    600 being produced...which means it'll still be around for years just like the infamous Puppet Master boxes.

    $250 per unit? Uh, no thanks Charles. I already have all of those films on Blu-ray ... and if you look at the link it shows Arena will just be (DVD). I mean, what's the point besides another money grab? o_O

    Why not at least put out some UNRELEASED Empire Blu-rays like Spellcaster and such?

    I also already have enough of his signatures on various things, and it wouldn't surprise me if the 24-page booklet is just all culled from the Empire of the 'B's book.

    It looks like it would actually be $10 - $20 cheaper to order all of those titles from Amazon.

    No shit huh o_O. I already own all of these on blu already and don't really like what Band did with Tourist Trap to warrant me buying anything from him again except the 88 films editions which have better encodes. Fuck you C.B. shove it up your arse :p

    I can't see the actual cases, but am I to assume these are the same as the Scream Factory releases? ie: Ghoulies 1&2 on the same disc etc?

    I assume so.

    Guess Troll 2 will be included as a "bonus movie" then? :p

    If they'd of maybe gone the route of including the original VHS art and house the movies in separate cases I'd of probably brought a set down the line when the price drops. If they're exactly the same.. there's really no point.

    I dunno about these "hushed tones" with which people supposedly speak of Empire Pictures. I might believe "sarcastic and slightly bemused tones".

    Nice of him to remind us about how successful Full Moon is...nothing like a little shameless plugging in the middle of your shameless cash grab.

    I'm also on the uneasy side about Troll falling into the same category.

    Huh... Did the 90 min cut of Tourist Trap come out per that ad? Their site doesn't seem to list it; only the 85 minute version (accurately listed now, I'll give them that much.)

    I still have some sizeable gift cards burning a hole in my pocket, but even still I'm holding off on this set. We'll see if it's still around come their next 50% off sale I may just bite. Not that it would be a great deal even then (considering I already own what I truly want) but I obtained these gift cards with little upfront cash so might as well make the most of them.

    No, it was a phony ad, lampooning Charles Band's ways.
