Is this a Region Free release ? Bluray.com says Region B and Studio Canal rarely releases non Region B titles. If confirmed to be Region Free/Region A capable, am in one for this and won't touch any of the US releases

Completely unknown and unknowable probably for another 6 weeks at least.

Zavvi still lists it as Region Free, Amazon Region B -- both are normally less reliable than a Magic Eight Ball even for current releases much less a preorder.

SC releases of US Lionsgate have almost 100% been region locked so for those without Region Free capability I'd be extremely vigilant. of course putting a preorder in to lock in a price isn't going to hurt anything since you can alway cancel it later if needed

The AUS disc is a Sony/Universal item so maybe a bit better chance at Region Free, but since they hold local rights it's not guaranteed. The Region A Asian countries haven't announced their releases yet though I'd be shocked if there isn't one. I don't think they've had the theatrical release yet so it may be a while before those are available

The effects were never intended to be seen in HD, so Fox left them as originally created when they released Firefox on Blu-ray. There is no chance that Fox spent extra money for new special effects in this new edition.

Plus $3.70 shipping unless you pad the order to get above $25 making it $16.99. As bad as some Amazon packaging is, foxconnect can be worse. I've received more damaged stuff from them than Amazon.

Not sure if $25 if the normal minimum, but shipping was free at Fox Connect when I placed an order this morning.

Information isn't so much ambiguous as completely unavailable since the release in 8 weeks away.
Anything posted by Amazon, Zavvi, any website, Lionsgate, Studiocanal, etc should be taken as a guess since it's completely unreliable and unconfirmable

If Studiocanal say it's I'd give it a 50% confidence rate sicne they have told people ahead of time more than once something later proven to be false.
The next best guess at 1% above the level of a coin flip

I did some checking. That coupon gives you free shipping. Otherwise, there's a $25 minimum before free shipping kicks in.

Both true, but unlike most places the $25 is normally calculated based on pre-code levels when there is a discount code that doesn't add FS.

So true. That's been very welcome during several of their 50% off sales. Sure wish they'd do another one... still a few titles there I'd like to pickup at 50% 0ff...

Still waiting for them to repeat their X-Files sale.

That's an excellent price for a very good collection! I paid ~$39 for my copy when it came out and don't regret the purchase for a second! Aside from a couple of minor issues with aspect ratios, which I found very easy to overlook and likely wouldn't have noticed had I not known before hand, the transfers are very good to excellent.

Agreed, that is a great price on the Hammer Collection. If people don't support it, we may not get any more Hammers here in America.
