Actually, when you put the 3D version in your cart, there is a WBshop Anniversary: $5 Off $25, so it does come out to $21.99. You'll probably get charged tax though. My total was $23.42

Thanks! Got the 3D version for $21.99 + tax

Good deal, but I'll rent it on Amazon and pick up the extended edition (already announced by WB) later this year.

It's a shame they're releasing this now instead of the already completed extended edition.

I am not making this mistake again, when the first LOTR came out I bought all the theatrical and all the extended. This time I am waiting for the extended.

I think the tax situation may depend upon your state. I live in Idaho. They did not tax me.

If you want a really good extended version... read the book!

vote-for2vote-against

Yep, too true. I read the book back in the middle '60's, and wrote my senior paper on The Lord of the Rings. I've loved the whole story ever since. Nothing wrong with seeing more New Zealand scenery, though, is there?

@archiestone: I feel like you're either joking or didn't actually see the movie.. because the movie actually contains a lot more content than the book does. I mean not only did they add things from the Lord of the Rings appendices and other sources, they also stretched out a lot of scenes that were short or insignificant and didn't really leave anything notable out. In reality, it would probably take longer to watch all three of the Hobbit movies than it would to read the entire 300 page book.

@penpenshogun: I feel like since the third movie isn't going to be released for over a year and a half, it might be a bit of time before they do an extended edition. That's just my guess though.

Be careful, the woot link "I Want One" took me to the non-3D version. I followed the link someone else posted above to the actual 3D version of the movie. After I put it in my cart and then went to my cart, it did reflect the WBshop Anniversary: $5 Off $25 discount and did come out to $21.99.

Three long movies out of this one book already is "extended". I loved the LotR movies (and the extended versions), but this movie got tiresome to watch for me.

vote-for2vote-against

extended or not, i'm waiting till they release the full hobbit trilogy and it shows up on woot for $40 or less

vote-for2vote-against

then again, a friend wants this for his birthday, so I might as well save $6 compared to amazon's price...

I'm still waiting for the Lord of the Rings Super Extended Directors Cut in Lenticular steel case packaging that says, "My Precious" when you open it and lift out the solid gold copy of the Ring...

...and the discs are gold plated as well and there is a coupon for a commemorative sword by mail that is hand delivered by UPS men dressed as Orcs.

@penpenshogun: Good point! You just saved me some money! Thanks!

@lucasatakros: I'd probably buy that one too. It'll probably have a special behind the scenes view of Peter Jackson's breakfast for every day of the filming.

vote-for2vote-against

Peter Jackson released extended editions of the Lord of the Rings movies to please viewers, but the theatrical releases were his preferred, definitive director's cuts (source: http://www.ign.com/articles/2003/12/08/interview-peter-jackson-2?page=4). I don't know that the same necessarily applies to The Hobbit, but given how much additional material was added to pad out the running time, and how bloated An Unexpected Journey already is, I couldn't be less interested in watching any kind of extended version.

Just ordered, $23.53 after taxes. This beats Walmart's price for the same product @ $29.96 + tax.

Good find!

vote-for2vote-against

@fcamizzi: I "preordered" it at walmart a few days ago for $26 or $27 and it came with a cool 3D card of Gandalf, the blu ray and DVD copy, and a digital copy that I received today actually. They're apparently going to ship it to me on the 19th along with a 64 page book of some sort. Is that the one you got? I didn't even know they were selling other types in a preorder.

@cyberpenguin: gotta feed the monkey, they want everyone to buy theatrical and then get the extended as well!

vote-for1vote-against

Do all you folks really have a 3D TV? O_o

vote-for1vote-against

Does anyone else worry that shipping will take weeks?

I have never ordered from here without it taking WAY too long.

vote-for1vote-against

I don't have a 3D TV. I wanted the ultraviolet and DVD copies. But there is no way to tell what will happen down the road. It is too good a deal to pass up.

@dslocum: I don't have one yet, but I'm confident I will one day. I used the same tactic when it was apparent that Blu Ray would be the new default format. Movies that were worth buying were purchased in DvD+BluRay before I had a BluRay player. Now I'm glad I did that.

@lucasatakros: Sorry Lucas, but there is only the One copy, and I have it stashed away in my lair.

vote-for1vote-against

Curious why mine had not shipped yet, I called. Nice CS girl, said it was listed as backordered. Funny, though, its listed on the website, for less then our preorder deal price (by $0.40) and says ships in 1 day. I dont think I will order from WB shop again.

@starbob: I was comparing it to the 3D disc version at Walmart. I didn't see the extras. I probably would have gotten it from there. Plus, I don't expect to be seeing this anytime soon. I got an email saying that they would not charge my card until the order was fulfilled and they haven't yet, it's still just a pending charge. And I haven't gotten any shipment notification or anything like that.

@fcamizzi: Ah I don't have any of the necessary devices to require 3D blu rays. Sucks it hasn't shipped though, I got mine from Walmart yesterday. The book is sort of built into the case but it sems pretty well made. The whole thing feels like a hardback book except it has discs in it.
