The extended version of Fellowship of the Ring was announced well in advance, before the standard version was released, so they were clearly not trying to rip people off. And it does seem reasonable for them to release both, since the extended version is significantly different from the one seen in theatres. Now the superdeluxe version with bookends, _that_ was just trying to rip people off 8) Expect an extended DVD set for Two Towers and Return of the King too.As for the Terrahawks box, I very much doubt that the content will be different. Remastering a DVD is expensive, and they're most unlikely to do it without very good reason. The cover art is another matter, but you may well be able to get free replacement inserts for the cases from the manufacturors. Even the empty box might be available if you're lucky.
