Let me be clear up front, i am a huge harry potter fan, and i like many others was eagerly awaiting the definitive box set release we all knew was coming. It was worth the wait, to all of you who think a better box set is coming, I'm afraid you will be disappointed. Warner home video have confirmed this is as good as its going to get. However they also confirmed that a more cost effective set, minus the memorabilia and extravagant packaging would be released following the sale of all 63,000 sets.
For anyone complaining about the price, i believe this future set is for you. This set is purely for the die hard fans, like myself. It is also worth noting that the 63,000 copy limitation applies to the entire planet, and so only a fraction of that will be sold within the uk. Also, all 8 pieces of memorabilia are exclusive to this set. Another horcrux locket was available for purchase through the noble collection, but the one in this set is different and of higher quality.
I also urge all of you saying that the set looks flimsy to view the unboxing video of the set, which shows the cast exploring the contents. It is quite honestly the most impressive, highest quality release i have ever seen on home video, justifying its hefty price tag.
I also find it absurd that several people have given a one star review on a product that is still weeks away from release! These reviews are done by bitter consumers complaining about the price, and are bad mouthing it for that reason alone. If you cannot afford this set, several other releases exist for you to choose from, be it the standard box set or the ultimate edition releases. Or you could wait for the future, more simple set.
Unless you are a huge, die hard potter fan, this set simply isn't aimed at you, so please stop complaining. Giving the product a one star review isn't going to make warner re-evaluate their pricing or marketing strategy, all it does is make this set look bad to possible buyers, which is entirely unfair. I am thrilled with this set, and am willing to pay the high but reasonable price for it.
