The Dark Crystal: Anniversary Edition (4K and Bluray) --> 3.06.18

Anyone get either release? i guess 35 year anniversary...

i put it in for a bit and g-damn if it don't look the best i have ever seen. i haven't seen in a long time, but can't wait to again. $12.96 for Blu, $19.96 for 4K.

1 new extra as far as i can tell. don't know how long, but hope decent. can't wait to fully revisit. one of my childhood favs...

I'll eventually pick it up, but not in a hurry to at this time. I can see this title being $9.99 in a few months, or definitely for the holidays. I can wait until then.

I saw both of these at Wal Mart yesterday, don't remember the prices. Then I noticed that they had the previously released Blu-ray in the dump bin for $7.88.

The standard BD could even end up as part of those 2 for 1 sales at that price. That's how I picked up the previous version.

Picked up the 4k steelbook on Friday, I haven't cracked it open yet but I've heard good things so far.

Is the standard BD also the new transfer or the same as the previously available BD?

New transfer. Does look better than original. Just a matter of deciding to repurchases for 11min extra and the transfer
