Forgive me if the info is in the thread already, but I couldn't find it.

I already own the first collection, the sequel, and the TV set. So I am only gaining the cartoon collection and the head if I buy this, right?

Or are any of the discs different?

You get almost everything related to Planet of the Apes except maybe some missing promotional material. Also, all of the movies are finally anamorphic where only some of them were before. I hope this helps.

Try again, because it doesn't come up as backordered for me.

Wow, looks like there are going to be alot of Ape heads in the mail in the coming days! I am so excited about this set. I was looking at the other day at my local FYE and it was like $179.99 and I was just about crying! I can't believe the price of $81 at DDD!

By sequel, I'll assume you mean remake.


In general, your answer is correct. You gain the cartoon and packaging. But the discs for the 5 original films in the series are brand new -- with updated 16x9 transfers, more extras for the first film, and a longer cut of the last film. It's a pretty significant step up from the first collection that they released back in 1999-2000 or so.

It also has the advantage of actually saving space (assuming you don't care about the ape head). The discs themselves are removable from the back of the neck and are housed in a fantastic, incredibly compact package.


In short, if you're enough of a fan to own everything you describe in your post, you'll probably be pretty darn happy with this upgrade.

I was thinking the same think amigo..I was thinking of putting the original Apes box set, plus the remake 2 disk set, plus the tv box set in one package deal, it would be nice to score a good portion of the $81 for this set, nice upgrade also!

I'm hoping to get this tomorrow. I seem to get the bigger media mail boxes quicker than some of the smaller DVD ones. If not tomorrow, then Monday -- no mail Tuesday, the 4th.

It shipped on the 27th.

1180 @ 7:51 est: Since they have not shipped my order placed on 6/23. I will keep all 1180 titles in my basket until they do ship my order. I was actually thinking DDD had improved in the past year but now I'am starting to wonder?

I ordered on 6/24 and it shipped out 6/27. Doesn't look like they ship them out in the order they were placed.

And exactly what is this supposed to accomplish???

They're still listed as in-stock right now.

Dude - can you get them out of your cart - don't punish everyone else when your beef is with DDD.

Looks like they are out now at some other stores so this looks like a better deal each day.

I do not want to upset anyone but I ordered my ape yesterday morning 6/30 and they shipped the ape yesterday afternoon...same day shipping. Picked 2nd day delivery and it will arrive here on Monday. The only thing I can see is the people waiting for shipping is that they ordered something else that is not in stock..

Same exact situation as LASERMOVIES. Ordered mine on the 24th and it shipped the 27th. And that was the only thing I ordered. No big deal as it's not like I would've gotten it much quicker. On average, I get my orders 10 days from shipping which means (with the July 4th holiday), I wouldn't get it until the 5th (at the earliest). As it stands, my receive date range is the 6 - 11.
