    that's the extended version's alternate ending. there's a different beginning too although the beginning is rubbish.

    Thanks. I may see if I can get my hands on a copy. I have other versions, but I could do with a complete set.

    Has everyone checked they have the correct disk 3 "Aliens"
    with the theatrical and extended versions of the movie as the first menu.

    If you have only just bought it you can get it replaced yes. I meant for people that have it didnt know about the error, they are stuck with it, or bought it on the forums here or ebay etc.

    Got my £29.99 copy today and it has the correct disc 3. Does anyone have discs that a bit tight to get out. I may have to take them out permantly as I don't want buggered up discs.

    Has there been any recent examples of the Aliens film disc being the incorrect one?

    No offence OP but £30 isn't all that much of a bargain. You can get it for roughly that elsewhere.

    yes, my disk purchased from amazon in the last month.

    I wrote to 20th century Fox (email and snail mail), but they don't bother to reply, so I couldn't get it replaced. Amazon offered to replace it, but all their stock was the same, so that wasn't much help either. As amazon sold it to me for £15 delivered, a refund was not a good option. In the end I purchased the Aliens SE on it's own and substituted the disk at my own expense £9. (so the boxset cost a total of £24)

    Just because it can be bought at the same price elsewhere doesn't make it any less of a bargain. Where can you get it cheaper (especially on the high street)?

    I have seen it for £45.99 and up at the places I know and Amazon wants £54.99 for it at the moment.

    yeah, the disc holders are what i affectionately refer to as "squeakers" because they hold the discs so tightly that when you try and remove the disc you are greeted with that horrible nails-on-blackboard type of noise. On the other hand, sometimes they don't hold the discs quite well enough, a couple of my discs fall out sometimes.

    nice box, 9 discs, 2 all time classic movies and 2 fun popcorn movies (all of which come in normal and extended versions) and some nice dts soundtracks:- i'd say £30 is a bargain any way you look at it :)

    Some discs come out easily but a couple will not come out without beding. The disc are going in a new case (probably SVP's 10 disc case).

    I suffered from many cracked discs in Star Trek DS9 and TNG sets due to similar digistacks.
