Blind Buy - 'cause no-one would know unless they tested the code/s - and who's gonna give them out for "testing"? Really, since the "expiration date" usually means nothing, only someone who just bought the set - and had it sent to them, and just used the code - would know. Good luck with that.

For reference, this is the set I'm referring to:

Exactly, the costs of doing such would almost be tantamount to remaking the movies - never going to happen.

Never's a long time. After sixteen years, Fox let Lucas redo a ton of effects in the STAR WARS trilogy, so I'd say "unlikely to happen anytime soon" would be a more realistic statement.

Those were new and different effects. They could re-sell the picture as a new experience. This would be the same effects exactly, just at a higher resolution. Most people thought that the picture they saw on giant movie screens was high-enough resolution.

No comparison at all.

The amount of CG effects in the original Star Wars SEs are a miniscule drop in the bucket if that compared to all of the CG that was done in the Lord of the Rings. It would be a remarkably huge overhaul if were are talking redoing ALL of the CG in LOTR for 4K. As I said, they would basically be remaking the movies. That is not going to happen. They are not going to be spending tens and tens of millions of dollars (or maybe even more) to do so. The costs would be extraordinary and not worth it in any business sense to attempt to sell to the population other than the 1% of us who care about these things.

Maybe fix up a few things here and there like what was done in Star Wars? Sure, maybe. But that is not the context to which I was referring.

There's also the question of why they would do such a thing. 1080p is likely going to be "good enough" for consumers for our lifetimes. Even if 4k becomes the new standard I would guess like 80% of older movies will just get 4k upscales and consumers will barely notice or care.

I guess if they really want to remaster LotR in 4k they could upscale most effects and redo some really close shots, but I don't see them wanting to go through even that expense when 95% of consumers will be just fine streaming a 4k upscale of the 2k masters.
