    Did anyone else see this? It looks really nice (other than the Hobbit movies which blew in my opinion) and has a lot of really nice extras in it. The only issue, it's $800 which is insane! I mean I love LOTR (mostly the books) but I don't think I could stomach spending this much on PJ's movies.

    That is a crazy price. If you're the kind of fan who would want this, you probably already own the extended editions of the movies.

    Anyone who already owns the six EE films, as I do, I will gladly build you the wooden stand for half the asking price of this set :D:p;)

    Wow that does look nice but exceedingly over priced. Who can afford this?

    I heard on Instagram that the 4K edition is so much better. Better spend your money on that instead

    I haven't seen it at that price anywhere, honestly. You can get it at walmart.com for less than $400. Still at least twice what I'd pay for it.
