Yes, I just didn't have it with me when I took the pic. I have the set at work and the movie is at home. Plan to watch them in order, but not sure of the frequency. Perhaps one or two a week, while watching other stuff in between.

How they look in the box (about the same as before, but maybe a little more uniform? (Hulk sleeve is missing as that's at home). Still plenty of room and actually a couple more would fit.


Only used them for the 23 UHD discs (not the bonus disc as that doesn't have extra thickness on the spine edge.
Much nicer, ordered me some. Thanks.

For anyone who wants the Australian set but lives outside the country, I figured out a work-around since JB Hi-Fi doesn't appear to be shipping it internationally any longer.
You can use the freight forwarder AUSFF (ausff.com.au). They have a $5 AUD sign-up fee, but currently have a promo code at sign-up that makes it free.
They'll provide an AU shipping address. Once they receive it, they'll notify you about freight options for shipping. I ran an estimate and it's comparable to what JB Hi-Fi was going to charge to ship to the US.

Hope that helps anyone else who missed out on the US set.

Great to see/hear that my idea with disk hubs worked out great!
My set comes in on Thursday along with a 100-pack of clear hubs.

Will two hubs on each, barring the bonus disk sleeve still allow all the sets to fit on the box?

I don't think so. The ones I got are just over 1/8" thick, which is about the max that you can expand it without having it bulge out. I can live with leaving the BD discs in the cardboard sleeves.

I think that looks really clean Bruce. I ordered a set for mine also. I never plan to sell the set either but you know as thin and as tight as those cardboard sleeves are these added hubs almost make it look like they came that way.
Nice job ��

So I’m going to have to do some serious soul searching to determine whether or not this is something I want to do even though it looks great and seems like it provides much more protection than the right squeeze of the sleeves do.
I am right there with you. This looks great, but I hate the idea of permanently changing the set.

The other factor is resale. Now sure, Ill likely keep this until 8K or w/e (if) becomes a thing. Unless Disney does do another/better complete set. More extras, more discs, etc. Then I'd consider selling it and upgrading.

Now, the likelihood of either of those happening any time soon or if ever probably isn't very good. But, just in case... do I really want to make that change?

Im at least leaning towards paper sleeves in the middle just for the 4K discs in the mean time.

Wouldn’t they be prone to scratches when sliding in/out of paper/plastic sleeves? The only way I could see it not doing so would be if you had the outsides pushed in so that it made a diamond-esque shape, so one could pull out/push in the discs without touching the material. Even so, it seems like it would be super-prone to dust, right?

With the talk of ordering from other countires I have a question. I'm from Canada and bought this US exclusive box set by shipping it to someone else home.

I just tried to redeem 1/23 digital codes but it says it can only be redeemed in the US. Do i just have to be on a us internet connection to do it or is there a work around?

Is anyone interested in buying just the digital codes? If so, let me know, as I'm definitely interested in selling!

Related - I'm new to this forum but it looks like the way to properly post something for sale is to add it to your "Want to Sell" collection via that movie's digital code page. However, the Infinity Saga box set doesn't have a digital code page. Any advice on how best to post the codes for sale here? Would prefer to not have to sell each code individually.
