Just a heads up for those they may not have seen them yet, but over on theonering.net you will see the box art for the November releases of the Director's Cut of LOTR.


I really don't know what to do. I'm still waiting for the Star Wars 30th Anniversary set.
But TLOTR: I don't know. At least, even if they do a set at the end, people who have bought each chapter separately won't have been robbed if they're all like that.
then again, if they do so much for "only" on film, what will they do when the trilogy's complete?
