- Update Dec. 8, 2013 -

I contacted Warner Brothers through their US site (the Canadian one is fairly useless) here: [...]
After a while (about two weeks), I guess it eventually filtered its way to Canadian HQ in Toronto where someone eventually got back to me. From there, it was a quick email back and forth to get an address for where they could send the correct disc.

Easy enough, but a step that shouldn't have been necessary in the first place. But at least my HP Wizards Collection is now complete!

- Original Review -

When it comes down to the look, finish and build quality, it all boils down to: they aren't kidding around. Stunning and extremely hefty, WB has managed to put together the definitive Harry Potter collection (*one caveat, below). The box itself is a tribute to the mystery and magical aura of Hogwarts.

Each "Year" (film) is stored in its own custom booklet with awesome attention to detail. And the extras (digital copy, horcrux locket, maps, blueprints, books) are appreciated - although there was the potential for even more to be done.

The regular price is very steep, but if you can catch the right sale, it's definitely worth a bit of a splurge.

* The caveat is that even after so much time has gone by, and after so many sets and customer complaints (even here on Amazon.ca), WB still has not yet corrected the problem identified by other customers: Disc 1 of The Philosopher's Stone is supposed to be the Extended Edition + Theatrical Release + Bonus material. However, like those other people, I received only the Theatrical + bonus (and a poorly designed menu to boot). This is rather disappointing and enough to knock a star off the rating. I'm waiting for WB to respond to my query about having this situation rectified.

Wonderful presentation!! Any Harry Potter collector's dream collection. Just one problem though. Wrong disc 1 which is the only flaw with this collection. Amazon could not replace the disc but they did offer me a discount. Luckily though, I was able to get a replacement disc from Warner Brothers Canada shipped to me. Now I have the complete set and could not be happier! Highly recommended only if you have the correct discs.

I bought this as a gift for my wife who is an avid Harry Potter fan. She loved it. The box is pretty heavy, and the build is very good. Any Harry Potter fan would love it.

I read some of the reviews where some mentioned about the 7th and the 8th version of the movies being sold as "ultimate collector editions" in the market, but the ones in the box are not those ones. So that was a slight disappointment.

Overall, I am very pleased with the product, as well as the collectibles inside.

I bought this collection, expecting it to be just a boxed set with DVDs with extras. Instead, it is a huge (10 1/2" x 11 1/2" x 13") chest, with drawers and compartments, including a secret compartment with a hidden bonus DVD. This is a limited numbered collection, with the numbered certificate, and a small scroll like paper with the digital download registration numbers, a horcrux, art prints of the scenes, sketches of some buildings, a fabric, hangable map or Hogwart's school and grounds, and many more collectibles. Each year includes a DVD, Blu-ray, and 2 more discs of extras. And the last 2 movies include the 3-D version of the movie.
(Hint: the hidden bonus disc can be located by fully spreading the drawers to each side, and reaching in the space to feel for a fabric tag to pull it out. I hunted high and low for it and found it by accident when I wasn't even looking for it.)

This amazing box set arrived completely perfect to my hands, I was amazed when I realized how big and heavy it was! and surprised when I opened it and checked out all those amazing features it comes with! the only small problem was that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone did not come with the 2 versions of the movie as advertised (theatrical and extended, plus the in movie experience. Besides this, Harry potter and the order of the phoenix was kinda damage) but this wasn't a problem for too long because I immediately e-mailed WB letting them know my problem and they sent me the right discs, so it's ok know! EXTENSIVE BONUS FEATURES, LOADS OF ARTICLES AND ALL MOVIES COME WITH THIS FASCINATING DOCUMENTARY OF THE MAKING OF THE ENTIRE SAGA... It took me about one month to watch everything completely! I simply love it! it is worth every penny... the material of the box seems very solid and stable, I'd suggest to take care of it every know and then, cleaning it a little bit with a soft tissue and treating it carefully so It last forever! Simply perfect! not a regular customer item to buy though if you wanna see the HP movies! this is for fans and collectors only, and that's why its high price

This product was shipped with care and arrived without a scratch of damage. I am very impressed with the speed of delivery and the condition upon arrival. The product itself is the perfect addition to my collection. I have seen reviews on the Wizards Collection and what's in it. I have chosen to keep it in mint condition and never open the seal, I am just happy to own something so fantastic.

One of the coolest product for and hardcore Harry Potter fan, however maybe buy it somewhere else as my box arrived with quite a bit a damage on the exterior of it which i find completely unacceptable for a 450$ product.

Got this as a birthday gift for my wife. We both love the series, and the extra features are fantastic to go through. Have not encountered any disc issues as of yet.
