STAR TREK: 50TH ANNIVERSARY TV AND MOVIE COLLECTION

Old school Trekkies are going to love this bountiful collection (sorry Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine and J.J. Abrams fans). Loaded with 30 discs and 20 hours of bonus features, this lavish set contains all three seasons of The Original Series and every movie from Star Trek: The Motion Picture to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, including the recently released Director’s Cut of The Wrath of Khan. The beloved 1973 Animated Series also makes its remastered Blu-ray debut. Mini-posters for each film and a Starfleet pin are the icing on the cake.


02 MIDDLE EARTH LIMITED ED

THE MIDDLE EARTH 6-FILM COLLECTION
Official Store | Amazon
If you’ve never purchased any of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings films before, nab them all at once with this gasp-inducing set. This limited Collector’s Edition features the extended versions of all six movies. All 30 discs are housed in stylish, faux-leather books, complete with their own wooden shelf. That’s a butt-numbing amount of time on the couch. The collection also contains watercolor painting reproductions by legendary concept artists Alan Lee and John Howe and a 100-page sketch book.


03 4K BourneUltimateCollection 3D

THE ULTIMATE BOURNE COLLECTION (4K)
Best Buy Exclusive
While Jason Bourne is still trying to remember who the hell he is, you can remember that special someone and surprise them with this explosive collection. All five Bourne films are present and accounted for, from The Bourne Supremacy to the recent Jason Bourne, and yes, even “that Jeremy Renner one” (The Bourne Legacy) is here. Aside from the standard Blu-ray discs and Digital HD format, this set is the one to have if you own a 4K television. Relive the series with pristine 4K-Ultra HD Blu-ray discs, which are the highlight of this must-have set.


04 Mad Max High Octane

MAD MAX: HIGH OCTANE COLLECTION
Official Store | Amazon
Last year’s Mad Max Anthology became obsolete faster than Max’s V8 interceptor. This new version, the High Octane Collection, features all four films: Mad Max, The Road Warrior, Beyond Thunderdome and Fury Road. But unlike last year’s set, this one contains an 4K-Ultra HD version of Fury Road as well as the all-new “Black and Chrome” edition—a beautiful black-and-white version of the film complete with an intro by George Miller. Got extra money or “aqua-cola” to splurge? Go for the Amazon Exclusive version of the set, which sports a mini-replica of the V8 Interceptor.

BILL AND TED’S MOST EXCELLENT COLLECTION
Shout! Factory Store
This bodacious collection features both Bill and Ted movies on Blu-ray for the very first time, and it’s packed to the max with bonus featurettes and goodies.

This limited-edition figure was designed by the talented folks over at McFarlane Toys, who are no stranger to designing all things Walking Dead.


08 Aliens Glamour Shot

ALIENS: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
Amazon
Arguably one of the greatest sequels ever, James Cameron’s sci-fi/action/horror epic recently turned 30, and for that, it was treated to this slick new anniversary edition sporting all-new embossed artwork.

As an added bonus, you also get a collectible Dark Horse comic book that features images from the popular comic book series and “art cards” featuring concept art from the film.


09 HELLRAISER EXPLODED PACKSHOT V5

HELLRAISER: THE SCARLET BOX
Official Store | Amazon
Pinhead once said, “We have such sites to show you.” He was probably talking about this darkly handsome new box set, featuring 2K restorations of the unholy trinity of Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II and Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth. Fear not: None of the later direct-to-DVD sequels taint this collection. More pleasures inside the box include a 200-page hardback book with new writing from Clive Barker archivists, a 20-page booklet of unearthed concept art, exclusive art cards and a reversible foldout poster.

11 Game Of Thrones 1-6

GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1-6

New bonus features for season 6 include “The Battle of the Bastards”—an in-depth look at the production of the show that explores visual effects, stunts and interviews. There’s also tons of audio commentaries, in-episode guides and much more.
