Hardcore Tolkien fans should have their wallets at the ready for The Lord of The Rings Middle-Earth Limited Collector’s Edition box set, which comes with 30 discs and a whole lot of exclusive premiums.
This monstrous tribute to the beloved fantasy franchise contains the theatrical and extended edition forms of both trilogies – The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings – all on Bluray, along with a whole lot of extras to justify its hefty $1,493 price tag.
Highlights of the Middle-Earth Collector’s Edition include the following:
- 100-page sketch-style book w/ replica The Red Book of Westmarch, original film sketches, new artwork
- Original reproductions of watercolor paintings by acclaimed conceptual artists Alan Lee & John Howe, (framable, wall-ready)
- All discs housed in “six stunning faux leather books & a collectible Hobbit-style wood shelf”
“The one-of-a-kind wood shelf is crafted from solid wood with the design selected by Peter Jackson,” reads the description.
“For the first time ever, Academy Award-winning director Peter Jacksons epic adventure is available in one spectacular limited collector’s edition box set.”
The Lord of The Rings Middle-Earth Limited Collector’s Edition 30-disc box set can now be purchased via Amazon. But if spending four figures on something like this is just a little out of your budget, there’s a far more reasonably priced version that’ll set you back US$249.99, scheduled to drop October 26th this year. And while it doesn’t have a bespoke shelf, it does offer another disc.
