It's a Gold Box deal right now, so it's still $18.99, just click the link that says Gold Box over on the right of the page, or go to the general Amazon Gold Box section.

I'm tempted, but is it true that Part I doesn't have lossless audio?

I gladly bought these almost two years ago for about $30, IT was a deal then, it's a real good deal now.

Checked that I got this for $17.09 back in Dec. 08, but $18.49 is a heck of a deal. I suppose this set will be selling on the low end since a new Rambo set is on the way.

Ah here we go time for Amazon to dump these, pulled from High Def Digest:

Also in July, Lionsgate will release Rambo: The Complete Collection, a 4-film set that contains John Rambo’s entire epic journey together for the first time on Blu-ray. Pricing: Rambo: Complete Collection: $54.99
EDIT also being discussed in the Blu forum

Re: Don't blink, Rambo box on Amazon $18.99

The fact the new set is coming out is why this set is dropping in price (and I'd be surprised if it went back up in price... but Amazon is weird so you never know). I guess I don't have to feel too bad because I got #1 & #2 BDs for $3.99 each from Target (BF 2009) #3 for $7.99 from Amazon, and #4 used for $5.37 from HW Video, so with tax I probably paid about $23 for all 4. I wouldn't be surprised to see Lionsgate put on a bunch of special features to try to make the re-releases different than the current BD-25 releases, BUT experience has taught me that this studio is "uncool" when it comes to re-re-re-releases (just look at all the DVD releases of Dirty Dancing and Stargate), so in no way will I buy the new set for its new extras because I figure that they will re-release yet another set with different extras and after that yet another set with different extras. This makes them prime material for the dump bins in a couple years. So I'll be picking one of the new BD sets up when I see it well under $10 in a dump bin probably when they announce the 3rd or 4th BD double-dip.

I'm on to you Lionsgate! How does it go... fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Lionsgate won't be fooling me any more. Maybe things will change, but I use past history (of DVDs) to predict future events (for BDs) (in spite of what all those financial disclaimers say).

I picked one up yesterday. $6 a movie is a good deal.

Re: Don't blink, Rambo box on Amazon $18.99

I was able to cancel my order, surprisingly, since it had been like 12 hours.

I think I bought the DVD set three times due to new special features each time, I'm not falling for that anymore. Upconverted DVD will have to suffice.
