I'm confused, about "Wizard of Oz" 70th Anniversary Collector's Edition.

Okay, Amazon.com has really got me confused as to which set is the real bargain? (I'm not focusng on the Blue-Ray edition). They advertise the The Wizard of Oz (70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition with Digital Copy and Amazon Exclusive Set of 4 Collectible 8x10 Character Posters) ~ Judy Garland (DVD - 2009)
for $44.99 which has four dvds and a watch. Right? (The video and description seem to imply that)

Now the confusion; the second listing:

Warner Home Video Wizard Of Oz-70th Anniversary [dvd/5 Disc/ult Collect/52 Pg Book/watch]
for $57.27 which definitely mentions the watch in the description.

So if I get a watch with the $44.99 set, why pay more for the latter set of $57.27???

Or, is there no watch with the first set and only with the second set? See my confusion. Also see that the second set notes that it ships and is sold by Beach Audio. What's up with that?

Who's on first, what's on second, I don't know is on third...

It looks like the first is an amazon exclusive which probably does not include the "when the lion roared" documentary which is the fifth disc on the other set.

New to Amazon? They've had marketplace sellers for a while. This is why you need to be sure you're buying straight from Amazon.

So the marketplace seller, is selling the $44.99 set for $57.27. So I guess both boxes have the watch and it's just a matter of discerning who's promoting what on Amazon.

Normally I'd see marketsellers listed as selling the same item as either a) used b)new within the context of the same listing, not as a seperate listing.

Thanks for the feedback.

Both sets appear to be the same. Same list price and same description. As was mentioned before the first, cheaper listing is from amazon, the second is from a reseller
