the new Monster Legacy DVDs:Will they have an edition with statues?

I was wondering if the new set of Monster Legacy will have an edition with busts of the monsters like they did with the Frankenstein/Dracula/Wolf Man set. I haven't seen anything posted yet, so I am guessing not.

BTW, I have done a search.

Nothing's been announced as of yet, so I doubt it. It's too bad, too, because a Mummy and Creature from the Black Lagoon bust would've been cool.

Drat! It would have been cool to go through the checkout line with both the Hellboy giftset bust and the monsters.

Oh well, maybe sideshow will do them eventually and offer a discount to those of us with all three.

I was hoping they would. the "creature" bust would have been sweet. I saw the other sets fly off the shelves at my local BB....didnt think they would, but they did. fingers crossed.

And if there were busts, they'd most likely be created from previously made figurines from Sideshow...I posted images of thier figurines of the mummy, the creature, and the invisible man on this thread:

So this could be a stupid question and/or already answered, but any idea why they're not doing this again when it seemed successful last time?

Because they'd get thousands of emails from people who can't find the Invisible Man bust.

The only reason I purchased the set last time was for the busts. I already had the original monster set, and didn't really care for the lesser films.

I was hoping they'd do it again, but seeing as how they're not, I'm not buying the new ones.

Is there a threepack of these releases together? I checked on amazon.com, but didn't see it, although I would think that they would be released together as a set as they were last time in addition to being released individually (too bad about the busts )

Universal won't be taking $60.00+ from my wallet this time. I already have the Mummy series, I'm perfectly happy with owning just the first Invisible Man film, so I'm only buying The Creature From The Black Lagoon Trilogy. Way to go Universal - I and many others would have gladly double dipped for a Gift Box Collection.

I'm surprised that nobody has really come up with the most sensible reason why they wouldn't be doing the box set again.... if you all remember there were a HUGE amount of complaints due to the fact that a LOT of people had loose and damaged discs in their box set! Six discs total, and a return could have been done for one lousy disc! It was a lot of money down the drain due to it I'm sure. This way if there's a problem with one particular set, they can return that set itself, and not a whole collection of all the monster movies that have been released at that time.

Only reason I picked up all three was because of the busts.

This time around I'll pick up Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Well, if they would've used keepcases instead of a bunch of lame-assed digipaks there wouldn't have a been a problem.

Come on... we're talking about Universal Studios here, the company notoriously known for not having any common sense at all.

Hmm, I absolutely loved the packing for the first three. The hardcover book-style digipacks are really classy.

i totally agree. i really dont get the hate of digipacks. i much prefer them to cases. i guess if youre constantly opening and closing the digipacks they will start getting weaker and fall apart but there are very few DVDs i watch that much over and over.
