Lastly, France has an 'Angels & Demons Exclusive' with what appears to be a set of bookends. The price for this set is €44.95 and it will be available on October 6.
Just be warned, it's unknown if these titles will be region-locked or not, so keep this in mind before you pull the trigger on these cool collectibles.
Of Wanted Lists and Foreign Imports

Our own Ken Brown has been keeping busy with a series of articles on the state of Blu-ray. He's just posted a couple of stories relating to issues all too familiar to home theater enthusiasts: Wanted Lists and Import Titles.
Long time High-Def Digest readers are more than familiar with discussions along the lines of "When will 'such-and-such title' finally be out on Blu-ray?!!" Only to get a response that goes something like, "It's out in France, you can import it." In his latest piece for Sound & Vision, Ken explores both these subjects, first with his list of the 'The Ten Most Wanted Blu-ray Flicks,' and then with his examination of that most troubling example of failing to keep up with the home video Joneses: 'Five Reasons Foreign Home Video Kicks U.S. Butt.'
