Three more discs than the US set, and more special features (the US release doesn't have any) for half off the price? Sold.

I've never had any charges beyond the normal price + shipping when ordering from Amazon UK. Don't hold your breath for Amazon USA to pricematch, Amazon UK is notorious for having Blu sets very cheap.

The US has not been part of the UK for over 200 years, so no. It's £3.08 shipping for me.

You don't have to notify your bank of anything, if they charge a fee they'll do it automatically

*Warning Stupid Question*

Is this the entire series? Or are there more coming or not in this set? I have never seen any of these movies but I have a four year old who might enjoy these in a few years.

This is the entire series.

Seven books, with the seventh book split into two movies, so a total of eight movies.

There's a "Ultimate Edition" version of each of the movies that had come out previously with some additional special features, though each one of those has been about $30+ each and once you get one, you need all of them, as there's a documentary that covers the entire series of movies with an entry per movie.

This option is the cheapest way to get all of the movies in one set. Guaranteed to be cheaper than the US version of this set, without question.

Any real difference between posted deal and this?

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Looks like the only difference is having DVDs for each movie in addition to the Blu-rays.

It also comes with a 48 page Photo album and is numbered to 1,000.

Yea I saw the book, and I think the 1-1000 is random.

There are more pressings, but the first thousand are numbered.

I might just stick with the blus only, and hope something bad ass gets released in the US.

The numbered version is odd. It's an Amazon UK exclusive but I don't really see any reason to have a numbered version when the same set is sold elsewhere without being numbered. It's like forcing the impression of it being "limited" to take advantage of HP fans

Now that you say that I see that.

So more people will order it to try, and get in that 1- 1000.

Maybe a dumb question, do I need to make a UK Amazon account if I already have a US Amazon account to buy these things? Or can I just click the link and sign onto my account and I'm good? Thanks.

I used my normal account and it worked fine.

The DVDs won't be region free, so they won't work in a US DVD player.

You don't have to pay a currency conversion fee for Amazon. They automatically know your currency and charge you in that currency.

Not for me they haven't

Usually they offer me an option of being billed in US currency when I place an order, but for some reason they didn't this time. Weird.

That only works for in-stock items, not pre-orders.

Hm... I've had it happen on pre-orders before, but those might not have been quite as far in advance as this one.

So, dumb question... Do we know for certian that all of the special features on those extra discs are in HD (and not in 50Hz) or in NTSC? Because if they're 50Hz or PAL, region-free isn't going to help.

Hmmm...I jumped on this instead of the U.S. Amazon DotD. Signed in with normal US email and it signed me in just fine but when u checked out the price changed to 26.92 gbp. I just got the confirmation email and sure enough total with shipping is an even 30 gbp.

Fantastic. I still have my "suitcase" HD DVD collection but had to pull the trigger on getting all the Blus all at once at this price. Thanks, OP (and for the bump, heh).
