    Has anyone seen the new Image release of season one of COMBAT and if so, how's the quality? Any better than the previous releases?

    I haven't seen the discs but I just assumed that it was the same discs in one package.

    ^ Same here. If anyone has bought the recent individual releases, let us know. I'm 99% that they're the same Image transfers from the previous releases.

    i believe thay are the same time compressed episodes from before. season 5 was the only season that did not suffer from time compression.

    It may take a while to get the info on the reissue releases since a lot of collectors had bought the original volumn releases or the box set.
    True. Although most of S1-4 are TC'ed, the good part is they're not (scene) edited.

    There are a few S1-4 episodes that escaped TC.

    I hoped for a remastered release using the original elements but glad to get the complete series on DVD years ago.

    I'm considering buying all 5 seasons as a blind buy (either the complete season sets currently being issued by Image or the complete series set). It's really just a matter of getting the right price.

    Hope you get a good price soon. That complete set is historically pricey, usually averaging around $160 at Amazon although I've seen it as low as $101 in the past.

    The price doesn't drop often though.

    I looked at a couple of Amazon reviews so take this for what it's worth. Someone posted this about the recent S1 re-release:
    To clarify, the TC'ed Image releases are the complete episodes (scenes).

    That was interesting when a friend mentioned that TSoD had posted that yesterday.

    Even though it appears to be re-released from another studio besides Image, I don't see anything in the news post that indicates new transfers or remastering.
