Oh, well, if yours broke, I guess I'll base all of my purchasing decisions on your say-so.

I'm always amused by the "DON'T BUY __________" threads.

I have heard that the plastic in the gift sets is very brittle and breaks easily (most of them broken in transit to the stores) but that's not the only reason I'm passing on the large oversized box.

Sorry to hear that Universal screwed up packaging again. Who woulda thought?

This is sad. Universal does need to start rethinking their collector's edition packaging. I mean, look at the E.T. Giftset. I had to put some velcro on the box just to keep it shut. Collector's editions are supposed to have great packaging, that's partly what you pay for.
