    The Four-Disc Collector's Edition includes everything from the 2-Disc Special Edition plus three additional versions of the film (1982 Theatrical Version, 1982 International Version, 1992 Directors Cut), as well as an “Enhancement Archive” bonus disc of enhanced content.

    Lastly there will be the five-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition. This will include everything above, along with the ultra-rare, near-legendary Workprint version of the film, newly remastered. A commentary by Paul M. Sammon, author of Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner will also be included, along with an All Our Variant Futures: From Workprint to Final Cut featurette. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be presented in a unique 5-disc digi-package with handle which is a stylish version of Rick Deckard's own briefcase, in addition each briefcase will be individually numbered and in limited supply. Included is a lenticular motion film clip from the original feature, miniature origami unicorn figurine, miniature replica spinner car, some collector's photographs as well as a signed personal letter from Sir Ridley Scott.

    That's preeeetty.
    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ridley Scott is the man. He's the first director, in my opinion, to truly embrace the DVD format and deliver the goods with supplementary material every time. Even the double-dip DVD versions of his films never duplicate the same features, making them great companion pieces to own along with the previous DVD version.

    One thing that kinda sucks about this release is that the 5-disc edition is available in a disc only format for HD DVD and Blu-Ray for cheap (~$30) but if you want it in regular old DVD, you gotta get the briefcase and stuff and pay about double.

    I want the 5-disc, but I'm not yet ready to jump to an HD format, and I don't need the briefcase and other stuff -- just the discs. Bastidges.

    I will be getting this but not the standard DVD set.
    I have both Blu-ray and HD-DVD.
    Not sure what format I should get.
    Either way, it will be the one in the case.

    Saw the original movie, wasn't really a fan. Not into the fake, hi-tech, bad special effects type futuristic movies.

    I have the 4-Disc, paid $22.99 on Amazon; so money is not too much at all. So far the extras I watched are great, but 4 different versions of the movie is just tough to watch. I have only watched the original cut so far. :wacko:

    All great movies should get this type respect. Not only is this a great set, it is priced accordingly for a 5 disc set. IMO
