    I want it, but I'm not buying. I'm not a huge Bond fan, but I have all the DVDs and Casino Royale on Blu-ray, so I'm content.

    @bawnian-dexeus Keep as historical items. I never owned a Bond film in my life, so this set would be perfect for me, yet at the same time, it's never going to be "complete".

    Hmm, should I sell the DVD collection I have or keep them as historical items?
