Best HD packaging ever!




This has got to be the best HD packing I have seen! This is being released in France on November 15th.

Harry Potter Years 1-6 Hogswart Edition

This box set includes Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In a Hogwarts box set.

They should have held off and used that as the final set with all 8 discs.

That's beautiful but I agree with, dsa_shea. That definitely should have been saved for the final set with all 8 movies.

That is ridiculously fucking awesome.

Also, we should all already know that a set like this will be released again with all 8 films. At least, I really hope so.

Isn't Half Blood Prince going to be split into 2 as well? I dunno, not exactly up to date on all things Potter. Looking forward to watching them though.

That box was actually made future proof. There is space for more discs in that drawer.

Is that confirmed, emachine12, or just speculation? It'd be cool if true.

Anyhoo, none of us have asked the real question: how much will that epitome of badassness cost us?

Wish something like that was done with the Potter Briefcase/Gift Set that came out for Years 1-5.

Nice packaging on that Years 1-8 set. I'm reading through the books for the first time right now and watching each film as I finish

I'm not a fan of the way the discs are housed, but I guess with the protective coating BD has, it's probably not a real big concern.

Pretty slick, though.

That's gorgeous, but I don't want it. I like the trunk better, and my Fry's has a ton, so eventually I'll get that, even though it won't fit the other three movies.

Confirmed. The drawer was made to hold eight discs and this set only includes six discs. So you have space for the other two discs left in the series.

As for cost: Right now before shipping through Amazon France...about $250 US!

D'oh! I want it but that's so damned expensive. I hope it's not limited.

It looks cool, but I'm over the fancy packaging and realized I just prefer the normal Blu case.

Re: Best HD packaging ever!

wow that is real cool, i just might have to get that,and with it having two extra spots for the final two movies is even better.

i wonder if there is any chance warner bros will do something like this for the us as well.

For that price, it should have room to house about 250 DVD's and be big enough to replace one of my DVD racks...

Re: Best HD packaging ever!

I picked up the HD DVD's of the Harry Potter movies and they come in a trunk that resembles Harry's. I guess it is future proof too, but they won't be making the new movies into HD DVD!

Nice!

Wow, just might have to pick it up being the collectible packaging whore that I am. And I'm not even that big of a HP fan.
