    Consider this...

    "Statement from Warner Home Video, November 27, 2006

    Bonus content was omitted from the "Superman III Deluxe Edition" in the 14-disc "Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition." Furthermore, disc one of "Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition" did not include the Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. Neither disc is known to be physically defective in any way.

    Warner Home Video wants to extend apologies to all of our loyal Superman fans who've waited so patiently for these great collections and has taken immediate steps to correct these errors with the intention of standing behind our product 100%.

    Replacement discs can be obtained by calling: 800-553-6937. The exchange program applies only to purchases of the “Superman III Deluxe Edition” in the “Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition” and to disc one of “Superman: The Movie Four Disc Special Edition,” available as a single title, as well as in “The Christopher Reeve Superman Collection” and in the “Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition.”

    Apparently the Superman III disc was printed using the exact same files as the last dvd release. Super lame-ass mistake.

    I'm not surprised about the screw-ups because I'm too busy being surprised that they managed to fill 14 disks.

    Almost bought that set at Target today. Shame they goofed but atleast they're taking responsibility and offering free replacement discs.
    Wonder how they messed up in the first place, those are some pretty big goofs

    Probably a long time. It took a couple of years before I could find a "fixed" edition of Back to the Future on store shelves.

    Well I just called in to get my replacements, here is what I have to do...

    Wait 7-10 days for a prepaid envelope to come, then I have to send in my 2 discs first and wait 2-3 weeks for a replacement....

    Not really crazy about sending my discs in first, I figure that since they screwed up they should take the first step instead of making me be without my movies for a few weeks and hopefully they don't get lost...

    Anyway, besides that this set is great! Superman II Richard Donner is outstanding and the rest of the bonus material kicks butt.

    It was hard as hell to find as well, had to go to 6 different stores and they were all sold out, finally had to pay full price on it at Borders, but it was worth it!

    Well, you'll need to send them SOMETHING as proof that you bought the discs, otherwise they'd be giving away free movies.

    You have a point, all they had me do to verify was read off the last 5 of the UPC.

    WARNING WARNING WARNING

    TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR DISC 12. I AM ASSUMING THIS IS THE DISC THAT IS SUPPOSED TO INCLUDE THE COMPLETE SUPERMAN 1940'S CARTOON AND THE OLD SUPERMAN VS THE MOLE MEN EPISODE.

    ONE THING I NOTICED IS THAT MY "LOOK UP IN THE SKI DISC" IS NOT THE SAME AS THE PICTURE ON THE BACK AND DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME DEISGN STYLE AS THE REST OF THE DISC.

    CAN ANYONE WITH THE SET CONFIRM THAT MINE IS AN ERROR AND THAT THEY DO HAVE THE RIGHT DISC AND THE CARTOON SERIES?

    Thanx

    Not sure about the disc picture as I am at work, but Superman vs the Mole Men and the cartoons are actually on disc 4. Their are some more cartoons on another disc as well, but I don't think it's 12. Check the newspaper like flyer that came with it, kinda hard to read at first but it's a good guide to the 14 discs
