not a deal; same set can be had from Amazon-UK for roughly $33 shipped (to USA):

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B003AQBYUG/ref=ox_ya_os_product

region-free, so it WILL play in your American-purchased blu-ray player & PS3

They are not identical though, the US packaging is in a book. It's way cooler.

so $10 more for a book? um, no thx.

@gochr1s: If I wanted the UK versions of DVDs, I'd move to the UK.

they're the SAME discs sold in the US; i have the set (purchased from Amazon-UK) and they work LOVELY on both my blu-ray players (PS3 included). moreover, the UK-packaged set comes in a normal plastic case (6-discs total), which greatly lessen the chance of discs getting scratched...unlike sets that are book-style packaged (like my America's Game set, The Shawshank Redemption, The Exorcist, etc.).

@gochr1s: but what if we don't speak UK??

@gochr1s: Agreed, I have the UK version and love it

I bought the UK bluray a couple of weeks ago. Cost me about $26, works great in my bluray player, and I can discern no difference between this and the US version.
A book would be cool. I guess.

looked at this deal strictly to make sure that someone had already posted about the UK version...glad to see that's been done...not sure why there's bickering going on about it though...it's a great set.

Having lived on the Nostromo for the better part of my childhood, I can tell you they did a wonderful job on this documentary.

Funny this should come up right now... I just got mine in the mail 2 hours ago that I ordered from UK amazon for the equivalent of 18.03 USD!

-but I did just look at the pics of the book package and it's SUPER AWESOME. and I'm a little jealous. and there's only 4 discs in the set i got. I'm a lot jealous. buyer's remorse.

my UK Aliens(es) set has 6 discs: the 4 movies, and 2 "making of" documentaries. not to be a smartass, but double-check your plastic case: the last 2 discs may be hidden behind the "Resurrection" blu-ray.

@gochr1s: I feel dumb... I looked at the amazon listing from that woot post a couple days ago, and saw that the UK "Alien Anthology" I ordered contains just the 4 movies on blu-ray. Silly me, I thought I was getting an amazing deal, when I really only got a decent deal. Eh, now I have the movies...

again, are u 100% sure?? check the case, seriously; the "Alien Resurrection" disc holder snaps into the back cover of the blu-ray case very tightly; lift that sumbish up & make sure u don't have the other two "making of" discs behind there.

nm, i see the one u bought now; didn't realize there were 2 diff versions of the collection...seems mighty strange to have 2 on the Euro market, plus the US "book" version.
