    My understanding is that the UK packaging is the same as that of the one you have EDIT: actually I guess it is still unclear what exactly the UK packaging will be

    pretty sure the info about them having it and the price originated in a post at blu-ray.com wasn't a case of HTF taking all the stock just sayin

    to those thinking Fingerhut had old/bad stock .... they didn't have any stock the product page says (said when it was available, which it no longer is) ships direct from supplier not sure who their supplier is that is drop shipping it but there were enough red flags with this company that I'd...

    wouldn't this help determine if it was the same or not .... "the MARNIE fuzz that I've described 80% GOES AWAY at the start of Chapter 18 (01:55:55). The last 15 mins look okish. So, why do chapters 1-17 have the 1080p Fuzz pedal switched on and it's switched off at the beginning of chapter...

    it is not really more than a month to correct the errors unless the process had begun before we knew it is going to take time to repress discs, repackage, and ship

    oh I agree Robert, in time we will see individual releases of the titles with the "more popular" titles seeing release first It's just that we don't know when that will be and I think there was great anticipation of knowing we had an upcoming street date on the full set and now much of that...

    USHE Announcement: Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Blu-ray)

    titles are not available individually (other than the already released Psycho and NXNW) that's the rub ..... it is the box set or nothing at this point and given retailers are not going to take returns on open product because we are unhappy with transfers, etc we have to accept what Universal...

    unfortunately easier said than done most if not all retailers will not give refunds on open media .... if it is returned as defective and then they will just exchange it for the same item if they were in the business of taking media back because users were not happy there would be way too...

    ^ i'm going to guess that is somewhat of a rhetorical question I can't think of another BD collection of this scope (sorry Nolan fans (; ) ...
