    The egg is certainly tempting, but I just really don't want to spend an extra $40. Not to mention that I've gotten two defective Fox Blu-rays before (none from any other studio)...so I'd much rather just get it from Amazon where returns are simple.

    Sorry if this has been answered, but does the egg set have any additional material as far as content is concerned for the additional $40.00?

    As far as I know you're just paying extra for the egg. The layout for the discs is a little different too as to fit it inside the egg sculpture.

    Yea...I emailed them, a couple days ago, a simple question as to when it would be shipped (on the release date or before so it arrives on my doorstep on the release date). They didn't even dignify me with a simple reply back. I even stated in the email I had already pre-ordered it.

    Little stuff like that really irks the shit out of me.

    Time for everyone to get off the fence regarding this...

    And for those of you who may have worried that any of the films will suffer the same DNR-ed fate as the recent Predator Blu-ray, I've heard from multiple sources directly involved now that such fears are unnecessary. All four films have been given brand new HD transfers and the masters reportedly look fantastic. In fact, we've been told that when James Cameron viewed and approved the new Aliens master (Aliens being the most troublesome looking film of the series in the past quality-wise), he was VERY pleased with the results. We'll have more on this set in the days and weeks ahead.

    sorry, my bad. i didn't see your post earlier, and after skimming the page saw lots of mentions of "preorder" and "amazon" in the same sentence.

    sitting here chewing my knuckles....

    I see the egg i preordered will be over 100 USD more than the regular box.........

    this is with the taxes for import and such

    Is it worth it for an incredibly cool figure that will just sit on my shelf. Help me make up my mind!!

    I can't justify the cost, but that's just me. If it contained additional content (if that's even possible), then I would buy it.
