Looks like nothing different. Same encode and all. Just the Blu-ray Essentials packaging just like with Bad Boys.

Pretty much. It will just be missing the poster and booklet.

Anyone who has not picked this set up by now is a fool! They have been practically giving it away with prices less than $10 lately (I think Best Buy had it listed at $6.99 a few weeks back)!!! Great disc anyway...

I was really surprised to see the original set at Best Buy in the $7.99 bin. I thought I got a great deal when it was $15 at Walmart.

Picked it up the day after Christmas at Best Buy for $7.99. Not sure why anyone who wanted it would have waited for this one...lol

Well, with an MSRP of $20 and the fact that it looks like this will be a standard-sized case, this will proably appeal to people who don't want the collector's edition taking up the space of three discs on their shelves, and who just want the movie and not all the extras.

That being said, it won't be me. I got the special edition for around $15 off of Amazon about a year ago.

I got mine for $28 on Nov. 12, 2007 and that was after the gold box discount.
