There are several major releases coming over the next 5 weeks containing some of the best movies and biggest Bluray collections ever.
EDITS from the OP are BOLDED

A note of caution since none of these sets have been released/reviewed. There seems to be a very high likelihood that most/all these sets
will be Region Free and compatible with US Bluray equipment (50Hz issues), but nobody knows this 100% certainty yet.
These studios have been very consistent at releasing Region free/US compatible discs and insider correspondence has "confirmed"
all these movies and included extras will be US friendly. Amazon UK's listings conversely are extremely unreliable at providing
information of the region status of Region B releases.


Bond 50: The Complete 22 Film Collection [Blu-ray]
Release Date September 24, 2012 (UK) September 25, 2012 (US)

23rd disc filled with bonus materials. Over 130 hours of bonus material will be included.
The original Casino Royale (David Niven) and Never Say Never (Connery) are not part of this set.

All movies except #22 QOS reported on Amazon UK to be Region Free -- not confirmed by reviews yet

slipcase and is no longer available with the orders

US Universal Classic Monsters: The Essential Collection (Blu-ray)


Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection [Blu-ray]
Release Date Novemver 5, 2012 (UK), October 30, 2012 (US)


The only major content difference b/w the UK and US sets is that the US set includes North By Northwest which was released as a
standalone 3 years ago while the UK sets do not have NxNW. NxNW distribution rights are owned by Warner, but apparently the
US branch negotiated a deal with Universal to include it here in exchange for Warner being able to include Universal's Spartacus
in the US Stanley Kubrick Boxset.

Both UK Hitchcock sets may be missing original English mono 1.0/stereo 2.0 audio options and only will contain remastered 2.0 or 5.1 tracks -- confirmed at least on Vertigo by first review of Final preproduction Check Discs

A) Limited Edition with Acrylic Display, Hardback Book, Display cards, etc
UK Price 100 (approx $140 shipped)
UK Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection - Limited Edition (Blu-ray)(1942)(Region Free)

B) The standard Bluray release which looks very much like the US set

Vertigo (1958)
Psycho (1960)
The Birds (1963)
Marnie (1964)
Torn Curtain (1966)
Topaz (1969)
Frenzy (1972)
Family Plot (1976)

US Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection (Limited Edition) (Blu-ray)



THE FINE PRINT AND GENERAL Amazon UK FAQ
1. Prices are approximate since the exchange rate varies constantly (currently around 1.58 USD/). Amazon UK does not charge you until
shipment and the exchange rate then will determine the exact price.

2. Shipped to US prices factor in the removal of Value Added Tax (around 17%) which US consumers do not pay for buying from UK. Standard shipping for
most single sets is 3.08 (around $5USD). If you combine shipments, the additional items are about 1 each. Normally US consumers
don't have to worry about customs duties, but there is supposed to be some sort of daily allowance (maybe per package) on imported
goods, but I've never heard of anyone of the forums that have ever been charged for an order for personal use including some very large $$ orders.

3. Many US Credit Cards charge a foreign currency exchange fee. This varies b/w cards, but typically is around 3% which can be added
directly to the charge or often listed as a separate line item. There are cards that do not charge this fee most notably Capital One cards
plus a number of the Premium co-branded cards from Chase, AMEX, Citi though these usually charge a yearly fee. Discover Card is free,
but I don't think Amazon UK accepts it. Amazon does allow you the "option" of being charged in USD to avoid the 3% CC fee, but for that
convenience they pad their exchange rate 3.5-4% so you end up paying more. Most of the time you are better off charging it in native currency
even if you don't have the option of a Currency Free Card.

4. You can sign in to any of the international Amazon sites with your normal Amazon US account name and password. All your shipping/billing
information should be there already.

5. Amazon UK does NOT normally accept Amazon US gift cards and Amazon account cash balances. Those are specific to the originating country.

