First post, I've see the R1 versions posted here, but no mention on the R2 yet.

HMV taking pre-orders on the 5-Disk set DVD and HD-DVD/BR for £17.99

The 5 disk set contains the workprint version of the film only available in the briefcase edition of the R1 version - currently around £38 + import duties from Amazon.com so a nice saving there.

Hello hamandpicklew, welcome to the forums I love Blade RUnner!!!

Shucks, :oops:

Long time lurker, so thought I should make a contribution.

Personally can't wait for this release, the R2 is missing a few bits from the R1 briefcase set, but importantly (for me) all the special features are there.

nice, thanks!

play.com have now also listed the 5-disk DVD for the same price:

Although no HD-DVD or Blue-Ray listings there yet.

What bits are missing?



The R1 briefcase contains:

The Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be presented in a unique 5-disc digi-package with handle which is a stylish version of Rick Deckard's own briefcase, in addition each briefcase will be individually numbered and in limited supply. Included is a lenticular motion film clip from the original feature, miniature origami unicorn figurine, miniature replica spinner car, collector's photographs as well as a signed personal letter from Sir Ridley Scott.

From R2 description:

* Metal Tin Packaging
* Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition Version Of Blade Runner: Final Cut
* Lenticular Image
* Art Cards
* A Letter From Ridley Scott

So, 'miniature origami unicorn figurine', 'miniature replica spinner car', and the briefcase itself seem to be missing...

:thumbsup:

Does anyone know of any vouchers flying about, I've got a few things to buy from HMV?:thumbsup:

Looks like the HD-DVD and Bluray versions are just the 'final cut' film not the box set, still a bargain for UK land, and 10% quidco

or wait til january .....

amazon.com/gp/…204

current exchange rate assuming customs keep their snouts out is $34/£17 ish delivered

Thanks - have pre-ordered. Only comes out in December, but if a better deal comes along, I can cancel and re-order elsewhere.

Plus, if you pre order from HMV you get a rather nifty looking Bladerunner keyring. Niiice. :thumbsup: So, thank you very much HMV...have my pre-order

:viking: Incessant clicking by fevered BR geeks must have temporarily broke HMV, OH NOES! :giggle:

Pre-ordered, a provisional hot, given how unreliable HMV can be (yeah I clicked it).

My cancelled £3.99 Topdrive steering wheel "is now available and is awaiting shipment", since June 06. :-D

Right, to clear up a bit!

R1 - 5 disc DVD in tin box - NOT in the briefcase packaging.
R1 - 5 disc HD-DVD/Blu-Ray - in the briefcase packaging.

R2 - 5 disc DVD / HD-DVD / Blu-Ray - all in tin box. The briefcase packaging is NOT getting released in the UK.

not forgetting of course that the r1 hd dvd is actually
region free like all hd dvds (unlike nasty blu ray) :whistling:

Oh is it? Well you still need an HD-DVD player, which most people don't have!

Banned

I've got one.....

Only thing I am concerned about it that HMV do not say 5 Disc HD DVD or 5 Disc Blue Ray like on Amazon.com, hence do we know for certain that it will be the same, or will we only get a 1 disc release here?

There is no 1 disc release - it's either 2 disc or 5 disc.

The UK is getting all 6 (2 disc DVD/HD/BR - 5 disc DVD/HD/BR)

However HMV do not say if the £17.99 will be for the 2 disc HD DVD or the 5disc HD DVD, so can only assume it's the 2 disc version.

Ok, looks like this needs clearing up:

From what I can see, HMV are offering:

On DVD: Blade Runner: Final Cut: Ultimate Collectors Edition: 5 Disc's for £17.99
hmv.co.uk/hmv…849

On Blu Ray: Blade Runner: Final Cut: 1 or 2 Disc (doesnt say!) for £17.99
hmv.co.uk/hmv…658

On HD-DVD: Blade Runner: Final Cut: 1 or 2 Disc (again, doesnt say!) for £17.99
hmv.co.uk/hmv…650

So, from what I can see, HMV are NOT OFFERING the 5 Disc ultimate Collectors edition on EITHER Blu Ray or HD-DVD - only bog standard DVD!

The HD and Blu-Ray versions on the HMV site have the cover for the 2-disc, so I imagine that's what it is. I can't see a 5-disc HD or Blu-Ray set being £17.99?

It's so confusing! :? The Amazon website has this Region 1 release cover as well:

http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/61UuM4DakzL._SS500_.jpg

This is what the official press release says:

[SIZE=2]BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT will be included in two stunning DVD … [SIZE=2]BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT will be included in two stunning DVD editions both released on 3rd December on DVD, HD and Blu-Ray. The Two-Disc Special Edition will have new commentaries and a bonus disc featuring the documentary Dangerous Days: Making Blade Runner. [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The Five-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be packaged in a collectible tin with lenticular, art cards and a letter from Ridley Scott. [/FONT][/SIZE]

CD-Wow are now selling the regular DVD 5-disc set for £17.99 - with a discount link you could bring this down to £16.99, plus you could choose to use vouchers and Quidco as well for even more money off.
