    I've really been enjoying the box sets, especially #2 with the shorts disc. DDD just emailed me to say that Box Set 3 has shipped to me. Has anyone seen the cover art for this yet? Has anyone heard any plans for a 4th set? Both 2 & 3 were announced some months ago.

    Funny you should bring this up.

    I was just sent the 2nd Volume boxed set.

    I wish these PR firms would send this stuff to
    me in ADVANCE of street date. What is the sense
    of reviewing these titles AFTER release date?

    Yeah, the 2nd one has been out since February or something. Watch the shorts though, Ron-- "A Date with Your Family" and "Cheating" are both hysterical.

    IMO, Warner-Rhino made a great decision to turn to box sets...

    The single-episode discs are good, but are usually $16 each. For $44.99 (amazon's price), you get each episode for roughly $11.

    It also increases the value when they put the uncut movie on the disc and trailers.

    A lot of episodes (especially KTMA) will likely never show up on DVD if just for rights problems.

    However...here's a short list of episodes that Rhino could easily obtain rights or not need to (public domain):

    Monster A Go Go
    Bride of the Monster
    The Crawling Eye
    Robot Monster
    The Black Scorpion (owned by WB)
    Lost Continent
    Santa Claus
    Santa Claus Conquers The Martians
    The Giant Gila Monster
    Girls Town (owned by WB)
    The Painted Hills (owned by WB)
    The Brute Man
    The Incredibly Strange Creatures
    Jack Frost
    Prince of Space
    Invasion of the Neptune Men
    Devil Doll
    Time Chasers
    Phantom Planet
    Puma Man
    Hobgoblins
    Girl In Gold Boots
    Horrors of Spider Island
    Horror Of Party Beach
    Track of the Moon Beast

    The remake might not have went through... Ben Edlund has been trying to make a remake for years, but no one will finance it. (from the now-defunct Coming Attractions website)

    Heck, at least a MST3K video would make money.

    Ben Edlund is blocking the release of the original, or is it someone else?

    Maybe I should email Rhino and ask if there are plans for future sets. Does anybody know where to direct the letter?

    Ben Edlund has the rights to SCCTM? You're KIDDING right?

    Perhaps it's time to get connected to his office at Mutant Enemy with an "Are you nuts" call

    'It's the craziest, Swaziest, Christmas of them all.'

    Classic.

    Also the Santa Martian film also had the credits spelling error. 'Custume Design'

    What else was there, oh yes, 'Nobody was prepared for the, Robot Halocaust.' LOL!!

    This was my very first episode of MST3K.

    Oh, how I miss it.

    Actually, SCCTM is owned by MGM or Canal+ (dunno which, both control sections of the Embassy Pictures catalog, but dunno who owns this one)

    Wow, Chris! Do you really have EVERY episode in SVHS? Are they all your own original recordings? I have just about every episode recorded in SP mode VHS, but all my Comedy Central episodes are dubs.

    All the DVD releases are titles that were already available on VHS. Rhino has not released any fresh titles in a couple years. I am loosing hope on them ever doing so.

    Not the largest graphic, but at least you can see what the cover looks like....

    I love the cover choices they've made so far and this new one looks even better. I also love the inclusion of the shorts...good for a quick fix. "Robot Rumpus" is probably my favorite of that bunch.
