is the Region Coding. I bought this set and it plays fine on a PS3. SD extras in PAL format will not play on any Blu Ray player that cannot handle PAL.

So are the extras on the UK set in SD PAL format? Or is everything in the set HD?

Warner doesn't encode their extras in PAL from what I've read, so everything should be playable on players here.

The NTSC model PS3 does not support 50hz encoded DVD-video or Blu-ray content. Regardless of region code, or the TV. Even being gutsy enough to import a whole compatible TV from the UK won't help.

This set will play fine on a PS3 though.

That means the set's actual video content is not 50hz.
