Waiting for the inevitable like 18-20 disc complete version with all the extras that the "ultimate" editions have.

But if you don't care about that stuff this is a f'n steal.

I would like to have the extended versions of the movies, but since they only did that for the first two, I think I'm just not going to worry about it. Beyond that, I'd probably never watch most of the extras anyway.

Any idea what kind of case this will be? Gonna get it for my wife for x-mas anyway and she won't care about the package or the extras so it's a sweet as heel deal for me but i was just curious. I almost bought all the movies on Blu for $13 each at Target last week, great thing I waited.

I went ahead and pre-ordered as well. Was planning on slowly buying all Ultimate Editions of the film, but figuring that probably would wind up costing over $200 vs $50 for this set I decided it wasn't worth it. Thanks OP

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.


Great question, I was wondering the same thing. Going to look into that before I place any orders.

Well, one thing worth noting is that with Amazon, it's very easy to cancel an order right up until the item ships. So I went ahead and placed my order now to make sure that I had the price locked in, though I'll be keeping an eye out for info between now and then to decide whether to keep the order or not.

Is there any way to pay with my giftcard balance from my amazon.com account.

No, gift card balances from amazon.com cannot be used on amazon.co.uk.

this will probably sound stupid but I think it's actually kind of cool buying this set means the first movie is tagged "Philosopher's Stone"

They say "Philosopher's Stone" instead of "Sorcerer's Stone" whenever it is mentioned in the movie too.

I think it's dumb that they changed the title to begin with, just so dumb Americans wouldn't get confused.

Actually thinking of canceling my pre-order. The package looks to be about double the size of the US package, and I think I might be able to get it cheaper than the current $80 pricetag. Space is an issue on my movie shelf.

I'm really want to wait for the ultimate collection too but I'm tempted by this set for ~$47. I'm thinking if I do decide to get this set I could sell it when the ultimate collection comes out and probably break even on it.

Head ups for anyone buying this. I ordered a bunch of stuff from Amazon.uk last year around this time and didn't get anything til the end of January. Pretty much everything took 40+ days plus to arrive.

Normally you get stuff in 3-4 weeks from them.

I know last year they had all types of security alerts from packages coming in to the U.S by plane. So basically everything was coming in by boat. Probably be the same way this year.

Nope. They only did extended editions of the first two films.

Why would you want to have to endure more of the first two films? ;)

Ahhh really? May cancel then. I wanted to give this to someone for Christmas.

Hmm, there has to be some way to bypass the Region 2 protection of the DVD extras. Otherwise, they should make for nice coasters.

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.
