    I bet they won't even bother with a new boxed set with all 4 films in 5-6 months or so. After all, I held out on buying the Star Wars prequel trilogy DVDs until I was certain that they wouldn't release them in a pack, (in which case it'd be cheaper than buying them new and separate) but they never did come out with that, and as far as I know, don't plan on it.

    As for this new set, the old one is better. It's got more special features, and some that are on here even appear in various areas/times in the stuff on disc 4 of the original dvd collection, such as the creepy crawlies and the melting face.

    The marketing team can't be dumb enough to release this if they were planning on releasing a 4 film box set (at least if it was anytime soon). Or, they just released these to boost interest in the new generations and invigorate the old ones to see the fourth film, though I don't need reminding.

    The artwork on the packaging is better than the December 16, 2003 release, but not worth buying over.

    cant see much to entice me to buy this box set...knowing that after the movie has been shown, there'll probably be ANOTHER box set with the 4th movie included. I'm still waiting for the TV Young Indy to comeout on DVD to complete the collection. Does anybody know if there will be a release?

    They better be on Blu-ray also considering that by the time the newest one hits home video that Paramount should be in full Blu-ray stride.
