I know hmv in store is cheaper by a pound but cheapest online at the moment and you can use your play superpoints to knock the price down again.Finally, for the first time, all three extended editions of The Lord Of The Rings come alive in high definition Blu-ray! See the epic trilogy the way it was meant to be seen with the complete re-mastered box set containing The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return Of The King!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid Middle-earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring -- a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay.

The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring: In a time before history, in a place called Middle-earth, a dark and powerful lord has brought together the forces of evil to destroy its cultures and enslave all life caught in his path. Sauron's time has come and he needs only one small object - a Ring that has been lost for centuries - to snuff out the light of civilization and cover the world in darkness...

The Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers: The fellowship is now divided with Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli (John-Rhys Davies) helping to restore some order to the land of King Theodon (Bernard Hill), whose mind has been poisoned by the machinations of Grima Wormtongue (Brad Dourif). Wormtongue is a secret emissary of wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee), now ready to unleash his army of the night on Middle-Earth. Meanwhile, Frodo (Elijah Wood) is falling deeper under the dreaded influence of The Ring, as he journeys with Sam (Sean Astin) towards Mordor...

The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King: It is time. For Frodo to overcome the wickedness of Gollum, the horrifying attack of the colossal arachnid Shelob and the soul-twisting allure of a ring that resists destruction. For Aragorn to take up the sword of his forebears and the crown of his birthright. For the mighty clash that wizard Gandalf calls "the great battle of our time." And for the inspired culmination of the films based on J.R.R. Tolkien's literary classic. For the third time, a Rings movie was a Best Picture Academy Award nominee and for the first time it claimed that prize (plus 10 more). The King deserves its crown.

99p cheaper at HMV if you can find it but voted hot.

So tempted, but I swore I'd wait for £20 as I already have on DVD. Heat added.

Hang on in there ryanp - that's what I'm aiming for, since I already have the Extended DVD Boxset.

Yes, me too. I am a die hard fan but just can't bring myself to part with the dosh. £25.99 is an excellent price though. Couldn't find HMV boxset. Only the individual films for £8 each or 3 for 20.

My friend reliably informs me that the Fellowship film on extended blu ray is of a higher quality than the theatrical blu ray release. So it could be a reason for upgrading.

Cold, crap seller and cheaper in hmv

Still waiting for 15, c'mon son...

Found 2 of them over the weekend at the HMV in Westfield Stratford!

Found some in Westfield white city too

Loads today in HMV & Fopp for £24.99

Nice try. Tell me, how much did it cost to travel to your local HMV, wait in line, then come all the way back home again? I'd hazard a guess at more than 99p

I know a lot of people here are waiting for sub 20 pounds but honestly i think that kind of price does injustice to the product. I bought the boxset the other day from hmv and it really is well made and good value. It feels like a premium product- not just a flimsy box with souless cases inside. The box itself is thick and heavy with a map inprinted inside it. Each plastic box inside contains the movie discs and a couple of dvd discs for extras. It also includes a smart Pamphlet thing too.

Reassuringly expensive is what i would call it and it now sits proudly on my shelf.

...Would prefer to pay £1 more and buy in HMV rather than order from Zoverstocks at a Lower price (Sorry, Customers don't forgive Poor Service; Next time why not offer 'Resolution' instead of Abject Incompetence?). Stacks in Stock, today 29 April 2013, at HMV Nottingham Victoria Centre ...support a Local Retailer!!

One does not simply vote this cold

15 discs? aint the bluray format capacity like 50 gig worth of data per disc? how on earth does this have 15 individual discs?

hot nevertheless

Fair comment, but clearly it may be cost-ineffectiive to travel into town to buy just One item? Worth scoping for other in-store bargains; today I bought Avatar Blu Ray/DVD steelbook and Die-Hard 1-4-making-way-for-the-5-film-box-in-a-month at only £9.99 each! Incidentally, I don't work for ANy retailer, just being objective tis all....

bought this from flubit at weekend for 25.03. and that was at a price comparison of 29.93 ish..

maybe they'll even better the offer ? 22 ish ?

Hot but this is going the right way towards £20 so waiting out.

My thoughts exactly, 10 discs of extra stuff that I would never watch I suspect so a bit of a waste for me. Hot deal though.

A queue at HMV? Not likely!

