Anyone plan on getting this pack? I plan on pre-ordering it the second it becomes available on Amazon. I’ve always enjoyed the Jurassic Park films, with The Lost World being my favorite of the bunch. I didn’t hate the third one as much as most people did, but it’s nowhere near the quality of the first two. I’m sure Universal Studios will take special care of these films since they were a trilogy that helped put them back on the map in the 90’s. They all made a decent amount of cash and with all the talk of another sequel/reboot on its way, it would only make sense for them to please the diehard fans with an awesome set so that they can come back and spend even more money on the next film!
