Hi,

Just got the first 4, all Warner.

1. THICK normal DVD size, thus looking like stunted cases, lol. Silver raised embossed logo at top. Actually, it's the new AMARAY HD DVD case.

2. Large ratings stickers front, spine and back (normal DVDs leave out the back). Kiss Kiss has a local cover error, stating German instead of Spanish on language and subtitles.

3. The discs are the US pressings!

4. So no repressings on the bobbed titles. Just cheaper for Warner.

5. The discs are STILL combos, but not advertised as such, and since they are R1, cannot be combo priced.

Looking forward to seeing what Universal holds by way of Tokyo Drift, priced higher than Warner.

A$30-$35. I pay discounted which comes down to A$21-$24.

The Universal titles are A$45, discounted to A$32.

A$1=US$0.80
