    Just look at this great limited edition TNG pillar. Or before that, there was the TNG Borg Mega Cube. Also a limited edition.

    They are realy kicking the fans in the private parts with this. You like trek, you buy trek when it hits the street. Then, half a year later, Paramount starts releasing all these fabulous limited edition boxes.

    Bastards.

    I am sure at some point Paramount we Re-re release them over here with the different covers to get some more money in their bank.

    They probably will.

    Did you notice the t-shirt you get with the pillar? It reads "I have it!" and "Very Limited!". Plus, the pillar has its own lighting.

    Bastards!!

    The pillar looks nice - I'd rather have that than the Borg Megacube, which I do have.

    Here's an idea: Why doesn't Paramount just produce the specialty cases without the discs for North American fans? I'm sure that most of the fans who have the means already have the sets so these would make great storage alternatives for them. Both sides will benefit- the fans for having an interesting conversation piece in their collection and Paramount for finding another way to make money off Star Trek. Damn....I shoulda been in marketing!

    Borg cube for me please...[​IMG]

    Yeah, but their discs play too fast. [​IMG]

    And they can't claim higher resolution for Trek TNG, because the series was produced on NTSC video, not film. [​IMG]

    If I watched the R2 here on my set, I'd be watching an NTSC->PAL->NTSC conversion...and still sped up to boot. Not good.

    The original is the R1. The R2 packaging is very sweet, though.
