So it's releasing two months after the US release, but it'll cost me a lot less. Yeah, I think I can wait that long.

A few questions regarding this set (because I'm contemplating picking this up over the more expensive US release) :
  • Is it region-free?
  • Is the content on the discs the same as the US release?
  • Does it also contain the Cylon figurine
  • Is this the final box layout or a temporary one?
Thanks in advance for anyone who would be able to answer this.

Its a universal release so yes it will be region free. As for the rest still awaiting details. Either way I am getting the UK version and possibly the price might drop a little bit more before getting released. Amazon and play have done it on quite a few of their blu-rays.

I'm in for the UK set as long as they used the same BD masters from the US edition to ensure greater content than on the UK DVDs. Price and packaging are also nice - great news for us UK Region-B buyers.

Based on this image, no.


And unless the packaging is not final, it seems the Blu ray set has some different features than the dvd set. The rating for the dvd set is 15 whereas the blu is 18.

Different rating definitely suggests different materials - well spotted Psicon. As you say, depends on the accuracy of the packaging image. Oh well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for the content, but even on price it's got the US set beat - the tin looks potentially sturdier, and I'm really not bothered by the lack of a figurine.

Default 18 certificate

For the sake of £35 difference (approx) between the US and UK set, I don't think I can wait 2 months for the UK one. I'm just a bit concerned that the UK version is an 18 certificate, do people think that both sets will be the same. Would universal release 2 different sets for different regions?

The only reason to release two different sets would be to avoid paying more money to the BBFC to certify content not already released in the UK. In the case of BSG, this could be quite costly because of the number of commentaries not included on the first set or two, as well as some featurettes. However, Universal will have weighed that against the cost of having to make their own master over here - I suspect using the US master and paying the extra to the BBFC is almost certainly less, and they will have opted for it, meaning we will get the same extras here as in the US.

It would also allow their marketing department to describe those extras as "Blu-ray" exclusives.

If I see/hear anything in the industry press, I'll post it here, but there's not been anything so far other than the actual announcements of the release.

Plus, the difference will be £35 PLUS Customs and Post Office additional charges - it could end up being as much as £50 total difference between the two.

And yes, I know not everyone gets stung for the extra charges every time, but over the last year I've paid them on every single item that is larger than a single DVD or Blu - that's £14-16 every single time. Oh well.

It does look like a fridge or mini-safe, doesn't it? I suspect it's from MetalPak, as the design looks remarkably like the tin they did for Manga Entertainment's Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex 2nd Gig complete series. They make good, solid tins - I've only ever seen maybe one in every couple of hundred suffer damage, and then only due to poor handling or packing in shipping.

Good luck getting it through customs. With a package that size and that expensive you're pretty much guaranteed VAT and extra charges. In the end the difference will likely be over £60.

I have a feeling the webisodes are present in the BD..

That's why the 18 rating..

I wonder if the UK release will have the UK music for Season One. If it does, and the US release doesn't (assuming everything else is the same), I'll go with the UK version.

Given Heroes UK releases, I think its more likely the UK will get the exact same discs as the US release. Who knows though. Just don't anyone be disappointed if we do.

And I'm sure we can whistle in the wind for an official press release from Universal Playback.
