Packaging / Design

The outside is a pretty standard slipcase when you take away the obvious rarity-factor. However, you'll also notice that there's a small piece of cardboard attatched to the inside, making it custom fitted for the particular purpose of holding the CD soundtrack case in position.

All in all, the case looks good but if it hadn't been for the re-calling issue, I doubt it would've been to much of a trophy set. Still, a definete plus for the inclusion of the 96 page book.


Disc contents / Extras

This might not be the best set out there feature-wise, but it's really quite a close call as the different editions really stand out on there own with pretty unique features on most every region. This is the only set so far that includes the soundtrack CD, and for this, it's a big winner in my book.

The dvds also come with several lengthy documentaries as well as an audio commentary and a couple of featurettes. In the end, I guess it pretty much covers everything you could want in a deluxe edition.


Sidenotes

This is the original Deluxe Limited Edition. This set was availble for pre-order but was re-called due to rights-issues (on the book or soundtrack, I'm not sure exactly how it works) just a few days before the release date. However, a few sets we're shipped or sold prior to the release date, making this a very unusual set.

Yep, been thinking about the UK digipack as well. :)

I've got this sucker & am a proud owner. The UK has another 3-disc set however (also got it), where the 3rd disc has 2 1/2 hours of exclusive extras not on the R1. You should check that one out too as it comes in a nice case.
