  1. $600??? WOW … you would have to be a mega fan to spend that much. Besides, they are out already 🙂

  2. You would have to be a fanatic to spend this much. I like the movies and have them all on Blu-ray, including extended editions of the first two. All up costs around $200. Not a big fan of special features, so wouldn’t want to pay an extra $400 for fancy packaging and special features.
