A few minor criticisms:

In looking at the reviews, it seems the Cinderella jewelry box set is somewhat poorly made and did not meet the expectations of many customers.

As for the Toy Story 3D trilogy, it only includes the 3D versions of the movies. If you also want the 2D blu-ray or perhaps would like a digital copy, you should consider buying the individual 3D sets instead (though the individual prices are high at the moment):
Toy Story (Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)
Toy Story 2 (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy)
Toy Story 3 (Five-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy)

These prices aren't impressive, but Disney stuff is rarely on sale except when first released, so I guess it is a decent deal if you were thinking of buying the collections soon. These are about $10-$15 less than normal, but frankly the normal prices are too high considering what you get (JMM explained why box nothing special and the Toy Story includes -only- the 3D versions and does not include the DVD, regular Blu-Ray, Digital Copy, or any extra Special Features disks).

After I saw the Cinderella jewelry box in person (at Costco), I passed, but it wasn't horrible. The Toy Story set is a total barebones set that can be viewed only in 3D so has a pretty limited audience.

The Cinderella box set with the small jewelry box is available now at many Costco locations (not online) for about the same price. If you want to call a store to check, I believe the Item Number is 688121.

At Costco the Cindy set is 54.99, so this is a much better deal than Costco.

Toy Story is tempting. I do, in fact, already have the trilogy, so the fact that these are 3D only is fine by me. This is about the lowest price ever by about $10, and Disney products rarely see sales. $16 per 3D flick isn't bad; probably won't ever be much better.

Just want to point out that for 44.49 you get all 3 cinderella movies currently the 2 Disc Diamond Edition Cinderella Blu-ray/DVD Combo is currently at 24.96 and the Cinderella II and III Blu-ray/DVD is 27.86 totally for 52.82. So you save just on the movies themselves. With the Toy Story movies I bought the ultimate boxset when it was a golden deal of the day (like 2 years ago when it came out) Toy Story Ultimate Toy Box Collection (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) Everyone complains about the packaging, and its true its not that great, thats why I always wait until these Golden Deals of the Day to get them, because it is cheaper than getting them separately and they rarely ever have sales on Disney stuff.

3D technical Toy Story question: Can the Toy Story 3D discs play a 2D version of the movie on a non-3D capable Bluray player? Will there be any difference in picture quality watching the 2D version of the 3D discs vs if I buy the original 2D Bluray set? Thanks in advance.

There is no 3D version here. This release is identical to the 3D discs on the individual 3D releases. You can't watch it without a 3D player.

The Toy Story 3D trilogy boxset is ideally suited for 2 types of consumers:

(1) For those who have previously bought the individual 2D Blu-ray releases, and want to simply add the 3D versions to their collection.
(2) For those who are mainly interested in or prefer 3D, and don't need the extra non-3D formats.

Consumers have long complained about having to purchase unwanted discs at additional costs, and I believe Disney has made this set available for this reason. Having said that, I agree with JMM that if you want the 2D Blu-ray or digital copy as well, all in one place, the individual 3D combo packs are the way to go.

Personally, I originally bought the BD/DVD/DC combo packs. Once the 3D combo packs were available, I bought those and resold my older copies.

Yes, 3D on a 2D set will likely play.. but will look like the screen is split in half with a copy of the movie playing on each side, so it will be unwatchable.

The 3D technology is what interlaces the two frames (left eye, Right eye) into one full frame

Nope, wrongo.

The HDMI handshake will not allow a Blu-ray 3D to play on a non 3d tv.

You are describing broadcast 3d.

That is DANGEROUS misinformation.3D Blurays only play on 3D TVs. Even if you have a 3D Player. You need 3D all the way up the chain for it to work.

I just tried playing a 3D Blu-ray on my non-3D Blu-ray Player in my bedroom, you will get a message screen that it will NOT play on a non-3D player.

No use having a 3d disc if you don't have the whole ball of wax. My TV allows you to convert the 3d image to 2d, or, if I want, the rest of the viewers can watch 3d and I can see it in 2d by flipping a switch on my active shutter glasses. cool

I'm surprised the disc doesn't give you a choice of 3d or 2d on the menu.
Several of my discs do that. hmmmm

How dangerous? Can someone get their eye poked out? Or lose a limb?
