which Matrix boxset are you buying?

subject says it all, which one are you buying and why? Price seems a little steep for the one w/ bust, but the case / organization is pretty spiffy too.

Probably just the Regular 10 Disc Set. The Gift Set looks nice, but it also looks fragile and easily breakable.

I'm going with the regular version. The bust looks cheap and the book doesn't do much for me.

I'll buy whichever one only contains the first movie. No sequels, no cartoons.

The 10 disk "regular" edition. I don't like that plastic thing that the bust comes in.

Then you might as well hold onto the first release.

"neither" would have been better than whining

You don't understand. He is PixyJunket, whenever The Matrix is mentioned he has to post how much the sequels suck.

Oh and BTW he's right.

Get off your high horse. The cartoons are good.

Hmm.. all I said was that I wanted just the SE of the first movie.

Where is the high horse, the whining, or the declaration of suck in that statement?

PixyJunket: it would seem that you need to buy the "The Matrix/The Matrix Revisited" two-pack that's been out since Feb. 2004?

To everybody else: looks like nobody's forking out the extra $35, not surprising... I'm also getting the "regular" box set w/out the bust.

Getting the regular box set. The bust is cool, but if i really wanted it i could buy it on Ebay for around 30 bucks. I dislike the clear plastic case that it comes in.

I'm with Pixy on this. All I need is an SE of the first film, that's all.

Non-bust for me. The bust is good in concept but poor in excecution. The same goes for the packaging in the bust set (it all looks too fragile).

So regular ten disc set for me.

Regular... I have no problem with the bust itself, but I hate the packaging on the special. Already sold all my old discs in anticipation of the new Matrix.
