Please note, this is a Region B release but being that 4K Ultra HD discs are essentially Region Free, you'll want to grab the 4K Ultra HD set from Zavvi if you're here in the states without a Region Free player. However, only the first three discs in the 4K set are Region Free, the other disc is a Region B Blu-ray, so you'll still need a Region Free player to watch that one.


The Blu-ray set features all Region B discs, so unless you're some sort of masochist (and hey, we don't judge here at CryptTeaze), do not buy the Blu-ray set if you're without the proper hardware, otherwise you'll just end up with a very nice paperweight!


If you're in the UK, you can pre-order the Blu-ray Set (£69.99) or the 4K Ultra HD Set (£79.99) from Second Sight. Those in the US can buy the 4K Ultra HD Set ($99.99) from Zavvi.
