Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I rarely buy Arrow releases so just wondering why is the pre-order price for Robocop so expensive? I thought Shout/Scream Factory releases were a lot. Amazon has both editions listed at $49.95. Iím guessing the price will drop before release but cripes.

That's most likely MSRP.

I'll wait until it hits $22-25.

Yeah, I figured itís MSRP but it still seems pretty high compared to other popular boutique labels like Shout/Scream or Criterion. Those are high with MSRPís that are usually around $35-$40.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I'm going with the UK version, it's like 20+ shipped -- I'm region free, so don't need to worry. I've pre-orded Robocop and a few other titles at 20+shipped prices.

Arrow's frequent release strategy for high-interest titles is to initially issue a Limited Edition with fancy packaging, a booklet, and physical swag such as art cards and a poster. (The SteelBook is also designated a limited edition.) A streamlined Special Edition in a normal keepcase and a lower price point will follow later.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

$49.95 is standard msrp for a 2 disc Criterion, so I don't find the pricing out of line.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

You almost never see a Criterion actually go up at that price though. Seems like on the high end for a two disc Criterion theyíll generally go up for pre-order around $35-$40.

I see it happen a good bit for pre-orders on Amazon from a variety of labels. The initial listing doesn't always have a discount attached.

Maybe I havenít paid enough attention I guess. I do see where the site that put up Robocop initially (Diabolik DVD) has it at $32.99 so I was just surprised Amazon wouldnít be closer.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Arrow Video is reportedly releasing True Romance on BD


No word if it's a UK only or both UK and US release.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I have the Warner Bros. R1 release of True Romance, which I found used & cheap.

If Arrow is doing a restoration on the film, I would gladly upgrade.
