Following last year’s separate 4K releases of the Lord of The Rings and Hobbit trilogies, Warner Bros have now finally confirmed their long-awaited combined collectors edition release, set for October.

As expected, the set will contain the Theatrical and Extended editions of all 6 films on 4K and Blu-ray (with new transfers based on the 4K remasters), presented in individual digipacks, along with a One Ring replica, art cards and 64-page booklet, and a new exclusive bonus disc.

Contrary to previous expectations, previously-released extras will NOT be included, so we’re not quite sure it deservers the ‘Ultimate’ label…

Pre-orders are live now and we’ll add more links as we get them.

Pre-order: Amazon UK

    Not bad, but this is still the best looking set they’ve put out. Chuck your 4K discs in one of these and you’re set 👌

    I feel sorry for thepeople were holding off buying the two steelbook sets, waiting for this. The outside looks like fanart, everything is going to be cheap cardboard, the artcards are alright and the collectible ring will be alright. Only decent thing is the interior artwork. Shame. The steelbooks are absolutley beautiful and, even better, the set that Travis de Valle mentioned above is definitely the best looking set.

    Do we know if the extended versions for each film will still be over multiple discs? It looks like it from the number of discs per film, which is surely unnecessary and a bit disappointing, for me anyways.

    I just bought the steelbook collection for each why would i pay for this? I haven’t been through them completely yet so i dont know if the cast reunion is in there. but you meth eaters want me to spend 275 bucks 300 with shipping for a reunion, a necklace, and some art cards??? Shit for 300 bucks somebody from the cast better take me out to dinner, vacuum my house, give ME a happy ending, read me a bedtime story, then tuck me in. whoever thought this was a good idea needs to be moved back to cleaning toilets.

      Its certainly the one downside of the new 4K releases, only having the films and none of the behind the scenes stuff.
      Really enjoyed going through the mountain of making of footage from the extended trilogy box-sets.

    No appedicies so no point. Not really all that ultimate if you ask me. But I still want it.

    It is a shame that as we go onto 4K, we are seeing few extra features now. If its a 4K rerelease with a blu-ray copy included, your fine, but 4K only releases seem very barebones in that regard.
    Would have thought they might have pushed for this to just be the movies on 4K, and then the behind-the scenes footage on blu-ray.
