Vídeo no Youtube mostrando todos os detalhes dessa edição:

Por aqui:

O conteúdo dos filmes da franquia Alien pode ser encontrado na edição Alien Quadrilogia que ainda está disponível.

O conteúdo do filme AvP é idêntico à edição dupla lançada.

O conteúdo dos filmes da franquia Predador pode ser encontrado em edições duplas especiais.


Predador1 Predador2

Alienvspredador Quadrilogia

Estamos, portanto com outra variante de “mesmo conteúdo com apresentação pífia”, fora o caso de que a edição japonesa é boa por trazer todos os filmes das duas franquias mais o crossover em uma única edição de colecionador.

Vida Longa e Próspera
