The Amazon U.S. listing is $182.99 and appears to only be a 5 discs edition. No Blu-rays. Seems to be a Paramount thing in the U.S. with not including Blu-rays. The recent Indiana Jones 4 movie set didn't have the Blu-rays either. Neither did the recent Scream 1 steelbook.

I’m all for not including blu rays of movies. I’m even OK with just putting all the extras on a 4K disks (even if the content isn’t 4K), but I don’t get why the USA costs more than the UK release, which presumably costs more to produce.

The previous extras are on Blu-ray disc that is why 4K UHD release has a Blu-ray disc

There are 2 bonus discs in 4K UHD release
New extras on 4K UHD disc and previous extras on Blu-ray

Went with the standard 4k set from Zavvi for 74.99. Been a while since I seen these and never seen the Coda cut of part 3 but very much looking forward to a UHD rewatch

I bought this on DVD and a couple of times on Blu-ray, but have not ever seen a single one of the movies in their entirety (cannot go through life and not see scenes out of it here and there). Maybe after buying it on UHD I'll finally watch it... or maybe another Resident Evil sequel comes out, and I forget. :wacky:

USA collector's edition release is 4 UHD discs and 1 Blu-ray (5 Discs)
Films on 3x 4K UHD and 2 bonus discs
The bonus discs are (1x 4K UHD and 1x Blu-ray)

UK collector's edition is 4 UHD discs and 5 Blu-ray (9 Discs)
3 Films on 3x 4K UHD and 3x Blu-ray and 3 bonus discs
The bonus discs are (1x 4K UHD and 2x Blu-ray)
Wait, so there's an extra extras BD in the UK edition? Why, what's on it? If it's just a previously released bonus disc, then, to my knowledge, all trilogy releases on BD in all countries had 1 extras disc.

Yes, but the UK release has 3 bomis disks, while the US one has 2: the 1 4K and 1 Blu. I’m not sure what the difference between the 2nd black Blu Ray disk and the Blu Blu Ray disk is (but sure looks like black disk on the right is also Blu Ray)

I know that, which is what I wrote in the message you're kindly responding to...

So here, in this bit, we come to the point of it all. It's either wrong information, or the studio is stupid, putting in two exact same discs.
They could be in some sort of cheap plastic packaging, intended for separate sale, and that could explain this.

UK collector's deluxe edition includes 4K UHD trilogy and Blu-ray trilogy in same box set

UHD trilogy is 5 Discs (4 UHD discs and 1 Blu-ray)

Disc 4 UHD bonus disc with extras that are exclusive to 4K UHD release
Disc 5 Blu-ray bonus extras disc with legacy extras
UHD trilogy Disc 4 and Disc 5 (black discs)

Blu-ray trilogy is 4 Blu-ray Discs
Disc 4 is Blu-ray legacy extras disc
Blu-ray trilogy all disc are Blue colour

UK Collector's Deluxe Edition Total 9 Discs

Both UHD and Blu-ray trilogy editions has legacy extras on Blu-ray Disc

Previous blu-ray trilogy box sets had extras disc (That is why those previous trilogy releases was also 4 Blu-ray discs)

Legacy extras bonus disc
UHD trilogy Disc 5 Blu-ray (black disc)
Blu-ray trilogy Disc 4 (blue disc)

It possible Blu-ray Trilogy blu-ray extras disc might differ than the previous extras disc but that won't be known for sure until someone gets delivery and compares the discs
It might end been the previous extras disc that was in previous trilogy releases

Amazon UK and HMV
Price might drop at various stages before release date
They will price match each other

It will though depend on print run of deluxe box set in UK
If it's selling well and results little stock left price drop might not happen

Most of the discs made will be used for standard 4K release that edition will likely see decent price drops before or after release date
