ORIGINAL REVIEW: I received my set last week. This set is heavy and I was a bit worried about potential damage during shipping. But it is really well packed and arrived in perfect condition.
The set itself is beautifull. The quality of the materials used for this, is way above average. I was not expecting this type of quality. It is sturdy and well built.
But like the other reviewers, the blu-ray disc of The Philosopher's Stone is the wrong version. The specs and, the description on the packaging, says that it should contain the Theatrical and Extended versions of the movie as well as the Picture-in-Picture experience. It only has the Theatrical version.
From what I read on various forums, it appears that all Canadian sets are affected.
What is the most frustrating thing about this is that Amazon and Warner bros have not acknowledged this problem.
I contacted Warner Bros twice via email and called their Toronto office as well. They never replied to my emails and my phone call was never returned.
And as for Amazon, after three attempts to get them to acknowledge that there is problem with the sets, the only solution they provided me was to return the set for a full refund. That doesn't solve the problem.
Come on Amazon, help us out on this issue!
So buyer beware. Until this issue is resolved I would hesitate to buy this set.
Most of the discs are fine, except for The Philosopher's Stone. The first disc, which is supposed to have the theatrical AND extended versions of the movie, ONLY HAS THE THEATRICAL VERSION. Also, instead of a digital copy disc of The Philosopher's Stone/The Chamber of Secrets, my set had 2 copies of The Prisoner of Azkaban/The Goblet of Fire.
These disc issues have tarnished my enjoyment of this set. I have the extended version on DVD (from the UCE set), but that's not the point. It was supposed to be included in this set, and it's not. For the price I paid, I expect all the discs to be present and to have the content as advertised.
*** UPDATE - Sep 25, 2012 ***
I received a replacement set from Amazon with all of the correct digital copy discs.
As for the first disc of The Philosopher's Stone which only has the theatrical version...there IS hope. Warners has acknowledged that there IS an issue and are working on creating new discs. Contact Heather.Borg@warnerbros.com for details on how to receive a new disc.
All in all, this box set is pretty amazing. It's just annoying that there were issues with the discs.
*** UPDATE - Oct 26, 2012 ***
I received a replacement disc from Warner Brothers for The Philosopher's Stone. This new disc has BOTH versions of the movie, plus the In-Movie experience.
If you've purchased this set and disc 1 of The Philosopher's Stone only has the theatrical version, just send an e-mail to the address mentioned above, and you should get a replacement disc within a month or so.
All is right with the world again...
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.
