    Amazon Germany is doing the complete Babylon 5 and its feature films for just £60 in a limited edition tin. There is 36 DVD's in total. It does not have Crusade.

    Audio is in English as well as English subtitles.

    Anyone know what the difference is between this and the Babylon 5 Complete Universe set ?

    Apart from the HUGE price difference!

    The only difference between the two sets is that the UK version also includes Crusade.

    It does look like there is room for Crusade at the end of the tin.

    It also looks like there is 36 DVD's (5 seasons x 6 DVD's and 6 DVD's for the films) and not 41 as that would have included Crusade being 5 DVD's.

    I guess the biggest difference is that this German set doesnt include Crusade but you do get a nice tin, hat, booklet and poster and from the review it looks like there is room for Crusade inside the tin so even if you had to buy it seperately you would still be saving £50/60 compared to the UK set.

    EDIT: Beat me to it :)

    Neither can I. The site works the same as other Amazon sites. You could always babelfish or translate it in google.

    For those who have got the set, check you DVD's. One person so far has every single DVD scratched. I hope this is not common.

    How would someone contact Amazon Germany about it especially as I don't understand a word of German?
