If you are rich, or a completist you may be interested in the latest Lord of the Rings offering.
You can even get it tomorrow.

Wow, I've rarely seen such an effective consumer backlash against rip-off merch in the customer reviews than for this item.

Out of 265 reviews at the moment, 236 are one-star reviews and many of the apparent "three-star", "four-star" and "five-star" reviews are actually snarky (and some very funny) one-star reviews in disguise.

Tee hee! Some of them are very funny - good on the public :thumbl: at $499 for the set they really are extracting the urine

I posted the link to a mate of mine who would be quicker to buy blu rays than food. He said it's almost half what the original price was :shock: :shock: :roll:
[regarding Alan Rickman] He had Tim Curry's ability to save the day by putting literally all the scenery in his mouth and gnawing on it like a deranged woodchuck.

Perhaps that tells you how fast it's sticking to the shelves...

The price for 6 films is rdiiculous. Now, if it was Hogfather, Colour on Magic and Going Postal...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
