    After a year since I chatted by E-mail with Mr. Weise, Hardware Wars (Region Free!) will be finally be available direct from his website for sale, shipping on or before April 1st. Amazon shows the item as available but estimated delivery is 4-6 weeks.
    Thanks to Bill Hunt at The Bits for posting the info. I originally gave MW his webpage, along with DVDFile and The HTF to pass the news on when the time was right.
    May The Farce Be With You!!

    Yeah, I pre-ordered this a couple of days ago, I think within minutes of The Digital Bits posting the info. My shelf with VHS tapes is slowly growing ever smaller. It's always fun when you can retire one of them. [​IMG]

    I'm all for this. I have the Hardware Wars: Special Edition made without the permission of Ernie Fossulus too.

    From what I can gather, the new DVD is of the original cut of the movie. The Special Edition from several years ago, which featured the 20 new 'Special Defects' was never endorsed by Fossellus, hence the sticker on the Special Edition box.

    Still have to hang on to my CRAP-HS. . .

    Cool. I wondered why the special edition wasn't being included. If the filmmaker didn't support it, I won't miss it.

    Now, if they would just include Closet Cases on there. . . .

    But, I see Ernie Fosselius wasn't involved with that one. Never mind.

    Sill have my old Warner Bros. VHS release from the dark ages.

    It'll be good to have a good version of this one.

    It would have been nice if Fossellius's Porklips Now will see a DVD release someday. It's not as funny as Hardware Wars, but Fossellius does a hilarious Brando imitation.

    I just got my copy today. For anyone else who has this-- did you get an insert? I didn't, but I expect that that was probably the intention seeing as this isn't a high profile release.

    Thanks!
