OK been a fan of LoTR's for ages now and have been looking forward to this release but when i found out what was in the box my heart sank a little. I don't have an issue at all with having each film split over 2 discs, what i do have an issue with is that 6 of the discs i (and so do alot of other people) already have.
I'm talking about the 6 appendices DVD's (yes DVD's NOT Blu Rays) that are the same 6 from the old DVD Extended Edition box sets! Why are these not on Blu Ray! Can't help but think they left them on DVD to
A: cheap out on making new discs
B: bump up the disc count in the box set, coz more is better...right?
In the Alien Anthology Blu Ray they put the 4 DVD special features from the old DVD set on to 1 Blu Ray which was fine as they were not in HD. So why if they are not going to do anything new with the appendices (like have them in HD) don't they just do the same and not try to make out that theres more here than there actualy is.
So out of 15 thats only 6 Blu Rays and the other 9 are DVD's, 6 of which most LoTR fans already own.
