What are your (Unreleased) Dream Box Sets?

Here's mine:

Lee Marvin Action Pack
Point Blank, Prime Cut, Emperor of the North, Monte Walsh

Randolph Scott/Budd Boetticher Collection
Seven Men From Now, The Tall T, Comanche Station, Ride Lonesome, Decision at Sundown, Buchanan Rides Alone, Westbound

Warners Gangster Collection
White Heat, The Roaring Twenties, Little Caesar, Public Enemy, Angles With Dirty Faces

Sam Fuller's Big Bloody Box
Merrill's Marauders, Steel Helmet, Park Row, Forty Guns, Verboten!, White Dog

This would take a nice bite out of my impatiently-waiting-for-DVD list.

Miami Vice but if they ever release that, they would do it season by season.

A Warner Gangster Set with the films you mention would be great.

David Lynch and Mark Frost's On The Air series (only 7 eps., perfect for a single release).

The Addams Family, which would probably be season-by-season, but that's okay.

Max Headroom

...and I'm hoping the Donnie Darko director's cut comes out in a special edition that includes the original version of the film as well... if they don't do it know, you know Criterion will do it later.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? box. Either US or British version, I'm not picky.

And as an anime nerd, Space Cruiser Yamato season boxes. Subtitled and remastered please.

Star Wars O-OT, but visually cleaned up w/o additions. Also would have ports of the LD documentaries as well as deleted scenes.

The Warner gangster set is actually coming out as the James Cagney Signature Collection. I think it will include:

The Public Enemy
White Heat
Angels with Dirty Faces
The Roaring Twenties

As for my personal dream boxset would be a Akira Kurosawa Early Films box set including:

The Most Beautiful
Sugata Sanshiro
Sugata Sanshiro 2
The Men Who Treads on the Tiger's Trail
Those Who Make Tomorrow
No Regrets for Our Youth

Of course, it would need to be capable of accommodating all future Bond films for me to consider it a "dream" set.

    I second this one along with the Bulldog Drummond serial and Kolchak series. The comics from Moonstone are keeping me busy on all three of these until then

    Also, China Beach which seems more like a pipe dream.

    Definitely NOT a "dream set", but a Phantasm set including all four movies would be of interest...

    All the Beneath the Crust DVDs were edited down segments (for the first two Pie flicks) of what was featured in the American Pie Revealed DVD in the American Wedding gifset.
