"This collection is at least on par with other Battlestar Galactica season releases. The additional collectibles are a must have for any collector of the series. However I caution anyone purchasing this set from Amazon to be cautious of the pricing. This gift set is currently being sold by another company (I won't say who, but it's initials are BB;)) in their store with no shipping charges for only $39.99. That being said, take a look around locally before ordering this set online. If you can't find it in any local stores (and of course have the available cash) go ahead and purchase this item. It truly is a must have."

"As I Have Found There Are Legions Of Fans For The New Incarnation Of The Sci-Fi Classic "Battlestar Galactica".
And The Show From The Sci-Fi Channel Is Well Worth The Accolades And Praises That Have Been Bestowed Upon It.
I Happened To Purchase The Unrated Made For TV Movie "Battlestar Galactica Razor" And Was Hooked From That Point On.
I Went And Made The Purchases Of The First Three Seasons(Including The Divided Second Season(Season 2.0 and Season 2.5).
After Watching The Original Mini-Series Movie That Launched The New Series I Knew I Had Found A TV Show That Had Me Hook,Line,And Sinker.
So,After Watching The First Three Seasons(Twice)Along With The Movie "Razor" Several Times I Longed And Waited For The Fourth Season To Make The Transfer To DVD.
Well I Found This Season Has Also been Divided Into Two Parts(Season 4.0 And Season 4.5)But That Is More Then Fine If It Gets Part Of The Fourth Season Available For Purchase Earlier Then Waiting For Every Fourth Season Episode To Air(Which Finally happened Just A Couple Of Weeks Ago).
I Received Season 4.0(The Limited Edition)On Its Release Date And Was Happier Then A 10 Year Old On Christmas Day.
I Found The Movie "Razor" Was Included With The Set,But I Am Fine With That As I Intend To Purchase The Series Launching Mini-Series(Movie)To Own Seperately(Even Though It Is Included In The Season One Box Set).
But Back To The Season 4.0 Limited Box Set.The Addition Of The Kara Thrace "Starbuck" Colonial Dog Tags(Made By QuantaMechanix)Is Simply Awesome.
There Is A Set Of Dog Tags Made For Most of The Shows Main Charecters That Sale For $29.95 Each.
Starbuck's Set Is Sold Out And May Add Value To This Set In The Very Near Future.
They Are Not Some Pieces Of Plastic That Look As If They Cost $5.00 At Your Local Discount Store's Toy Section.
Add A Spectacular Book That Gives A Description Of Many Of Battlestar's Main Players,And You Have A Tremendous Set,That Sets Itself Apart From Any Of The Other Season Box Sets By This Spectacular Limited Edition.
Is The Limited Edition Worth The Extra Funds,Thats Up To You.For A Tried And True Battlestar Galactica Fanatic(Who Likes Both The Movies Included In The Season Box Sets And The Movies In Their Seperate Forms And Editions)There Was NO Question,The Limited Edition Of Season 4.0 Is Worth Every Single Cent It Cost."
