    I have this pre-ordered (minus the globe) and am looking forward to it. BTW, for those on the fence, Amazon's price is down to $80 from $96.

    Since there's a lot of discussion about UFO in this thread, I thought I'd let you all know I just happened to find that Amazon has the entire series streaming in HD for free (with ads) and you don't even have to be a Prime member.

    Got my set it’s a really nice compact set in a sturdy box. Watching Breakaway now these may be the same transfers from the other set but I give the edge to this set. Probably better encoding techniques now, the color is better too.

    Watching on a 65 inch Sammy 4K set thru my Samsung 4K player

    My only complaint on the set is that for the price they couldn’t secure the compilation movies and the Message from moon base alpha fan film, plus the making of documentary

    I really would have loved the compilation movies.... My VHS copies won't last forever and Cosmic Princess never got a home video release...

    Well, not in the US anyway (I have PAL videotapes of all the compilations, and the NTSC tapes of the three that were released here).

    The compilation movies were released on DVD in Germany (PAL/R2), and of course, there's Network's blu-ray (Region B) of Destination Moonbase Alpha.

    Mine arrived yesterday morning. It's a great looking set, complete with a bonus disc of extras and a booklet - that's old school stuff. Glad to see it. Haven't had a chance to watch any yet, but I'm looking forward to it.

    There's a reason I've gotten to where I pre-order but then wait to finalize a purchase...

    Right now - this is on Amazon for $80.29 with a *$16.06* automatic coupon applied during checkout for a final total of $64.23 before tax.

    This looks to be a price match to Target who currently has a 20% off select movies promotion. Use your REDcard for another 5% off that...

    I know I'm paying more and getting my set late, but I really wanted that snow globe! Mine shipped from Shout! yesterday.

    Same! According to the USPS tracking, I’ll have them both by the time I get home from work.

    The snow globe is godawful. Really disappointed in it. Not even close to the advertisement.

    Well that bites! I thought it looked really cool but just couldn't justify the added expense. I really wanted one too...

    Got my set yesterday. Yep. The snow globe is bad. Really not worth the cost or the extra wait time. Should have just gotten the Blu-ray set and called it a day. Oh well. Maybe in 20 years the snow globe will fetch a decent price on the collector's market.

    Honestly I’m passed. It’s shoddy work and I really think all of us who ordered based on the advertised picture need a redo or a partial refund.
