Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah DVD found - legit or not?

So I found these guys selling imports of GMK - Giant Monsters All Out Attack! <small>URL deleted</small>

I was wondering if anyone had heard if this was a legitimate release? DVD, right? Not a VCD?

The region 0 Hong Kong releases always sends up a red flag in these matters - and yet I hold out hope, because there was a R0 HK release of Godzilla X Megaguirus that was - much to my surprise - a legit copy.

Thoughts?

The consensus seems to be that this is "dodgy" so I've removed the URL in accordance with forum guidelines. [Benedict]

The non-removable English subs, coupled with the dubious covers, make me think these guys got a hold of a screener tape with English subs and used it to make DVDs. If this were legit, people would be all over it, because all sorts of places would have it.

Although I do have to admit that there are a LOT of extras for a bootleg - if thats what this is. In my experiance, I've found that boots usualy only have the movie, some kind of basic front end menu, chapters and that's about it. To include trailers, TV spots and makings of (plus "a whole lot more") seems a bit above and beyond for a boot.

You haven't seen many bootlegs then.

DVD-R 2.0 Format

Thats a monolithic clue that it is a bootleg. Not a single licensed distributor on the planet sells their product on DVD-R's.

I didn't even see the DVD-R listing. That would certainly clinch it. Does anyone know if an HK release for GMK is planned? I have the Japanese 3 disc set, but wouldn't mind a cheap version with subs if it becomes available.
