Are the specs the same as the 6-disc box?

Awesome. Now is this the only way to get a complete box set, for all 4? So far I havent seen any others, and the steelbooks would be nice, but I wonder if Bestbuy will offer all 4 in a box?

So you want the PG-13 version of the movie? Or have they changed that.

If you click the link, it says that they're all rated R, so I'm guessing it's the unrated cut in this set. Also, Die Hard 1-3: are they the same ones that came out a few months ago to support Live Free or Die Hard or are they the older ones (the one with more extras)?

I'd get it if I already didn't have the 2-disc sets of the previous movies.

The rating thing refers to Blu-Ray, Fox couldn't get replication finished in time for Unrated on Blu-Ray. And the fact that these are the 2-discers is the reason anyone will care, because no Die Hard DVD release since then (and there have been many) has been better than those 2-discers.

I pre-ordered it, but FYI the shipping AND the tax AND the non-member fee added almost $10 to the price. But it's still better than what the old 6-disc box (now much less valuable) is going for.

So you can order without a membership? $10 is better than $50 for a store I never go to

Your best price is to find someone who has a membership and get one for you at a warehouse location with just local taxes added.

I thought this was supposed to be a CostCo exclusive? I just saw 4 copies at my local Best Buy a while ago with a $54.99 tag.

Yep, same here. Three copies, I think. Looked exactly the same as the Costco exclusive. Perhaps Costco had exclusive rights to it for a limited time, after which it was released to all retailers.
