    Okay, the blue ray are out: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B006PFCQR4/mi6thehomeofj-21
    Not expenisve either. Will they be releasing them on standard DVD too though? Surely they will. Wish they would show us the packaging.

    Like the little video.

    Will they be releasing them on standard DVD? You'd think they would. I'm eager to see the packaging too. It would be a pity if they're the same as the 40th Anniversary ones. I don't like how the black and white photos take up so much room. I like the colour photo in the middle but it needs to be bigger I reckon.

    So just the one hour doco and that it? Not the stuff from the UEs

    I think all the stuff from the UEs will be there, plus the one hour doc.

    Okay thanks
  • Connery's head looks really awkward on that body IMHO. I guess joe public won't notice.

    I'm amazed at how reasonably priced this set is. 90 quid for 22 Blu-Ray's is pretty good going. I find the whole "available now to pre-order" notion positively ridiculous, though. It isn't released until October for gawd's sake! I'll pre-order mine from HMV online a week or so before then and should hopefully receive it on the Saturday, maybe even the Friday, beforehand. (As was the case with both the CR and QOS DVD's.) I'm certainly glad I hung fire on buying any Bond BD's exept the Craig classics, knowing that a box set was bound to put in an appearance during 007's golden anniversary.

    Yeah, it's a cheap price.

    Does anyone know when the standard 50th Anniversary DVD (non blue ray) box set will be announced?

    I'd like to pre-order the box set, but I need some info first. So I've got a question for anyone that has the UE DVD collection, especially those of you who got it from the UK:

    Do your DVDs have Greek subtitles?

    I'm asking because I don't know if there is only one version of the set having every available subtitle, or there are different versions each one with different set of subtitles...
    I'd appreciate any help.

    I don't think it will be and it'll just be released with little fanfare on the same day, 1st October.

    I'll be able to check in an hour @gt007. I'll report back to you then.
  • DVD? I doubt that they will release a box in that format again.

    Craig's legs have been stretched to make him the same height as the other Bond actors on the box cover. :D

    You think they will actually be released then?

    SecretAgentFan, why do you think they won't release them?

    That's the release date of the Blu-rays so it would be stupid for it to be any other day.

    How do you spell 'Greek' in Greek, @gt007? The subtitles in listed in their own language. Nifty, but no good for people like me!

    As soon as you reply I can let you know either way.

    Oh right, forgot about that. It's "Ελληνικά" or "ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΑ" in capitals.
  • I might have missed it but I did not see any images of George or OHMSS in general on the promotional video. No love for George I guess! =((

    I wonder the same thing, but with Swedish subtitles insted. It´s Svenska or SVENSKA in Swedish. :D

    Greek, Swedish and Norwegian subtitles are included on the region 2, UK, UE DVDs.

    Thanks for spelling the names in capitals as that's what the font was in. Had I only had lower case, the Greek would have still stumped me.
  • I'm sure someone has already asked... but will the "new to Blu" Bond titles be sold separately?

    I already own the following Bonds on Blu-ray:
    DR. NO
    FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE
    GOLDFINGER
    THUNDERBALL
    LIVE AND LET DIE
    THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN
    LICENCE TO KILL
    CASINO ROYALE
    QUANTUM OF SOLACE

    The remaining films I have in the two-disc UE editions.

    Of those, the only titles I am willing to double-dip for (buy the Blu-ray) are OHMSS and THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS.

    For the others, the standard-def UEs are perfectly satisfactory.

    It would really suck if the nine "new to Blu" titles -- among them OHMSS & TLD -- were only available in the 50th Anniversary box set. SUCK.

    Thank you very much @Samuel001! I just placed my order. :)

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if the menus are in lower or upper case and I figured you couldn't capitalize in the Greek alphabet, so I gave you both.

    So far, no. But at a later date, I'd guess so.

    thank god i now work at a job where i get paid roughly $400 per week.. i could pre-order this box set and not take a huge hit financially (though first i gotta wait til some bills are caught up)..

    thankfully, the only blu rays of Bond i own, are Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace... which i'll keep, but i'll box them away (with my Bond VHS tapes) now that this swanky and sleek looking box set will be on the way come the fall..

    what i wish/hope they do - is much like what the Fast And The Furious blu ray sets are doing, and that is keeping the ends similar, so that way when they are shelved, they still look like they belong with the rest of the set... i hope these new Bond blu rays will do the same when Skyfall is eventually released on blu ray.... it's nothing major - but for appearances sake, it would be nice - keeping things uniform.

    Thanks @Samuel001! Now I can order the bluray collection and feel safe about subs.

    Unfortunately, not yet.
  • Im very tempted to by this box set as £89 in the UK is a pretty good deal, but i need more info before i splash my cash on it. Does anyone know about the extras? Will they all be new discs with new menus or just a rehash of the ultimate editions like the last blu rays. Will the Quantum of Solace disc have much more than what the original release like the delux edition of Casino Royale?

    Does anyone know or can guess whats to be included. Thanks.