6. Regular shipping from Amazon UK is usually through Royal Mail and average shipping time is around a week during non holiday
periods (5-8 business days). Royal Mail packages are almost always delivered by USPS. There are times Amazon UK has used
other carriers (DHL) and this is usually far slower averaging 14-21 days. Unfortunately you can't really request which service is used.

Ordered from UK before and it always shows the US conversion but not with the Bond set.

Anyone else not showing conversion?

I don't think the currency conversion applies to preorders

Flipit said:   Ordered from UK before and it always shows the US conversion but not with the Bond set.

Like mf6764 said since the exchange rate changes constantly, Amazon UK can't list the USD price until it can charge you
so preorders will always be listed is GBP.

You will almost always pay more by allowing Amazon to do the conversion -- today's official conversion is 1.58085
while AmazonUk is charging 1.6423 (3.9% convenience fee). Unless you have a really awful CC, most of them only charge 3%
and some quite a bit less

I think my Pay Pay MC is only 3%

So to confirm, we avoid letting Amazon do the conversion by simply using an credit card??

I am so ready to pull the trigger on this, even though it is a bit of a gamble on if it will be region free...

Mulox said:   So to confirm, we avoid letting Amazon do the conversion by simply using an credit card??

Well you have to tell Amazon to charge you in GBP and turn off their currency converter in the account settings under Payment Settings.

I can't remember on a preorder if there is a prompt at checkout like with an instock order, but to be safe just turn it off if you don't
want to have Amazon make the exchange. Then you're CC will be charge when the items ship and if you are subject to Foreign Currency
Conversion Fee you should see it a couple days later.

A couple of the items are now labeled Region Free. That gives you full protection in case the sets pull a surprise and Amazon Uk will
bear the full cost of return. In the past when people accidentally bought region locked discs without checking I know there were several
posters who reported Amazon just paid for return anyway.

There have been a couple blu-ray sets I was considering ordering from Amazon UK because they were much cheaper but, I was wondering, do you have to pay any customs charges or other fees besides the cost of the set & shipping?

Also, has anyone ordered the UK Torchwood series 1-4 blu-ray boxset and are there any issues with playing on a US blu-ray player or ps3?

If you are importing the US from UK, I've never heard of anyone being charged customs fees. Supposedly there is supposed to be some daily import limit,
but I've never run across it. I think there are some items that may get charged, but Bluray don't seem to be on the list. The other exception I've
heard some people make is international shipping via UPS should be avoided for all sorts of extra fees.

I would careful with Torchwood Complete. I was almost set to buy it a few months ago, but as I understand the first 3 seasons are fine on all equipment (region free and no 50Hz),
but the 4th season/Miracle Day is 1080i50. If you have compatible equipment you should be OK, but Sony (incl PS3) choke on 50Hz. Panasonics are hit
or miss and some can play 50Hz, but not convert it to 60hz so some US TV can't play it. I have since upgraded to a nice Oppo so have started thinking about it
again due to the price difference.

50Hz Compatible Players/Discussion

I have ordered several times from AUK and never had a problem.

FYI all Blu-Ray's are region free so no worries there. I just get worried when I do not see the exact US cost at checkout. Mine says 78 and some odd change Euros at checkout.

Oh well, I have many of the Connery films in BR already. I dont know why they are waiting so long to release GoldenEye, which for my money is the best of the post-Connery films (I have a soft spot for Live and Let Die). Casino Royale is OK. I would consider buying the entire set but the Quantum of Solace is so bad that its one of my worst films ever and kills the set for me.

All bluray are NOT region free -- about 50-60% of Region B (mainly Europe) are free.
Amazon UK lists their sales in GBP () not Euros ($1.58/ vs 1.25USD/Euro)

Exchange rates can be found at xe.com, but obviously will be some difference by late September so Amazon can't convert until it's time. If you
see a price in USD at checkout, you are likely overpaying anyway since Amazon currency exchange is almost always worse than your CC.

