    I held off on buying the trilogy when it was first released, and next tuesday, May 21st, sees the release of the "special edition" box set. Has anyone seen any reviews for the set yet. With it coming out next week, you'd think there would be.

    Are there any major differences between this set and the original?

    Looks like new widescreen transfers and the inclusion of DTS soundtracks.

    Hmmm... it's been a while since I've seen these three films. Maybe it's time for a rental.

    DVD Shrine has pictures of the packaging and menus up here
    Looks pretty cool!
    Kinda wish it was 4 keep cases, but this appears okay.

    Received my review copy a few days ago,

    but it will take about a week to get through it.

    We will have an in-depth review up Tuesday evening.

    Looking forward to the reviews, Ron. I really liked First Blood, and would enjoy owning a high quality transfer of that flick.

    This is not a full review, as frankly, it
    will take me three days to watch the movie and
    go through all the material.
    I can tell you this now...
    I watched FIRST BLOOD last night.
    Other than the fact that the picture is a tad
    dark, It looks simply incredible. One of the
    best catalog transfers I have seen. Even the
    DTS surround is quite good.
    I have the 3 more discs to get through and
    should have a review up on Tuesday afternoon.

    i just picked up the new special edition at walmart yesterday in the bargain bin for $5.88. it was the only one in there so i figured it had to be a mistake? the date on the box is 2002. and it has the DTS and wide screen so it has to be the new one . right?
