    Mine was delivered this afternoon and was awaiting me when I got home from work!

    It's actually a bit larger than I expected and quite a nice set. Good, sturdy, box with 3 cases for the discs, 5 per case.

    I'll be starting a sequential watch through tonight. :D

    I have a copy of that book also. I always go to it before and after I watch an A&C film. It’s a must for any fan.

    This is THE definitive book on the boys’ films! I too would take Bob up on this fantastic offer if I didn’t already own the book.

    I apologize if this question has already been answered. After buying this Blu-ray collection is there any reason to keep the prior DVDs including that giant DVD boxset?

    I haven't noticed anything from the DVD's that isn't included so there aren't any reasons I know of.

    Someone mentioned about a slight difference in the opening credits sequence in Hold That Ghost where the bristling hair on the animated character is missing. Can someone else verify that? It is also disappointing that the opening credits for One Night In The Tropics hasn't been changed back to the original title cards. I haven't bought the blu ray set as of yet, but I read that it has the same issue with that as the DVD set. The original title cards appear on the VHS edition which is still readily available.

    I believe overall the blu ray should be worth getting, especially if the price drops some more soon. You may want to hold on to the DVD set just as a backup if you would like.

    The hair on the opening credits of Hold That Ghost Blu-ray is certainly gone.

    HOLD THAT GHOST is an outstanding blu-ray! It looks wonderful! If I had my druthers, I'd probably prefer that the hair remained since it's always been there but I can't quibble with the overall job they did on that title.
