    Thanks for the image...I'm looking forward to it.
    BTW, buy.com's price is ok, but amazon.com has E.T.: the gift set for 52 dollars, with free shipping.
    So much for a 70 dollar gift set, eh? [​IMG]

    I hope it at least houses the DVDs in a keepcase that I can put on my shelf.

    I don't understand all the fuss over the price. If it were a Criterion release, people would bend over backwards and pay $50. I guess since people think Steven and Universal are rich enough, they want to complain.

    The difference is that Criterion releases (ARMEGEDDON and a few others notwithstanding) are classic or niche films. Criterion has to charge more to pay for their excellent production values and because sales are much lower than that of mainstream films. E.T. is a mass-market blockbuster. There is no reason for charging $50 in order to get the original version, I don't care how many lousy lithos and such they throw in the box. The decision was made to milk the money from real film buffs. Assume the position!
