    I already have Alien R2 spec ed and Aliens R2 spec ed.

    Now I'm in a right mess thinking what to do. Is it worth getting the new 2 disc promotional versions from play247 which has both for £16.99 but BOGOF so £16.99 for both! And Alien 3/Alien resurrection ie all 4 for £33.98. Are these promotional versions the same as the retail versions?

    I'm assuming the new versions are the same extended editions as I already have (except for DTS on Alien). Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also there is an option with WHSmiths to deliver to your local store for NO P&P. I've used this everytime.

    Further each WHSmiths store has its own URL which deducts 10% from everything so Alien Quadrilogy is £40.49 DELIVERED. So finally should I buy the Quad at this price. I thought Alien 3 was OK but I haven't seen the last one.

    The new releases have 2 versions of each film on the disc mate so each Film Disc contains a version never seen before on DVD.

    Alien has the original Cinema release and the recent Directors Cut, Aliens has the original Cinema release and the Special Edition, Alien 3 has the original Cinema release and a Workprint release with over 30mins of extra footage and Alien Resurrection has the original Cinema release and a version with a different start and ending.

    Try http://www.whsmith.co.uk/stores/1676 or ask at your local store'

    Indiana - thanks - it looks like the spec ed is different to the new directors cut. I'm still torn as to whether to get the quad box or just to stick with the alien/aliens BOGOF from play247 for £16.99 and forget the last 2 inferior films. Are these promotional films the same as the retails?

    That's just as cheap as Dvdsoon, and without the risk of it coming from Canada and customs charges, just ordered mine.

    Thanks for the info.
