The recent Friends box sets promotion also had this sort of tag - I think it was 'promotional price' then though. The image looks the same as the boxes I have at home though - I reckon it's just a bargain.

That's really annoying as I literally had Futurama Seasons 2 & 3 delivered yesterday from amazon! :mad:

I'm inclined to return them to save £12 but then again I'm thinking it's too much hassle and postage will cost quite a bit too!

Cheers for the spot, I was just pricing up Simpsons Series 3 yesterday trying to figure out if it was cheaper in £££ or $$$ from CD-Wow. Just ordered from Play and saved £7 :hiya:

In case you haven't noticed, these are pre-orders, and aren't due to be released until the end of next month.

I'm going to take a chance on them, though, and hope they are the same as the existing box sets.

I phoned play and they said it's just a batch of box-sets they've been able to get hold of at cheap prices.

It's a limited offer so be quick - I pre-ordered Futurama 4 & Simpsons 3 :clap:

Thanks for the heads up :smashin:

Brilliant find thankyou. I buy the Simpsons sets the day they're released but I've been umming and ahhing re- Futurama for ages - not any more! Fingers crossed there's enuff sets to go round (NB I ordered one of each but I'm sure there are people on here that'll buy 25 copies... ;) )

Hi chaps

I dropped Play a message to ask about this 'promotional version', and this was their response:-

'It is a promotional campaign by the producing studio._ The information regarding item specifications comes directly from the releasing studios. Whilst we strive to keep our website as up to date and as thorough as possible, we are unable to provide any further details than those specified.'

So no further forward. I am hoping that these are as per the existing boxsets - i.e. not cut down versions, as I have just ordered Simpsons series 3 (one of the finest - at the top of their form), and Futurama series 2, 3 and 4.


Do you think if we all waft our credit cards, they will cool down ?

I don't think Play charge your card until they ship.

As for the box sets, it won't bother me if they are in cheaper packaging or anything. But if they are missing the commentaries and/or cut, they'll be going back.

However long it takes, double it, because the commentaries are great too.

Just ordered Simpsons 1,2 & 3 together with Futurama 1,2,3 & 4

Just under £112.00 for the lot, what a bargain.

They also do not take your payment until the items are going to be dispatched.

Me neither re- cheaper packaging but the special features listed for the promotional packs mirror exactly what's included in the standard release. Since I'm only getting them for the commentaries I'll be gutted if it turns out they're not included - but I can't see it happening, surely? They've sourced some sly boxsets from somewhere, not found a cheapo version (otherwise other retailers would be advertising this new and cheaper, extras-reduced release). Whatever, roll on 29-Mar!

Sounds a lot like the recent promo activity on Friends box sets. I'd expect to see lots of retailers able to offer similar offers.

Yep I ordered all 4 series of Futurama + Family guy season 3 to finish off my collection. Cheap as chips. Dont care about the commentary or the packaging to be honest.

As with friends I imagine they will have bumper stocks.

i e-mailed play about this and they said they are the same as the full prices ones but they won't be shipping untill the 29th march.

It seems a bit strange to me that they are advertising this so early as it will kill the sales of the normal price ones. I suppose they will get lots of advance orders though.

I would imagine other suppliers will run similar offers nearer the release date but are probably not advertising yet so they can still sell off some of their full price stock in the mean time.

Just to concur with what was said previously in this thread - when I called Play they told me that they had sourced the boxsets at a cheap price but they wouldn't be able to get a hold of them until the stated date (29th March?). So, I'm not sure if this is going to end up being a nationwide thing.

I put in a pre-order just in case this was a one off/they all sold out.:eek:
