    Yeah, I guess maybe what I said about griping was a little harsh. Sorry folks. :o Anyway, I think I'll still ask for the set.

    Well I'm of two minds. I don't think we should just grin and bear it here, it's very unfair. On the other hand, I may still try and get it. But ONLY if I'm able to give away my old ones to a decent place.

    Ahhem... he said 71 POUNDS, not dollars. It will still be about 120 bucks US... unless Target gets it in for much less.

    Yes, 71 pounds is a lot more than dollars, I know this well from collecting toys from the UK... Of course they would never sell over 90 episodes for that cheap in dollars, that is under a dollar an episode. I think FR is worth more than that :excited:

    I too feel FR is worth more than a few dollars, but in the pricey state of things now (the bills alone cost over $100+), forking over another $100+ (even for a beloved show such as FR) is a little much, IMHO.

    Of course it is, which is why I am not getting the whole series again. I was just saying for those that are $70 is a bit too cheap to hope for:(

    Me? I'd just assume wait until my birthday (this month; in 19 days) or Christmas & sell my first season set for the complete series.

    Exactly, it's more of a holiday toy, lol.
  9. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    Agreed. Plus, I have a library that would love to get its mits on my first season of FR.

    CensoredAlso Well-Known Member

    That's a great idea, I'd recommend that to anyone. I could offer them to my library or local school, there are a lot of ideas so they don't go to waste and less fortunate kids get to see them.
  11. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh Well-Known Member

    Yep. This way, anyone can see the first season if they choose to.

    Amen pal. I'll let Santa Clause do the work for me on this item.

    I've just purchased all 4 seasons in season boxes and the full animated series box set for the price of $105.

    And they are legit copies from OZ!

    Shame Hit never brought them out over in the UK there are just a few discs with random episodes on, shame, I liked the lighthouse version.

    However, Sky have been showing the US versions and I've got into them, so I decided to take the plunge.

    I think I got a really good deal.

    They sell all the box sets individually so you guys that want season 4 or the animated season can easily get a copy. They are even in the same packaging.

    I have a link to convert your dvd players to play multi region if you are interested.

    PM if you want the link. It is all above board, you just programme your dvd player using the remote, like if you where typing a cheat on a wii or computer game.

    I have to say, HIT was very mean to me by doing this :(

    Fraggle Rock was my birthday present for years (and Muppets too, until one was released early, but that's not a BAD thing!)

    But not this year :( Happy Birthday to me!

    Sorry, just a slightly different take on the standard Season 4 gripe :)

    Daaah *hugs Plucky, who happens to be her favorite Tiny Toon*

    You could ask for a worldwide player and the AUS season four for your birthday ;)

    Thanks for the new piccy Danny. I think thats the image used on Henson.com!

    Nice to be able to enlarge it though, it shows that the book style DVD pages are held together as a ring binder?

    Does anyone know what the poster looks like yet? It sounds very interesting on the Henson Podcast!

    If anyone in the UK finds a cheaper site than DVDConcept.com please post it.

    i just thought of another aspect that would get me to invest into the series over top of having already owned the other sets...while it is small and i know isn't included, the original openings for the terrible tunnel and the finger of light. now would that warrant a total rebuy of the set and justify getting duplicates of 72 episodes? probably not. lol. but it would be a nice feature and have it done right

    Redsonga Well-Known Member

    I really don't think they are doing anything to change the way the episodes are already on DVD. They seem to be doing this whole series set without any of the paper extras to get as much money as they can off the fact that some collectors have to have everything no matter what:smirk:. So I really don't think they are going to go the extra mile and redo something as major as which copies of the episodes they use:sympathy:

    Redsonga is right - the first fifteen discs will almost certainly be straight reissues. Probably right down to the menus and graphics.

    However, the new featurette about the evolution of the theme song may contain those sequences, either in full or abbreviated. That's something to hope for.
