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 Amazon.fr HERE
