It's also been released in Hong Kong. Yesasia.com indicates it has a Cantonese and Mandarin track but lacks details on the features. Does anyone know if it still retains all the special features?

I got mine from Korea this past friday and can say that the SE is worth the wait. Not the Best SE out there but really good. It´s a single disc so no disc swapping is required. I fell asleep during the commentary so I can´t really comment on the last hour. There´s a minidocumentary consisting of short featurettes that works just fine, and lots of GOOD deleted scenes. "The Giants Dream" sequence would´ve been NICE to see in the film. As the "Camp Fire" scene, and the "drag race".

And the 3-4 inch figure that you received with the package is guarding me on the tv while i´m sitting on the sofa.

And it´s a snapper.