MGM was releasing theses quite rapidly 3-4 years ago, but MGM's financial problem put all there restorations and most of their business on hold until they could get a new partner (20th Century Fox).


There will be individual releases of all nine of the unreleased 007 this fall maybe around the same time as the boxset. 3 will be released exclusive at WM, the other 6 are supposed to exclusive releases with expectations that BBY will get 3 and Target the other 3.

"Now then... we've learned from our industry sources that the 9 other classic Bond films (previously unreleased on Blu-ray) will all be made available as BD singles as well - initially as various retail exclusives and then more widely in early 2013. We know from their own website that WalMart will have GoldenEye, Octopussy and Diamonds Are Forever."

Digital Bits -- Bond info toward the bottom

On the Hitchcock movies... I assume most of the ones prior to 1955 were black and white? It's not clear which ones are color vs. b/w...

Also on the 50HZ compatibility discussion, I use a HTPC (LG rom drive) output to an Onkyo/Projector, so I assume it's N/A for me...

Most PC Bluray should play 50Hz fine, I'm assuming your projector should be able to handle 24/50/60Hz material fine. If your projector can't
handle 50Hz then you HTPC software needs to be able to convert to 60Hz. Most HTPC I know don't have a problem.
LG and Samsung standalones as a rule handle 50Hz without an issue and most of those can send native or 60Hz conversion to the monitor.


The Color/B&W took a bit of digging -- actually just pulled the information off the DVD Masterpiece and throw in the Aspect ratios assuming
they are maintained.

B&W
Saboteur (1942) 1.37
Shadow of a Doubt (1943) 1.37
Psycho (1960) 1.85


Color
Rope (1948) 1.37
Rear Window (1954) 1.66
The Trouble with Harry (1955) 1.85
The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) 1.85
Vertigo (1958) 1.85
The Birds (1963) 1.85
Marnie (1964) 1.85
Torn Curtain (1966) 1.85
Topaz (1969) 1.85
Frenzy (1972) 1.85
Family Plot (1976) 1.85

Cool, thanks for the info and digging that up! I am in for the Bond 50 and the Hitchcock set too... now crossing fingers for a good exchange rate and that these will be region free. Have to think about the Monsters set, it's tempting, but when you are forking out almost $300 for the other 2, well...

So is $123 USD the final US price with conversion and a 3% surcharge for the Bond 50 BR set?

Flipit said:   So is $123 USD the final US price with conversion and a 3% surcharge for the Bond 50 BR set?

No the $123 is/was the item and shipping (based on Friday's conversion) assuming a Currency Exchange Free card like a Cap One.


The exact price will be based on the exchange rate near the end of September when it ships.

How big swing should you expect in a month -- over the last 4 weeks the exchange has varied from 1.5500 - 1.5902.
Basically $121-124. Even with a 3% surcharge that's only an extra $3.75, still a rather large cushion over the US Set. Of course
that's assuming the final shipped price doesn't drop in the meantime, but so far the prices of these boxes had been
pretty steady for over a month.

More information today from The Digital Bits:

The 9 Bonds previously unreleased will be available in addition to the Boxset though through some really weird Exclusive Deals. The 3 at WalMart are already available
for preorder at $9.88 ea. I don't think the prices have been released on the Target/BBY items though the next Upgrade and Save at BBY should be somewhere in mid October.

Still a bit before orders are shipped. Prices have been relatively stable, but a couple new details are drifting out.

The Limited Edition UK Hitchcock boxset is coming on/off line for order status today so I'm not sure if their order limit is getting close or some other
issue has cropped up.

The Special Bond book with the US set does not seem to be the full book that you can order online from Amazon or BN. The Exclusive Amazon Excerpted Edition
seems to be an significantly edited version with 71 of the original 330 pages. It also seems to be smaller in size and may not have the cool outer slipcase
that the full edition has.

Both UK Hitchcock's and Monsters sets are now officially listed as Region Free so even if there is a slight chance that turns out to be incorrect Amazon
should have to pay return shipping.

