Re: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Limited Edition Collector’s Gift Set

I've seen on bluray.com a possible date was April 8. If this is true, saving my gift cards for this one and not waiting for the extended cut.

Re: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Limited Edition Collector’s Gift Set

Thanks Jessk and jrjhoe for the updated info.

Sure like to know what Weta is planning for the EE. I'm getting really tired of purchasing the same movie twice.
As if WB isn't getting enough money out of these movies to begin with.

With the addition of the behind-the-scenes production discs as well as the statues it will be a bit easier to put out the money for the theatrical edition. I just hope the eventual extended edition will contain a different sculpt from Weta as well as different production discs.

Re: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Limited Edition Collector’s Gift Set

I know they're all free on YouTube, but it would be nice to eventually have all the video blogs (not the appendices that are on the EEs) on blu-ray at some point. I kinda thought they'd include them on the theatrical versions, but they haven't.

They did a nice stand-alone package of the King Kong behind-the-scenes DVDs back in the day. I wonder if they'd consider doing something similar for these.

EE should contain the next two parts in the special features Appendices. They've even carried over the counting from the LOTR Appendices (AUJ Appendices are numbered 7 & 8), so I don't see why they would stop!

Re: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Limited Edition Collector’s Gift Set

Well, that's a bit disapointing, I only buy the full EE versions, which of course always had a statue. I'm not buying double the discs, so will wait and see what Weta do for the EE version and see what these Noble ones are like.

Then later I can just buy the statues off eBay, I have a feeling there will be a fair number around.

I'll be holding out for the EE Weta collector set.

Those Erebor bookends look nice though...

I didn't even notice they were numbered and continued from the LOTR. So yes, I am sure they will continue this in the extended edition.
