    From Sony's blog (does Sony post drunken party picks of itself too?):
    http://www.sonypictures.com/homevideo/columbiaclassics/blog/2009/08/icons-and-icons.html

    I'm up for it, what the hell.

    Haven't seen any of these, but more Hammer is always welcome.

    I'm about a decade past the point where I was a Hammer completist, but this is nice. :)

    I've not seen or heard of any of these, but I've not been disappointed with any of the Icons sets. I can't wait for this!

    I'm a completest newbie so this will be a welcome addition to my collection. But damn does it ever require some patience when acquiring Hammer titles on R1 DVD!

    When this set comes out it should just about fill up the two shelves devoted to my collection of Hammer DVD's. Also includes a couple of VHS's. The only DVD's I'm missing are the Quatermass films.

    I'm hearing April 6th but I can't find any ironclad confirmation.

    i dig the icons series, really do. but its frustrating sometimes. i mean if they could pull off such a fantastic collection of supplements for the icons of adventure collection, why do all the others (which usually have films i'm more interested in) get no frills treatment? oh well. whatever the case, i hope they keep releasing them.

    oh...i forgot about the toho sci-fi set. that had some nice supplements as well, from what i've read. maybe they're going to make a habit of it going forward?

    Sony has a poll up on their Columbia Classics page. It's under "In Production" on the main page. Kinda hard to spot as there's no graphics, you have to click links to see each cover. I like the phone one because of it's use of colors, but feel the knife one is probably the best design overall.

    Here's the press release:
    I'm looking forward most to Cushing's outings, so to hear Cash on Demand has 11 more minutes of him is superb.

    personally the noose art appealed to me the most, although apparently im in the minority. the knife and phone arts appear to be neck and neck.

    I also like that one the best. It's a pity that the most of run-of-the-mill boring cover is in the lead. How typical.
