    I checked the UK Amazon site a couple of weeks ago and they showed all seasons of the X Files would be re-released this month in digipacks at a price of something like £35-£39.

    Just checked again yesterday - and again today - and there's no longer any sign of those sets. All they have are the full price versions.

    Has Fox cancelled the cheaper promotion or postponed it?:(

    I've read on another forum that these have now been cancelled.

    I think most of the people there are now ordering them from www.dvdcrave.com . Not sure if I really fancy R4's though despite the low price.

    Hi, I recently received series 5 from DVD Crave at a cost of about £36 all in. Whilst I was very pleased with their service I personally found the pakgaging to be crap (in a word) - especially compared to the original releases. It is very cheap looking with gaudy colours, the retaining plastic on the amarays is like shrinkwrap and is all crinkled and the box has a details leaflet stuck on with tape.
    I think I will stick to buying the original collector's editions s/h.

    thats strange dluckman

    i've got seasons 1 -7 (so far), and season 6 is the region 4 version. Also got a R1, and the rest are R2. Now all are in the original 'classic' packaging, and there is no quality difference at all with the R4 one - as excellent as the others (packaging and disks).

    :confused:

    My season 6 is in the original digipak (fold-out) type box, so i guess i must have got lucky then. I'd have been well pi**ed off if it had been different
