Firstly and most importantly, the DVDs are identical to the Region 2 box set released by Fabulous Films, complete with original music, the three documentaries and all the extras. No need to fix something that was already fantastic.
However, a nice touch is that the three seasons come in an actual metal box (it's 20.5cm x 14cm x 4cm or 8" x 5.5" x 1.6"), just how it should be. They obviously listened to the fan feedback from the Region 1 and 2 releases.
The only differences are that the booklets do not have as many photos as the Region 2 releases, and the DVD covers are different:
The individual season sets have been on sale since 1 March 2014.
Overall, it's slightly more than the Region 2 box set but it's a great collectible box set for Aussie fans.
