Spinal Tap 4 Disc LE?

First all, my apologies if this has been discussed already, I did a search for "spinal" but couldn't find anything relating to this.

I was just about to buy the Fire & Ice dvd and I noticed this 4 disc LE fo Spinal Tap.. Does anyone have this, or have any more info on it? I'd love to see more of the packaging and know what's spread across the 4 discs.

According to that link, here's what's included:

- Bonus CD included - Film soundtrack + Break like the Wind album
- Chapters
- Deleted Scenes
- Extra Movie - The Return of Spinal Tap : concert at the Royal Albert Hall + sketches
- Featurette - Flower People Press Conference
- Interviews - Philippe Manoeuvre
- Miscellaneous Module TV : Where are they now ?
- Music Video - 5 video clips + Clip Hard Top
- Several Film Trailers
- TV Spots

It doesn't give the disc-by-disc breakdown, but basically you're getting the 2 Spinal Tap albums and Return of Spinal Tap movie with some other extras. Sounds like a pretty decent package.

i have the two cds and the Return. It looks like its just all put together for one package because all those extras are included in what I have.

Nope, no forced subs! The box isn't as fancy as it looks, I'll take some shots of it Monday and post them so you can check it out.

What did this set you back? I'm assuming you had it shipped to the U.S.? Did you order it from www.dvdzone2.com?

i bought it for the cool packaging. it's a plastic-molded slipcase that a thick quad keepcase slides into. otherwise, the contents are the same as the R1 stuff (dvds & soundtrack cds).

I bought it from dvdzone2.com, roughly $60 including shipping.

It's what darmok said, a plastic molded front to make the "marshall amp" appearance, which is glued into a cardboard box, which the quad keepcase slides into.

The plastic molded front is pretty cheap looking, the "marshall" logo on the "head" of the box is actually just a sticker, if you look closely at the image below you can tell.



It looks cool from far away, but when you pick it up and get a good look at it, you realize how cheap and flimsy it is. Mine actually came damaged, the plastic is thin and raised, so at one point it must have gotten a bit crushed in transport. The plastic edge to the lower left of the big S in "Spinal Tap" is cracked and coming off the cardboard box it's glued to.

I meant to bring home a digi cam and take pics to post today, but I totally forgot. I'll be sure to do so tomorrow night.

Wow, I'm a loser! I took the pics, but didn't realize that I can't upload attachments here. I'll find somewhere to host them and post them then.
