    Figuring in Amazon's usual discount, I wouldn't be surprised if you could get it for under $90. Even at SRP it comes out to ~$15 per movie.

    Very good news.

    I already have Spaceballs and Young Frankenstein, so I think I'll wait until the inevitable individual release of History of the World Part I.

    But always good to see more catalog on Blu-ray.

    Sounds good, but I'm disappointed that they're not including "The Producers".

    And would a box that fits in with other BDs kill them?

    I already have Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs. Hopefully, History of the World Part 1 will eventually get it's own release, as that is the only other film from this set I'm interested in.

    this set is a dupe of the previous dvd set, right?
    I'm sure the Producers
    will get a seperate release some day, both of them.

    Not crazy about oversized packaging and paper sleeves.

    Same here. I know it's not the end of the world, but my dislike for the packaging combined with the price and my unfamiliarity with some of the films makes this an easy pass until the exclusive films are released individually.

    Those of you that haven't seen at least High Anxiety and are skipping it are missing out! It's a great movie :)

    Apparently the 2005 Producers has a Japanese BD that is pretty good and in English and Region free. I haven't felt the need to try to import it though. We'd probably have it already except Universal distributes the film in the US. (Sony everywhere else).
