I'm unimpressed; this is Amazon's standard 30% off...it's the best price going right now but somebody (maybe Amazon themselves) will certainly improve upon it before release date.

it's the cost per title that matters. u think they'll sell it for less than $10 per title? ha =P

ofc... it's possible they'll follow these up with a SE just like they did the DVDs.

Well, they are selling the Original Trilogy Set for $29.99 for three movies. That is technically less than $10 per title.

When the Original Trilogy Set and the and the Complete Set were up for pre-order, they were the standard 30% off. Just before release, they went to 35% off. After a month of being released, both were available for 50% off. Since then, both have been available for 55% or more. In June they sold the 7 disc collection for $64.99 (6 movies + bonus disc), very close to $10 per movie (less than $10 per disc).

This new set will be the same. Anyone ordering it now will get burned. It will be 40% off within two weeks of release, and it will eventually by 55% off MSRP. So you pay $49 now. Wait till a week or two after release and pay $42, or wait a month and pay $35.

Everyone knows how Amazon works. Just last month I bought the Transformers Complete Season 1 on release day for $16.99. The pre-order price was $24.99. On the day it came out, they dropped the price $8!

Absolutely right! I nearly got burned on that very issue and managed to catch it in time.

This isn't exactly apples-to-apples, but I just today received my Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection (the 6 film set), for which I paid $52.04 during Deep Discount's supersale. So, we're only, what, about 3 months out from their release date, and I got them for $8.67 per title.

I'd still be happy enough to get these other 4 for $12.25 a piece; but since I've just spent a whole bunch of money on a bunch of other stuff I probably shouldn't have bought right now... I'll just be patient and wait for the next deal, whether it's better or worse. lol.
