Amazon Canada: $10 Off The Hobbit Trilogy [Blu Ray] - Now $50 & Free Shipping
Amazon Canada just dropped their price on The Hobbit Trilogy (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy] from $59.99 down to $49.99 with free shipping.
Here is a quick price comparison for my lovely Moosers! This same boxed set costs:
- $59.96 @ Walmart Canada
- $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
- $59.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada (OOS)
- $49.99 + $10 shipping @ HMV Canada
Only HMV matches Amazon Canada's price, but the shipping cost at HMV makes it not worth purchasing from there. Overall, Amazon Canada has the best deal on this newly released box set of all three of The Hobbit movies.
I may be obsessed. In fact - I am obsessed. I was given The Hobbit Trilogy on Blu Ray (this exact box set) mere days after it came out. To my utter shock, this is a huge nine-disk set inside a very space efficient box. The disks are gorgeous in black with silver text.
The first three disks are The Hobbit movies on Blu Ray - one disk for each movie. The next three disks are dedicated to special features - yes - three disks worth of special features! Each of the original disks still has special features so all of this is bonus material! The last three disks are The Hobbit movies in DVD format.
I have but one criticism - only five of the nine disks have a pretty Celtic (okay Hobbitish) frame. It would have been nice - for consistency - if all nine disks had the Celtic looking frame around the front rim of the disk. For example, the three Blu-Ray movies are each different - the first has no frame, and the second and third have frames but each are different.
Since receiving my copy, I have watched all three movies in Blu-Ray. Actually, I have watched An Unexpected Journey one had a half times, The Desolation of Smaug twice, and The Battle of The Five Armies only once. I really love this set. Originally, I thought the second movie was my favourite but the first movie is really up there. The box looks nice too, but I wish I had gotten Future Shop's Steel book version before Future Shop disappeared. However, there was a premium on that box set.
Overall, this is an amazing set with tons of bonus features for fans. At just $50 for the set, you are paying approximately $5.55 per disk.
As this set costs over $25, it will ship to you free of charge.
