My brother got that exact one off amazon the other week for only $265! I was shocked when he showed me the invoice.

Only? I think it's cheaper to buy the individual releases. They're only like $10 each except for Deathly Hallows which cost like $15.

Yeah, just buy them separately. Sure, that fold out case is neat, but its a lot of money to pay extra for.

The negative reviews for that item are hilarious. They're all 1-star reviews from nerds that are punishing it for not being magical (pun not intended) extended editions for the movies that don't even exist.

I don't have the Wizard Collection, but if I did, I would probably give it one star as well (mainly for the ridiculous price). I could care less about the lack of extended versions. What the reviewers on Amazon don't realize is for the extended versions to be included they need to exist in the first place. I believe Only Chris Columbus opted to have extended versions available. Other than the price, my biggest peeve with the set is how unwieldy the whole darn thing is. It just seems so annoying to have all those pull out "shelves" to get to each individual book containing one of the movies. If the shelves were of a better material, that could be fine, but it's just basic cardboard. If I was behind this set, I would have designed it as a digi-book (similar to the Star Wars/Indiana Jones/Alien sets) with a compilation book of each Behind the Scenes books that were included with every Ultimate Edition. I would do away with the stickers and trading cards. I would also, not as important, love to see The Deathly Hallows edited as a single movie (with Parts 1 and 2 still included). If the collections was done this way, the price would probably go down and people could easily place it on a shelf with the rest of their movie collection.

In general, I would choose individual movies over box sets.

Guys, it'll never stick unless he learns it on his own.

Why? Because they're too bulky?

Yes, but mostly because I like individual movies to have their own case. Something like the LOTR box set is fantastic, in my opinion.

Indiana Jones is good too. And, Ghostbusters. But I don't mind everything being in the same case.

I was just posting a picture of what your post reminded me of. I'm not even sure what you guys are talking about.
