DDD has it for $75.55. during their 20% sale it could go down to around $60.

With the $10 Off $30 With Google Checkout offer, you can get it for $67.40 from DVDEmpire (plus shipping) or $64.83 from buy.com (plus shipping). Be aware you'll be paying upfront for something that won't be shipping for nearly two months, though...

That's saying the sale happens after the set is released and that if this price holds...

PGHFlyer 10-01-06 09:27 PM

Yeah, I think that DDD price will be going down to atleast the Amazon range - even before the 20% sale.

Remember this set doesn't come out til 11/28. I think the DDD sale will be over by then.

Pookymeister 10-01-06 10:23 PM

Can anyone confirm or not that the Richard Donner cut will be in this set? I've read that it will be , and that it will not - depending where im reading....

Jtnguyen12 10-01-06 10:32 PM

Super Ultimate Box Set = 14 Discs. It already in my wish list couple day ago & waiting for 20% off sales :)

MadonnasManOne 10-01-06 10:33 PM

The Richard Donner cut is included in this, the Ultimate Collector's Edition. It is NOT included in the Christopher Reeve Superman Collection (which is the 8-Disc set).

The Ultimate Collector's Edition is the way to go! I can't wait!

critterdvd 10-01-06 11:35 PM

Does the Ultimate Edition have 'Supergirl' cause I'm trying to figure out the disc count...

4 Superman: The Movie
3 Superman II/Richard Donner
2 Superman III & IV
2 Superman Returns
11 Total

Whats on the other 3 discs?

bhauge 10-01-06 11:38 PM

11/28 should be close to the time that AMEX will do their Wish Certificates. Hopefully they'll offer the 25%-off Amazon certificates again. This would bring the price down to $52.50 (assuming that the $69.99 price holds for a little while after release).

I went ahead and preordered it. But I'll cancel it if the specs for Superman I, II, and Returns are identical on the HD-DVD releases.

DrnknMstr2 10-02-06 02:44 AM

Do you guys think this will be the kind of release with incentives?
LIke a Best Buy bonus disc or something?
I couldn't imagine what else they could add to this already complete collection, but I am hesitant to pre-order this online just yet, to see if any of the chains offer anything extra.

animatedude 10-02-06 04:44 AM

wait guys....trust me it will be cheaper than this on the release date

reverie 10-02-06 08:27 AM

Question... if it is found cheaper elsewhere, you can still cancel the order up until it ships, correct..?

exharrison 10-02-06 08:36 AM

^Not at Amazon. Once it hits the "shipping soon" stage, it can't be cancelled. It has been better for me lately, but for a while it was sitting in that stage for a few days before shipping. I seem to remember it went into that stage during the weekend before Batman Begins came out. I might be wrong, though.

critterdvd 10-02-06 10:23 AM

if your order something on amazon with 'check' as your payment you can sit on the price, and when you want to buy it you just change your payment to your credit card...

Superman 1 on HD will only include the extended version. Superman 2 will only be the Donner cut on HD. Returns will be identical.

I'm going to have to get the HD versions AND the boxed set.

Can't use it on most pre-orders at buy.com, including this one.

(I don't know about DVDEmpire)

Trevor 10-06-06 11:28 AM

I'm thinking of holding out till closer to release, as I'm sure at least one retailer will have an exclusive of some sort.

Manzana 10-06-06 11:44 AM

I hope people don't mind me mentioning Columbia House here. I have a little over $100 of Funcash, and before the end of the year I've got to find something to buy with it or lose it. Since you always pay a penalty (full MSRP) and shipping with CH Funcash, I consider paying $100 of Funcash + $7.99 out of pocket shipping for the Superman Ultimate Collection [assuming CH will carry it] about equal to paying $69.99 delivered from DDD.

The real issue is I've had this Funcash for most of this year, and I still haven't found anything I want enough to use it. It seems like getting the Superman UE with my Funcash is my best possibility yet. Does anyone know of any reasons why doing it this way is not a good plan?
