USA Today had a short snippet in Life section that Warners would release two different versions of Forbidden Planet, one for about $28 the other for about $60. This will be mid-November.

For $60, I'd hope they include a model of Robbie the Robot -- I can't think of anything else to justify the price.

Sounds good!

That's probably a $60 MSRP so will be around $45 or so. There's some fun stuff in the CE but I'll probably go with the regular version.

Ah yes, a Robby the Robot action figure would look great on my desk. The Collector's Edition it is, then! Posted Image

I already have the old version, but I am sure to double dip for the new 2 disc Collector's Edtion.

This will be well worth the wait --- HD Movies Network ran "Forbidden Planet" several months ago, and the new transfer was just gorgeous.

Some Specs per Variety:
Warner Home Video is expected to announce today that what many film historians consider the most influential sci-fi film ever made will arrive Nov. 14 in two DVD editions: a two-disc special edition and an ultimate collector's edition. For both editions, the movie, in a new widescreen version, has been digitally transferred from restored film and audio elements, while the soundtrack has been remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1.

Extras include commentaries, additional scenes, three documentaries and two subsequent programs featuring the movie's celebrated Robby the Robot: the 1958 MGM feature film "The Invisible Boy" and the "Robot Client" episode from TV's "The Thin Man."

[bites fist] Can't we have it now and forget about the "we're releasing it in November" malarkey! Posted Image

Whoa really can't wait for this, so Invisible Boy is a bonus movie than? Nice.
