Amazon Deal of the Day: Star Trek, Original Motion Picture Collection (Expired)

Posted June 16, 2011 07:52 AM by Josh Katz

ParamountAs part of Amazon's High-Def Week, save 61% today on Paramount Pictures' Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection Blu-ray. The set bundles together all six theatrical releases starring the "Original Series" Star Trek cast members; these films include Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Amazon's discounted price is $54.99, or roughly $9.17 per movie. As of now, this box set is the only way to own the first six Star Trek films from Amazon's website - Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier are not available for individual purchase outside of the Original Motion Picture Collection (the only other way to own Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is through the Star Trek: Motion Picture Trilogy set).

Note: only the theatrical release versions of the Star Trek movies are included in this bundle.

This sale lasts through midnight tonight.

This is just me, but I would have picked it up for $49, but I'm going to wait at $54.95. I see it was $59.95 for about 3 months in 2010, and was also $54.99 last Black Friday. If it was Director's cuts for $54, definitely yes. That's just me.

Got this for around $34.00 used a while back at GoHastings.com.

Thanks for the theatrical cut "head's up." I'll definitely wait... good things will come. And yes, a cheaper price too because I am certain I will never watch episode 5 again.

Not bad, but I got mine for $48 through DeepDiscount last year. Overall though, a good collection.

I got these when Best Buy was running the promotion of buy a Samsung BD player and get this set for $20. I told my sales associate I would never buy a Samsung BD player as they are crap and bought a different brand and had the floor manager override the collection for $20. The collection could be better but for $20 I can't complain. I would wait for the directors' cuts if I were going to pay this much.

I was wondering if I should wait for new versions, but I decided to go for it. I sold my 10-movie DVD box set a few months ago, and I missed having these films in my collection! Got a surprisingly high amount for those DVDs too - even after I get the TNG blu-ray set, it'll probably still amount to a free upgrade.

It is propably true that Paramount will do better HD transfers in the future, but one would expect such a release to tie into the next Trek flick, and they don't even have a script down yet so it may be some wait until there is a superior set. Also considering the funds that may go into a Next Generation television series release, including new effects shots, etc., Paramount may not want to put so much money simply into the Trek franchise. Just food for thought.

I already own 2, 4, and 6, and paying $50 bucks for the other three (and the extra disc) simpy doesn't make sense for me. I wish I could, though.

the human adventure, is just beginning...
I think only true Trekker's need apply. I got this when it was released several years ago for the same price or better for Father's Day and I was happy enough. To be honest, I was dying to just own "Star Trek-tmp" in the original theatrical cut for years. Some of the aspect's of the late Robert Wise's Director's Cut are very appealing, but many others hit a sour note with me. As with "Blade Runner"- I would prefer to own all the different versions,
complete, remastered and final. Until that fateful day--this will have to do...

I'd been looking forward to this deal all week, but when I saw the price I thought "Meh." Don't know why, but I guess I was expecting a better deal. It's still tempting, but since I own Director's Cut of 1 on DVD and II on BD I think I'll just hold out for the ultimateremastereddirector'scutbigolboxset edition.

Are they ever going to release the other movies separately? The Trekkie in my life already has 2, 4 and 6, and also detests 1 and 5, so really he only needs 3. I know they're available in the UK, but how about here as well?

I was hoping for a better price as well, given all the other markdowns in the past couple weeks. If the price was closer to $8 a film I may have bitten.

May I remind people looking to buy this that the director's cuts of 1, 2 & 6 are not included, that 2 is the only film in the set to have received a proper remastering from the original negative, that the set has been criticized for excessive DNR and that tweaking in some scenes has resulted in significant loss of detail (most notably in this scene from 5: http://img.trekmovie.com/images/merchandise/tos_movies_bd/tff_brightness.jpg ) For more details, see here: http://trekmovie.com/2009/05/21/review-star-trek-original-motion-picture-collection-on-blu-ray/

I have seen your post in just about every star trek forum I have been and I believe most people are aware of this by now.

I bought it anyway.

Shame only Khan has a decent restoration, I'll probably just hand onto my DVD editions and pick up Khan on its own.
Or maybe pick-up the "trilogy" set.

I would've bought it for $9 even per movie, but not for $9.17, which is a very unlucky number combination in Klingon numerology.

I own this set along with the TNG set. I think they look great on blu-ray. Huge upgrade over the DVDs. I wouldn't mind directors' cuts of all the films though. I miss THG crew. They actually had emotion and gave moral lessons (unlike Star Trek).
