The Twilight Zone Blu-Ray - Complete box by Christmas?

The Twilight Zone Blu-Ray - Complete box by Christmas?

So Amazon has Seasons 1-4 of The Twilight Zone on blu-ray at $46.49 each this week. It looks like they may have sold seasons 1-3 at that price back in May of this year, and I'm sure they will do it again. For now I am sticking with my DVD "Complete Definitive" collection, but I have read enough good stuff about the blu-ray releases to decide I am eventually going to upgrade. If one were to buy these 4 sets now and eventually get Season 5 (due on August 30) for the same price at some point, that's about $230 total.

I imagine at some point there will be a "Complete Definitive" blu-ray collection of all 5 seasons as well, which is what I suppose I am waiting for (even though it is tough to pass up the single season boxes at $46 each!). I just looked on Amazon and season 5 of the "Complete Definitive" DVD set came out on December 26, 2005, while the full, 5-season box came out October 3, 2006, so about 9 months later.

Any guesses from TZ fans here as to when a full, 5-season DVD box might come out--and what it's price might be? Considering the "Complete Definitive" DVD set could be had for about $100 within a year of its release ($80+ now from Amazon Marketplace sellers for a new copy), it would be surprising to see the blu-ray set as high as $230 for very long--$150 seems more likely, but probably not at first. Since I am happy for now with my DVD set (haven't yet even watched through it all), I am inclined to pass on the good deal from Amazon now. I would appreciate if anyone has thought this through and thinks I am way off base.

BTW, one good thing is that for the many that have been buying the sets as they are released (which is what I usually do with my favorite shows, but something I am trying to resist of late), at least if the DVD set is a guide, there won't be anything much extra in the box set when it does come out--the DVD set included the book "The TZ Companion" which is available elsewhere.

Thanks.

i'm having enough problems getting the bluray individual season sets. I don't even want to think about how much the whole set would cost.

Which season has the episode with Robert Duval when he transports himself into the doll house with some woman living there? I haven't been able to find that episode yet.

Mine arrived yesterday...I was expecting this to be an Amazon BF deal for about $200 and was very disappointed. To be able to grab these at just over $30 a seaon was a very pleasant surprise.

I know it's an old post but if you're patient and wait for good coupons to show up, like at Barnes & Noble, you can pick them up for $30-35 if you missed the sale.

According to Amazon a box set will come out on June 5, 2012.

$339.99 for a box set?

Holy schnike!

I own the Definitive edition so this better be loaded with new extras for that price.

Those look like the same sets that sell individually, only this time in a pretty box. If you buy them individually, you could pay over $300 but this will probably jump up and down in price like every other time they've sold them in the past.

Anyone paying $339 is getting ripped off, as each of the individual sets have been available for under $50 at one point or another. I can't see any new extras being added, the current sets are jam-packed.

I'm hoping for a GB/lightning deal @75% off making it a cool $100. or $20/season.

I imagine most people would be. I can't see Amazon offering that insane of a discount though.

I'm not surprised they're doing a Complete Series set. That's what I've been waiting for, personally.

Now to find a REALLY good deal on it.

I've been holding off for a complete box set so I am very happy, but I will bide my time until there is an affordable sale price for me.

I've been able to buy or obtain the first three seasons separate of course. But I have saved a little bit of money by having family or friends buy me a season for Christmas / Birthday which cuts down my total cost of the series. I could never afford to shell out $339 or whatever the cost is for the set all at once.

Yea, great news but I'm holding out until there's a significant price drop. Took me too damn long to get all the DVD sets, so I'm in no rush here.

The cheapest way to acquire the Twilight Zone on Blu-ray is importing the sets from the UK. Identical discs with slightly different packaging.

I had heard elsewhere that they were either region locked or there was some other concern about them not playing on american equipment. Have I been led astray by this casual acquaintance of mine?

You've been misled and bamboozled. The UK Twilight Zone releases are coded for all regions.

In that case, to the inturnet! (Which is, I assume, the British spelling of internet.)
