I wonder if the 45th anniversary DVD presents any improvement over the 40th anniversary DVD.

I have the R3 40th anniversary DVD and it already has a great PQ over the 5-star edition.

Fox produces 250,000 of this boxset.  Each one is individually numbered, but the sheer number probably would reduce the desirability of the set.  Granted that this is an AAA title, but most would probably opt for the simple Bluray/DVD Combo and save $50, after all, the US economy is just barely getting out of recession...
Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