First partial review of the UK Hitchcock set seems to confirm the region free status of the movie discs, but at least a few of the movies (may affect all)
don't have the original Mono soundtracks and only include the remastered 5.1 tracks. Apparently with all the extra language tracks necessary to accommodate
the European releases, this is a common issue. So far at least Vertigo has been noted to only have the new audio track with no option of listening to the
original. For some folks this can be a deal breaker, for others not such a problem.

There have also been some odd mistakes made in the redoing the "Frenzy" -- beginning titles/credits overlays were re-done to allow some better film
elements to be used. but the fonts aren't the same as were used in the original and there are some very odd Typos/misspellings of words and even some of
the Crew names (Fictitious is now Fictiticious, Peter Handford is now Peter Hanford, Angela Martelli has been renamed Angelea Mertelli. These were sent
out as Check Discs to special consultants so there is hope that some of these things might be fixed prior to actual production and shipment, but it's
awfully late in the cycle. It's also quite likely that some of the issues may affect the US set though at least the US sets are much more likely to contain
the original mono Audio tracks based on past releases.

The UK Bond set has 2 possible issues. The UK site still lists Quantum of Solace as Region B only despite that every other disc is listed as region free.
There has been no confirmation as to whether this is just a carryover from the standalone release or if this indeed will be locked -- Amazon UK is
extremely unreliable for this type information. The bigger problem as in the Hitchcock set is the likelihood of the audio tracks only including the
remastered 5.1 tracks and not also the original Mono 1.0 or Stereo 2.0 tracks. The US sets should include both options, but again past UK Bonds have
removed the original audio tracks in order to add more language tracks. Many people do still prefer the remastered audio, but others at least want to have
the option of listening to the cleaned up original tracks. If this is an issue for you, stay tuned for further reviews

So what is the big deal with mono 1.0 and 2.0?

Also, if QOS is B then just grab a US copy and stick it in the set.

The deal for some people is they want the original version and not the redone versions. They don't like the newer surround mixes and say they don't sound correct
or authentic to their ears. For those folks paying extra may be worth it to them -- it's always comes down to preferences.

Yes, if QOS turns out to be locked then the cheaper option is still to buy just the US QOS disc and substitute it, but this is still only conjecture.

Been buying most of my Blurays on AzUK. They have great prices, even with the currency conversion and shipping. Never had a problem - they all play fine.

From Downton Abbey, to Sherlock, to MI boxed set and numerous other sets, i have NEVER had one problem.

I'm guessing you don't have a Sony player if Sherlock (assuming the TV series) played since it 108oi50Hz

That's a bummer about QoS and the bonus disc... a showstopper for me indeed. As soon as someone is able to confirm region free for the whole set, I am all over this!

Bummer if true -- not so bad about QOS since I already have the standalone anyway, but the Bonus disc would be more of a loss for those without a
region free player. I'll post updates as soon as anyone from UK gets a set and can check. Hopefully those reports will surface before any of the preorders
ship.

Yea I don't have QOS yet, but I do have almost all of the other movies already, so I was debating buying up all of the single releases but I would definitely prefer this set instead to get the bonus disc...

After the first review/evaluation copies of the UK discs were sent out and several problems were found and reported back to Universal this message has now popped up on thedidigitalbits.com which is pretty reliable. The preorder status still says Oct 1, but I'd expect that to change soon. Most people are expecting the same delay to hit the US sets as well.

"Universal Studios Home Entertainment is postponing the Blu-ray release of Alfred Hitchcock: The Masterpiece Collection to October 30, 2012. Certain imperfections with the product have come to light and, as a result, we are delaying the release date to correct these points. Our goal is to always deliver the best possible product to our consumers."

