I am so tempted for the Godzilla set but I like my apartment ( also I've never watched a Godzilla film, thats properbly why I'm not buying).
The Leon boxset thats mentioned is a 2 disc set, there is a 2 disc set already out by spectrum, is this another one thats being released by another company?
Because the new one mentioned looks better, I'm a whore for that sort of packaging.
