Boy, I sure hope they re-issue the others as well. To think that I balked at paying $40 or so for them when they were new... I moved fast enough to pay not much more than that for "Fellowship" after it went OOP but more than I would have liked for "Return of the King".... and I made sure to buy the CDs for The Hobbit trilogy from Amazon when they were new, having learned my lesson (although I'm not sure how much I would have cared, in hindsight)... but I am not going to pay $200 and up for "Two Towers," no matter how much that hole in my little Shore LOTR collection bugs me. A reissue would plug the hole quite nicely!

I don't know but I don't still believe $80 is the final price.

What do you think?

This is now listed as £64.99 in U.K. (Amazon). Still quite expensive for 3 discs and 1 blu ray, I think this may come down before the release date.

I missed out on the sets last time, no way would I pay the prices on the secondary market, so this may still be a cheaper option even for the current price.

I got these sets over three Christmases just after they had been released individually and available from Amazon. As I recall FOTR and the TT were selling at $80 with ROFT at $90 (it is a five discs in total). Those prices may fall, however if I were you I wouldn't wait too long to pick them up.

I know this may seem like a silly question, but is there any difference in what retailer we use to purchase these from? Amazon? Best Buy? Walmart?

One thing that bothered me about the original release on the DVD is that you couldn't pause the song, or rewind or fast forward. The music quality is great, but when I have it on in the background and need a pause for a moment to take a call, I can't pause the track, so you have to mute it, then when you unmute it, you can't rewind the track.

Hopefully they fix this (if they can), as it is very annoying. When I was listening to specific leitmotifs with my dad in his theater, we wanted to jump right to those themes, but couldn't on the DVD version, so we had to settle for the audio CD.
