Remember the $880 collection we reported on back in September? Well, break out your wallet Potter fans because the collection has been officially announced – and for not only $880, but $1000!
The collection, which contains eight books, boasts about amazing features such as “never-before-published art and photographs, comes with its own cloth-covered shelf (as if from a shop in Diagon Alley), and includes a gilded portfolio of five frame-able prints, a replica of The Monster Book of Monsters, and eight gorgeous books chronicling the making of the Harry Potter films, from creatures and costumes to casting and set locations.”
The collection, of course, sounds amazing, but even with the current 40% off that Amazon is offering, the box set would still come to a whopping $600. Potter fans are getting increasingly frustrated with the high price items that are coming onto the market – The Wizard’s Collection, for example – and they’re asking when it’s going to stop. There has even been an expanded, more comprehensive version of Harry Potter Film Wizardy released, which some still refused to purchase stating that they already had the book from years before.
The collection does seem impressive, and with the limited release of only 3,000 worldwide, it is sure to become a collector’s item someday. However I, for one, would rather save the $1000 (or even $600) and visit London instead!
