    I'm thinking a nice white would be good. If not white maybe grey, but white would be better. Any other ideas?

    of course it will be blue...that's the "color" of ROTK...just like FOTR was green and TTT was reddish/brownish

    Blue breifly entered my thoughts while I made the post but then I thought it would clash with the earth tones of the previous editions. Now giving it more thought it could work - if the got the tone right.

    I still stand by my white though...

    I should have made this a poll, oh well.

    I believe that blue would look best, a darker bluse of course.

    If you notice, with each movie, the merchandise boxes all have a specific color that's continued on in the movie boxes. All the Fellowship items were in green, then the movie was in a dark green box. All the Two Towers stuff was in red, and then the movie had a dark red box. All the Return of the King stuff has been blue *looks fondly on the box Anduril arrived in*, so naturally you can assume the box of the movie will be dark blue.

    I'd like to know what the theme of the boxed set will be (like the Rohan theme for Two Towers). Probably Gondorian designs, which would be really cool!

    I guess the box will be blue... and I'm pretty sure that the theme will be Gondorian, with the emblem of Gondor on the back of the box.

    that's along the lines i was thinking. Minis Tirith emanates white, the White Tree. Overall light wins over dark.

    Wouldn't mind seing a black Mordor Edition =) I got the Mordor book mark when I bought the LOTR book trilogy and that thing is bad-ass!

    Eh, things change all the time and it's a long ways before the EE comes out :\

    *I can't believe I referred to a book mark as "bad-ass".

    Blue like the UC sword boxes for ROTK. It has always been that way.

    TFOTR regular DVD and EE were both dark green. EE had Elf design.
    TTT regular DVD and EE were both dark red. EE had Rohan design.
    TROTK regular DVD and EE as I understand will "officially" be blue(dark, I guess). I would also expect a Gondor design, but we'll see- could be hobbit, or less likely dwarf or "evil" motifs.
    But once these are all available, what about a boxed set? What color would the main box be? White? Black? Gold/yellow/tan-ish? What do you think?
    curunir's bane- Do you have an article with the official report? I tried seaching the web, but "blue" isnt a very good search word.

    I have the limited edition cd soundtracks and I guess they goofed up with those on the coloring:

    FOTR = red leatherette
    TTT = blue leatherette
    ROTK = green leatherette
