I'd rather get the movies cheaper in a box set I have to add to than insist on getting them individual or not buy a movie series I want until it's announced they are done just for some principle of "that's not a truely complete box set."

    Now, if it's a known quantity (like the Harry Potter movies), where you know exactly how many movies will be made and when they are done, that's different, but for ongoing series? Why not.
    Maybe it's just because I'm not too big on box sets to begin with. It just seems lame to have a "Ultimate whatever, blah, blah, blah" set, then have a movie or two tacked on afterwards. I often find that box sets don't actually seem to save all that much money over individual movies, especially when they add all sorts of bells and whistles to it because it is "Ultimate". I mean, they are usually cheaper than buying the individual movies when they come out, but by the time they make the collection, many of the individual movies can already be found for mighty cheap in most cases.

    The Adamantium collection pictures above is a case in point. Its list price is $200. Even the discounted price is $130. I'd bet you could get the individual movies in Blu-Ray format for less than that nowadays. So for me the only real reason to get it at all would be the advantage of having the cool packaging to store the entire series in, which is somewhat negated if they then add a couple more movies that don't fit.
