Question about Ultimate Matrix Collection

I know the limited edition comes with a book and figure.....but do you think this is a price mistake??

Bestbuy has it for double the price....

No, there's been a price drop, it was mentioned in the bargain forum. It's actually $41.xx at overstock

Wow, I might have to pick this up (and I didn't really even like the sequels that much). For $45-ish it seems well worth it though.

Dear lord, if that stays that way until the next 20% sale (which should be sometime next month by my calculations) it would be $33

I wished they would finally release part 1 by itself with the corrected transfer.

I would get this set, but I don't like the packaging because the discs are on top of each other in the case. ugh

I don't really like the Limited packaging either.

Great price, but still not sure if I like the plastic case it is in. This one is going for only $3 more than than the non Limited Edition. Decisions.

If your concern is that they are laying on top of one another, rest assured, each disc is ensconsed safely in its own tray and there is about a half-an-inch of clearance between each one. I think it looks wicked on my shelf, personally.

I'm undecided about this. I mildly enjoy the first film and loathe the sequels. On the plus side, I love a bargain!

This would be more tempting had I not already purchased the movies by themselves awhile back. Is the content all the same, plus some, or is there stuff from the single disk releases that isn't on the box set? Maybe if it's a great sale one day, I'd get it and try selling off the single discs..

In Switzerland they were selling those for 50Chf (~39USD) about one year ago (it was before the other boxset came out) for one time we get a great deal before most (all?) other contry. I guess they really didn't sell well at the initial price...

And I bought one at that price

both editions are nice, but for the completist, I'd go with the cool neo doll version.

Wow, I wasn't crazy about the sequels and already have the single discs so I wouldn't spend $100 for the set initially. For $40 shipped though...hell yeah.

Waiting another ~3 weeks for this is oh so tempting, but the possibility of it going OOS is haunting me....decisions, decisions.

Yeah, would be nice to wait for the inevitable 20% sale, but they'll probably be selling like hotcakes at this price and then bye-bye stock forever.

Fixed

As a collector of all those Matrix busts I just had to make that small correction.

I picked this up at a local Costco for CDN$45...didn't quite care about the figure/statue/bust/whatever the hell you want to call it, i just got it for the movies.

Now i have to find a 10 disk box and a custom cover...

I bought the non-limited version of this set because I think the packaging looks much cooler. That holo-foil with the matrix code in a single box does it for my display. I thought these floating trays didn't look too hot and I'm not a fan of busts (the statue head variety ) either.

When is buying something you "loathe" ever a bargain?

Mine shipped on Friday Looking forward to the new transfer on the original, as I have been waiting for that to sell seperately.
