At the beginning of this month we disclosed
the first information about Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Complete Collection
, a 40-DVD set that contains all seven seasons of the series. As we said at the time, that 40th disc is a newly-made bonus DVD which contains a never-seen Joss Whedon documentary.
Now we have a formal description for this release that Fox has sent around to retailers, plus a small look at the very nice packaging which this release will be contained in:
This beautifully designed, Limited Edition collectible box contains all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, plus a bonus disk containing a brand new documentary featuring creator Joss Whedon. Each box is individually numbered for increased collectibility and value, and will also contain a signed letter from Whedon and an exclusive comprehensive book with episode listings and memorable Buffy quotes.
SRP is $199.98 in the USA, but you can pre-order it from Amazon.com
for $139.99 right now, and lock in your copy. Canadians get a CA$349.98 SRP, but you guys up north can pre-order it from Amazon.ca
for $244.99. November 15th
is the day that this set rises from the grave!
Also, we're working on nailing down the exact street date for the general retail release of Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Spike: Love Is Hell
(which has been a Best Buy exclusive so far). We hope to be back later today or perhaps tomorrow with word from Fox that clears up two conflicting dates we've been given. Stay tuned for that, and if we get a better shot of this Complete Collection
packaging (yeah, it's smaller and blurrier than we would like) then we'll bring it to you pronto as well!
