I only have IM1 and IH so I think I am in for the big set. It looks fantastic.

As cool as the briefcase is, id rather have a simple box set for Wave 1. And I already own the movies. Oh well custom case time.

I want the case, but as I already mentioned earlier in the thread:
  1. I own all the Blu-rays except The Incredible Hulk.
  2. The bonus discs for Iron Man and Iron Man 2 are missing (which totals up to almost 6 hours of bonus material).
  3. No information has been made of what's on the bonus disc.
  4. $150+ is too much for something I already own.
My wife wants the set despite explaining all of that, but her defense is that it looks awesome and comes out the day after her birthday.

Ugh.

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

which Hulk version is in this set?

The unwatchable one with Eric Bana? (one of the few films I actually really wanted to walk out of the theater).

or the barely watchable one with Ed Norton?

I know they wanted to include SOMETHING for the hulk, but I don't think either of those films come anywhere near close to the quality of the other films.

I guess its too much for a reboot origin story of the Hulk that is a) faithful to Kirby's original back story, b) has Rick Jones, C) stars Mark Ruffallo, d) directed by Joss Whedon or Guillermo del Toro.

One can only hope.

The Norton one, which is heads and tails above the shitty Ang Lee Hulk (which is owned by Universal, before the rights reverted back to Marvel).

I'm betting they do a sequel with Mark Ruffalo now.

Now that the images are out, absolutely glad I've pre-ordered this one. Looks amazing.

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

If they sell a box set with that artwork and without the briefcase, I'll be interested, since I only have Iron Man. Even better that we won't have to re-buy everything, since it'll be a new set for the next wave (though of course they'll probably release a mega set as well).

There's the UK set, but:
-I don't know if it features the same artwork
-It seems to omit the bonus disc
-It seems to omit the 3D versions

(I know, that's a lot of omissions).

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

I figured this was going to happen. I already own them all and I'm guessing we won't be able to just buy the box separately or anything like that. Should have waited I guess but it sucks that I and others buy these films and others as they come along and probably will miss out on getting the full set because of it unless you want to buy the films over again.

I've pre-ordered the briefcase set. I already have Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Incredible Hulk, but I don't mind the double dip. However, I'd like to put the discs in regular cases so they fit well in my collection---or at least in a box-set the size of of my Blu-ray cases. (The special cases and toys are displayed elsewhere). I've been out of the loop for a while, where's a good place to go for these "custom" cases?

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

The only thing to make me cancel my pre order is if the feature length docs and features from the IM films aren't there. That's a deal breaker for me. Makes me really wonder if those are in that last BD.

I've only TIH in it's green BD case..so I'm happy that I'd only DD on that one. Never got the others cuz those IM films are way too overpriced by themselves.


And just for the hell of it..here's Tony Stark at ComicCon:

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

Moviestop is running a deal if you trade in the 5 movies (IM 1,2 Cap, Thor, Hulk) on Blu you get $60 towards the briefcase set, and $70 if you have a directors club card.

I don't even like these films (more of a DC fan) but I'll get this set just cause it looks sick. Doubt I'll ever watch a movie in it, though. Once was enough.

Re: The Avengers - Sept. 25, 2012

Well the big set showed up in my Gold Box yesterday so I pre-ordered it. I'm not too fussed about special features, but I hate to think that a set like this wouldn't be comprehensive. I'm also not a big fan of paying $60 or so for packaging, but that looks way too cool to pass up.

So the discs are in shitty cardboard sleeves? Yeah, that's money well spent.
