That seems to show what the main source of this discussion is. or at least why the two sides are getting a little frustrated with each other.

I think that there is a huge difference in being disappointed that the Hobbit EE is not exactly like the LotR EEs, including the same features and what not, and that this particular release is terrible or sucks or not worth it. Whereas some are combining the two (not all). Just to me, those are two different things.

This set still contains a huge amount of material for one film. Compared to other bluray sets, this could be considered a lot of content for a whole trilogy of films.

At the end of the day this set contains 13 new minutes, a director's commentary, and 5+ hours of documentaries. I can't even think of anything that comes close to that, including the 6 film Marvel phase One set and the Star Wars 6 movie set. If you were to consider the LotR EEs the greatest home video release ever (and I personally do), then based on what is listed then the Hobbit would fall to number 2 on that list. It's still providing more than 99% of all DVD/Blu ray releases. Is it disappointing that its not a mirror image of the LotR sets? Yes, sure it is. But this is still quite an impressive release.
