I see these on Amazon, does anyone have these? Is there any loss of picture quality for these compared to the single releases or box sets? I am looking at upgrading to blu-ray for this series. Thanks!

I'd be shocked if these were anything but a repackaging of the original single-disc Blu-rays. Which is to say that they lack the special features and extended cuts from the Ultimate Editions, but should be fine otherwise.

Also, if special features are important to you, Warners is planning a re-release of the whole series next year.

I purchased one of these packages and can confirm that each set contains the original two Blu-ray releases. The biggest shock compared to more recent releases is the audio portion of the presentation: PCM 5.1 as opposed to the (now standard) DTS-HD MA. Still -- The sound seems perfectly adequate. So this represents an easy and inexpensive way to upgrade the Video/Audio presentation from your early DVD representations of the movies.
