Stargate SG-1: The Complete Series on DVD  
So I've heard that this DVD set was just released.  And that it comes jam-packed with stuff.  I have a question for anyone who is getting it or has gotten it...

Are the extras worth it at all? I have all the seasons on DVD already except for S10, which I don't really have any interest in buying since I have a bunch of the eps recorded onto dvd already (and I really wasn't crazy about many of the eps this season anyway).  I browsed a few sites and it sounds like most of the extras from the previous dvd sets are on it (including the video diaries, director's series, Lowdown specials, the specials SciFi did, etc.) although I didn't see the S1-2 extras listed (like the profiles on Jack, Daniel, Sam, Teal'c and Hammond). 

It does seem like there are extras not found on any of the previous dvd sets though, like "Beyond the Gate: A convention experience", a couple of Director's Series that were only on the UK versions I believe (including Revisions, which I've seen bits and pieces of before and I love... come on, AT, MS and CJ clowning around in a trailer! Gotta love it :D), The Last Day of Teal'c, which was only on the UK release, and a few others I've never heard of.  I already have the Lowdowns either from the previous sets or taped off of tv, especially the 200th episode, Science of Stargate and Behind the Mythology specials. 

I really wish that they'd release some of these extras on individual dvd sets.  I mean, $250 or whatever the price this is going for is a lot to shell out, especially for me... and I wish they'd release a blooper reel or outtakes from all the seasons, even the earlier ones.     I know some of my friends have said that they'd sell all their season boxsets and purchase this, but I don't really want to do that (some of my sets are getting a bit worn out as it is).

So, if anyone's purchased this already or is planning on doing so, please let me know what the extras are like and if you think it's worth it to do something crazy like sell off my previous sets to get something like this.

My understanding is that the four extra disks are all stuff that wasn't released on the US seasonal DVDs. I know at least some of it was on the UK versions, because the "Con Experience" bits for Amanda and Michael were; someone sent them to me, as I was in them.

I was reading a few reviews of the set and I saw a list of the extras. Not sure if it was a complete list, but I did recognize some of them as being on the UK versions. I wouldn't mind having some of those, but I still don't think I want to sell off my old sets to get this one (plus I wasn't crazy about season 10 anyway so I think it'd almost be a waste to get it on dvd, unless I give it to someone else).

But if you gave away a disk, the others would be loose in the box...

I haven't decided either. I try to respect copyright and not get pirated copies of stuff. But it's hard when you already have all the other 10, which I do, and suddenly there's all this new material. And I can't sell my DVDs for anything near what I paid for them with places like Columbia House offering S1 for $19.95 and get S2 for free.

That's a good point...

I don't like getting pirated stuff either. I guess in a way this is a good money-making technique. I've seen screen caps from some of the extra material before, which is nice, but I am still curious about what's out there. It's a tough call.

I doubt I could sell my DVDs for anything close to what I paid for them either, particularly since a few of the earlier season ones are getting a little worn.

That's 164 €. Wow, that's cheap !!! With my luck they won't release it in Europe - or at least nor for that price :-( Guess, I'll wait ... and see ... and buy the individual boxes some day.

Aw I hope that they will! I know some people who are buying it just for the collectible tin that it comes in.