Good price but I must say zoverstocks I've not had many good experiences with from sending me the wrong DVD or sending me a 360 game when I brought a PS3 game. Even brought a box set of Twin Peaks from them once they sent me Jungle Book how they manage that one ha. CDs without booklets the list goes on I don't rate them but seems lots of people have had many successful buys from them.

my local hmv had about 12 of these still in £24.99
i paid £27 a few weeks ago from zavvi

Ive just gone into the world of blu ray a couple of months ago, and i have purchased a dozen or so item of them, approx 6 of eBay (estocks) and 6 of their amazon site, and all of them have been in superb condition, i don't think a single disc has had as much as a major scratch on them, so i would recommend, and their prices as we know are excellent.

delivery is quicker of estocks as opposed to amazon, dont know why, but im not in any rush for them

£24.99 at HMV

BTW people complaining they can't find any in HMV - try asking a member of staff. I work in a small store and we get pretty regular stock of these since they went down in price, but we only put out one or two on the shop floor as they are bulky and take up shelf room (plus an obvious target for thieves).

Dual layers are 50GB yes.


But... the extended LOTR exceed this 50GB limit due to their sheer size since the movie's are very long. 2 Towers for example is 60GB in size (that's just the 1080p movie stream + the english DTS HD Master 6.1 audio track) after other foreign audio streams & foreign subtitles have been removed. With those still included the size would be close to 70GB

So you WILL have to change the disc part way through. Whether you have 2 discs per film, or 3 discs per film depends on whether the films are on single or dual layer BD media.

I rip bluray all the time and store them on my HP microserver, playing the media thru a WD Live player (wired to the network....I don't do 'wireless'). So I used tsMuxeR to stitch the 2 discs worth of data together so the just shy of 4hr film plays seamlessly.

I don't trust Zoverstocks. from my experience "new" can sometimes mean "second hand but shrink wrapped".

When they say second hand "very good" condition, a normal person would say "shoddy", I've had loads of scuffed/scratched "very good" discs from them.

Obviously a lot of their stuff is in fine condition, but they're a pain when they send items which aren't as described.

It's not 15 blu-rays. For each film there is 2 blu-rays, then the 2 DVDs that were in the original DVD extended version, and an extra DVD for each film with a making of, which is the only new bit compared to the previous extended versions

...Well said, I saw stacks at HMV Nottingham this week behind the counter away from the hands of local ch*vs. It's Good to see some retailers, such as HMV, showing diligence in this potential issue. I notice HMV only display a slipcase where it's available, with a Blank case, on the shop floor. I also observe Asda using Poor Quality inkjet copy sleeves to display Blu Rays, clearly theft is an issue even with Red Tags. Morrisons, Oh Dear, even where there's a slipcase available they open and remove the discs and 'Master-bag' them, are they trapped in the 80s!? 'Master-bagging' tends to mark the discs which is why I Never buy Media from Morrisons. It may be worthwhile for Major Labels to provide Sample Sleeves/Display Boxes for ALL Product thereby reducing theft and keeping Inflation down...

After my recent experience of Morrisons DVD purchasing, I also think twice.

Bought a Mr Tumble DVD for my son - got home and it had a 15 rated film in it. One very unhappy child. So back to the shop, a sorry, the right disk, but nothing more. It's a 25 mile round trip to the shop....

Good proce, tempted...

Some of us wait because we know the studio's tricks. They kept playing with us, we kept patiently waiting. Remember how expensive the theatrical blu-ray trilogy boxset was? Now below £20. Then they thought they could be slick by releasing the extended DVD boxset and were holding out on the blu-ray boxset.
Plus, it's been almost 10 years since the last movie, seriously enough with the greed, they've made their money, give me my gorram boxset for 15, so I can watch my gorram features.
Geez look at the Avatar 3D, that shtako was over 100 quid! Studios, we love our money too...

Err...HUKD, herrbz didn't reply to my comment...

Only the movies are blu-ray and they're split onto 2 each. The other 9 discs of extras are DVDs.

ordered mine from flubit for £22.87

cold you have to swap discs.

Not being a die hard fan, I wondered if it was possible to watch without the extended scenes if I wanted to? I haven't seen the all of the extended scenes so the price is right which is why I'm looking at this box set. Also some of you are claiming the quality is better although there has been no overall agreement?
