I suggest you should do the same.
I'd really be amazed if they even acknowledge the issue...let alone do a replacement.

For those who are interested, here's a review that mentions the replacement thunder effects on the 5.1 track of the 1999 THX DVD:

I'll definitely pick this up eventually, for the commentary and new transfer, but will probably hold onto my Blu as well as the my old 2-disc Anchor Bay DVD with the television cut. I hate that I am going to buy this for the sixth time, but oh well.

Only my second time buying the film. I have the old 2 disc DVD which I will always hold onto because it is awesome and has the TV cut and I didn't buy the first Blu-Ray because of all the bullshit. This seems to be the transfer it deserves!

Update! It looks like the Mono mix on the 35th AE IS the original Mono mix after all!:

Best Buy had two copies of Halloween 35th Anniversary blu-ray. I'm looking forward to seeing how it's packaged in the UK steelbook edition as the US release does not have a disc tray but rather a sleeve that will scratch the disc.

All of the "facts" that have been presented in that blu-ray.com thread should be taken with a heavy grain of salt. The guy that concluded the mono mix on the latest Blu-Ray was in fact the original theatrical mono mix later admitted that he came to that conclusion after downloading and watching a rip of a 1982, German-dubbed VHS. He also determined that the color timing of the 35th Anniversary Edition was "accurate" based on the following screencapture from said VHS.

I'm still gonna wait for the dust to settle on this debate, as I've heard every possible fucking thing about this is the original Mix. Now some say the old DVD isn't original, the first blu isn't, nor is the laserdisc or even pre-1985 VHS copies! It's a fucking joke is what it is with all the information and mis-information out there. I can't even check intop that blu-ray dot com thread anymore as it's just become a bitchfest mixed with memory competition.

Yeah, the blu-ray.com board is a fucking joke. It's like a classroom full of second graders. Anyway, does anyone here know which, if any, home video release(s) unquestionably contain the original mono mix? I have literally every US release on home video dating back to the Media VHS, so other than comparing the new blu-ray's mono mix to the original 35mm print, is there any other definitive source to compare it to?
