The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray set

http://www.dailyblam.com/news/2013/0...y-set-revealed.

Today Anchor Bay Entertainment, McFarlane Toys and AMC unveiled the design of The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-Ray Set.

The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray Set features a replica of The Governor's walker head aquariums seen earlier in Season 3. As an added interactive bonus, the aquariums can actually be filled with water and come with five walker heads that can be arranged in any order. Plus, the aquariums light up. The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray Set will be available through most mass retail stores later this year.

I got a feeling the prototype looks a lot cooler than the final product. Plus, I don't know if I'd want to "just add water" to a DVD case. That can't be good.

The concept sounds cool but I have a feeling in person it would probably not be. Plus putting water in the case doesn't sound like a very good idea unless you're keeping it separate from all your other Blu-ray's and stuff. On top of that I would think the zombie heads would start to look like crap and flake and stuff if they're in water.

What if it's just a tiny window of water and the heads are behind that (not in the water)? I can't imagine it will be like an actual fishtank.

It's probably going to make the set 3 times more expensive than the regular one. I'd rather use the money to buy other Blu-Rays.

But then the heads won't float.

2 tanks of water with the heads in it and the discs in the base underneath. its probably asking for disaster but as long as you don't have an earthquake and aren't clumsy around it you should be fine

I doubt they float. Probably stick into a peg or something?

As long as its not a decapitated female torso in a bikini. That would just be offensive!

I haven't bought a novelty Blu-ray set since I imported the Machete action figure set over a year ago and they release this? Fuck, count me in.

I'm surprised they didn't break it up into two releases. Pleasantly surprised.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray set

Would love to get it, but I am afraid my budget will only allow me to pick up the Reg BR version.

I have not watched one ep from S3 yet, the whole family likes to sit down and watch all the shows in 2 or 3 days.

That's how I took the photograph, based on the way the water distorts on the sides.

Thankfully AMC doesn't seem prone to that. Breaking Bad is also coming out in one set, and that was a much longer break.

/\ AMC wouldn't have much say in it. Sony handles the home video releases of Breaking Bad, and Anchor Bay handles The Walking Dead.

If they had decided to split the season, the first half would have been released prior to the second half's premiere.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray set

Does anyone know how big the aquarium is? Is it as small as a bluray case?

Looks close. If you look at the picture ardathbey posted the blu-ray case fits behind the two aquariums, and then maybe another 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" for the bottom of the stand.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray set

Received the Walking Dead S3 LE Zombie Head Tank today.

The tank is cheaper and smaller than what I originally thought it would be--I was assuming about the same height as the Zombie Head, and next to the head, it just looks weird. Proportion is nice when you're collecting a particular series to display.

The Zombie heads themselves are where the expense went. They look pretty good.

Certainly NOT worth ~$100. Luckily I had a lot of Best Buy reward zone points I was saving.

On a scale of 1 -10, I'd give it a 6. Could've been a lot more exciting.

For those looking to pick this up and have not done so yet, GoHastings has it for $74.99.

Mine is en route and should be here Friday.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Blu-ray set

i cancelled my aquarium/tank set, and will pick the regular version up soon. i decided to clear space and sell the zombie head, since the price it is going for is just insane for what it is, and really, this show has been so fucking bad the last couple of years, i don't see ANYTHING fixing the problems aside from cancellation, which will never happen.

considering how amazing the 2nd through 4th years of the comic were (the entire prison saga), the third season was a fucking disaster.

I bought this but I'm seriously thinking of sending it back. I bought the season 2 zombie head and figured maybe this would be as rare but it's not looking like it.
