The UK branch of Universal Studios will release Steven Spielberg's Oscar winning film Schindler's List (1993) as a Limited Collector's Set on April 8th. The release is now available for pre-order at Amazon.UK.
Steven Spielberg's epic Holocaust drama won seven Oscars, including statuettes for Best Picture and Director. Oskar Schindler (Neeson) is a Nazi Party member out to profit from the war. The local Jewish population provide a ready source of cheap labour for his factory, but Oskar's mercenary instincts become coupled with more altruistic ones when he discovers that the Jews he does not employ are likely to be sent to concentration camps. From then on, he attempts to save as many Jews from imprisonment as possible, whilst keeping on the right side of the Nazi authorities.

I have so many (limited Editions) in my collection and have yet to see one that is numbered, even Amazon UK's TITANIC 1000 copies Limited Collector's Edition is not numbered and still available. maybe they should be stamped... 1.Limited Edition. 2. Limited Edition till people Stop buying them. 3. Limited Edition but don't worry we will still be selling them in 10 years time.
Limited Editions can be a rip off to the consumers who buy them and the companies should do something about it or government consumer boards should look into the term Limited Edition and explain the meaning.
This is making me think Best Buy may get an exclusive Digibook version of this. They have had them for both of the previous major Universal releases (Jaws and E.T.) so I'm thinking its likely they'll have one for this as well.
@remilhi: My Gone With The Wind is numbered, my Ben Hur is numbered, my Lawrence of Arabia is numbered (on the film frame) and my Ten Commandments is numbered. All of these are still on sale somewhere. I see the number as more of a gimmick than adding any value. There are too many copies of the same item for them to have any long term value. Let's face it. Twenty years from now when you're buying TC for the fifteenth time on the latest video format (a holographic 24K 4D direct to brain plug-in?) your limited edition BD set from the first decade of the twenty-first century like all primitive"low res" 1080P BDs will have the same worth as a 80's movie videocassette has today. Tapes and discs don't appreciate in value. These are not rare works of art. They are mass produced and easily discarded consumer products.
