    Barring the occasional deep discount pricing elsewhere, the Italian Import BATMAN Blu-ray Series sets have been by far the best value on a consistent basis! :)


    CHEERS! :)

    There is also a promotion if you buy a 50EUR GC, you can get a 10EUR Promotion so you could ratchet down the price even a little more by buying a triple -- average price $22.50

    This may be old news to some of you, but I just found this video of an episode of Hollywood Palace. Adam West sings "Orange Colored Sky" in full Batman gear. Gosh I miss 1960's TV! (if this has been posted before and I missed it, I apologize.)

    In my opinion, this would have been a great Bonus Feature if it could have been included in the Series set! Adam West's singing wasn't unpleasant, and Joey Heatherton....:)

    It looked like a pretty long drop down those Batpoles!

    CHEERS! :)

    My local Costco in Seattle area has the individual DVD season sets of BATMAN for $10.99 each; that's a good bargain.

    Especially considering they were going for about $35 a pop about a year ago, I agree that is a very good deal. In fact, apart from ordering the entire series Blu-ray set via Amazon Italy, I'd say that's about the best deal that I've heard! :)

    CHEERS! :)

    Saw your posting and I jumped on it (Grabbit Rabbit Time). Oh well, another $76.14 out the window but I did want this for my birthday coming in July. Couldn't pass this up.
    Guess now I might go for the complete Star Trek-Enterprise blu-ray set in July but I was going to get it at the end of April. Oh well at least I can now wait for the price on Enterprise to drop (currently at around $113, was as low as $100).

    To be honest, the only Limited Edition exclusive item I really wish I had is "The Adam West Scrapbook"! The Batmobile and the Cards, though cool looking, I can live without.

    I'm considering giving a few of my favorite Bat-Episodes a fresh viewing! For me, viewing these gems in small doses works best.

    CHEERS! :)

    I guess it;s only fitting that the UK and italian sets should be similar price given that the Italian set is basically just the UK set anyway. Same insert, even has the UK rating logos, Just add an italian backsheet and no fuss release.
    I guess I should say had the same price for a day -- now back to £48

    Sure, but the price has never been in the ballpark of competitive -- $73 + tax for most is the lowest listed. The Limited Edition was that price and has the UV code which can be used or sold if you like.

    Your link goes to the UK set though sold by a 3rd Party.

    US Standard Batman Complete BD


    The Italian set has been sub $30 at least a couple times with special promos and has the corrected discs already which I'm not sure any of the US set have to date

    I can clarify that a friend of mine who lives in Iowa has a Season 1 DVD set that includes the William Dozier narration in the first episode's opening scene, as he checked the DVD while we were on the phone after I had told him about the opening scene. Based on that, I'd say it's likely that at least some of the unlimited U.S. Blu-ray sets contain the replacement discs, though it's probably still hit and miss.

    CHEERS! :)

    Thanks for the correction!

    I ordered the Italian set last year. Love it.

    And each one comes with an $8 coupon good towards a theatrical showing of Batman vs Superman, making it an even better deal. I bought a set for my nephew and will be taking him and some friends to see BvS.

    That's a really nice bonus! I'm thinking these season sets must be fairly recent pressings.

    CHEERS! :)

    Yep. All fresh pressings, unlike a lot of the "overstock/unsold/damaged cover inventory that we gotta move before we announce the new improved edition".

    Yeah, you just gotta love the ones that contain expired coupons, and contest entries for cruises that have long since concluded! :P

    CHEERS! :)

    I caught the full "Limited Edition" during the Amazon Flash sale last week. Got mine for $71.49.

    Back up to $126.67 as of today.
