Sting Trilogy Box Set!!!!! Oh the Posssibilities

I know there have been Illusions to a Box set of all three movies on DVD containing some new materials and features. It was encouraging to see the Weapons and Warfare book because there were many pictures and photos in there that were never in any of the movies (Gil-Galad for example). What posssible features could we see in such a set??? (Please NO Tom B or Scouring suggestions) Lets stick to things that are within the realm of possiblity.

In FotR there's a glimpse of Gil-galad - he's skewering an Ork with his spear in the Prologue - Elendil is seen next I think.

I think they would probably include more shots of the slightly more obscure characters, perhaps in homage to the books.

I heard that PJ was not going to "punish" the fans that bought all the extended editions by making a super ultra mega platium, chrome plated, waste of money, edition. As great as a box set would be I really do not want to have to buy another version of the movie when I will have all three theatricals and all three extended editions.

I'm with Silmiel of Imladris, I love LOTR but I don't want to buy another version of the film! I hardly (if ever) watch the theatrial editions now that I have the Extended Versions - If I got a boxed set.... Though, I really do have to admit that I wouldn't mind it <B>SO</B> much if there were quite a few new scenes (I can picture my dad's reaction now...)

Since we already have the extended editions at home I will probably have to buy the box set from my own money (if it is different) Then I have my own version to take with me when I move out.

Let's save the boxed set for the 10th Anniversary. I haven't even watched the films with all the commentaries, yet.

Actually, I haven't gotten any of the DVDs yet because I'm waiting for the super-duper edition. Of course, I'll have to get a DVD player and a TV to go with it, but I'm willing.
