Rats. What is it with using thicker cases over there?

I prefer a tight box...

Looking at the two sets I prefer the slip box of the new set, that looks very nice but the individual cover artwork on the new release is bloody awful

I was interested in importing the Spider-Man trilogy to Australia as the UK release got superior packaging but I had heard a rumour that the Spider-Man 2 disc accidently had the headbutt scene removed although that cut had since been waived by the BBFC.

So has then headbutt been removed or is this indeed just a rumour?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I'm pretty sure it's the old cut 'cut' of Spider-Man 2 on the disc, however Spider-Man 2.1 is uncut as it has slightly different editing in that scene.

Update: I think it's in the original trilogy set if that helps any but you'll lose out on the new special features!

Thanks for that. I already have the original trilogy release but was hoping to sell it off if the UK release was uncut.

Looks like I might have to hang onto it afterall.........

I can see it's £7.99 with Amazon at the moment, out of curiosity what's postage and packaging to Australia?

I think it's £3.50 flat rate and £1.50 for each additional item, or something very similar.

I miss the free postage option that Amazon offered us for a while.

That's about the same as US to UK orders. That postage always kills enthusiasm great offers!
