I have seen many a cool collector's movie set, even owned a couple, but I would have to say that this is probably the coolest collectable movie set I ever remember seeing...or, as it were, owning! Of course, I am also a big fan of every movie in this set...I have not ever seen a series of Superhero based movies as cool as Ironman through The Avengers, shy of maybe the Dark Knight movies, but even those take a number 2 slot to several of these films, most especially The Avengers. I do like many a comic book based movie, but the Avengers Assemble series of movies has thus far been my favorite.
I thought the Tessyract was a really cool thing, and the fact that this set comes in a replica of the S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase that it was carried around in is pretty sweet...and to have a replica of the Tessyract actually on the inside of it too is wicked cool! I like how the movie discs come in cases with collectible artwork on them, and the dossiers with all the bonus pictures and content & whatnot is pretty sweet too...all kinds of neat stuff in there. Being the huge fan I am of these movies, and not to mention Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers and came up with the primary design for this set, I was all over this!
The films, like I said, are all awesome! The set comes with many great features and collectibles. I already mentioned the artwork on the movie cases, as well as the briefcase and the Tessyract, and you can tell from the picture that it all lights up, which is super cool. I shut off some lights the evening of the day I got it and gazed upon it...pretty cool. It comes with a bunch of dossiers filled with neat stuff like a replica of a napkin that Tony Stark wrote a message on, information on certain things contained with in the movies and character bios, sketches, etc. You even get your own S.H.I.E.L.D. pass card. There are sneak peaks of Ironman 3 and of Phase 2, which admittedly I have not yet watched, but I will. All in all, super cool!
The only one thing I can see about this set that might be a bummer for some people would be that this set apparently doesn't contain the digital copies of the films...only the regular Blu-Ray copies, as well as the 3D copies of those that were filmed in it (ie Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers). I for one don't have a 3D TV or anything, but one day I or someone I know might, so I certainly don't mind having the 3D copies. For those of you who never bought the original Blu-Rays of each movie with digital copies and were hoping for digital copies, you may want to decide whether or not you want to buy this if the digital copies are a big deal to you. For me, they are not, because between my wife and I, other than my Ps3, we only have 1 laptop...and we both don't really care to fill it up with a bunch of movies anyway. Even so, I would still have jumped at the chance to own this set! But it's all up to you.
That aside though, all in all, I think this is a totally epic collector's set, and I am totally stoked to own it...perfect for any bigtime Marvel fan! It's amazing! My hat off to Marvel and Joss Whedon and whoever else had a hand in creating this set, and to all that worked on the creation of these movies...super great job! I look forward to the next phase of these Marvel movies and other future Marvel Cinematic Universe collection sets.
