Right now it's right around $40 for the UK set. It was slightly cheaper back in late Sept. which put it around that $35 mark you posted.

I ordered it then but it has not shipped yet due to a pre-order title I had in my order. I just canceled the pre-order, so this set should be shipping soon.

Is the UK Superman set identical to the US?

Was wondering the same thing. And if the non HD material is PAL or NTSC.

The UK and US Superman sets have 100% identical content. The only difference is the packaging and how the discs are labeled.

Hmmm, a $2 drop. I'm hoping for a little more by the time release rolls around.

OK, I'll bite. How is the packaging different?

Judging from the user photos at both sites, the outer (blue) box on the U.K. set is just a slipcover, rather than the two piece, top-loading, "3D" logo box that houses the U.S. set. Can't tell from the photos how sturdy either of them are, though, or if they're made from the same weight of card stock. I went with the U.K. set today, as $40 is a preferable price, but still contemplating the U.S. set instead . . .

Rule out any questions about Region and/or language issues.

WBshop.com has it right now for $51.99.

Since WB charges tax, I think yesterday's deal still was better, plus dealing with Amazon is better than WB (or anyone else for that matter). not a great price, but for those that can't wait, tolerable.

This is just an observation, but it seems that products that tend to go on sale by multiple sites end up with bigger discounts come BF. Last year the Warner boxes were around 17 at Amazon, then 11.xx (after discount) at WB, then some were $8 at Target.com on Cyber Monday. Just a consideration for those that may jump on the bandwagon and later find a cheaper price. Of course, this is just speculation.

No tax for me plus f**w****t makes it a good enough deal from WBshop for me and much better than amazon.

I guess it makes sense, but never heard anybody say they didn't pay tax at WBshop.

took me a minute to figure out what f**w****t meant. (Also, last I looked e***** was 3.5% bringing effective cost down to around 50 bucks)

It's a rebates discount site, which I guess (for whatever reason) people aren't allowed to post the name of on here.

DVDtalk makes money by us going thru their links to the shopping sites like Amazon. So they don't like us talking about referral sites where we earn some of that money instead.
