Marvel Cinematic Universe Limited Edition Collector's Set Blu-ray Denied!
The Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2 High-Def Blu-Ray drops on December 4 and the MSRP is a staggering $120. It has the extended version of "Measure of a Man" which I didn't even know existed. The first one Star Trek: The Next Generation - Season One Blu-ray is pretty awesome and this one should be even better.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled 10-Disc Limited Edition Six-Movie Collector's Set Blu-ray is listed at $139. It comes in Nick Fury's briefcase and has a glowing Tesseract. UPDATE: The Avengers Assembled set has been delayed indefinitely thanks to its similarity to the trademarked Rimowa briefcase designs. I kinda saw this coming.

Transformers Limited Edition Collector's Trilogy Seven-Disc Blu-ray Boxed Set has a list price of $150. Each one is hand-signed by Michael Bay.

These are pretty tempting offers. But they're pretty pricey. I've paid a lot for "Making of" books, but never more than $50 for a movie.

Obviously, someones buying them though. Is that you?

This week's poll is: Would you ever pay over $100 for your favorite movie?

As always, next week I'll share your best comments from this post. So, check back on September 13th.

I once wound up paying $200 for the complete GI JOE series but that was because someone stole the first one after it was delivered to the wrong address. Other than that, it'd have to be encased in gold and diamonds to pay that much.

I've watched them all on NetFlix. Other than the boxed sets of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which clock in at fifty bucks, I don't shell out that much money.

It would all depend...when the economy was good and I had more money then I needed and no child I would buy the $100 season sets of Star Trek TNG.... now though I am broke and most of our money seems to go to bills....so probably not. EXCEPT if they would release the ORIGINAL theatrical version of Star Wars...I very well may

It would be rare that I would pay that much. Usually prices go down over the years, so I would probably wait and see if it goes down to less than that. I suppose if I wanted it badly enough, though, and had money to burn...who can say no to TNG? :D
