    i can confirm that the case for Return of the King is much thicker in the collectors edition (with Minas Tirth) than the stardard 4 disc edition. i have examined both of them very closely and it is very very obvious when you pick them up.

    be warned.

    It was the same with the first two Gift Sets, for some reason on R2 they only give the better quality outercase with the Gift Set and just use a very thin card to make the outercase for the standard edition, thats partly why I got the Gift Set, that and the bonus disc.

    It's the reason I imported mine from over the Atlantic, plus it was cheaper. :)

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get the R1 premium slipcase that holds all 3 EE's in this country?

    Im not sure about the slip case. There is a little coupon inside the R1 box but it says its only valid in the states :( I bought my mum the trilogy of extended editions for christmas and was gonna nick the one off hers if she didnt want it, but it has the bbfc logos on it :mad:

    it's weird I got fellowship and two towers in the gift set on region 2 and got the thicker card for the outer cover case for thedvds.
    BUT
    I ordered the Return of the king on region 2 with the gift set like the other two I've got and it came in a thinner card like if you bought the extended one on its own, but the gift set came all sealed, have they put the thinner card one in by mistake?

    is the region 3 thicker card, than the region 2 if so I can sell off my region 2 and get it with thicker outer card so they match with the other two.

    My R2 Gift Set came with a thicker outercase for the 4 Discs so they must have put the wrong type in your Gift Set.

    I would want a replacement as getting the ticker outercase is part of the Gift Set so if you didnt get it then you didnt get a complete product.
