    How much is this collector's edition going for and is it available for Region 1 & 2?

    I keep hearing about bookends and extra features but can't see much about it on any retail sites?

    Is it worth getting this or just the four disc version??

    the four disk set is 29.99. and the bookend version is 44.99, as far as i'm aware (guys correct me if you like) i believe that all the regions are the same.

    i've already made a post this morning about the bookends, they are very nice.

    Whats the packaging like?

    I have seen the pictures of it but is it strong enough?

    Does the fold out digipack have a outer sleeve like the R1 fight club/seven?

    yes it has a slip case, then a foldout pack inside for the 4 discs and a space for the booklet that comes with it. and yes it very strong, and the bookends are really nice, they will have books between them by about 5 tonight!

    Thanks, I was trying to think of what the type of packaging was called.

    What are the bits where the discs push on like? On my band of brothers boxset they have a push but in the middle that makes the disc come out very easily. I don't like the ones that are solid like the fight club and seven packaging.

    The trouble is I hate this type of packaging. I might have to come up with alternative covers and put the discs in two double amarays.

    Does that make sense?

    Actually no, the region one version has an extra fifth disc with an extended documentary on it. Also the region two extras have minor cuts in places.

    sorry i was to busy watching it last night to care. any cuts made in the extras is pointless anyway as most of us wont watch all the extras anyway. as for the fifth disc i doubt very much that its got much in it thats not covered by the two discs of extras we already have, when you have seen it you will understand why, plus i can watch it with a pal picture and no scan lines. i'll happly ditch the fifth disc to have the pal picture.

    The fifth disc is the National Geographic beyond the lord of the rings documentary and I think it has some extras on it.

    I got the 5 disc r1 set with the bookends last week, didn't really want the bookends but I REALLY wanted the film as soon as it was available so I went for it.

    I found that the extra 30 minutes really added a lot to the story.
