    I think that looks great, It looks like a giant book that holds all 20 discs, two to a page held in by a rock design sleeve.

    This picture shows that this set is not simply a box that holds the original 3 seasons, and that this item has been designed and made from scratch.

    OK, so the Fraggles are not on the discs, but thats a minor thing, and maybe when it is released they might be?:excited:

    Love it, roll on Nov 4th.

    It looks ok. The bad thing about the discs being housed in sleeves is that they can scratch very easily (packed that way they often come scratched, denying you the opportunity to do it yourself).

    Instead of pictures of the Fraggles, it seems each disc has the "25 years" logo. They are really pushing this as an anniversary item...

    *lol* Well I don't think it is that minor, it makes the disks look a little like those bootleg full seasons you see on ebay :coy:.
    Sleeves worry me to..if it is such a important set to them you'd think they could afford hard plastic :o

    Agreed. You'd think they'd be careful with the contents. I mean, it stinks to think that when you get the complete series home, the disks are scratched & you cannot return them, because of the fact that most returned items need to be practically unused and unopened.

    This set up for housing the discs is like the way they did it for the complete series of The OC. it's in a little book type thing with a place to hold the discs on the page. well, dvdempire still has their price for 99 dollars. but it looks like there's no free shipping...butttttttttttttttttt, they also have a 10 dollar off coupon code that is good through the 15th of september. so takes it down to 89 plus shipping...that's a pretty good price

    But why pay for something you already own (seasons one-three)?

    I know, the Red short will be everywhere soon anyway, and the AUS season 4 will do fine until we get our own..It seems silly then to rebuy everything over a poster and a box if you don't truly need to...Unless you want to of course :). But this little diehard fan does not have the money:o
  13. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    And this fan could have the money if he weren't in college & if college funds weren't eating up what money that is earned.

    Episode #040 of the Henson.com Podcast is up and available and is all about The Complete Collection set! The cool part is the extended interview with Fraggle Producer Larry Mirkin! Here' the official description....

    In this episode we answer all your questions about the new Fraggle Rock Complete Collection DVD set that is in stores on November 4. We speak to Kristin Moss of Lionsgate to get the scoop on what fans can expect from the set and Norie Jones of HIT Entertainment about the beautiful poster that comes with the set. The centerpiece of this episode, however, is our lengthy interview with Fraggle Rock producer Larry Mirkin who also produced the special features for this DVD Collection. - 34:44

    That podcast was beyond sheer brillance.

    First of, I'm really disappointed that you did not address WHY they have put the standalone on hold, and apparently the Henson company supports HIT's poor decision on not giving us a very simple release date on the standalone boxset. Also your comment about "..is not out of the question" tells me that they did expect us to buy the complete set, and not releasing the stand alone season 4, is that correct ?

    You should have asked them why they think they can treat loyal customers like that and expect them to buy 3 seasons they already own, personally I don't believe it's worth to spend around $75 on something I already own just to get a poster....

    If the purpose is to convince the loyal customers to use more money on something they already own, then it did not work on this loyal customer.

    I will still recommend people to buy the Australian boxset of season 4 and download a dvd rip of the special features on the complete set, to punish HIT for it's poor decision. And reading the comments on Amazon confirms that others have the same thoughts.

    The podcast also says that the new Red Fraggle short will not be on the complete box set due to production timing, but that would be saved for something else. Most likely a season 4 stand alone! So that is good news for that if that's the root they take, and should. It was said that it was not out of the question.
    This way people would be able to get it along with season 4 it's self without buying the complete set. That would be great!

    Well the big question is what "not out of the question" means. They could have given a more clear answer about it, as I see it all they should say is a simple yes or no about releasing the standalone boxset.

    Since we don't know what the short is about or if it's done yet, then it could be saved for many reasons for instance on a dvd release of the movie, it could be saved and used as a trailer in movie theaters, a internet promotion video, so automatically assuming it is saved for the standalone box set is far fetched.
  19. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    Agreed. The short could just be a preview before the movie, for all we know.

    Zack the Dog Well-Known Member

    Anything is possible, it could be put on hold as well. Very much like the Fraggle Rock book. But no one is automatically assuming or saying a season 4 set is coming but rather just hopefully "if that's the root they take" a good idea!:insatiable:As that's what was originally intended.
