TH:AUJ SEE Giftset announced in Germany! Can't Post

The German press-release for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey SEE has a certain passage which is quite interesting:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on five discs as a Blu-Ray 3D Set, containing the BluRay 3D Version and the BluRay version of the Extended Edition. Additionally, this set will be also released in a limited Collector's Edition with a high-quality WETA statue with Bilbo and Gollum.

Der Hobbit: Eine unerwartete Reise Extended Edition erscheint auf fünf Discs als Blu-ray 3D-Set, das die Blu-ray 3D-Version und die Blu-ray-Version der Extended Edition enthält. Zusätzlich wird dieses Set auch in einer limitierten Sammleredition mit einer hochwertigen WETA-Statue mit Bilbo und Gollum im Handel erhältlich sein.


I wonder if the US version will have this one as well.

Excellent News! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was very disappointed when the US press release didn't mention the traditional Weta statue version. I really hope this is a worldwide thing, i can't imagine why it wouldn't be.

My fiancee won't be pleased but I'm sure she'll just be happy that I'm happy...

Hopefully the collector's set will feature classier packaging for the Blu-rays.

I suppose... [In reply to] Can't Post

...the US press release did not mention the giftset because Warner wants to sell it exclusively with some retailer, like they usually do: Amazon, Target, BestBuy, WalMart or whatever.

I think will can tell from this that the Blu-ray will be housed in some kind of fold-out digipak. Doesn't look like an amaray

TH: AUJ EE Lackluster - Collector's Salvation [In reply to] Can't Post

A Collector's Edition in the US is the ONLY thing that will get me to spend money on the franchise until the Ultimate Double-Trilogy set of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, perhaps in 2015. With just one commentary track and twelve FEWER minutes of extra footage than promised, it is too lackluster without the WETA collectible statue.

Drat! Now I have no excuse but to buy this inferior set with just one commentary and twelve FEWER (not less) minutes added footage than promised. Thanks!

If you are logged into Amazon... [In reply to] Can't Post

you will see a button to sign up to get an email when it is available & it will work (just did for me). No idea what the price is though...

The price is alright too! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's 69.99 euros, almost on par with the US release:
