CBS Home Entertainment has announced that it is releasing new Blu-ray complete series sets for the The Original Series and The Next Generation in brand new packaging in time for the 50th anniversary. For fans in North America this is the first time a nicely boxed up complete set has been made available for the Blu-ray releases of the two series.
Pics of the new boxes after the break.
Here are the two new handsome packages for the complete series sets. There’s technically nothing new to this release, but if you’ve been holding out for a complete series package, or know someone who wants one or both of the complete series, these would be the releases to get.
The TNG set will have all the discs that were released as part of the individual season sets, but does not include the five special standalone releases of “The Best of Both Worlds,” “Redemption,” “Unification,” “Chain of Command,” and “All Good Things…”, and naturally, it then doesn’t their exclusive bonus materials either, which a bit of a bummer, but not too surprising. This release is for new and/or more casual fans who want a (hard) copy of TNG.
Also note CBS is doing a re-release of TNG on DVD, it is yet another repackaging of the same (old) DVD releases from the early-2000s.
