    The Loony Tunes collection is the only thing I see worth buying. Especially since my 7 year old has recently taken a liking to them. We don’t have any of the golden collection sets yet, so while there may be some overlap with one he has, it wouldn’t be re-buying.

    • Which collections do you have? The old premium collections were unrestored, and half of that year’s Golden Collection (with one exception that also included a Looney Tunes movie.) Those will have 100% overlap. The individual character releases initially came out with a specific decision NOT to overlap with the Golden Collections, though that seems to have slightly relaxed since they stopped making Golden Collections. The Platinum collection that came out on Blu-Ray has more overlap than the partial releases. Still, I’d say this is the lowest per-cartoon price for anything out so far, and it’s fully restored and remastered.

      • Fez says:

        I could swear he had more than one but the only one I see on the shelf is Looney Tunes Spotlight Collection, Premiere edition. so it may be that with so many in this set it would have them all anyhow.

        He doesn’t have a Blu-Ray player in his room, and we don’t have one that can travel like our portable DVD player, so for things like this, DVD is still king.

        Too late to pick that up for Christmas though (already have tons of stuff for him), wonder if the price might drop by the time his birthday comes around.

        • Yeah, everything in the spotlight collection is duplicated here. So, you’re getting remastered versions of those cartoons, plus 22 additional DVDs worth of content, so it’s still a good deal in my book. I also wouldn’t bet on an additional price decrease; this is the price decrease version on a 24 DVD set.
