Ultimate Bond Boxset?

I've been looking for this for the last two months or so, nowhere has it any more! Does anyone know of any shops that have it in stock? The prices on eBay are a bit crazy.

I know that the attache case was limited, I'm not looking for that, not at 400 Euro on eBay! But I'd like the normal boxset, it was 150 Euro in HMV, but they're out of stock now. Anyone see them anywhere or know if they're still available?

I finally cracked and ordered it on eBay, 220 Euro delivered. It was 250 Euro in HMV, so I'm happy!

Do you honestly think they're ever going to stop making Bond films? You could wait another 20 years, still have another Bond on the horizon, and some other fancy box set, possibly on a new format too.

But you get a card with the boxset that you fill out and send to emo. Then when the next bond film comes out you bring your case back to the store and assuming it is in good nick they upgrade it to the next case. The card entitles you to do this for the next 80 years, I imagine I will be dead by then so that is why it doesnt really bother be. It will be interesting to see what format the collection will be on in 80 years time. Perhaps some sort of holographic medium where you sit in the middle of the action?

That was why I never bought any Bond boxsets before this one, I didn't like the idea of an incomplete one! But Casino Royale sort of reboots the franchise, it's the start of a new era. So, the first 20 films are "Old Bond" and that's why I feel okay with it. Besides, to get every Bond film, one needs to get Never Say Never Again and the old Casino Royale. They won't be in a boxset with the rest. And 20 is a nice even number for the set. Do I need to justify my purchase any more?!
