"Die Hard Collection [Blu-ray]" Lightning Deal

All 4 Die Hard movies for 39.99! Sounds like a decent deal.

Damn, that's the cheapest i've seen it, other than BF when it was $37.99. If I had the money, i'd definetly get this.

Don't know about the issue with the first two but the 4th is indeed the rated version unlike the dvd set which has the unrated version.

It's not just the box, that's how Fox release LFODH on Blu-ray.

I'll stay with my 8-disk Ultimate Collection DVDs for now. Do all the bonus features even carry over to each Blu-ray movie?

Die Hard drops the Cutting Room feature along with the still galleries.

Die Hard 2 drops the visual effects comparisons.

Die Hard With a Vengeance remains in-tact.

Live Free or Die Hard remains in-tact, but drops the Unrated cut.

While it could've been a more complete set, most wouldn't notice nor care about the deletions from the special features (except that the "Cutting Room" feature was one of the biggest chunks of the first film's second disc --- a very cool bonus feature that would've been magnificent with Blu-ray technology).

The Unrated cut of Live Free or Die Hard is a mixed bag, lots of alternate takes plus added CGI and profanity that was originally muted from the theatrical PLUS profanity ADR'd in specifically for the new cut.

For $40, I bought it. Can't beat $10 a disc. I've seen Die Hard 2 and Live Free on Blu-ray at a friend's house and they looked and sounded fantastic.
