2009 Snow White Home Video - Limited Edition Diamond Collector Set

The Limited Edition Diamond Collector Set was the ultimate in 2009's Snow White home video selections. The "red box" with the gold embossed lettering contained:

A. The 3-disc set (2 Blu-Ray/1 DVD) in Blu-Ray packaging
B. A 160 page book by Jeff Kurtti
C. Eight lithograph reproductions of original character sketch drawings
D. An 8-piece dwarf pin set and case
E. Certificate of Authenticity

The Box:

Limited Edition Diamond Collector Box

The box has an elegant velvet touch exterior. However, the paperboard interior is far from plush and leaves a lot to be desired considering its high retail price. Removing the contents requires careful attention or tears (both meanings of the word) will result.

The Book:

Walt Disney Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the same title offered in the 2009 Collector Book Set except the dimensions are larger (approx. 9.25" x 11.25") and the monogram cover design is unique to this package. The ISBN is also different: 978-1-4231-3068-0.

This Limited Edition Diamond Collector Set (only 21,300 made) was originally listed at $250.00 (US), but at the time of this writing, Disney.com is offering it for $189.99, Amazon.com for $150.00 and numerous re-sellers for as low as $118.95...that's mint and sealed in the box with the official "Buena Vista" stamp. Occasionally an opened set will appear in the online auctions and will sell for substantially less.

Factory-sealed with Buena Vista stamp. This one stays in the shrink-wrap!

  1. Wow - have never seen that before! That truly is a collector's piece - beautiful! Although I would be just as annoyed/upset as you with the inside cardboard tearing :(.
