Usually $79, according to camelcamelcamel.com.

Cheapest I saw on ebay today is $65.

Cheapest closed auctions on ebay that I saw was $50+.

So I guess $43 is a pretty good deal. It has been that cheap before, but not as often as it has been $79.

The set comes with 15 discs.

But with all the LotR products in our hobby, it's pretty clear there will be a ton of people interested in these movies(and generally hot deals). I'll be buying them!

Oh no! Now I'll have to waste upwards of 20 seconds reading subject titles and clicking mark as read when I'm not interested! angry

Thank you op. I cannot decide if I want this set or the individual movie sets. There are some used/new prices not fulfilled by Amazon at below $15. Does anyone know how good Amazon is about products that are not fulfilled by them? (Yea, I kind of preferred individual packaging then a box set like this).

Thanks for the tip. I was just looking at this set at the $100.00 mark. You saved me some cash better spent on boardgames...:)

To the OP, this is most certainly a hot deal I'm interested in. Way more applicable to me than ANY of the numerous iOS "Hot Deals" that are posted every day.

I bought this set the day it came out, but I've already contacted a dozen friends who have snatched this up today. Thanks!

Gamers all eat, too. Should we post ads for MacDonalds and Safeway? This is BoardGameGeek.

I'd say equally inapplicable. Post about iOS deals on VGG, and movie deals on a movie site (I'm sure there are lots of them).

Im usually on the opposite side of Sphere on these issues, but i think i agree with him here. I dont mind the ios deals, especially if theyre based on board games, but the LOTR movies are a bit of a stretch.

Then again, im not sure if i care enough to fight it either.

But it's good background ambiance for when you play your War of the Ring Collector's Edition

I agree that it probably shouldn't be here, and it doesn't even apply to me personally, because I already own these Blu-Rays, but I am glad I saw it.

Moved to Chit Chat.

Hot deals is a folder in General Gaming, so it should only be gaming related items that are posted. This is a cool deal though so lets move it to Chit-Chat so folks can still see it but it's not in the wrong place.

As it's a compromise I suspect no-one will be happy.

I have this... buy it... you will not regret it, if you are a fan.

Set aside a weekend, stock up on food and beverages. Watch the whole thing with surround sound...You will not regret that either.

I have seen Hot Deals posted earlier for Joss Whedon dvds, bookcases, coffee tables, titanium rings, camera cases, art supply storage boxes, shadow boxes, coupon codes, & phone/tablet apps, among others. Most folks seem to be happy to find out about them, even though most of what I listed would be stretched to fit any sort of "gaming related" definition.

I was not trying to offend anyone, though I succeeded in that, or at least in slightly annoying/irritating some. There have been many Gold Box Deals (for instance) that I could not see any connection to games, but I thought DVDs that so many games were based directly on would qualify as "related." But, I guess that could be easily crammed in along with novels, comics, etc, so I see the error there.

I think I can see the arguments for both sides. The only solution I suppose, would be Hot Deals are for games only. Not things to store games, nor play games on, nor items that can be modified to store games or use in games. But then, where's the fun in that?

Oh well. At least some appreciated the link.
I will try to be more selective next time.

No worries I appreciated the thought.

On a daily basis non-gaming items get posted so you will have seen some- however, these threads are likely to get moved or deleted - particularly if it they are brought to the admins attention.
