thanks bobi . nope Mark
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.

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!

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!
BoBoi,

We love you too Chris. What will we do here without you?? Or better still, what's good of DVDactive without you, Chris??
Nope, no argument, just expressing an opinion. I love all you guys (and gals) Wink
Yay I started another arguement! Whoha!

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!

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...


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
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.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, perdy. Thanks a lot for posting, can't wait to own that set (first time I'm double dipping, second time will be Blade Runner Tongue)
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!!!

Phew! So many great pics!!
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.
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!!

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.


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.)
Chris, has yours been posted yet?
Can't understand why you posted saying you would have it when you were buying from DVDPacific. They take ages to ship!

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.
Another member from an Australian TV/movie forum that I also join, has reminded me about the Bonus Disc that comes with this set. He got me thinking....Where the hell is it? It's not in any of the Season sets. or in a bonus sleeve. Finally, after fiddling around, I found it. The people who created this has made it really something, by hiding the Bonus Disc under the fake base that holds all Five seasons. Very Nice.

Here is some more pics to explain the above.

http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f379/Mark777d...
nice ste Mark..although I don't like the show..it still looks cool...as for the Superman Set..they've moved Polish R2 premier to...the new date is 24 November..
Good news. I finally got my Alias Rambaldi Boxed set. It is a Limited Edition out of 40,000. Bad news on the Superman, as the only Superman available next week is "Superman Returns" SE. Therefore, I'll probably get the 14 Disc the same week as you guys. So no point to show them here, unless I get them sometime next week.

Anyway, here are some exclusive pics of the Alias set!! VERY COOL!!

I like the mini season sets. Look like your mini address book. Very cute!!
got the KK set for $55.75 from Amazon US

Ofcourse plus $8.97 for shipping to Thailand for 2 items (Friends and Kong). Fairly cheap shipping fees as always for Amazon, I think! It's probably the same as the UK one, like Matrix + Neo Bust!

But HMV does a good delivery. I ordered once from them last year when I spent my time in the UK!
Is the Kong set you're getting the same as the UK one? Is it any cheaper? (Cheapest I've seen it for is on HMV's site for £31)

that's a wise choice, this month i'm going with my 2nd FRIENDS box and King Kong Gift instead, looking to get the Superman Set later, would be nice to see the real pic from you mate!

Lately, I've been addicted to the 'Doraemon' figure set, anyone else collect the items?
DAMN YOU!

sorry dude..was to exited to see the pics..i mised it..but stay cool Happy

and maybe someone knows, do the R2 editions also come in slimline DVDs ?? or in regular 2-disc amarays.

P.S thanks for ino Mark
Haven't you been reading what I said? They are all in slimline DVD's double sided.

Yes, there are booklets - but they are actually those inserts you find in normal amaray dvd's. One for each Bond. Plus one promotional insert for other movies.
What is the packaging Mark..are this normal double-amarays...and are there any booklets inside (i see some under the main box..but not sure)
It looks like Sony is the one who remastered all the Bond movies before they were eventually owned and distributed by Fox. I was watching one of the Bond films, and it had a wide range of subtitles (Korean, Chinese, etc.) that are only ever featured in most recent DVD's by Sony Pictures. Funny that Sony did all the hard work!!!

great sets....love every Bond...
unfortunately i'll have to buy them separetly...couse I can't aford to buy whole collection at once (not to mention the brifcase set)..and here in Poland the box sets you have contain single-disc versions of every film..not 2-Disc like in US ...Sad

But i'm still goin to buy every one..cant wait Happy
They get around more than Bond I think...
It's 20th Century Fox who owns them now. Phew!
Damn! Pretty good. I like that art a lot, and the fact that they are smaller. Good job MGM/Sony/Whoever-owns-who-now. Grear pics, thanks for posting. It ALMOST makes me want to go out and buy them, but I won't Tongue

excellent stuff mate! got a couple from japan coming in this week wotw/ wallace & gromit etc.
Nice, but did it self destruct after viewing it?

Now that would be an original feature to tie it into the movie.
I'll be posting pics of the 007 sets too. Should get them either tomorrow Tuesday, or next week. The best is yet to come...The Ultimate Superman 14 Disc Boxed Set!
I can't wait for this, and the 007 Box Sets.
Oh okay. Thanks Mark Happy
No. Very few stores sell Region 1 Discs. And they are a bit more expensive than buying online. Hence why I get them earlier, not after the release date.
Looks pretty cool, definitely buying this. It was the best Mission yet by far.
Good Looking set!

So Mark, a lot of shop is AUS sell R1 dvd?

It's Sydney very soon for me!
sweet.
