Anyone know where I can order the complete Australian Box Set that came out a couple of years ago with the exclusive extras to be delivered to the UK?

Did it have extras? I don't remember that.
The complete box set doesn't seem to be available but you can get the individual boxes from dvdland.com.au or fishpond.com.au (watch out with fishpond though, it does UK imports so make sure it mentions region 4 or Madman)

Thanks for the quick replies.
Do either of you know how much footage from The Avengers at 50 appears on the Australian sets. I attended the event and would love to see it again but not sure if I want to buy the sets again if its just a few minutes on each set?

Appreciate any info if you have it

thank you

Many thanks Dissolute really appreciate that. Looks like the exclusive extras are quite substantial so looks like I will be buying again!
Wish they could have got The Avengers at 50 exclusives features on the UK Blu Rays.

Im having a screening of The Cybernauts trilogy in June and wanted to show some of these exclusive extras then.

thanks again Smile
