Has anyone seen the new Image release of season one of COMBAT and if so, how's the quality?  Any better than the previous releases?

I haven't seen the discs but I just assumed that it was the same discs in one package.

^ Same here.  If anyone has bought the recent individual releases, let us know.  I'm 99% that they're the same Image transfers from the previous releases.

i believe thay are the same time compressed episodes from before. season 5 was the only season that did not suffer from time compression.

It may take a while to get the info on the reissue releases since a lot of collectors had bought the original volumn releases or the box set.

True.  Although most of S1-4 are TC'ed, the good part is they're not (scene) edited.

 

There are a few S1-4 episodes that escaped TC.

 

I hoped for a remastered release using the original elements but glad to get the complete series on DVD years ago.

I'm considering buying all 5 seasons as a blind buy (either the complete season sets currently being issued by Image or the complete series set).  It's really just a matter of getting the right price.

Hope you get a good price soon.  That complete set is historically pricey, usually averaging around $160 at Amazon although I've seen it as low as $101 in the past.

 

The price doesn't drop often though.

 

I looked at a couple of Amazon reviews so take this for what it's worth.  Someone posted this about the recent S1 re-release:

 

 

This set is a repackaging of the time-compressed, syndicated version of the episodes. They run 46 to 47 minutes long each, rather than 50 min plus for the original full-length episodes. I have an advance copy and checked the running times myself.

 

 

To clarify, the TC'ed Image releases are the complete episodes (scenes).

That was interesting when a friend mentioned that TSoD had posted that yesterday.

 

Even though it appears to be re-released from another studio besides Image, I don't see anything in the news post that indicates new transfers or remastering.

 

Part of Dave's post at TSoD:

 

 

Expected to have the same on-disc content as the 2005 release of "The Battle Box," this 40-disc set will come in a new box...

Jeff, thank you for introducing me to Combat!  I have purchased and viewed seasons 1 through 3 and I am really loving this show.  Season 4 is on its way and season 5 will be purchased next pay check.  Thanks again.
