I was checking Rhino.com's MST3K catalogue and noticed Vol 9 was missing. I wrote the guy at mst3k.com and he confirmed that it was a goner for now. He did say Rhino was going to try to get it back.

These are still widely available for around $45. Although amazon.com is sold out I noticed many places still have it in stock.

It's a damn good set with equal parts Joel and Mike. Don't miss out!!

Vol 9:
Women of the Prehistoric Planet
Wild Rebels
Sinister Urge
Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became *rests fingers for a second* Mixed up Zombies

Thanks for letting us know about this! Vol. 9 is one of the sets that I haven't picked up yet, so I'm going to try to buy one in the next couple days. Thanks again for the heads up.

It's probably not a licensing problem as much as they only had the license for a certain period of time.

More than happy to do it! I feel it was my duty to make this public and.....

deepdiscount.com still has them in stock for about $35.


I have 3 more to buy, Vol 6 thru 8. Plus 11 when it comes out. I'm most excited about 7. I love every one of those. Prince of Space is just fantastic!

I thought I read some months ago that Vols 1 and 3 were going to be going out of print, but amazon still has them available. Did that turn out to be false? Right now the only ones I need are 7 & 8. I'll try to get those really soon, just in case.

So how many people are going to pick MST3K Volume 11 as soon as it's released? Since I almost missed Volume 10, I know I won't be waiting. Posted Image

You're correct. Here the blurb from Satellite News:

Quote:
GRAB VOLUMES 1 AND 3 WHILE YOU CAN!
Our source at Rhino Home Video informs us that it has lost the rights to all four films featured on The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection: Volume 1 (Catalina Caper, The Creeping Terror, Bloodlust and The Sky Divers), and will, in March, lose the rights to The Sidehackers, featured in The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection: Volume 3.

So, if you haven't bought 'em yet, scoop 'em up now.

Our source also says they are working on what to do about the two other movies on Volume 3, The Unearthly and The Atomic Brain (the fourth disc in that set is a shorts collection). Stay tuned.

BARBARA WRIGHT: You're from Earth?
MORTON DILL: No... no, ma'am, I... I'm from Alabama.

I'm pretty sure that the individual release of Beginning of the End is OOP as well.

I'm hoping I can just buy all the ones I'm missing some time before summer and then start sleeping better at night.

I figure rifftrax will never go oop. Posted Image

Damn straight!

I have 1-10, and you can bet I will be getting Volume 11 as soon as it's out.

You know, I'm soooo out of money after all the sales from Sony, Anchor Bay and Buena Vista, but I'll be damned if ordering Vol 9 didnt' make me feel soooo good! I can't wait to have 1-11! Posted Image

I almost missed Volume 10. It came out on the same day as a number of other discs that I was buying so I waited and then I figured that I'd just hold off until the DDD sale (like the cheapskate that I am Posted Image) but I won't be waiting when Volume 11 comes out.

When I read that V10 was being pulled, I went directly to Best Buy and grabbed one.

All the remaining copies I saw locally vanished pretty fast once word got out. I fear more Ebay sellers than fans got the remaining stock. Posted Image

Christmas Eve I walked into F.Y.E. at the mall and there was 1 MST3K there placed on the shelf on edge like a book. Turned it around, saw the dino and knew it was Vol 10. I thought I was seeing things. I stood there for about a half minute looking it over. My dad was waiting just outside the door and I screamed "they have it! This is it!". He groaned and walked away. The old fart has no appreciation for the finer things! He'd waste the $59.99+tax on something like electicity or gas for the car. What an old fool!

I'm very glad I was able to get Vol 9 for $36 instead of $63.

I played catch-up between vols. 2-7 over cost, but that was years ago. I've been buying them on release (even if I have to switch R1 DVD source) ever since.

I'm really hoping they can pick up the pace, but I imagine clearing some of these films can be difficult considering the ludicrous amount of time Copyright has been extended to _and_ backdated.

I know Sandy Frank, the dude who did a lot of those great Japanese dubs, had a big problem with the show. Those will probably never see an official release.

I wonder if Sandy Frank even holds any rights to the Gamera movies anymore?
http://www.sandyfran...ertainment.com/His company seems to only be into gameshows now.

I was thinking the same thing at one point. But then a forum poster ruined it by smartly reminding us that Frank would own the rights to the audio track. Posted Image

Of course, it'd be a trip if everybody would come back and redo everything. New dub for the movie and new dubs for all the MST3K riffs!

<============= lives in a fantastical dream world Posted Image


I tried to send a message to them about our desire for a release of all Sandy Frank's japanese monster movies with and without MST3K but their email form didn't work for me. Posted Image
