Harry Potter was re-issued over the last few years in some pretty amazing multi-disc high-priced “Ultimate Collection” sets, and the Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection brings them all together in one place, along with extended versions of the first two movies, and the 3D editions of the last two.
Even at its normally discounted price of $350, though, the set is a hard pill to swallow all at once. But today, Amazon is knocking another hundred off the price, bringing it down to a slightly more manageable $249.99.

How to locate difficult to find items:
1. There is a compartment located at the base of the lid. Open the flap to reveal Catalogue of Artefacts, Cloth Map of Hogwarts and the Blueprint Poster of Hogwarts Castle.
2. The small vertical compartments with checkered pattern and star can be opened by pushing in. These two compartments contain the Horcrux Locket and Ultraviolet Digital Copy codes.
3. The Bonus disc is located at the very back of the open box. There is a black ribbon in the middle of the checkered pattern that can be pulled. The back panel can be removed. Bonus disc is located on the backside of this panel.

It’s just a shame that we in the States didn’t get the super-spiffy Hogwart’s Castle Collector’s Edition released in Europe a few years back:
