Someone posted this on the facebook-fanpage:
"Just had a telephone conversation with a customer service rep at WB Records who quoted me a ship date of 4/5/11 for the Collector's Edition. God I hope that is legit. It's so close I can almost taste it."

Well then for your sake I hope there'll also be a promo video "How to Eat the Elfman/Burton Box Set". (I mean they háve to be running out of promo video topics!)

April 5th? Oh god my poor bank account! I'm already getting Taxi Driver and A.I. on Blu that day. Paycheck tomorrow though, that'll ease the pain :lol:

It's hard to read these dates sometimes. I thought it was 4th of May. :P

I don't remember ever reading anything saying the USB would have more music than the discs. Do you have a link?

Are you sure you're not thinking of the 17th disc mailed to people who pre-ordered around X-Mas?

He's right, there's more music exclusive to the USB.

And here I thought it would keep getting pushed back until June. ;)



Well to all those who ordered, I hope you enjoy it.




Just don't get upset when more scores from that set start getting individual releases. ;)

No kidding, I wouldn't be surprised if LLL releases complete or nearly complete versions of some of those scores.

I mean they all ready have for Batman and Batman Returns but still...

I'm still unboxing everything lol, and emailing myself the pictures.

Only disappointment so far is that there's no instruction as to how to set up the zoetrope. When you take the lid off the music starts playing, and inside is a roll of all the images that are supposed to spin around. I haven't read Elfman's 2-page note yet, so maybe there's some explanation there.

Awesome. I just love that they put that additional music on the USB key. What a fantastic-looking package too. This is kind of a dream-project for me... I can only imagine a Williams/Spielberg project release like this.

Thanks for all the pictures!

I have yet to really dig through the book, but I skimmed it and it does indeed look fantastic. The USB is amazing on its own. It's an iTunes just for this box, and it took about 5 minutes to rip everything off it onto my computer. Very useful.

Can you just copy them off directly without using the built-in interface?

Ah shit, I forgot to check the bit rate. They're 192, I'm gonna have to go through and rip them all now! Oh well, it'll be fun to look through each CD extensively. In regard to your question about the individual booklets, there are none. They're kind of like mini-LP replicas. Cardboard sleeve with Burton's artwork and track listing, and inside is a folded sheet of paper with the original OST artwork and a note from Elfman with the CD in between. Not the best storage system.

You can't rip them straight off the drive. You open up the interface and you can go through and open up each album. There you can choose to save each track individually or conveniently hit the save all button and it'll copy it to a folder of your choice in seconds.
