The usual annual thread hasn't appeared strangely, but Play.com have posted up the individual releases for Stargate Atlantis' Fifth Season;

Season 5 - Volume 1
11/05/2009

Season 5 - Volume 2
25/05/2009

Season 5 - Volume 3
08/06/2009

Season 5 - Volume 4
22/06/2009

Season 5 - Volume 5
13/07/2009

Leaves them a bit later into the year but still. They don't have a date for the complete Season 5 yet but if it's like last year, it will probably be the same as Volume 5

Well their release a few weeks before this year in comparison to season 4 last year (dics 5 came out on the 28/7/08). Usually the complete season is either released on the same day or the mondy after the final disc.

I've got the complete sets of the other 4 so I think I'll wait until they release the boxset and get it all in 1 go :)

You and me both. I would've thought it would either come out on the same day as the complete boxset, or at the least a month later. Actually, although it is a long wait (forcing me to watch all ten series of SG1, instead of in conjunction with Atlantis), it is beneficial for me because it should come out pretty much exactly on my birthday. Know what I'm asking for!

Dont they usully release it in conjunction with the New season of said show or new show of the same franchise?

Stargate Atlantis: The Complete Series 5 released on 11/05/2009 according to play.com, which strangely is the same date as the vol 1?? likely an error

Play.com often get release dates wrong. Sometimes, even epicly wrong.

July for the entire boxset? Man. I either delete Atlantis season 5 from my sky box, or lost. Talk about a tough call. This always annoys me, now anytime I rewatch all of atlantis, I cant include season 5 in the rewatch.

Play have removed the 11th July release date now (no shock there).

Based on the relesae dates for the individual volumes, id guess that the complete box set will be out either on the 13/07 (same day as vol 5) or 20/07 which is the following monday.

Play.com is now listing the complete boxset for release on 10/08/2009. If correct that's about a month after the release of vol 5. Its possible that the date is wrong, as Play have been wrong previously, plus i haven't found the date listed any where else.

It would be *nice* to have a proper officially announced release date, but, oh, I forgot... the UK doesn't exist, right? :mckay: :(

Of course not! Nothing outside the US exists. We're all just figments of our own imaginations! :eek:

Will be keeping an eye on this thread.

I read on Ebay and Amazon when I searched for season 5 of Atlantis both sites had a presale and it said on BOTH sites that it was to be released in June or July, Its one of those months the dates are for the US region as far as I know, I dont know about the date on other parts of the world

The price is ridiculous for S5... I'm going to wait to order it until it comes down. Call me a scrooge but why pay 10 or 15 quid more, for the sake of waiting an extra month or so? :lol:

Season 5 box will have the most extras what they have ever released, so it is worth for waiting! :D

There is no chance that they will ever release it in Hungarian... Even the home made DVDs are better, because they put the Hungarian synch next to the original DVD materials, but I wanted to own SG legally. So this is the reason why I will buy it. ;)

OK, this is beyond weird! Yesterday I went to look at a Swedish online shop, to see if I could pre-order SGA season 5 from them. But I found out that it was already availiable! I sent a mail to get it confirmed that it was actually region 2, the box, and the man who answered said that it had been available in Sweden since July 1st!!! :eek: Needless to say, I will order it immediately! I should be getting my copy on Wednesday, will let you know. I still suspect there's something wrong...

It might not be.. I once got a version of SGA S3 from a dutch site which was relased earlier than in the UK. It was and is perfectly fine.
I can't hardly wait for my DVDs either. *sigh*

Tinah
August 3rd, 2009, 05:33 AM
But over a month earlier? When was it released in region 1? He might have mistyped, and meant to say August 1st. But anyway, it's supposed to be there now. Can't wait..!

One more week to go! YAY!

I preordered mine in HMV today. I like wandering around in shops in town so I keep them going by trying to avoid online buying as much as possible :D

My set was shipped early this afternoon, so looks like ill be getting my set by the weekend rather than Monday.

I got my box today, so it's confirmed that the Swedish season 5 box has been available since at least August 1st.

Oh, quick question about your set:
If you bought the fatpack(the inch-thick case), did it come with a cardboard slip-cover?

Tinah
August 6th, 2009, 04:23 AM
I don't understand the terms you're referring to, but the box is about an inch ( 2.5 centimetres ) thick and is made out of plastic, with the cover being "normal paper" slipped into the plastic "pocket" that's on the outside of the box. Messy explanation, sorry! ;) This is the Swedish version though, and I have no idea if the UK, German, etc. versions are like that too.

Raven6666
August 6th, 2009, 06:52 AM
I understood that explanation fairly well, but looks like they did the change just for this last season.
Enjoy watching yours! (I have yet to open mine, still trying to find out if there's the set which comes in the plastic case, but also another cardboard one on the outside)

Tinah
August 6th, 2009, 07:20 AM
Actually, all of my seasons of SGA are like that... And they're all the Swedish version with Swedish text on the cover. My SG-1 seasons, however, are five DVDs in a plastic... little box thingie... each, and those five boxes are, in turn, in a cardboard box. ( Takes up lots more space on my shelf, sadly, but that's too late to change now! )

Madwelshboy
August 6th, 2009, 07:45 AM
My set came today from HMV, 4 days ahead of release. It looks exactly how Tinah described, expect it has English rather than Swedish text

sabbon

Mine came this morning.

To give a more detailed description:

The set is contained in a paper card box, it feels rather flimsy, but I am sure it will do the job just fine.

The 5 series are presented in sets similar to those in the latest Region 2 complete SG1 set, which is good, as it doesnt take up too much room. As a bonus, each set's spine has the sets design on it, so when placed in order, you get a picture of atlantis with the gate and the orange event horizon. Actual art for each set remians the same as the individual releases. Each set also has the original series booklets, which I love, consider the SG1 set didn't have them.

There is a descritpion of the series on the bottom of the box, and we also have a bonus disc, like the SG1 set, which includes 2 documentaries:

Mission 100: Atlantis Reaches a Milestone Featurette

and

Stargate Atlantis: A Retrospective Featurette

All in all, it looks fantastic, and seeing as it has all Atlantis eps, Im sure it is!

:weiranime42: I'm hugging my boxset tightly now... I think that maybe I'm supposed to open it... Perhaps put the discs into something that can convert them into images and sound? :P It has a nice sticker on the cardboard slipcase promising a 'thrilling final season' :D
