Amazon Canada is offering 30% off the pre-order for Sherlock: The Complete Seasons 1 to 3 Limited Edition Gift Set [Blu-ray + DVD]. Originally $222, the set has now been reduced to $149.99.
First things first: I have been watching this set for months now and it has not been at the 'original retail price' on Amazon Canada. However, it has been hovering around $178 most the time. I first found out about this set even being in existence on the BBC Canada. They have the set currently priced at $197.98 and it has been at that price constantly - I have been watching.
This price is the absolute BEST price you will see on the set and I have only seen it at this price once before. That is when I first found out about the product. I was debating pre-ordering it to have the price change less than 12-hours after I found the set. Amazon Canada changes their product prices often, at different times of the day, and for no apparent reason at all. If you want this at a good price then order it when you see this post!
Here is what is included:
- Blu-Ray and DVD combos of all three current seasons of Sherlock
- A bonus disk with tons of amazing, juicy, never before seen material
- Limited edition collectible busts of Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman)
- Two limited edition collectible Art Cards
I am getting chills just thinking about this set. The busts are remarkable renditions of the two actors as the characters of Sherlock and Watson.
I am a HUGE fan of Sherlock Holmes. I am talking the character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not just the interpretation brought to us by Benedict Cumberbatch. I have read all the short stories several times. I own all the short stories. I have watched most of the TV episodes I could get with Jeremy Brett staring as Sherlock. I am not fond of Basil Rathbone, but he is tolerable. Benedict does an outstanding job and I would be more than pleased to own this set.
The set is actually reasonable priced. Given the price of buying just the Blu-Rays of each season separately, you would be paying at least $105 to $110 for all three seasons. With this set, you get two busts, art prints, and a disk with juicy bonus features for about $45 to $50 extra. *SQUEAL*
All orders of $25 or more ship from free from Amazon. This product will be released on the 4th of November 2014.
