Harry Potter and the Astronomically Priced Box Set

There’s no doubt that Harry Potter fans are some of the most passionate fans in the world; camping out for book releases, midnight movie premieres, and of course, J.K. Rowling tickets… but are they willing to pay $880 for a set of books?

We recently reported that there would be an expanded, more comprehensive edition of Harry Potter Film Wizardry releasing next month, but now Amazon UK is listing a box set that is “Worthy of a vault at Gringotts, this amazing limited edition collection features never-before-published art and text chronicling the making of the Harry Potter films”. It also states that the set will be limited to only 3,000 copies worldwide.

Of course expanded, limited editions are always welcome in a Potter fans collection (Wizard’s Collection, anyone?), but this box set has a hefty price tag… 552GBP or approximately $880! It will have seven volumes (five directly related to the filmmaking process), a cloth bound copy of Harry Potter: Page to Screen, and a prop replica of The Monsters Book of Monsters. You can read all about the collection right here, on Amazon UK.

What do you think of this new collection? Will you be saving up to purchase this hefty gem?

Thanks to Danny B. for the tip!

I am a 40-something Ravenclaw/Slytherin from Massachusetts. I've been lucky in life and can attribute a lot of that to Harry Potter. Without it, I wouldn't have at least 80% of the things I do today, including my career & closest friends. I truly despise Sirius Black.
