With M. Night Shyamalan's live action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender hitting theatres in July, Nickelodeon/Paramount is doing what any studio would do: fill the shelves with DVDs to tie-in to the release.
I should point out that I don't actually know what's different from the previous release. I knew this set has 7 discs and the other only had 6. it sound like that extra disc has a new documentary.This new set also contains a book full of designs and artwork.
The price is really good. $26.99 for a 20 episode TV series. isn't too bad, especially with all the goodies. The Original Book 1 box set cost $40.
But as much as I loved the show (and am rather dreading the movie) I can't see myself drop over $25 bucks on something I already own.
And for me this would actually be a triple dip. Nickelodeon first released Avatar1 in single disc releases that I had to sell once they were doing box sets.
So if you've never bought any Airbender DVDs, now's the chance to get the best deal on them.
And you want to make five bucks, I'll totally buy that book off of you.
1If there's one thing I begrudge James Cameron's movie for it's that I can't mention the cartoon without saying the full name or saying "Not that Avatar, the other one."
