How is the an ultimate edition if NO EXTENDED version?!?

"Like many of you who purchased the first two ultimate editions at a pretty penny, i was expecting extended editions of movies 3 and 4. What a disappointment! Were the big wigs at WB thinking that their fans would triple dip editions when they bring out all films in one super ultimate collection? I already owned all of the HP on Blu, but sold them when i started buying the Ultimate editions. I will NOT be purchasing 3 and 4. Very poor on WB's part to say its ultimate, and include 8 hours of bonus materials, but not the few extra scenes that regularly show on TV. Very poor indeed."
Same film. Bigger box.

"No extended cut? Sorry, not interested. I don't need a dressed up version of the same film I already own, I don't care how nice the box is. Yes, the documentaries are good, but not enough to make me double-dip for the exact same films. What's frustrating as a consumer is that I did get the first two Ultimate Editions, and was looking forward to completing the collection of extended cuts. I know, I know... The studio gave the directors a chance to re-edit their films, and both directors felt the film that exists was the best cut, ergo no extended cuts are necessary. Nobody bothered to ask what the FANS actually want. Crazy thought... All I have to say is, they better not screw up the Order of the Phoenix Ultimate Edition. Everyone KNOWS that film had a full HOUR of stuff cut, footage that had been COMPLETED with effects and everything. So, you've got no excuses, WB! You can still release GREAT editions of Phoenix, Half-Blood, and Hallows, even if you have messed up these two Ultimate Editions...can these sets even be CALLED "Ultimate" when they are exactly the same films sitting in my living room?"
