Packaging / Design

Okey, so what can I say about such a legendary and overpriced box set?
Is it worth the money? Not by a long shot. Is it well made? Yeah, it's
pretty decent but not as impressive as it would have been at the right
price. And last but not least - is it awesome? Oh yeah, you can bet
your old obsolete plastic limited edition Neo bust it is!

As I've said time and time again I think that the price of this set is
just ludicris and actually buying it was more along the lines of
temporary insanity than of rational thinking. According to what I've
heard there were only 400 copied made but it's still in stock at
amazon even though the release date has been passed by as much as a
year (which also leads me to believe that even the japanese found this
to be way to expensive).

Never the less, if you just look at the quality I think that this is
really cool. The ship was made by HotToys and is obviously all plastic
but it's quite detailed and everything is painted on as apposed to
being your typical kiddy-toy sticker-graphics. And another thing that
really amazes me is just the share size of it. I mean the outer box
itself is just gasp-worthy. WHERE THE HELL AM I GONNA STORE THIS!?

Furthermore there was quite a lot of movable parts, such as the hover
engines and the exterior guns. Another nice touch is the fact that all
the antennas are made from a flexible plastic so you don't have to
worry about breaking them.

The top of the ship comes with a hidden compartment where you store
all the discs mounted om detachable disc-trays. And if you don't want
to keep the discs inside the ship, all of the standard keepcases are
also included together with a sturdy glossy cardboard box.

So to sum it all up I'd say this is easily the coolest Matrix box if
you are into models and such but if you're all about digipacks and
don't really give a shit about the 'Neb' then I would probably suggest
the old 10 disc DVD box as this had a far superior layout when it came
to the disc housing.

Apart from this the only real downside of the set would be that it doesn't really do anything. I mean I know it's just a DVD box set but for this amount of money it would have been nice with somekind of lighting effect or other technical wizardry for the ship.


Disc contents / Extras

When it comes to the discs, this set is just about as impressive as the ship itself. From the looks of it this set is sort of similar to the old 10 disc DVD box set but it also adds a couple of extras that were missing on that particular box set (the old audio commentary tracks that appeared on the original dvd-release of The Matrix for instance).

Discussing all the extras and special features isn't really what I'm trying to do here as this can be found on so many other website and quite frankly I don't have the time. However, I will mention that it's an absolute staggering amount of bonus features and comes of as a very complete and well made set.

Another thing that was a very pleasant surprise was that despite being a japanese release ALL the menus are presented in english (it's quite common to get all japanese menus, which obviously becomes kind of confusing when you're dealing with a large array of extras), and not only that, ALL of the special features actually have the running time shown within the menu system! (Okay, maybe that's not very important to most people, but it sure made the specs listing a lot simpler for me so go figure).

So there you go - a very well packed box set and with a slight edge over the old DVD set for including the previously missing original audio commentaries.


Sidenotes

I've seen pictures of this box set where it had a big sticker showing the number of that particular copy but my box didn't come with a sticker.
