Re: $24.75 shipped. Universal Monsters Essential Collection Blu-Ray

Thank you, at one time I owned this set (I think I got it for ~$40) but my ex wife took it with her. $24.75 sounds very right and worthwhile for a re-own.

Actually, the majority of what she took movie wise were "horror" related. But yes, it is a nice piece of irony.

Good deal but I just can't stand those uk cases with the little red triangles.

Silly Question. If you use you Credit card from USA does it charge you a surcharge / Fee for using pounds.

The box set is now 14.39.

No, just exchange rate at whatever rate your bank charges. At least that's all my bank charges.

Super bargain. I paid more for mine, naturally. For this price, I am tempted to get another!

Great deal... even if Dracula is missing one special feature that the US set has.

It seems even if the card doesn't have a foreign exchange fee, they find some way to twist the rate to their advantage. I ordered it a while ago and was charged $22.36 plus a $0.67 foreign transaction fee ($23.03 total) by my Citi Thank You Preferred card. That was about 2 months ago. Very good deal so no complaints.
Once when my car rental in Europe proved vastly different than I was quoted, someone explained that the day to day rate has a lot of latitude and different cards can vary somewhat widely in the final conversion numbers on any given day.

But your collection will be more worldly!

Embrace the triangles!

Just curious but what is it?

I got my set in record time from them. This is a really nice set. I didn't read much about it before ordering but just thought it was all the movies. I didn't realize you got a nice size booklet and a set of posters with it (postcard size). Nice!

Thanks for the post OP!

Re: $24.75 shipped. Universal Monsters Essential Collection Blu-Ray

Thanks for the info. I will just borrow my Dad's copy if I want to listen to the Haberman one. I listened to the Skal one years ago when I owned the DVD. I don't remember the Haberman one being on there. If it was, I probably listened to it but just don't remember it.

Luckily I don't really watch extras that much anymore so no big loss for me.

Ordered. Damn good deal for $25. I got the original collector's set with the mini busts. I bought the Creature separately. Will be nice having all 8(10) movies on blu.

I am clueless why the identical USA edition is so much more expensive. I probably posted on the last page; I own this & I love it.

I bought this set for my dad for Father's Day. He loved it. We watched The Invisible Man that night which I had never seen. Pretty goofy but fun.
