    Hi Everybody,

    I had a very enjoyable christmas, with planty of new dvd's to explore and enjoy. Among the many DVD's which I received was The Alien Legacy boxed set. However, there was no coupon to mail-in for The Sixth Passenger dvd and I am wondering if this is an error, or if Fox pulled the 5th disk in preparation of the entire set being placed on moratorium.

    Thanks,

    Sheldon Petrie

    This mail-in-coupon hasn't been available for a long, long time.

    I thought so. Ah well, all we can do is hope for the rumoured SE's. Thanks for the info.

    I don't know what the expiration date was on the mail-in offer, but I know it had expired already when I purchased the box in January 2000.

    If you MUST have that 5th disc, it can usually be had on eBay for between $40 and $75 dollars (I researched this for a friend recently). That's better than the $50 to $100 it was about a year ago, when someone last researched this on HTF. [​IMG]
    On the other hand, it is rumored that a new version of the Alien DVD is coming (I would have said "Alien - 5 Star Collection", but the 5 Star lineup is now dead, per Peter Staddon himself, so they will call it something else). And the rumor goes that the about-an-hour-long documentary which is the only thing on that 5th disc will be one of the supplements on the new release.
    As an owner of that 5th disc, I can't say that the average person will find that this documentary is worth $50-ish to anyone but the most die-hard fans. As a die-hard fan, though, I'm glad I have it! [​IMG]

    Here's one [​IMG]

    SUCH LINKS ON THIS FORUM!
    And yes...they were only available for a SHORT period of time in 1999. I was lucky enough to get one. Looks nifty in a new keepcase with new art. It comes in a cardboard sleeve.

    I have this still sealed and in mint condition if anyone is interested in buying it for, say, $50.

    the fifth discs comes free in the region 2 version of the boxset. Though this will make the r2 version of the 5th disc significantly less rare, so watch out for lamers trying to sell the r2 one at the same kind of price as the r1 version is going for on ebay (as the r2 version is of it is obviously not a limited edition).
