Like others have said, I'm more interested in Martin to be honest.

£70 is a lot of money to drop, it might be three (versions of the) films and the licensing would have cost a fortune, but in all honesty I'm only ever going to watch the Theatrical Cut.

The Arrow Video Jodorowsky set is £20 less for more films and an equal amount of additional features (hardback book, multiple soundtrack albums).

Yeah, I know what you are saying.
I have started to think about Dawn Of The Dead myself.
I have the original novel, the Goblin soundtrack, most or all of the library cues in some form or another, multiple versions of the movies.
I watched some of the Koch Media Blu ray yesterday and it got me to thinking if I really need this set at £70. Plus there are so many other things I want, and have not got, and could get for that money. Aaarggh! Decisions, decisions.

Much as I would like all 3 cuts of Dawn on 4K UHD format, I really can't justify spending 80 quid on it. Should have just released the film in 4 disc sets from the outset imo. If licensing costs were gonna result in a higher than usual price, there was no need to make it considerably worse by also including other things such as cds and books. I already own the Goblin score on cd and I've personally never felt a great need to listen to the non-Goblin music outside of the film. And if I actually wanted the novelisation, I would have already bought it.

Also I have to say that charging 70 pounds for the standard 1080p set is an even worse deal. I'll cross my fingers and hope for a substantially cheaper standard edition in 2021. Maybe I'd feel differently if I didn't already own two blu-rays of the film (a US Anchor Bay theatrical cut bd and an Italian Argento cut bd - admittedly quite underwhelming releases). btw Considering the very high costs of these two sets, it's quite odd to read comments on Second Sight's Facebook posts and elsewhere, talking about what a great deal it is and how they expected it to be much more expensive.

Yeah, thatís why I missed out on Arrows Thing LE and Indicators Night of the Demon LE, Amazon couldnít deal with the demands because of scalpers so both my orders were cancelled!

Thankfully, Iím in a position to pay for this upfront today, so Iím not even gonna bother with Amazon or any of the others (unless I have to!)

Yeah me too.
I just hope after all this carry on that it isn't shitty digipak packaging inside the box!

Hence the reason I'm holding on to my MARTIN Japanese set just now.....

They said final specs will be released today, so maybe a mock up pack shot will be included
