Default Unusual boxset found on ebay, 3 HD DVD

http://cgi.ebay.com/HD-DVD-Lot-2-box...3A1%7C294%3A50

This ain't my own auction, I'm not pimping myself.

The box set on the right, with Superman Returns, Constantine, and 300. I have never seen such a beast. The auction is in Canada, where a few new and super-rare slipcovers have been found as well. Any idea what that boxset is all about?

Looks fake, well cheap at least lol. 'Action' looks very generic, while the rest could have been copied and pasted to make it look like a valuable set. But that's just a major guess lol. Could be authentic.

Never seen it before but it is somewhat of decent bundle (movie wise).

All Warner titles. Its possible its a Canadian 'exclusive' slip like Corpse Bride and A Christmas Story.

Maybe that "Action Pack" with Superman Returns, Constantine, and 300 was a special retail package for a large chain like Futureshop? I've seen special packs from studios in Costco, with 3-4 titles bundled together. In the photo it doesn't look like and "official' boxset like the Best of HD DVD Vol.2 on the left.

I never bought any of the Action, Family, etc, boxsets, since they're available as individuals. My "completist" interest extends only to collecting titles with unique transfers, encodes or HD content, and not to the packaging.

How exactly does it look fake to you? Is it because you've never seen it before, therefore it doesn't exist and is fake? I've seen this set before so I think it might have been exclusive to BB/FS in Canada.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking - an exclusive retail packaging. I've bought several blu-rays from that Canadian eBay seller, and everything was authentic, in factory sealed condition as described.
