I'm ready for a kitschy-crap-and-monstrous-box-free retailer exclusive version or two to make an appearance.

The Town and its digibook version was listed on BBY's site a good 2, 3 weeks pre-date, easy. curious to see if they'll have one for this, since no word has been mentioned or leaked yet.

I used to have the prior boxed set, but sold it. I will be getting this one again.

i got it in today, and listed my French disc (got it before USA got the standalone version) on Amazon for 20.

the book that comes in this set is REALLY, REALLY nice. REALLY. if you hate the mega box, there is a disc box that comes out (imagine the foldout on Back to the Future or Jurassic Park, only sans the slipcover), that you can put in your regular collection. it looks pretty nice, actually, proper height, very good spine design.

i will never open the package with the coasters. i think that's silly, though the container holding them is really freaking neat. it's like a kid who plays with the box the toy came in, rather than the toy.

Thanks for comparing this with the previous release. I have the HD-DVD release, and was debating on whether I would upgrade or not. If I can pick it up for a good price, I might just for the bonus features, but I will hold off for now. The HD-DVD looks incredible, and is still refrence material.

We need more reviews like this, that compare the new transfer to previous releases. Hats off to the reviewer!

Almost all of Warner's big box sets wind up getting either digibook or basic keepcase editions exclusive to some retailer, whether Best Buy, Target or Walmart. I have no doubt that one will pop up for this somewhere. Where and when, I wish I knew. I can wait.
