My pre-order from OrbidDVD is on route and I should have it in my hands by this weekend.

From early reviews, it appears that the framing issue on part 3 was fixed. Arrow never acknowledged there was a mistake in the first place, but I guess since the discs come from new 4k scans, they took the opportunity to fix the framing.

I can't wait to dive in the set just in time for Halloween.

Would have been nice if they had included Red Sonja in that Conan set...

Sure, but it’s not affiliated and it was made and released by a different studio. Only thing it had in common was Dino Delaurentis production company. And it was considered a major flop back then.

The following reddit post sums up my feelings about this Conan release.

No one, not even you, will remember if we were good collectors or bad. Why we bought, or why we upgraded. All that matters is that we stood against streaming. That's what's important! HDR pleases you, Crom... so grant me one request. Grant me the 4K! And if you do not listen, then the HELL with you!

They mistakenly priced it as one of the individual releases.

I said fuck it and jumped on it for that price. If they honor it, then cool. If not, no biggie.

Thanks of the post!

What is Amazon smoking? Diabolik has it for $59.99. Arrow has it for $60.00 (was $55.00 until recently).

Amazon usually prices everything at MSRP when listings first go up. They’ll drop eventually.

It’s a sister site of Deep Discount, Movies Unlimited, and that whole bunch. Although I remember ordering from them more back in the day for…errrr, import CDs.

Hmm. I wonder if I should cancel my pre-order from Diabolik.

When they consolidated all those CD and DVD media sites under distributor DirectToU, they stopped honoring mistake prices if they happened to catch the error. Honestly, rushing to post a price mistake from any of their sister sites (ImportCDs, Deepdiscount, etc) is a surefire way to get the order canceled these days.

They usually slip through if only one or two people order at the wrong price.

I know nobody cares, but for those that did read what I wrote - I don't want it to affect them possibly purchasing it: I don't know if I ever cleared up my brief review here about the recent 4K release of American Werewolf in London, but in it I had said that the film didn't look that great compared to the blu-ray and I was dead wrong - wanted to just clear that up. The 4K version is outstanding....I just didn't spend much time viewing before my write-up.

I've heard labels are having difficulty with pressing facilities keeping up with the holiday rush. You would think they'd anticipate these problems but since physical media is on the wane, the few remaining manufacturing plants are overbooked.
