Thatís probably it. Thank you for the pointer. Reviewed some of them from memory and EHB still has them in stock

Hamilton has too much stuff I want. Made another order, and normally I order every 6 months. Couldn't resist some of those titles.

Re: Hamilton Book (Blu-ray Bargains)

Got my shipment, which averaged $3.79 per movie. I can see a fan being happy with the ShawScope set at $110 or $120 (Not sure what MSRP was, but 60 was a steal.

I think they went wrong with the costly packaging though (I'm not a display my collection person). The 'scope' sized box and 'book' housing the discs just seem too expensive for what they bring to the table, including getting the disks out of their thick hardboard page slots without scratching them.

Thanks for the package description! I was considering the ShawScope set but was kind of on the fence. That price tag made it look quite attractive - and the packaging just about kills it for me (I enjoy them but my DVDs are generally decent/good enough, especially if the BR packaging is sub-par). I detest those books w/sleeves built in and couldn't care less about "display" type packaging (I buy to watch, not display, and want the smallest shelf profile possible).

Does Arrow still do the 'standard' slipcase versions of their more elaborate boxed sets? I'm mainly thinking of those gigantic Herschel Gordon Lewis and Gamera doorstoppers, both reissued in simple slipcases with maybe four regular Blu-ray cases inside. They did this for the William Grefe and Bill Rebane sets, too, plus both American Horror Project sets, Daimajin, Yokai Monsters and probably others I'm forgetting.

The Shaw sets seem to be comparatively slow sellers (admittedly, I don't know if they over-produced these boxes compared to the others I mentioned), so I wonder if their plan to release at least four of these boxes in total means they can't put out the 'standard' editions for the first two without impacting sales of Volumes 3 and 4. All of those other boxes (except maybe American Horror Project) were one-offs, and the FOMO made the deluxe versions sell out reasonably fast. That doesn't seem to be the case with the Shaw sets, as much as I love them personally. And I do think Arrow will release standard boxes eventually, but that could be years away now.

This is me. Once the "collection" got too big and unwieldy, I preferred 'out of sight, out of mind.' so reasonably well-organized, apartment-friendly, easily-transported, latch-top storage totes became my friends. Oddball boxes like the Shaw sets can throw a wrench in the works, but I get by. I cringe a bit when "unboxing" or "review" videos pop up in my YouTube feed with yet another middle-aged goateed white dude sitting in a room with walls covered floor to ceiling with DVDs and Blu-rays. It's just visual overkill, not to mention the time wasted making videos that could be better spent actually watching all that shit!.

I think the ShawScope boxes are awesome. They aren't cumbersome to handle like some other sets and actually look attractive.

Per Goldenwheels on br.com. If the Arrow's from March's drop are all sold out, there won't be any restocking of those items (as of this moment). Also the April "drop" features more Arrow titles, although they aren't as good quality wise (paraphrasing from what Goldenwheels said).

and yet ... this motivates me to take an unneeded second look ...
