I purchased this to replace a number of aging VHS tapes and as a £43 pre-order is exceptional value. Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Ratatouille are 2 disc collectors editions (though The Incredibles doesn't say this on the cover). Cars, Monster Inc and a Bugs Life all came with postcards - 10 in total. The final 2 discs contain 13 'shorts' and a documentary (purported to be approx 85 minutes in length). The disks are contained in 'slimline' cases.

Well that's the kids viewing over the summer holidays sorted!

As you probably all know, these are a set of top quality films so there's no disputing the actual quality of them (unless it's not your thing of course, IN WHICH CASE GTFO) but the value of this set is simply phenomenal.

Anyone who is not familiar with Disney's selling strategy, lets just say that the films aren't widely available for cheap, so to have them all in one place, for this unbelievable price is exactly that; unbelievable. To put it into some kind of perspective (all HMV prices); A Bugs life £30, Incredibles £30, Toy Story 1 £20, Monsters inc. £20, Finding Nemo £20....etc.

Fantastic value and a fantastic set of films. Also comes with 'The Pixar story' - a documentary about Pixar studios (an interesting watch for anyone looking at the industry itself) and a Pixar shorts collection which is also a fantastic set of films.

I love everything about Pixar, and for anyone else like me, this is a must have.

All of these films are absolutely magnificent in their own way. A truly great purchase if you don't already have them on DVD. I had all but 3 of these films on DVD, so decided to sell the ones I had and buy this. Only things is, the Monsters INC and Toy Story 1 films in this Box Set are 4:3 as opposed to 16:9, unlike my previous versions - so a bit annoyed about that. Otherwise, this is an excellent purchase. 8 quality films for £45 is amazing value and well worth the investment.
From now, I'll be buying films on Blu-ray though, but this is a great way to say goodbye to Disney Pixar DVD's! Save yourself the trouble of buying each DVD separately and get this!

Just to clear up a point another guy's made Bug's Life is not in 4:3 format. They didn't flip the disc and there they'd find the full 16:9 format of the original movie. Not sure how they've found a Toy Story film at 4:3 as well, as both are in full 16:9. So every movie is in 16:9 format and all the discs are stored safely in thinner DVD plastic clip cases.

So don't let the review below put you off - this really is one of the best pressies you can buy yourself or someone else this Christmas! The Pixar story & shorts are all excellent too and well worth watching especially for the history of the Pixar animation team in the early days.

This box set I recieved as a gift and have to say is one of the best ever. I am 21 but I love all the Pixar films and to have all but Wall.E in this collection is amazing.
Each film as nearly everyone knows are stella films and I shall not review each. However the two extra DVD's of the pixar story and the pixar short films are also brilliant additions. At £45 they are a true bargain as Disney DVD's can hold their value.

A previous reviewer 'corrected' someone by pointing out that all films in this collection are widescreen - this is not true! While 'A Bug's Life' can be flipped over for a widescreen version, Monsters Inc. is definitely 1.33:1 / 4:3, not widescreen, and there is only a single side to the disc. This was obviously very disappointing, and I cannot think of any reason why the widescreen version would not be included.

The specifications on the packaging confirm this ("Full Frame 1.33:1").

Will now have to shell out more for a proper version of this film. Buyers beware.

brilliant package - bought this for my girlfriend (28yrs old) and she loved it.
all movies are brilliant, and the package makes each movie a reasonable price.
can't fault the company - it arrived on time, in the condition they said (brand new) and had everything they said it did.
would definitely buy from them again.

I've been looking at this box set for ages and finally took the plunge. It's great. Ok, so it's not blue ray and I'm guessing they'll eventually release 3D versions but it's still wonderful. If you can get your hands on one, buy it.
