Great pics once again. I like the elaborate sets like this, MASH, West Wing etc. I've never seen Alias, it plays in reruns on the Space channel here but it seems like it's like Lost, you have to watch from the first episode or else forget it. Is it like that? Is it even a worthwhile show to watch (plotwise, not Jennifer Garner-wise)?
This is my dillema now. I'd like to get the Lost season sets, but when it ends next season, will there be an elaborate hatch box that'll make me regret my hastiness?

Looking forward to your Superman pics.

Sorry Cheddar J. Cheese, it looks like I won't be getting the Superman 14 Disc this week. The supplier, DVDpacific hasn't got it in stock yet. It looks like I may get it the same week as you guys. But if there's any changes and the box get delivered this week, the earliest I may get it is Friday. I'll keep you guys posted. The only Superman I can get this week is Superman Return R1, but since this is in the box set, I'll wait!

Yeah, Alias is one of those shows where preferably, you'd have to watch from the very first episode. My sister got me hooked, since I love the cool spy stuff like James Bond, Spy Game, etc.

Can't understand why you posted saying you would have it when you were buying from DVDPacific. They take ages to ship!

No worries, I won't be getting it for at least another month so I can wait Tongue

Yeah I figured Alias would be like that. I'll try to see when it restarts and start watching it then (I remember watching the Xindi episodes of Enterprise this time last year, so I'm guessing it'll be mid April? Oh well.)

Um, I DID NOT get mine directly from DVDpacific!!

My friend, is a DVD retailer in Sydney, and HE imports R1 mostly from DVDpacific, thus why I get access to many DVD's before any of you. He was the one who told me last week that DVDpacific hasn't got the Superman 14 Disc in stock yet. Sorry for the confusion, Chris. I don't even have credit card anymore. And I know what you mean. I used to buy from them directly, and yeah, they ages to ship, because they are based in Florida!! So now I pay in cash. It is so much easier!!

Splitting hairs a bit isn't it? You're still getting it from DVDPacific, and I doubt you have access to your discs before any number of other people. What's being based in Florida got to do with their shipping times anyway? I'm talking about the speed with which they dispatch, not the time it takes to get to you.

And Nic, no it hasn't been sent yet. The 'pre-order' price was still £45 the last time I looked (Friday), so the status can only have changed to in-stock in the last day or so. Hopefully they'll send it in the next 48 hours, but I have no idea how far down the orders list I am.

NEWS JUST IN!!! The 14 Disc set has arrived!!! I'll be back in a few hours to post the pics. I got a call from my retailer that he got it!! So I'm off to the city to go pick it up.

Not only did I get pics of the Superman 14 Disc set(which I now own!!), I also got to witness the King Kong Extended Edition Gift Set, The Forbidden Planet Tin Set, and Clerks II: 2 Disc Special Edition. See here in all their glory. Enjoy!!!

I'll never understand why some people are so obsessed with getting the occasional DVD a couple of days before someone else. This thread is a bit of a pissing contest...

now I don't know what your problem is..is it something wrong you go and buy stuff you want as soon as you are able to ????? you were posting and discusing this Superman Ultimate for so long now, posting about your order, about shipment..and when someone got it, you are frustrated...relax man..u don't have to be first all the time..and I think it is not important who got it first..Happy

You were much nicer to me before I turned down the offer to write for your website. The only reason I've been mentioning dispatch stuff is because I told Nic and a couple of others where to buy it for £44.99, and Nic expressly asked if mine had been sent.

I'm not in any way frustrated; I couldn't give a toss about someone getting a particular DVD before me. I was merely passing comment on the fact that there seems to be an element of competition and one-upmanship in this thread, relating to getting titles before other people.

Each to their own I guess, but I personally can't see the attraction of posting loads of pictures of a DVD and saying 'look, I got it first'. It would be like me posting photos every time I got a review title from a distributor and saying 'look, beat you all again!'... Actually, maybe I should do that.

I don't know if something is getting lost in translation, but you pretty much repeated everything my original post was getting at...

This is not about being first. I'm just happy that I finally got it. This is also if anyone has any questions about the set, feel free to ask. I am relaxed. I can be of help you know, if anyone has queries about any particular DVD release before they decide to buy or not. For some people to have or seen some DVD releases in store early actually helps.

i have to say I alredy forgot about that..and I can asure you that it has nothing to do with that my-site thing.

I still think you are great film fan...i enjoy your reviews a lot...and I didn't mean to atack you..i just see nothing bad, or competitive in saying that I have something before anyone else..for me it is funn to see that kind of photos, that kind of info...as Mark posted, it is a nice source of info for anyone who wants to buy that...and as for the elemnt of competition..isn't that what nice limited or exclusive sets are all about Happy...so once again, I have nothing against you..i like all you people here..so lets keep the good spirit up Happy
P.S> and as for my ofer and your resignation..i do hope that one day u'll write something for me. it would be nice to have one of your revs Happy Happy

Yeah, absolutely! 'Wink Like the forum that I'm based on, a lot of ppl collect LE and showing the pics does help many ppl who still decided to buy the item and couldn't decide just yet (a lot of ppl collect the package as well as the movie itself)...http://www.thaidvd.net/forum/upload/index.php?s...

As for Superman, splendid set! I'll probably get it next month...the double dip on Friends Box, King Kong and Doraemon Figure cost me a fortune this month already!

It's R2 - Japan and not new either it's been out sometimes now and at the moment out of print, very rare now - it's not even listed on BidYahooJapan??, my friend is finding it for me, but seemed only for a higher price and not much are available either...I think the outer box, French ver. is the best, but inside Japan ver. got the best premuim elements...

lol you got that from my based forum didn't you? I remembered buska posted this in my photo gallery of Amelie. Now I got the French and German Tin Case, they both are fantastic! But it would be unfinish business not to get the Japanese ver. too! If I have any news on it, will post for you mate!

Links for Amelie R2 Japan
Amelie @ Amazon.co.jp
Amelie @ DVDHeaven

As you know, Japanese LE is very expensive, I would be happy to even get a used for this one, as 'The Incredibles LE' I got of someone I know for a fair price and it's 100% condition!

Sorry to barge in...but my friend Oatato has a photoalbum of this box, so while you're waiting you can see his pic first then.

Sorry guys, especially Hossein. I can't post any other pics of the King Kong Extended Edition because I'm not buying it. I have only seen the gift set at my friend's DVD shop. I don't know if any other of his customers have ordered this. Thank you BoBoi for helping Hossein with this. Sorry I could not be of more help.

Next week should be very interesting for me. All my last DVD must have for the year will be available for me to buy (hopefully, fingers crossed):

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2 Disc Edition)
World Trade Center (hopefully the 2 Disc Edition, not the single disc edition!)
and...
My Super Ex-Girlfriend. These are the only three left I want for this year.

No, I won't be posting any pics of these. No need to. No significance whatsoever.
