    Here's the first(?) review.

    ...and the review says: "The packaging claims Part Two has an aspect ratio of 2:35.1 but this is a misprint, and (like all the other films) it is displayed in the correct 1:85.1 aspect ratio."

    I just received notice from Exploited that my Sphere Set shipped today. Hope it gets here before Monday, I've been holding off watching the P series in anticipation of this release.

    Yeah, exploited seems to have it in stock, NOW. That's cool. Maybe I should cancel my Amazon order.

    I'm waiting for my Amazon order. if I ordered through Xploited it would cost me 125.00 and it only cost me 87.00 through Amazon. in case you were wondering, I ordered 2.

    on the other hand, you can get it through CD-WOW for 38.00 with a 2.00 off discount. I have been thinking about changing my order to here but I think I'm just going to stick with my Amazon order since it was placed almost 2 months ago.

    Well, I stuck with my Amazon order and it apparently shipped today. So, that's pretty cool.

    Got mine in last night, and spent the evening watching the bonus materials disc. The 95 mintute doc. is pretty sweet. Gonna watch the films today.

    I wonder if those who ordered from Amazon UK will get the lower price since it has changed recently? the new price is 82.72 shipped but when I ordered it was 86.49(I ordered 2).

    Thanks for the link. I didn't realize there was a US site, too.

    The top half of the sphere comes off, and there's a piece of black, spongy foam, with slits in the foam to hold the discs. None of my discs were scratched, so I don't foresee any issues such as damaged discs. However, my discs came out of it upon unwrapping, and are now in separate cases.

    EDIT- found a pic Mortis:

    I'm going to order two spheres (one for me and one for a friend). I picked up a Philips DVP642 last night.

    BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Man, it's been a long time since I've been this excited about a box set coming out. I finally got my spheres today. I missed DHL yesterday. I signed the slip and left a note for him to leave the box in my Jeep. Luckily it all worked out well and the box was in there when I got home. Very cool. I took pictures of the opening of the box so you can all share in my excitement!!!
