And this one contains the 4k Disc and a 60 page illustrated book.
Prices went down significantly on ebay saw one for 60$, gotta love these 4K editions...next up 8K
Well, yeah, probably went down from the crazy levels, but I meant it's still a great edition for the fans. I missed it and might buy it now, that you're saying those came down to acceptable levels.
But I don't think there will be an 8K format, they're struggling to justify 4K, adding distorted colors to it to make it look... different.

I was joking about the 8K :LOL:
I'm sure more collectors will be posting their old variant up for sale.
60$ or best offer on ebay, they might even take 40$ for it
