You know what your Blu-ray shelf is lacking? A scowling ape’s head. I feel pretty confident in declaring that, but if I’m wrong, then I congratulate you for being ahead of the scowling-ape-head curve. As for the rest of us, we’ll be able to remedy our scowling-ape-head deficit with the rather snazzy Caesar’s Warrior Collection Blu-ray set, which packs all sorts of goodies into a replica of Caesar’s intimidating mug. It’s available for pre-order this week both at Comic-Con and online, so now you folks in the midst of the San Diego chaos have a good reason to swing by the Fox Booth (#4229).
The Caesar’s Warrior Collection is a four-disc set that will include Blu-ray 3-D, Blu-ray, and Digital HD versions of both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as well as “hours of special features.” The Warrior Collection also includes four collectible character cards and a 32-page “Planet of the Apes: Building an Icon” booklet that looks at WETA’s creation of the Caesar replica. The set lists for $129, but you can pre-order it now at Fox’s Comic-Con booth or via FoxConnect for only $99. There’s no official release date yet, but the set will apparently be arriving in time for the holiday season.
