Gorgeous Harry Potter Blu-Ray Prestige Edition now available for Pre-order

If you're a Harry Potter fan AND owner of a Blu-Ray disc Player, then this upcoming Harry Potter Blue-Ray Prestige Edition to be released November 25th is for you!

As you can see on the pictures, this "Prestige Edition" is a beautiful resin reproduction of Hogwarts Castle and include Blu-Ray discs of Harry Potter movies 1 to 6 with room to put the no 7 part 1 and 2 discs when available in the future.

I am not a huge Harry Potter fan but i have to admit that this Prestige Edition with Hogwarts Castle model looks fantastic. Dimensions of the item as announced by Amazon are 50 x 40 x 40 cm, but, looking at the picture, i think it'll be probably closer to 40 x 30 x 30 cm. Weight: 6kgs (12 pounds).

However, there is just a little problem: this Prestige Edition is available only (for now) on the french Amazon web site. And price is 185 euros - 265 U.S $! And this does not include shipping and custom taxes if you live in the U.S.
Also, the Blu-Ray dvds will be "zone 2" dvds, which mean that if you live in Europe your Blu-Ray Player will be able to play the discs, but not necessarily if you have a U.S Blu-Ray player. Anyway, if some of you are interested to pre-order it, just go on HERE

Poudlard is the French translation of Hogwarts. Not a direct translation, but what is used in the books and films. Just in case anyone is confused with what Alain is writing about.

Thanks for your comment! I've changed "Poudlard" for "Hogwarts", so it's the right "english" name now.

This edition is superb, and it is not true that the movies are in Zone 2 or B, it is a Zone 0 meaning it's multizone, my version came from Germany and I can play the movies on my Blu Ray DVD player in NTSC ( USA and Canada)
