Somebody on the Criterion forums has done a brief review. Sounds like MGM has finally done right by this film.

Good news about that transfer. If the picture does indeed lose the blue tint and retains the silver look, I'll buy it in a second.

Looks like I am double dipping. Maybe even considering selling my Criterion DVD.

Amazon.ca has the listing of the above as an import so I'm not sure if BB Canada or Future Shop will get this release.

Hopefully I'm wrong about this.

I think this is a comparison of the Lenticular Robocop, not the 20th anniversary.

I hope so too. If it is an import though, my guess is HMV in downtown Toronto will have it at least.

Hmmmmm cant decide. I love Robo, but have the trilogy set (even had the original snapper set also) but DTS would be nice. Hmmmmm

I doubt it will be an import. Amazon.ca has a listing (http://www.amazon.ca/Robocop-Paul-Ve...188427&sr=1-1), so I'd imagine it's just a matter of FutureShop/Best Buy not having their act together...

That's my review over at the Criterion Forum. The comparison at DVD Beaver is of the old R1, R2, R4 MGM editions and the Criterion. I refer to these images when talking about the 20th Anniversary transfer. Trust me, it looks great. Buy now! Just don't burn the fuckin' money you stupid, stupid assholes!

Gordon, thanks for the clarification. Looking forward to buying this set

When I get this next week I'll do a comparison between this and the Trilogy set. Nice to hear that this is finally being remastered!

Any idea with prices at the B&M's? I see the Best Buy thread does not list one.

Glad to see MGM finally came through with a decent release for Sgt. Murphy

Quick question - So if I sell off my Trilogy set and pick up the Steelbook + stand alone copy Robocop 2, I won't be losing anything?

I picked it up today at a Wal Mart. (Whitby, Ontario for $14.83 Canadian dollars)

A WEEK early, too. Glad to see that the Canadian bilingual garbage label is only an add-on paper label and not part of the steelbook case.


EDIT:

THEY ROYALLY SCREWED UP!

Both discs are EXACTLY THE SAME, even though they have different labels! Both are disc 1 of the set...Stupid canadian-made crap!

Wow that sounds like a major blooper. The Canadian version (without bilingual cover though) is shipping to me as we speak, I'll be hugely disappointed if they managed to do this error on every one of them.

Good question. Hell, I would love an early detailed review! Maybe over the weekend.
