Avatar Imagelikehagridonlyshorter says: I'm having a real problem with this. I've purchased the ultimate editions of the first six movies and the "deluxe" editions of 7 & 8. I really can't afford to spend $500 (or even Amazon's discounted $350 price) for a few hours of stuff that I've already purchased - in some cases two or three times. Are they going to release the "ultimate" versions of 7&8, or is this the only way we can get that stuff?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: More stuff for the speculators to sell at future Comic Cons...Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: I really really love this....Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: I said the same thing on another thread, likehagridonlyshorter, and another poster commented that Mugglenet said the last two Ultimate Editions were coming this Fall. When I had written to WB about it, however, they wrote that there are no plans to release them. I am disgruntled...!Avatar ImageMissHeatherGranger says: Wow. I hope I can get my hands on this! Its beautiful!Avatar ImageEmilyLovegood says: I so want that, but even with all my money, I can't buy it. I think I'm going to cry... Avatar ImageEvreka says: I agree with likehagridonlyshorter, this is really starting to bug me! Just HOW many times are we supposed to pay for the same material? :-( Paying for the new material, that's fine, I'd love to get 37 hours of never before seen footage, but why do I have to pay for the theatrical versions of all 8 movies plus their already released extra material yet AGAIN!?! I bought the three first movies on VHS when they came out, got DVD copies as soon as I got a DVD player, then the UEs twice - once from Germany because it was the only way to get hold of it outside the US originally and then Ultimate Edition DVD+Blue-Ray+Electronic Copy English less than a year ago and now this! This is getting really riddiculous! Avatar ImageEvreka says: Is there any notice on whether this will even be available outside the US, by the way? What about region codes for Europe?
