    I have done a fair bit of searching and there seems to be loads of threads about the various versions of Jurassic Park and the sequels and the best versions to get.

    There are quite a few of this boxset on Ebay for what seems like stupidly low prices....is it real? If it is a genuine release, does anyone have it to comment on the quality.

    You can buy these from Amazon JP but the prices are high and you can also buy Armageddon DTS version which i think sells for about $74 but i don't know how genuine they all are although i suspect theyre much more genuine than EBay ( pirate central )

    A Superbit boxset was never made.

    I thought there was a Japanese Superbit boxset ? The ones on Ebay seem to all be from Honk Kong and all look a little dubious.

    there are alot of R3 box sets which (unless you look for) people don't realise exist. I'm not saying that this one is real (IMO it is not), but if you look at some websites (eg dvdfromkorea.com) there are alot kicking about.
    The Asian market demands that these sets and LE sets are available and they are really only ever released for these markets. I buy alot of R3 SE's as they are often cheaper than their R1 and R2 cousins, and come in nice sets with higher specs.

    E_Bay is DANGEROUS ground for DVD's. I, personally have only ever bought two films on e-bay which was Closer (superbit R1) and The Running Man SE. Even then I knew the sources so it was ok. Personally I wouldn;t touch films with a bargepole on the bay.

    I agree you can buy lots of region 3 limited edition box sets but the only place to buy Jurassic Park Superbit DVDs or the Jurassic Park sequels on Superbit is from Japan and no where else in the world. So clearly these DVDs are fake
