Amazon's Blu-ray Gold Box Deal of the Day affects The Mel Brooks Collection. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment's set bundles together nine films from comedy filmmaker Mel Brooks' screen career, including:
The Gold Box deal presents this nine-disc, region-free package at a 64% markdown from its SRP of $79.98; it offers 1080p transfers and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks alongside many special features, such as behind-the-scenes featurettes and audio commentaries on selected titles.
Through today, Amazon is offering The Mel Brooks Collection on Blu-ray for $28.99.
Does anyone know what the packaging is for this set? Is it a book format with the discs set into cardboard sleeves? Is it basically a box that houses 9 individual regular Blu-ray cases? Thanks for any insight!
I already have three of the movies, but I couldn't pass up this deal, it still amounts to less that $5 per movie that I don't already own. The book that comes in the first release of this would have been nice to own, but oh well.
Great collection and great price but its too bad that they got rid of the old box set that came with the huge book. The original packaging along with the Planet of the Apes box set were very unique sets and are treasures in my collection.
Glad they released the films in more reasonable packaging. A friend of mine had the original set - the book was nice and all, but not something you'll find yourself flipping through time and again. Loved the set - disliked the packaging. Not a fan of releasing movies with all sorts of extra garbage that you might look at once: books, movie postcards, action figures, etc. They jack up the price for all that nonsense. Criterion is the ONLY company that can justify their prices. Rarely disappointed in their product. Just ordered my copy for $28.99. Perfect timing! Was ready to order from a marketplace seller - but happened to check out Blu-ray.com first. Nice!
A terrific deal, but one caveat for us international buyers: Young Frankenstein is Region A locked. Certainly not a deal-breaker by any means, but something to keep in mind (all other discs are region free).
