Hello all, I'm very new to this space and have only just started my Blu-Ray collection (at about 30 titles now). I wanted to get the opinion of all you seasoned veterans of the craft of collecting; is the Disney Classics Complete Collection worth looking into? I do very much enjoy classic animation and wanted a pretty quick way to have a pretty good foothold in the Disney realm. If I don't have any of the titles in the collection, is this a pretty good way to start? Would I be missing much from the Disney animated space? Is there any advantage to collecting each title individually? Thanks!

Be causous, if your signing up for the Disney Movie Club. There are advantages but there are strings attached. I have been a member for a few years, and have aquired many Blue Rays for my collection at reasonable prices - https://www.hometheaterforum.com/community/threads/shame-on-you-disney.373497/

Ah interesting, I wasn't planning on joining the movie club, rather just nabbing a copy of the 57 disc set. Is the Club a better deal?

The UK Collection is fine realizing there are several items that are B locked though the majority are region free, the few items that are DVD only, no digital codes, no DMI points, and missing many of the extra/bonus discs that some fo the standalones have. It's a spacesaving set and has mostly the same transfers as the US BD items.

At $280 it's also pretty cheap for the number of movies you're getting even if you eliminate every DVD and B locked titles.

Going through DMC - you could get the individual releases with DMI points and Digital copies (to use, sell, or give away). Some people prefer individual sets with case art, etc.
If you are patient and don't mind putting in the boring work of signing up, fullfilling, cancelling, signing up again, I figure you could probably get all Blu-rays for around $400 (around 9 items at $70-75 per signup cycle), You could also do it entirely with a single enrollment, but you'd be looking at around $550 at a minimum

If you went ahead and got the 5 BD and the Collection then the prices will be a bit closer. If you have to replace the 5 or 6 B locked titles too, the money shifts toward DMC
