    Oy! I'll end up buying every Corman/Poe (and related) film twice, at this rate, just to get all of the goodies.

    Not that that's such a horrible fate, after all of these years of waiting for them..... :)

    He still pops up on Amazon or other forums to continue his vendetta against Arrow. Blu-ray.com forum banned him for it, and he's been steering clear of AVForums for quite some time since going postal there (though he tells his new forums he left because they got cliquey) :wacko:

    Since we have been talking (and debating) about these limited edition releases recently, here is what Arrow has to say about their "limited to 1000" releases (Frogtown/Hellgate):

    "We would very much have liked to have announced this decision sooner but we decided to announce it now instead of pre-Christmas where it would definitely have gotten lost in all the news about various sales, new releases reviews and general festive mania and we didn't want to look like where were announcing it repeatedly as if we were milking the limited edition status.
    As explained in the quoted post from our Facebook account this is very much a financial decision, these titles were bought with the intention of filling our ArrowDrome range and budgeted as such, since clearly the budget on ArrowDrome is tiny it wasn't an easy decision to release these as Blu-rays (five times the cost of authoring a DVD alone), adding special features (vs no special features on ArrowDrome), manufacturing costs (more than three times the cost of a DVD) and so on. On ArrowDrome where costs are low we can manufacture a couple of thousand units and if they don't sell then that's generally fine whereas if we manufacture a few thousand Blu-rays and we only sell a couple of hundred units, whilst the remaining units remain in storage, selling pretty much only at a forced sale price then we'll never make any money on these titles which will affect onward budgeting on other titles. So it's far better to warn in advance that we can't manufacture more than 1000 units, and we would rather offer these for a limited time only and not be in the red rather than a DVD only and possibly more in the black."

    Arrow is kinda old school. Loaded with extras also. You really feel that you'll get your money's worth.
