    Just bought the set in store on Byres Road. This is the BD version with the correct video, etc., I recently learned.

    In the Special Edition the 25 fps video plays back at this rate, i.e. is 1080i50, rather than being rendered at 24 fps as in the previous release, I understand.

    It was sold as new and was sealed but with the crinkly looser plastic rather than with the very close fitting wrap. FWIW there were many sets all similarly presented and with the Special Edition marketing stickers on the plastic wrap. Maybe Fopp (HMV) got lucky in the Amazon Black Friday sales and is selling these on.
