Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: I've been waiting soooo long for this set, but the price is crazy!!!Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: I REALLY REALLY REALLY want this even though I have got all the movies... I hope there's commentaries!Avatar Imagehewy says: Love it but it is waaaaayyyyyyy out of my price range!!!!!Avatar ImageLegendMN007 says: Just per-ordered mine. Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: I'd love it, but I already have all the movies, and the price is WAY TOO MUCH!! I could buy a nice flat screen TV and Blu-ray player for my room for that kind of money.Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: I would totally buy it if they had a British version instead! I don't really want Sorcerer's Stone, I'd rather Philosopher's....Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: ummmm u kidding???? i luv hp but that price is ridiculous!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Have to agree with the above! Way too much money!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: The money . . . it's worth it. . . .Avatar Imagekellydofc says: I'm going to wait until I see something official from WB about the contents and price before I preorder. I have to hope that the price comes down and that they say what the extra 5 hours are soon.Avatar ImageMelly96 says: I so what it! it is so out of my price range though :( Avatar Imagezaucwrkexun says: It's soo cool but cost waaaaay too much. :(Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: Waaaay too much money, guys!Avatar ImagesoseLellata says: It would be worth it if they were releasing extended cuts of all of the films instead of just the first two - I'm probably going to wait for a set that includes all the extended cuts. Avatar ImageGrantus says: Just awful. I'd call it gouging. Even if all the disks had extended cuts, this is rather outrageous, and an insult to the fans. It was reported in the UK that the recently released DVDs of TDH 1&2 would be pulled from the market in early 2012 (article here): http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2011/oct/26/harry-potter-vanishing-dvds I'd guessed that they'd be releasing a "definitive" box set. Nice packaging (and very imaginative at that) but hardly worth the cost, and that kind of marketing smacks of avarice, which is so far removed from the message of the books and films. It is also counter-productive, in that it alienates future fans. I honestly don't understand the music and film industries: they just don't seem to get it. I don't mind adding to J.K. Rowling's wealth: Talent should be rewarded and she has both created a very positive model in her stories and has been gracious and generous with her wealth. http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/171-jk-rowling Now, if half of the purchase price went to J.K. Rowling's charities, I would consider buying it, but this is just going to the WB coffers.Avatar Imagesynesthete28 says: Preordered mine!Avatar Imagekrismiss says: I preordered mineAvatar Imageheartless_wench says: it is a lot of money, but you're getting a LOT... not just the nifty packaging, but also all the movies, extended cuts (would be interested if there are more than just 2), special features... I've seen 3 and 4 movie sets go for 80-100 bucks, so it's really not THAT outragous. what I'd be more interested in is, are they going to release an Ultimate version of 7.1 and 7.2? I have Ultimate BluRays of 1 thru 6... I'd like both 7s too.Avatar ImageGohandoMax says: Hope they will release it in the UK as well, in Europe to be specific, does anyone know? Because Amazon UK has not listed it, yet... Neither have they listed the Indiana Jones Quadrilogy set on BD.Avatar ImageGohandoMax says: I do not think that it will be a "definitive" set at all. The packaging will probably be the same cheap cardboard on the limited set they released las year. In that case it will surely fall apart. I will also be very dissapointed if there is not a commentary track for each film, one with the director, one with the cast and one with the crew, as with the lord of the rings films. I had also hoped that there would be extended cuts of each film, but no. The never before seen special features are probably the special features that came with the ultimate edition sets. I will buy this however, only because I really want it in my collection and still hope that it will prove to be awesome.Avatar ImageXyra44 says: I love the packaging, but as others have mentioned since not all of the movies are in regular and extended editions it's not quite worth all that money. It would be understandable if the extended versions were not available for all the movies, but they are (maybe not DH1 & 2). Oh well, I'll continue to watch the extended versions when Family Channel runs it's Harry Potter weekends and the regular versions in between. :DAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: Nice, but rather pricey!Avatar Imagenatalia96 says: I need this now!Avatar Imagejacket says: Crazy expensive! I won't be buying it, though it is extremely tempting.
