Warner Home Video has announced the Batman: the Complete Animated Series DVD Box Set! This slick looking set will include all four volumes, 16 discs, of the series that have already been released including a bonus disc filled with new special features and a 40-page collector's booklet!
The collection will include all 107 episodes of Batman: the Animated Series, The Adventures of Batman and Robin and The New Batman Adventures and all of the bonus features and commentaries from the previous sets will be included in this set too. The three movies, however, will not be included.
The suggested retail price will be $107.92 and will hit the shelves on November 4th.
My question is will collectors really buy this even though we have bought all four of the previous volumes? I have a hard time justifying that even if package looks really cool.
UPDATE: New information from tvshowsondvd.com gives a better idea of the slipcover packaging and the back cover that will probably come lightly glued to the back.
The back cover comes with info about a new documentary that will be included on the bonus 17th disc called Shades of the Bat: Batman's Animated Evolution.
Also, there was a question about the audio and subtitles for this set. It looks like they will be the same as previously released. Volume 1-3 includes audio and subtitle tracks in English, French and Spanish and volume four includes audio in English and French and subtitles in English, French and Spanish. None of the bonus features will have alternate audio and subtitles.
