Today at Amazon. http://amzn.to/18B1moS

Includes the original 5 box set, plus the Burton anomaly and Rise.

If I hadn't already bought the original 5 box (for $20) earlier this year, I would spring for this.

Good price. I already bought the big and heavy boxed set with the large book as well as, separately, the undeservedly maligned Tim Burton take with the far too stoic Mark Wahlberg, so I'm sure I have everything included in this new one. But I'd like to talk about these huge boxed sets. I've been buying boxed sets going back to the days of VHS, then DVD, and now Blu-ray: "Gone With The Wind," "The Wizard of Oz," "Planet of the Apes," "Alien Anthology," "Ben-Hur," "The Sound of Music," and, a little smaller, "Star Trek" and "X Men." While they can be gorgeous and have oodles of extras, there comes a point where one needs to rent storage space just to stop stumbling over them! And I wish there could be some consistency and uniformity to their size. You almost need a large glassed case to display them!

Also for sale today only:

All five Die Hard Blu-rays for $33.99

http://www.amazon.com/The-Die-Hard-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B00F9D00SU/ref=br_lf_m_1001388851_1_1_img?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=movies-tv&pf_rd_p=1616334062&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1001388851&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1FZ16GZ57XNRD6CVFGX0

Both amazing deals, IMO, although since I own most of the Die Hards on DVD already, and a few of the POTAs, I don't think I can justify the cost of upgrading.

The worst, I think, are The Simpsons releases, in their giant misshapen head boxes. Where are you supposed to store that crap?

At least in that case you can call it art and set it up on a display shelf. But at this point, with the many I've already bought, I would need another of my 7-foot tall shelf units just to display 'em! I'm leaning towards a "less is more" mind set, although it's hard to fight the urge to buy some of these beauties!

I have the same dilemma ---
I still have all those lovely laserdisc box sets - I rarely watch them but there is all the extras plus great artwork and features unique to the LDs such as isolated score tracks - never reissued on dvd or BR. I especially like the Disney sets.
And plenty of dvd sets too - at least they are smaller in most cases( no pun intended).
And now all the oversize Blu-ray box sets -- some are great like TEN COMMANDMENTS + BEN-HUR. I even bought the large box dvd set for A STAR IS BORN - cheap - because of the unique extras in it - after the BR was released. Oh well, I guess I will need a special storage unit for the back yard soon.
