Hell no!

Sorry, as cool as they say (and it may in fact be just as cool as they claim it to be), I won't be paying full price on that. This would be another "wait 6 months and see how cheap it is then" before the idea of buying it.

But not every movie in the set is something I'd ever watch again, Blu-ray or not. Now if the set ends up half off the MSRP, I'd definitely have second thoughts about it for sure. That's the one good thing about pricey sets like this because within a years time, if not sooner, you can get these dirt cheap on Amazon or elsewhere.

Yea, there have been some pretty cool sets released over time and look at them now. Pretty cheap. I guess it depends on how many they produce.
