Current edition ("Skynet") says it's 6.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. Is that incorrect?

My guess is that these are all just the existing discs in new packaging.

 

Personally, I don't like unusual cases or digital copies, so I'll be passing on them.  But I have to admint that some of the artwork is pretty bad-ass.

Why has there never been a boxed set of all the Highlander films? Is it because some of them are stupid, or because they're from different licensors, or???

 When I was going through a cutback phase because of lack of storage I consolidated many of my multi-series DVDs/Blu's  into single sets - I regretted getting rid of some of the inserts and cases so this'll be a good opportunity to return some of these to their own standalone cases. Still,, I'm going to wait for price drops on these because paying $20 seems like overkill just to get a cool-looking case.

Yeah, especially since some of those are in the cheapie section in their old blus. I think I paid $3.99 for Stargate at Walmart.

I like the current Pulp Fiction blu-ray, but I wish it contained the original Miramax logo.

"Fans will rejoice as each Steelbook also features new artwork never-before-seen in the U.S.!"
Not exactly true. At least two of those movies and this artwork have been available on previous releases in the U.S.

Stargate and Sin City. I have them.

Different licensor issues. The closest we ever got to a box set was when Republic Pictures (pre-Blockbuster buyout and Artisan-distribution) licensed HIGHLANDER from its then-owner, Lumiere Pictures (which got absorbed into StudioCanal) and later bought perpetual homevideo rights to HIGHLANDER 2 (or at least it's "Renegade" reedit) from the producers, after a brief VHS and laser release on Columbia TriStar.

Currently, HIGHLANDER is still controlled by StudioCanal, HIGHLANDER 2 is now controlled by Paramount, the remaining theatrical films by Miramax, and I don't know who owns the TV spinoff.
