It's been as low as £24.99 for a short time in December (see the Camel Camel Camel Firefox add-on) which was when I got it.

Also, I and many others have region free DVD players which solves that problem.

Not a problem for me either. Just mentioned the region locked disc in the interest of full disclosure. I could definintely see the price on this box set dropping further again. It had been 34.99 over the past few weeks though.

My Alien Anthology set arrived today, 9 days after ordering it. It's got nice packaging -- I had expected just an Amray case, but it comes in a nice shiny slipcover with the following warning on the back :

Can't wait for THAT.

For those following my Superman adventure, I contacted Amazon UK on January 10 (three weeks after it shipped) to tell them I didn't get it yet, and they sent me another set. I finally received a set yesterday! Although I think it might actually be from the original order based on the order number (the replacement was sent out under a different order). I guess I'll see what happens.

And I got mine today. My bank did add a 46-cent "conversion fee."

So guess what I got in the mail today? Yup, a second Superman Anthology. I don't know why the original copy took four weeks and the replacement only took a week and a half.

I don't know how US customs works, but I know here in Canada they do "spot checks" and so some things arrive very fast while others take forever.

Nice deal from another thread. I'm tempted to blindbuy based on the good buzz.

Downton Abbey - Series 1 UK - $14.41 shipped - More features than US version

Good deal, but do note that if the DCs interest you then you most probably will not be able to redeem them outside of the UK/Europe.

There are 2 alien sets listed on amazon uk. Anyone know what the difference is other than the artwork?

According to Amazon.uk converter, it came to $24.95 shipped
I don't think we had any further discussion about it, though.

You can, you just need to create a free UK Itunes account.

Go download something free from the UK store and you won't need to enter in any credit card details while registering. Once you've registered, you'll be able to download the digital copies and view them in your library just like any other ones.

Ok, didn't know that. Nice tip. Thanks! I've downloaded free apps before, but never tried DCs.

It's actually going to be about 25 shipped, not 20

Also, do we know if this is going to be region free yet?

One of them only has the 4 movies (apparently), the other has the 2 supplemental discs as well. No brainer to not go with the latter as the price is 1 pound difference.

Twilight Zone - Season One [Blu-ray] [1959] $15.49(I do not know the alt code for pounds) with shipping to the US $25.96. Not bad, order Aliens last month it all worked out.

I did not know there was a thead going on about this. When I bought it on the 14th it was 12.91 at the time.

Technically not a box set, but the 2-disc blu-ray of Cleopatra has dropped to about $14 with shipping. Supposed to have a gorgeous transfer and is region free. --Peter

Season 2-3-4 have [REGION FREE] in the item title, which is usually pretty accurate. Nothing on seasons 1-5, but I would find it a bit peculiar to lock certain seasons and not others.

I paid about £2 more for it, oh well. Still looking forward to it. Seems like a steal at $14 shipped.

I'd been hoping this would get a box set release ala Ben-Hur or Ten Commandments. But this price is pretty tempting.
