I am so dying to buy this on Nov. 28th. This has to be by far the most extensive movie collection I have ever seen. Now the one thing I'm trying to figure out it the retail price of this thing. I know the SRP is 99.99. Just would like to know how much I should be saving up for this baby.

Approximately $69 at Amazon, I'd guess.

I thought there is a 14-disc out soon... why buy this 13 disc instead?

This is a 14 disc set. The first disc of Superman isn't pictured. It has baby Kal-El on it.

Couldn't find it before because of the Keyword search I was doing. Best price on the set so far is $79.98 at Barnes & Noble. It's available for pre-order on 3 sites that I can see so far, Barnes & Noble, CDUniverse and DVDBoxOffice. As you guys said, I'm sure we'll see even better prices form Amazon or DeepDiscountDVD.

At DVDEmpire It's $83.40 with shipping. At Barnes & Noble its free shipping - $79.78.

Looks like it's going to be available everywhere very soon ......

DeepDiscountDVD is the new best price leader - $75.55

Only 25% off list isn't very good. It should be cheaper closer to release date.

Looks amazing. Any ideas on when this might be available to pre-order at Amazon.com?

I have a sneaking suspicion this has to do with the Reeve Collection released on the same day.

Think about it. We've have loads of simultaneous releases where the single disc edition has an SRP of $29.98 and the double-disc set is $30.98. And the result is always the same: The single discer is available for close to $15 on release day, the two-discer close to $25.

I fear the same will happen with the Reeve and Ultimate Collections.

I think Christian is right. The mega set is aimed at collectors/hardcore fans who will spend the money even if they're not happy about it and the more casual fan has the basic set.

And really 14 discs for about $70 isn't exactly a rip off.

Hang on, are these new transfers-extras-sound mixes- etc. or are these repackaged dvd's of all the previous releases?

Definitely not just a repackaging, the previous set was only like 4 discs wasn't it?

This is a set that you shouldn't have to think about it. It is a must buy!
