Thats cool - but many of us grabbed the Amazon UK set for basically the same price, or within a few bucks of the seperate disc costs. Good to see though. I dont like the 3rd and 4th films but for what I paid they were essentially thrown in.

I got excited when I saw the headline, but my heart fell when I saw the price. Then I saw RoadLizards comment, and checked out RoadLizard's comment. I can get the anthology imported used from the UK for about the same price they are selling the discs individually. While I hated the third movie, and haven't seen the fourth, Getting the first two for less tahn what I can buy them seperately is deal to me.

Reportedly these are single disc releases. That means you're only getting the audio commentaries and isolated scores unless FOX reauthored the film BDs to include more extras (unlikely).

The UK import is probably the best deal then, really, considering you get the 5th (stupendous Lauzirika documentaries) and 6th ("Anthology Archives") discs with a ton of special features on top of the films. I know some people don't care about extras, but they're GREAT supplements, and that's just something to think about.

I got the cheap Amazon.uk set too, and I'm happy with it. But it's not fair to compare against list pricing of the individual movies.
