Questions concerning the extended edition.... Can't Post

Well I am going to buy the extended edition of AUJ for blu-ray (NOT blu-ray 3d), and would like to know if I will still get 9 hours of bonus features as well as the EE of AUJ, also, what addition has the statue, and what is the price? Does it come with the DVD edition, blu-ray, or blu-ray 3d or all 3? One final question... Based on a link posted in the comments section about the confirmed packaging of the EEs, we know that the frontal pictures will be removable.... Thus the packages will look like the original lotr EEs, which is awesome. Will I be able to get those in any one also, or just a specific type or edition?

yes [In reply to] Can't Post

A) Yes you get the same bonus features across all three differing formats. Not sure why you think that you wouldn't ?

B) None of the gift sets have been 'Officially' announced yet - that's not to say they aren't true, just that nothing official has come from WB yet. So the price and which format has not been confirmed yet. (Edit: The German press release did mention it, but it hasn't been mention by anyone else)

C) I think what you've read in the comments section about the packaging is not true, there is nothing to suggest the image is removable. The pictures the person used to compare are two different sets from different regions, so could be completely difference products.

List price [In reply to] Can't Post

Even if amazon does not show it, the list price for the US giftset is $74.98.



The giftset will be only the 3D+2D BluRay version, meaning it has 5 discs.

Thank you [In reply to] Can't Post

For responding to my post. But sorry, I should have quoted the line from the op that revealed what I was looking for. I actually meant the link that shows that the pictures might come off of the packaging. Blush

I think [In reply to] Can't Post

The BluRay has more storage capacity, so they will probably split the film on 2 discs and the extras on 3 discs for the dvd.
