Looks like a nice release.All the earlier prints I've seen for this were a bit muted looking.

got a shipping notification, so I should have it sometime next week. I just picked up The Mummy's Shroud on BD and the Ultimate Hammer Collection R2 box a few weeks ago, with Blood from the Mummy's Tomb. When this one arrives, I may have myself a little Mummy theme night. or nights, more likely - 4 movies in one day just isn't in the cards anymore.
