Very cool. I honestly don't know if I can bring myself to rebuy these yet again, but that ultimate box set is pretty sweet.

Excellent!!!

So it looks like we get 5.1 remasterings for all the old mono and 2.0 films, plus each film up to TWINE gets a 4K restoring from Lowry Digital.

Awesome.

I'm buying 'em. Glad I passed on this latest re-release.

Hope there'll be a choice in packaging. Although that cinematic film reel thing is cool. It won't fit well on the shelf, if you know what I mean, Vern.

I've seen that picture before. Looks very cool, but is that even R1? Not that different regions stop most people here...

I'm a huge Bond fan, but I will pass on these. Sony has acquired MGM so we should see these on Blueray soon after the format is released.

There are too many unbought titles on my wish list to even consider rebuying these. I'll live with what I have, which is quite good.

Will these new discs be released individualy? I would really like to get them all, but don't want that film real, or the box, although they are bad ass, I would rather have them on my shelf, with room to put any new bond films that come out.

I'll gladly double dip on these films. The currents discs have had a good run (some are the earliest discs I owned), and I'm looking forward to the Lowry transfers

Actually, I think that isa replica of a gun barel. I could be wrong though.

It is very cool. I think I will have to do a double dip.

I doubt we will get that case though. The US never gets the collectable cases.

Sah-weet!! I've only picked up one of the boxsets, so I guess I won't have too many qualms with buying a deluxe set . . . pending pricing information.

While the flip out thing looks cool, I don't know just how practical it really is . . . and I miss my covers!

I will definitely pass. The only way I would rebuy those films would be if each "Bond Babe" came with it

Very Cool. This is the reason I've not bought a single Bond movie yet. I do hope they get released in alternate packaging though. That deluxe packaging looks sweet, but I'd prefer to have keepcases, they're just more practical.

I have also been holding off for the new releases next year. I personally like the collection case.

Will these be released individually as well? I didn't buy the last 2 sets because I don't want them all.

I remember seeing these pictures months ago on this forum as potential packaging for the original discs. This article might not be entirely true.

The only way I can see re-buying the Bonds would be in Blu-Ray.
