Like others have said, I'm not sure I want to re-buy the ones I already have on Blu. But On Her Majesty's Secret Service and The Spy Who Loved me are must-owns. I have a fondness for THe Living Daylights too.

Speaking of region free, does anyone own, and can recommend, the Seiko region free player from Wal Mart? My local store has a couple sitting on the shelf for about $75, wondering if it's worth it.

Everything you've heard about the restorations of the early Connery films is true. Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Goldfinger look really spectacular. I was truly awe-struck the first time I watched those discs. Here's hoping we get You Only Live Twice, OHMSS, and Diamonds Are Forever in similar quality.
OOps! Forgot to add the quote. Speaking of region free, can anyone recommend the Seiko 660 player from Wal Mart? They have a couple sitting on the shelf at my local store for about $75. Are they worth it?

Just picked up the DVD of the 1967 version of Casino Royale since it has the 1954 made-for-TV movie for less than $4 like new from Amazon, the 1967 Blu-ray of Casino Royale also on Amazon for less than $12 new, and a like new copy of Never Say Never Again on Blu-ray from eBay for $10. I'm ready for this collection now.

I have the more recent DVD SE with the making-of an commentary, but i was really disappointed that it didn't contain the tv movie. ever since i got it, i've been thinking about picking up the earlier edition, just for that. i wonder why they didn't include it? rights issues?

I have no idea. Since the DVD is OOP, I don't want to chance that it won't be included in the box set.

Amazon has the set on there for $199.99 right now. It was more the other day. I recommend those who are interested pre-order it (you can always cancel it later) in case the price increases.

I hope the extra listings are not final cuz I want EVERYTHING from the previous releases to be ported over. I'd also like their to be new anniversary editions of Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again just to complete the set.

I doubt it. The Casino Royale (1967) Blu just came out and it didn't contain the 1954 movie (You need to buy the DVD for that). The Never Say Never Again Blu that is currently available is impressive in my opinion (quality & extras).

Yep. The Never Say Never Again Blu-ray is pretty definitive. I sincerely doubt a better release is coming in the foreseeable future.

Good news regarding the extras!:

http://www.digitalbits.com/#mytwocents

"And in other news, there's been a lot of talk around the Internet about the list of extras revealed yesterday by Fox and MGM for the upcoming Bond 50 box set. Specifically, it appeared (based on the press release) that many things have been left off from the previous DVD and Blu-ray Ultimate Editions of the Bond films. Upon reading the list however, I wasn't convinced that it was 100% comprehensive and included absolutely everything on the discs. So I asked the studio to clarify. Sure enough, I've just heard back from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. As expected, the list posted yesterday - and included in the official press release - was simply a "marketing highlights" summary. The complete list of extras on the Bond 50 discs is significantly longer. We've asked for additional details and specifics and we'll post them here as the studio makes them available."

So there's still hope that all the extras from previous editions will be included!

Outstanding. I didn't catch that part of the article. Thanks!
