I'll definitely order both... even though they are pricey of course.

The coverart looks great too:

Nice cover art! I too plan on getting both. I've never bought from Twilight Time before. Thought I read that they charge you in full up front. Not crazy about that, but I can deal with it.

What's up with their shipping? Do they fill customer orders at random or something? You think it would be the order in which they are received. Do they package their discs well?

Is there a good chance they will go OOP quickly like other Twilight Times?

No, they (Screen Archives) only charge you when the pre-orders actually ship. They'll authorize your card for the amount (like many places do) at the time of the order...but that will clear within a few days.

They seem to ship out orders in random sequence, and usually just ship stuff in bubble mailers.

Possibly, but I highly doubt these will sell out that quickly. These aren't really super popular films, and a lot of people probably just won't want to lay out 30+ for each film.

Goddamn it. I'm a fan of the Harryhausen classics, but I fucking hate Twilight Time with their overpriced, bare-bones, limited edition bullshit.

My guess is that it probably won't be barebones, and they'll probably include the old DVD special features. Their Sony licensed titles generally do; like Christine, Body Double, and The Blue Lagoon. I wouldn't expect any new features though.

I grew up on the Sinbad films, so buying these is a no brainer. It does suck that they will be at a premium price, but I want these.

My sentiments exactly.

Took the plunge and bought both. Wonder how long it will take for these to sell out?

I pre-ordered both too, almost forgot today was the day!

I really doubt either of these will sell out too fast though. I would imagine both will be around after the release date, probably well into early 2014.

I had a 10% off coupon for Screen Archives, but it expired last week...damnit! I did order a couple of Soundtrack CD's with it at least.

Pre-ordered as well. I grew up watching the Sinbad (Harryhausen) films, so these hold a special place in my heart. The replay value is high on these for me, so worth the steep price.

I'm dreading the day that Twilight Time gets the rights to something that I consider a must have, because I cannot stand their ethics. Fortunately there is only a handful of movies that I consider to be must haves so the liklihood of that happening it minute.
