    It seems Japan will have a collector's box edition of the Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone available come May 15th. They also have a normal edition 2-disc special as well.
    The link is the Amazon Japan site (which unfortunately is in Japanese and no English, just click on picture for a bigger view):
    Collector's Edition:
    http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...341209-7775457
    Normal Edition:
    http://www.amazon.co.jp/exec/obidos/...341209-7775457
    For those who can't read Japanese, the Collector's Edition contains everything in the normal edition 2-disc set, plus
    1) a gold snitch, with limited ed. number on a stand (model is of 1:1 size)
    2) miniature wizard's hat
    3) original 3D card
    Cost is 9800 Yen (about $75 USD). Normal Edition is 2980 Yen (about $23)

    The CE version looks pretty nice. Any chance of a DTS track? [​IMG]

    There's another version like that CE due for release in Europe I believe, it's the same except instead of the hat it comes with a mini Nimbus2000 replica.

    Is that CE set (with Snitch, hat etc..)have Japanese subtitles? Is English one of the language choices?

    All Japanese releases of US movies come with English and 99% of the time removeable Japanese subtitles. Most films are released subtitled there, and the entire country seems to have great respect for OSL

    ...for comparison - this is the Limited Collector's Edition from France:
    http://www.dvdfr.com/dvd/fiche.php3?id=5420
    ...which includes the OST on 2(!) CDs plus a lot of junk besides... no dts... instead three DD 5.1 EX soundtracks...
