      And I’ll just be sitting here waiting for the extended versions again (hopefully with cast commentary and an easter egg this time)

      Waiting for extended

      • Daughter of Eve

        Me too. Love the extended versions. For the LotR series, my brother and I bought both the extended and the theatrical versions and we’re doing the same for this. Overall, we felt that both are worth having.

        Anybody know about when the extended will be out?

    • Ultron

      Not exactly sure why you would buy the combo pack before the third movie comes out. It’s very expensive for just 2 movies. The statues are pretty cool but not quite enough.

        I wouldn’t worry too much. Most retailers never sell DVDs by their list price. The suggested retail price will probably be $22 for the Blu-Ray, $25 for the 3D version, and $18 for the DVD.

      Good to know when it’s available as a torrent. Bye. *arr*
