Is it me or does it appear that we in the UK are being looked over yet again!!! The U.S. get this amazing box set, and it appears, we in the U.K. get 3 shoved in a rubbish box ( if recent pics are to go by!!). Why do we constantly get shafted by the distributers!!
From what I can see, the US 10-disc version only has that many discs because it contains the films on blu-ray, DVD and also has digital copies. So if anything, we have it better here in the UK because we won't be paying extra for redundant versions of the films. The only thing that's different is that the US box is in the shape of a wagon.
And what about Toy Story 3 3D version??? Will that be included in the box set?.... or i take it we buy this box set then 2 months later...... hurrah!!! Toy Story 3D boxset is released, oh more money please!
The point is, I would just like to have the choice. To me, it is all just a money making scheme, and correctly so, yet another version will come out shortly. Toy Story 3 has made so much money now. It wouldn't cost them that much to churn out another 10,000 of limited edition stuff for each country and give people the choice, as well as, making each edition available at the same time. But, of course, how silly of me, that would mean they would not get so much money in their pot!!
I agree with M. Finch on this one. The wagon set is rather disappointing, it comes with nothing special aside from the wagon shaped box. There is no additional material, everything included already comes with the standard versions.
The wagon set has ten discs, four of the discs are blu-ray (One for Toy Story, One for Toy Story 2 and two for the standard version of Toy Story 3) and the other six are DVDs which have the movies on DVD format and the digital copies.
Yep, I agree totally with everything you say, BUT...I think you're missing my point. I would just like to be given the choice in this country. I feel we are constantly overlooked. That is the thing which annoys me.
I live in the states and I've seen the 10 disc trilogy box set. It can be described in one word-CHEAP! The "good people" at Disney got a flimsy plastic box slapped it with stickers and more or less tossed 10 discs inside. It comes with no blu-ray cases whatsoever and nothing else inside that most "Toy Story" fans don't already own. I plan on pre-ordering the UK edition, I just hope it's region free.
I could have sworn that when I put my pre-order in the blurb stated it was a 10-disc set for the UK, with DVD and digital copies. No biggie on the DVDs, really, and I still have my decade-old Ultimate Toy Box US release with the gorgeous packaging, but I'm a bit miffed to not have the digital copies for my iPod. I suppose I could rip the DVDs for the first two, but that still leaves me down a portable TS3.
It would be nice if the black spine for TS3 matched the blue ones for the first two films, too.
I think you're missing the point here people. The reason why there is a 10 Disc Box set is because there is still no definitive format. I personally buy everything on BluRay but still like to have the Digital Copy for my iPod. When my family watch movies in their bedrooms or even on portable players they use DVDs. The 10 Disc box set is obviously for consumers that require all three formats, there is the demand for this as a lot of high end films are now released with a choice of single, double and triple play releases. I regard myself as such a consumer and again am very disappointed by this release not happening in the UK as I was with the Watchmen Ultimate Edition. The box really means nothing and personally I think they've done rather well with it, after all it's a kids film right? ;-)
