Have they even announced a standard set in the U.S?

Digital has certainly been up in the air, there were a few posts here about it and I recall a listing showing an image that listed +Digital but it was reported that was a mistake. Nice to hear that digital is included.

And yeah, there's been no indication of a standard set that I've seen.

The standard edition is only a matter of time since the deluxe edition was somewhat limited, something like 30k copies.

Stupid question but does Amazon only charge you for a pre-order once the item ships unless their policy changed?

There's the usual authorization beforehand, but you aren't actually dinged until it ships.

I remember seeing something about a standard edition, that oddly enough still included the movies. But it certainly could have changed given they are still posting new info for the deluxe release.

I'm betting that the British release is a sneak peek at what the U.S. standard edition will be when the time comes.

Does it really matter if it's US or not given it's WB? Aren't most, if not all, of their BD releases region fee? Sems like due to far lower prices, people often go for the region free Euro releases even if there is a US version. Esepcially fi there is no digital code to consider.

It's all about the lower price for me.

Drooling over the black levels. It will be like watching the show for the first time given the TV broadcasts and DVD's were always average quality at best. Hell, when I first started watching this I was still getting it on a local TV syndicated channel with my over the air TV antenna.

I'm down for the Batman Beyond and Superman series if they are willing to put in the same effort.

Kinda thinking about saving some money and getting the UK release for this since itís like $20 less. I donít care about the digital copies or Pops anyways. The preview of the opening sequence is looking great!

You know, since the UK set may not have Digital Copies compatible with VUDU and all, I may just pay the extra $20 difference and get the USA set at $87 just to get the Digital HD versions.

Is the show getting reframed to 16x9 or will it remain a square picture?

That's my thought as well. But only if the US standard edition actulally has a code included. Right now it seems only the deluxe will have them, and at it's inflated price, if unlikely the standard editiion will only be $20 less. Quite possibly more like over half the price of the deluxe as the standard goes way down in price at different global retailers.

Does the UK set come in standard VIVA cases? That "Deluxe" edition is those crappy book pages to hold the discs. I like the book but not for storing discs. If the UK is standard cases I'll absolutely get that one instead.

Target's price jumped, so Amazon will probably go back up soon too since they were pricematching.

Ordered from amazon in case you are correct...I literally missed buying the dvd set from one of those infamous deep discount 25% sales back in the day by maybe 30-60 minutes (I was dithering and the next thing you know it was OOS).

It may go lower in price but probably not by much and amazon will most likely match so I will get the best price regardless.

Currently unavailable on Amazon.

They must have oversold their pre-order allotment. Especially at the $87 and change price.

FYI, seasons 1 and 2 are currently on DC Universe. I watched the 1st episode and the transfer does look pretty good. I'm guessing DC Universe will get the seasons staggered because WB wants to sell as many BD box sets as possible.
