No wonder they have a shortage of space in Japan.

Couldn't help myself. Just ordered it from Amazon.co.jp which was the cheapest out of all the .jp etailers, if you can call 29604Yen (Roughly $280US) cheap

The fact that's made by Hot Toys gives me a minor concilation.

As previously said: I'd be there with bells on if The Animatrix was released on its own, having bought the HD DVD set last year. Buying the entire set all over again, though? Not my first choice...

...and I need your sweet love, Latina T-Mobile girl!

Import from Europe, then. Animatrix will be a seperate release over here.

It will probably be released in the US as well whenever they decide to release the films separately. Although come to think about it, they never did release the "green" Matrix DVD from the collection on its own, did they?

Animatrix has TrueHD audio. Yessss.

It's like one Warner is cool, but the other one could care less.

Finally the definitive matrix box set. Can't wait.

Ridiculous codec tier sig gone. Still AVC/24bit lossless fanboy.

Studio quality tier
Most Major studios>Small Studios>dogs>cats>Warner(the guys that do new movies)

Yes! This makes me happy... hoping for early delivery :crossesfingers:
I'm kinda glad it's not a multi-box like Blade Runner.
I can keep the discs out that I want and put away the rest...

It looks like the Amazon price for this set is still $89.95. I was hoping it would go down like the Godfather set did. I guess there is still time.

Well it was part of the Amazon 3 for 2 sale. That is how I got mine so it was $30 off effectively.

Hi guys,

I received this today. I'll check it out ASAP.

Question for someone..Did they re-encode for a 50gb? I'm sure it's the same transfer from the HD-DVD set.

Thanks,
Paul

Pretty sure Warner is just re-using the previous HD DVD encodes. I know other reviewers got the set so I'm sure some can compare. Apparently instead of normal BD cases they are packaged in cardboard sleeves?

My US set should be dispatched any day now. Can't wait to revisit the first flick and to finally get some Animatrix HD goodness.

Could you take some pics of the packaging? I'm curious to know what I "missed" by going with the red version a year and (almost) a half ago.

The only thing "missing" from this set is the SD version of 'the Animatrix' which is now presented in HD, finally. Other than that, they are identical regarding content. The larger capacity of Blu-ray allowed for the special features on one side of a disk. No disc flipping with the Blu-ray version.

Are these essentially Blu-ray sized versions of the thin cases often used in TV on DVD sets like Futurama or Firefly or the re-releases of Fox series like The X-Files and Angel?

Animatrix looks killer. TRUE HD on it as well, which is nice.

Here's a photo of the cases:

WHV automatically discounts it by 20% from their listed price and you can't use any of the coupons on top of that. You can get it for $80 from WHV but I'm really surprised that it hasn't dropped further on sites like Amazon.

If you purchase 2 items from WHV you can apply ANWBTS which will up your discount to 30%. So I'd find a cheap movie and tack it on. Although taxes are a problem with this site for some folks....

Ah... I remember all those arguments I had with people SWEARING that The Animatrix simply MUST have been edited and mastered in SD even though it had a full proper 35mm film screening...

sweet justice...
