    Yes but that is the Jap version, are they going to be the same and what is the chance of there ever going to be a English version ?

    I can't get the italian site to load but my brother has the Jap one and it rocks. The Alien head is MASSIVE and looks cool on display. The quad set has the same content on the DVDs but with the addition of DTS. The gatefold quad box is different as is the print on the discs (IMHO the artwork is much better).

    MovieTyme is a rip off though looking at there prices and the Jap one can be had for circa £180 of e-bay. Italian one is a bargain if the content matches the Jap one :smashin:

    Anyone answer the question why? The first film is truly awesome, the second is very good, the third is a mess (although Fincher is a great director and did wonders considering the problems) and the fourth is crap. If you want something other than just the films why don't you spend your money on actual props from the movies instead of a piece of plastic from china. Try www.propstore.co.uk or www.movieprop.com!
    We are already being ripped off with RRP of £20 for a film without giving the distribution
    companies more ideas to rip us off.

    they take the money straight away and as italy is in the eu then there will be no vat to pay.

    and that propstore website - some amazing items and some truly amazing prices as well :eek:

    Thanks lazarus
    I can't help thinking that with this Italian version and a Dutch version planned as well,that there might be a UK version released soon as well.

    For anybody who's thinking of rushing off to buy the Italian version, Fox in Germany have also announced that they are releasing the Alien head on 21.04 to coincide with the release of AvP...No details of spec yet!! DTS??

    Bit of a late post but I would check out the tax situation as I'm pretty sure you will get stung for VAT and then import tax worked out on the item and the postage combined. You can call HM Customs as they have a "helpline" and they will tell you what you will be liable for. I can't find the number right now but they were actually very helpful when I called about some car parts from Japan.