First pictures are out of the Region B Bond 50 set -- no official reviews yet -- and it appears that 22 of the discs are A/B/C region free and Quantum of Solace remains
labelled B only. I haven't seen anyone who has tested the discs, but for those people who have ordered from Amazon and don't want to mess with a single disc that may
be locked, it's still time to cancel. First reports again strongly suggest that the original mono/stereo audio tracks are not included on the UK set and only will be
on the US set.
New reviews are that the previously released movies will be missing the Mono/Stereo original, but the 9 unreleased "new" Blurays will have the originalaudio tracks just like the US set.

BBY price appears to be listed as $149.99 so there may be a significant price drop coming from the Amazon.com order by the end of Tuesday.

The Hitchcock set has been postponed at least a month for everyone due to "technical" issues.

So it looks like both the QoS disc and the 23rd bonus disc are confirmed Region B only... too bad. Guess I will have to wait for a price drop on the US set. I am surprised region free players are not more popular now...

Mulox said:   So it looks like both the QoS disc and the 23rd bonus disc are confirmed Region B only... too bad. Guess I will have to wait for a price drop on the US set. I am surprised region free players are not more popular now...

No only QOS is confirmed Region B. The Bond Bonus disc has A/B/C logos on it and several people on the UK forums have reported them region free.

Ah ok... so the listing on Amazon is wrong then. I supposed my only other option is to eBay QOS and replace it with a single US version...

Picked up a Monsters "coffin" collection. Thanks!!!

Mulox said:   Ah ok... so the listing on Amazon is wrong then. I supposed my only other option is to eBay QOS and replace it with a single US version...

According the folks who have the disc, the bonus disc is definitely not locked.

This a picture of the actual disc:

UK Bond 50 Disc 23 (Bonus)


You can either eBay the current OOP Quantum or wait a couple weeks and pick it up when they re-release it.
Amazon has the new QOS listed 10/23/2012. Currently available for less than $17, but with all the others likely to be less than $10, I suspect QOS will
decrease soon. I suspect this will just be the same disc from the 1st set with different cover-art

So I currently own all of the individual releases, except the 9 new ones obviously. Aside from the audio track differences, and the 23rd bonus disc, are there any other differences in the content of each disc (ex. other extras)??

Also, does anyone know if Wal-Mart is going to have the 3 exclusives available in-store tomorrow, or is it online only?

FYI for those of you that already own previously released Bond movies, and are interested in buying individuals to complete your collection:

Exclusive releases from Best Buy, comes out on 10/23, should be $10 each:
You Only Live Twice
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
The Spy Who Loved Me

Exclusive releases from WalMart (out now), $10 each:
Diamonds Are Forever
Octopussy
Goldeneye

Exclusive releases from Target (out now), $10 each:
Tomorrow Never Dies
A View to a Kill
The Living Daylights

So far I've not heard of any differences in the boxset vs the standalones other the Disc 23. Actually a couple of the older discs have some extras that have been left off the new
releases.

The standalones are available at some Walmarts now though people have seemed to have a hard time finding them. The same goes for the Target releases and
by report the BBY aren't available at all yet and expected release may not be until 10/23.

Thanks, I found out the same thing... no real differences between the individuals vs. the boxed set, so I went ahead and picked up the first 6 from WalMart/Target... I had no problems, there were plenty on the shelves. Now to wait 15 more days for the BB ones and I will finally complete my set!

I have all the original standalone releases plus Never Say Never so and the lack of anything new, I think I'll just buy the standalones. I'm not a huge fan on those slide in slots in
the books for the disc anyway. I think the BBY Bonds are due to come out after the Upgrade and Save program ends. I don't really like the cover art of the new
releases so I may investigate printing off some of the custom covers available on some of the web sites. I may eventually import the uncut version of CR once the UK releases
their individual though I'm not really sure it's worth it and probably group it with the Die Hard 4 to get the Unrated Cut since it looks like it may never be released in the US.

I do have both the Universal Monsters set and the Hitchcock LE set is on order if they can get all the glitches fixed so they can ship it.
