I received the all-regions version (for those who don't know what I mean, it's formatted to play all over the world rather than a specific region like most movies). It plays perfectly in my PS4. This won't matter to most, but I figured I'd let those who care know.

Please note, the digital copies are only for SD quality. I did not see anywhere in the product description of the digital copies being only in SD quality. For around $100 this product should have included the digital copies to be in HD format. I regret opening the box.
The scene selection doesn't always work how it should. Sometimes it just ignores that I want to start the movie over and continues to play from the last spot it remembers and I have to forward to the end and start all over without using the scene selection button. Otherwise I'm completely satisfied with this set even though it's the US edition. It was cheaper and the actual movies work with a better picture quality, fine by me 😊
These are some of the best movies that Disney has to offer and they come in this large collection. I only bought it because I didn't own any of them on blu-ray and it was 50% off. A really good deal. The quality of these blu-rays is flawless in every aspect. Its great that the set also comes with the dvds and digital copies. I do have to agree,however, that the packaging is a bit of an oversight. Having to grab each disc by the edge is a pain since there is no way to do so without smudging them with finger prints. It happens no matter how careful you are. That is the only complaint I have with the product though. I am still happy with my purchase and it was worth it to me. I would really only recommend this to those who don't have the movies already on blu-ray.
Works sometimes in the 3D bluray i have but always works in the PS4. Atleast so far, because they played fine in the bluray for awhile then started having problems. We make sure to take care of our discs there are no scratches it just must be the international thing or whatever.
It took a lot of patience on my part but here we are. I waited for these films to come in one package. Not buying the DVD versions. Waited when the third film came out in theaters and Disney released the previous two on Blu-Ray in separate packs. Waited, despite the begging from my wife and daughter to get the films already. But I held out... And now THEY ARE MINE! (Insert evil laughter here.)
So is it everything I had hoped for? Well, I have to say yes. Here is my take on it.
The set comes in a beautiful box that is as colorful as the films themselves. Open it reveals a mini version of Andy's toy box and opening that reveals the discs, held in place by pre-formed foam. The toy box itself is adorable and I don't mind the lack of jewel cases. The only problem is that the slots where the discs slid into are delicate and continuous use will probably wear them out. Plus its very easy to confuse the slots and place the discs in the wrong slot. Aside from that, the presentation looks awesome in my opinion. Some better execution would have made it better. The box now sits proudly at the top of my movie collection.
The collection has 10 discs. A BD version of the films, a DVD version and a Digital Copy version, which is pretty much par for the course for a Disney release. The DVD versions will of course have permanent play on our mini-van. The tenth disc is the Bonus Features of the stand alone release of the third film. Many have cried foul over this fact as many were hoping the tenth disc was going to be unique for this release but alas, it was not to be. For me, there are two possible explanations: 1) Disney simply tried to homogenize the release. the other two films have their respective previous special features. The third film is the only one of the three released in the Blu-Ray era so to be faithful, they threw that in. 2) In an effort two make us double dip, they held out any new extra content for a future inevitable anniversary edition of this collection. The reaction to this is completely understandable I think, considering just how good the extras on Pixar films have been but here is the reason it doesn't bother me one bit:
The transfers to BD of all three films is SO good, I forget everything else.
As it turns out, my patience was rewarded twice. In my stubbornness to wait out this collection I found myself asking my brother to lend me his DVD versions of Toy Story 1 & 2 1 week before this box came out hoping to calm my daughter's desperation as she simply loves these films. This gave me the opportunity to make a side by side comparison and I have to tell you. These transfers are impressive. Most impressive. The BD editions simply blow any previous releases out of the water. Those familiar with Pixar Blu-Rays will find no surprises in that last comment but since Toy Story is the first (and therefore oldest) film n the Pixar canon, I wondered how it would turn out but I should not have worried. Watching these films on Blu makes watching the DVD versions look like trying to watch a movie screen through a screen door. You have not watched these films until you watch them on Blu-Ray. Even if you saw them in theaters. They are that good.
So, is it worth it? For me, absolutely. Since I don't own a previous version of any of the films included here, this collection is downright perfect. However, owners of previous editions who might be looking for more can be(and have been) dissapointed. So despite the little flaws in the packaging I give it a solid 4 stars. The digital transfers alone are worth the price of admission and besides, buying all three films separately costs pretty much the same anyway. Highly recommended.
The discs play fine for me so it isn't an issue, but these are definitely the UK edition, despite what the info on the listing says. I am glad they play but if you need region 1 to have them work for you, they aren't.
I love the first two movies more than the 3rd. But this box set is great for kids. Its rather large and does not fit in normal DVD/Blu-Ray racks. The reason it has a 4 star rating is the inserts for the disks are not so good. Especially if you have a little one wanting to pull the disk out or put it back. You likely should keep this away from the kids when taking the movies out.
