Is there any chance of an Austin Powers boxset coming out? I was debating on if I should take advantage of the 2 for $15 deal at Best Buy... but since I waited this long to get them I can wait a little longer if there's a chance of a better version come out.

Very doubtful. The releases are packed as it is. I don't think we'll get better than as is.

The current releases look pretty good, don't think you can go wrong there. But with the pattern of DVD releases, it wouldn't suprise me if they released a 10 year SE later on.

Hell, I took advantage of that deal today JUST to get the green and red keepcases. I can finally get rid of my cardboard snapper ones. :D

Didnt Best Buy already have a 3 disc set for AP trilogy? I bought all three together in keepcases back when GM came out on DVD. But of course, I made a custom 3 disc keepcase for them.

I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I hate snappers.

Well all the same artwork, text and photos are there (YES there are inserts!)

The only difference I saw was the dates and the Dolby Digital logo on the AP2 disk. Also, the movie titless following an actor's name on the back has been updated. EXAMPLE: The snappers for the two read

Mike Myers (Wayne's World 1 & 2, So I Married an Axe Murderer)

Mike Meyers (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery)

Where as both keepcases read:

Mike Myers (Austin Powers 2 & 3) or (Austin Powers 1 & 3) (depending on which one you're reading).

Great movies but like others here I think theyre pretty well represented as stands and priced to sell. I can't see an BIG rerelease coming unless Myers does another AP movie, which I would much rather see than pap like Cat In The Hat. Early on I had heard he was intending to do seven AP movies, but as the third was being releasd he was making noises that the third was the last.

Just buy the existing three discs and a custom box from Paul Champagne. His Austin Powers design is pretty nice.
