    Despite the photos, there are 14 discs in this bad boy, and
    the SRP is only $99.92!! That price alone = less that $10 per disc and the actual store price on release day will most likely be only around $80 bucks!

    Clicky here for a complete list of features!:

    This was an unplanned investment. Why does it have to be soooo cool?

    Well, it's just cool on principal if nothing else. Besides, I may end up gettting just I, II Donner Cut and SR. Though that still requires starting to save now. :)

    2. 3-Hour doc on the making of Superman Returns
    3. Complete & re-mastered Fleisher cartoons

    Like I said.... way too cool! :D I will admit that I wasn't too keen on the idea when I was thinking of it as just four movies... and two of which I didn't care for. But after seeing all of that bonus material.... well, I must admit to a change of heart. So even though I hadn't planned on it, looks like I will be saving up for it. [face_dancing] There are so many cool bonus features, but I can't wait to see the complete & re-mastered Fleisher cartoons.

    For anyone who is 'on the fence' about this set, Amazon has it up for
    pre-order at the unbelieveable price of $69.99 + free shipping!
    (That's $5 per disc!)

    You can order it from them here:
    AMAZON SUPERMAN ULTIMATE BOX SET

    I'm a firm believer in Midnight Madness myself, so I'll be waiting to get my chubby little hands on a copy from WM on 11/28 @ 12:01! :D

    I got your text message about this!! It's an awesome deal, but the appeal of the midnight run is still very strong. :)

    There might be a chance to get it early from Amazon as well, though...

    That's never happened to me, though. In my past experience, Amazon stuff always gets to me at least a day after street date. With something I'm anticipating this much, I JUST CAN'T TAKE THAT CHANCE! [face_worried] & GOD HELP THEM if it were to arrive damaged in some way! :mad:
    I know, I'm NUTS!8-} Can't help it! :)

    Did I just set a record for the amount of smileys in 1 short post, or what?!? ;)

    Also, on top of the features you have already listed Bill...each version of each of the Reeve films has a commentary track!!! That includes the Donner Cut!

    The commentary on the 2001 cut of Superman: The Movie is still the same one with Donner and Manky from the 2001 DVD, but the theatrical version commentary is with Ilya Salkind and Pierre Spangler. Salkind and Spangler also do the commentary for the Superman II theatrical version and Superman III as well.

    Lets also not forget the documentary on the Donner Cut disc, titled "Superman II: Restoring a Vision". Not sure how long that is, but my guess is its AT LEAST 30 mins long. :D
