    I'll wait for the inevitable individual releases. Not a fan of The Mummy or The Invisible Man. Here's to hoping that the Creature in 3D is not anaglyph 3D, and takes full advantage of 3D HDTVs.

    I really want this but $160? That seems way overpriced for 8-9 discs. Especially when i've got the 23 disc bond set coming in sept for only $25 more...

    $160 is the SRP. When it hits shelves, I'm sure most retailers will have it for much cheaper. If I had to guess, probably $100 - $120.

    This is the type of thing that seems ripe for Lightning Deals and what-not, so if you wait for it to go on sale, it'll probably be even cheaper than that.

    They can charge me whatever the hell they want to. Just tell me who to give the money to.

    I haven't watched my old legacy collections enough to justify an upgrade.

    I kind of wish these were individual releases, but fuck it. This is a must.

    Artwork is kind of mediocre....shame as I really loved the 75th Anniversary cases.

    Looks like its gonna be another "book" style release. Fine by me, I like them quite a bit. I know a few people hate them with a passion, though. Kind of looks like the wave of the future.

    I don't like book-packaging, only because I'm worried it will scratch the discs. Yes, I know that blu-rays are "scratch resistant", but that doesn't mean they can't be scratched.

    Won't keep me from buying it, though.

    I've heard it's not anaglyph and you will need a 3D TV to watch it.

    Lol. How funny is it that this is the first movie that would make me run out and buy a 3D TV. I really want this set. Between this, Indiana Jones, Bond 50 and Hitchcock, I'm going to need a bank loan.

    Awesome.

    I'm surprised that Creature From the Black Lagoon 3D was part of the boxset I was expecting that to be stand alone. I'm also disappointed to read that the silent Phantom and Hunchback were not included. Indications were that they would be and I'm hoping they still get released but the boxset seemed the most likely place to do it so I don't hold out much hope.

    I have reason to believe that the best elements on the silent titles do not reside with Universal. That, combined with the fact that the films are in the public domain, I think explains their lack of interest. I'm pretty sure someone else is supposed to be releasing a kick-ass Blu-ray of the original PHANTOM soon.

    Didn't Image put out a disc that was pretty favorably reviewed of the original PHANTOM OF THE OPERA?
