Well, even though that price seems expensive, it's actually cheaper than buying the DVD sets individually. Sure, you don't get the tins, but you get all but one of the sets. It's worth it, if you can actually afford it.
If I didn't already have them all I'd be jumping at this set, money permitting. It's an amazing collection of Disney history. $500 is less than I've invested by buying these all when released. Of course, $500 at one pop is tougher to do than spreading the $ out over many years.
Hopefully this set will make some people very happy!
A lot of people are having problems with their orders being canceled because they live outside the US - I've slipped through the cracks somehow... I think it's because I placed it so early and phoned to confirm to be sure. I really want this set as I wasn't as savvy to US DVD when the first waves came out and I only really learnt about them by Wave 4 and by that time the set I wanted most, Goofy, had been long gone.
wow, i would love this. anyone know if i can join D23 from the UK? they haven't launched it over here.
While you can join D23 from the UK, Disney Store doesn't ship Region 1 DVDs outside of the US and Canada, so unfortunately you won't be able to buy this Treasures DVD set.
It really is a good deal for someone who doesn't own any of them. If you do the math, it's less than $20 per set. I've been collecting since the beginning, so this doesn't have much appeal to me, but it's nice that they did this for Disney fans. It's better than paying more than $100 for some of the early sets on eBay.
I have about 10 of the tins, but to complete my collection would cost more than $500. I jumped at the D23 offer immediately after the Expo and cannot wait for it to arrive. I spoke with a guy on the phone from DisneyStore.com, and he said he thought they would be shipped earlier than stated. Has anyone else heard this?
This is stupid. Disney should instead release exclusive treasures sets for D23 members instead of putting the entire set avaliable at a price that is more than most members are willing to spend.
I'm also assuming that most of the individuals who are D23 members are the same people that purchase Walt Disney Treasures as soon as they come out. So why target a makret in a way that doesn't add value to your company?
I've been really dissapointed witht the lack of creativity in the D23 boutique-they can do allot better.
