I've attached two photos: one from the box set and one from streaming on Amazon. If you look closely you might be able to see the double-line blur on the box set image. Looks fine when streaming on Amazon though. You'd think they could fix this... But I guess they just want to get rid of old stock by repackaging it.
As far as this Complete Series boxset is concerned.....it's pretty much the three individual seasons/books releases (2006, 2007, 2008) with less impressive concept art and a simple compact boxset to hold all three together. Visually, it's an unimpressive casing compared to simply buying all three seasons separately. Beyond this superficial comment, the *real* downside to the quality of this set (and the individual set editions before it) is that Book 1: Water, Disc 1 has AWFUL image quality/display properties. You heard me right, if you are having this problem, your copy isn't bad.....they all are. All animation stills are blurry with a choppy quality that seems to be the result of a terrible digital scan during creation. Again, the problem is....it's on ALL copies of this show's release and they are bad from the "production factory" core. There is no avoiding it and frankly, the only way you are going to get a better quality picture, is to find one of the many illegal cartoon streaming sites that has the show in 1080p image quality. Hopefully when and if Nickelodeon releases this show to BluRay, they resolve this problem instead of shamelessly just repackaging like they have the past two or three release editions.
What's unfathomable to me is that the quality was not fixed between Book 1's original 2006 boxset release and this Complete Collection in 2015. It's deplorable. A sorry state indeed.
That said, the DVDs do not do it justice. They were too compressed when Nick made them, and haven't had any updates since. There's a guide at https://www.reddit.com/r/TheLastAirbender/comments/3nd8pj/no_spoilers_would_anyone_be_interested_in_a/ that helps but depends heavily on a powerful computer.
But whatever, I want the series not the ads. First season is great, no flaws in the transfer. Season two is where the issues come up. The first episode is fine, and so is episode 2 until the end of the episode when it freezes. Then the next episode doesn't work at all. I stopped watching the show, and sent it back. I also hear that season 3 was missing episodes, so this is obviously a bad collection and this wasn't just my copy.
This show deserves better, and I hope it gets something better in the future. Please don't buy this product, Nickelodeon needs to know that we demand better.
