    Depends on what you mean. There was a general release boxed set that
    included all three films. There was also a Best Buy exclusive set
    that had all three films, with the original KK in a "collectible tin".
    From Doug's description, tt sounds like this latter is getting a wider,
    non-exclusive release.
