the first one is the DVD's only the second is the collectors edition (including the gollum statue). My question is, "Is the DVD content the same for both?" In other words, if I buy the $55 collector's gift set am I basically spending an extra $30 on a gollum statue??
Last but not least, New Line will also release a special Gift Set of the Extended Edition, which also streets on November 18th. Expect the same great extras above plus a Collectible Gollum polystone statue created by Sideshow Weta, "The Evolution of Gollum" exclusive documentary on the Weta Workshop and how the Gollum statue was created, a printed companion piece showing how Gollum evolved from pencil sketch to sculpted maquette to digital character, and collectible packaging. Retail is $69.95.
