Today's The Day To Snap Up The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Extended Editions

For one day only, Amazon are offering the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu-ray for just $43.49, down from $119.98. I don’t recall the US release ever being anything like this cheap before. For comparison, the UK set is currently priced at £38.99.

All fifteen discs are all region free, I should note, and the packaging is pretty groovy with actual cases inside, the better to store that gargantuan number of discs nicely. It’s not a huge box either, and fits on my main Blu-ray shelf with ‘normal’ discs just right.

I’ll be embarking on a marathon of these soon, I think, the better to get revved up for The Hobbit. Just me, fifteen discs, a giant bottle of soda, some lembas bread honey cake.
