The rest of it is identical to the Icon release.
Really disappointing set of extras as you say.

It leaves a bad taste in the mouth when you think about what Indicator would have done with a release like this!

Honestly, does Second Sight really think Hammer collectors will give up the Icon releases when they sport classic original Hammer poster artwork?

I think not...

I'll buy these IF they have reversible art,but I think we all know the answer to that!

Perfectly happy with the Icon releases of both of these. No intention of replacing them.

We'd have been on cloud 9 if they'd announced X-The Unknown or The Abominable Snowman. But no, they had to come up with identikit releases to the Icon ones but with worse artwork.

I'm actually pleased that The Mummy is being reissued. I don't own a copy and the Icon blu ray went OOP and sells for silly money nowadays. I will however, be waiting for a cheaper standard edition. I just want the disc not a slipbox, booklet and art cards.
