Geek Deal: 50% Off The King Kong Deluxe Extended Edition Gift Set

Amazon has the

for Peter Jackson's King Kong on sale for the next 24 hours in the Gold Box Deal of the Day for $39.99, 50% off the MSRP of $79.99. The King Kong: Deluxe Extended Limited Edition DVD gift set includes three discs packed with special features (listing after the jump) and "a beautifully crafted King Kong figurine, created exclusively for the package by the Oscar®-winning artists at Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, the company responsible for the film's creature design, special makeups, miniatures and dazzling visual effects." I already bought the non-gift set version of the Extended DVD set when it was originally released or else I'd probably pick this up.
