First they had the Alien head thingy for their Alien Quadrilogy, now this (from Fox too)?!

That's probably because Japanese are used to paying top dollars for a DVD, and they also are used to paying for packaging anyway.

Btw, it looks like the rest of the world is getting a 2-disc treatment for I, Robot. We in R1 get shafted by a 1-disc release instead.

I just ordered a region free player this week just for this reason. I'm tired of getting the shaft on these releases. I, Robot was the main reason for the push. There is like 3 hours of bonus materials NOT on the Region 1 disc. BTW, it is also already released overseas whereas here it doesn't come out for a couple more weeks.

On the Sonny head:
Important info not mentioned in first post:

Price: around $180 :eek:

It is already sold out.

This really belongs in the International forum, but since it seems it's already been mentioned there...
