    Probaley not a bargain to some people as most people think the only decent film was the first one but I just noticed that Axel Music have got stock of the 4 Disc Jurassic Park Trilogy Boxset.
    I have looked around and this seems to be almost impossible to find from alot of places, even DVDSoon dont list a price for it anymore and at £21.99 delievered this seems like a bargain to me :thumbsup:

    Saw JP3 recently, thought it was much better than the 2nd one.

    How about a link?

    Is this Region 1 as the only Axel Music I can find is Canadian?

    Yep its the Region 1 Canadian release but it doesnt have any French language on the packaging so its as good as the Region 1 US release.

    Why was the trilogy box set pulled?

    I can't find any info why anywhere.

    I've had R2 version on order from play.com since last year (priced £15.99)

    Is it because it's going to be re-issued when the 4th film comes out?

    No idea, I also had the R2 Trilogy Boxset on order but the release date came and went and Play have no idea when it will be available.
    But then I only considered getting the 3 Disc R2 release because the 4 Disc R1 release was so hard to find for a decent price but it doesnt matter now, had my shipping confirmation yesterday :)

    When Axel Music emailed me they said they had found a few sets and at that price its not suprising they have already sold out.

    Also, the have been extremely reliable in my dealings, recieved both Ultimate Matrix Collection and Simpsons Season 5 before release day and in excellent condition due to the amount of packaging material they use, cant recommend them enough but due to the shipping routes they use orders can take awhile to arrive but they are always customs free :thumbsup:

    I bought an R1 USA 4 disc and found it to be an excellent little set. Four proper Amaray cases in a shiny cardboard box. The additional extras on the 4th disc weren't mind blowing but it was a handy way of getting all of the films.
    I never did find it new however, so I ordered mine 2nd hand from www.djangos.com.
    It cost about $29.99 at the time and you can ask them to notify you when it comes into stock. Took about ten days for one to come in while I was waiting.
    Hope that helps some of you.

    Recieved my copy of the Boxset today, was packaged good but I guess all that time hanging around in a warehouse has taken its toll as the corners are all banged up, was quite suprised considering its a US release that it wasent made out of thicker card which seems to be the norm.
    Either way it looks good and I will sit down and watch the 'Beyong Jurassic Park' bonus disc tonight.

    I bought this in Virgin today for £14.99 - I was shocked at the low price and snatched it up immeditaley as it's something I have wanted for a few weeks.

    I got the JP and JP2 double pack last XMAS - Region2. Are there any noticable differences between that UK version and the new trilogy R2/R1s?

    I too have the 1/2 double pack as well and the discs for those films look to be identical in content - the 1/2/3 pack does have a 4th disc with extra extras covering all three films.

    The film discs in the Trilogy set havent been re-mastered, they are the exact same discs from years back just with new artwork to match the Trilogy packaging.

    Interesting to note, that your 'amazon-link' shows 4 discs in the picture, but the description underneath lists only 3.
    Has anyone bought this set from Amazon for the price shown? If so, how many discs did you get?

    Just to confirm it even more - the catalogue number on Amazon.co.uk is the same as that on the 4-discs DVD boxset I got in Virgin yesterday.

    Do you know if it was on offer in Virgin? as I have been after this set for a while, as my son"4" has scratched my other 3 disc's so I don't want to pay to much for them.


    Its showing £24.99 on there website.

    It had a sticker saying was £19.99, now £14.99 - I was shocked at the price and figured they must have been £10 out on their pricing so bught it before it changed back, if it was going to.
