Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
It is a nice sum of money.. but I can't agree that it's not worth it. It's all the seasons, I imagine Razor is included - hopefully the extended version. That said, I own it all on DVDs so I'll probably wait before I buy it, the price is bound to go down with time. Actually having the BluRay player on anything but the laptop would also help :)

The price for a single season in that package is under 30£, which really isn't that much.

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
The price is well set... it is close to the highest amount of money I am willing to pay for the full set. I was actually waiting for this. I will buy this pack. :D

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
What I can't begin to fathom is why they still haven't released a single, complete box set for series 4.

Selling it in two halves only made sense while they took that ridiculous break in the middle.

Right now on Play:

-To buy the last 10 episodes for series 4: £24.99

-To buy a box set consisting of every single episode bar the last 10: £32.99

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
I'll probably buy it when 'ill have a full hd tv and a bluray player at home, anyway i'm quite disapointed by the lack of imagination for the box design.
I 'd imagined something like a replica of cylon's head or a battlestar box shaped.

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
Such box design would only have made the already considerable price much higher.

Such box design would only have made the already considerable price much higher.

And would be impractical.

Hey, I think I might just buy it to clear my guilty conscience for downloading every episode because some commercial broadcaster in NL still holds the broadcasting rights (which means that no dvd-boxes can be published here without their permission because less people will watch BSG if they already have the episodes), but isn't doeing anything with it now.

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
I don't like custom boxes, tbh. I almost bought "The Dark Knight" recently, but gave up because it had a custom batman-mask box. Not only does it make the price higher, it doesn't fit my shelf with the other DVDs. I found it twice as cheap a bit later in a regular box which I can keep on my shelf without any problems.
If it's a movie or a series, just give me a regular easy to handle and store box. I can buy model kits separately :)

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
I bought it. It's worth it to see Pegasus and the Resurrection ship in HD. Also the menu's look much better on the discs.

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
I'm surprised none of our artists are buying it in droves for the super HD references.

Then again, I'm sure a lot of our artists are big fans of "digital distribution." :D

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
Actually most of the artists have mentioned buying the Blu-Ray versions already on IRC. It's just a matter of finding the cash. :)

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
Yeah, the US version has a much more pimped out box. Not that I care much for that stuff.

Re: Galactica coming to Blu-ray
The model of the centurion is somewhat crappy. but i love it anyways. I could also catch all the random space ship cameo's in blue ray. there is no question serenity is in it and it does actually look like the enterprise is in it and it's not just a lighting glitch

The GDI Kodiak was also in the mini, and several more episodes throughout the series.
Or something.
