WAC wasn't doing Blu Ray in 2010 only DVD-R. Actually that was just a rumor unintentionally started by several animation websites when they stated that this would be good for WAC to release because they didn't go to retail stores where it would get more attention, that did make sense but there was never an official announcement. No actually commitment ever came from WAC on this release. When asked about it they said it was being considered but they did not know if it would be through WAC or WHV and nothing was confirmed. It is still a possibility for a future release but still not confirmed.As most of you know, back in 2010 we were suppose to see a BD WAC release of the censored 11 cartoons. It's 7 years later and nothing... Hopefully this will actually pan out.
Not a chance. They don't even want to release those kind of cartoons in collections with completely different contexts (Tom & Jerry, Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, etc.) What makes you think that they would gather them all together into a package whose context is focused specifically on the cartoons they don't want to release? That makes no sense.As most of you know, back in 2010 we were suppose to see a BD WAC release of the censored 11 cartoons. It's 7 years later and nothing... Hopefully this will actually pan out.
I'm glad they did. The Blu-Ray versions are substantial improvements over their Golden Collection counterparts in terms of color, resolution and lack of compression artifacts.I can’t belive that with the number of cartoons in the WB library that they had to double dip a single cartoon from the Golden Collection into the Platinum Collection. There was so much left out of the GC that they had plenty left over to fill the PC....even if you ignore the non Politically Correct cartoons.
I don't know if this helps, but I saw the first two Golden Collections at Walmart a few days ago for $10 each. They're not in the slipcases; they're in newer, thinner clamshells, but you can't beat the price. I don't know offhand how many of the shorts off of the first two Golden sets didn't make it onto the Platinum releases.I still do not own the Looney Tunes Golden Collection 6 box set . I have tried hard not to buy dvds anymore and strictly stick with blu-rays . I have all the LT blurays . I know there are still a lot of cartoons on the golden set that have not made it onto blu yet or if ever . Hoping maybe Warner Archives continued the series . I have to watch what I buy because of shelf space and just having too much stuff and no time to watch . I was thinking of buying the golden set but it sells for almost $100 on Amazon now . I'd prefer to buy from them that way if there fake I can return the set no problem . Now over at ebay there are sellers with 100% positive feedback that are selling it for $35 . Which I would gladly pay for this set but seems way to good to be true . (either its the junk fake ones made in china or it's the Canadian edition with the really bad packaging where most of the cases get cracked in shipping) . It's interesting that Amazon finally cracked down on the fake ones being sold on there which is probably why the price has gone up . Anyone have a suggestion ? Thanks
Here are wikipedia links for the Platinum Collections which show the shorts included and what, if any, Golden Collection also containing the short:I don't know if this helps, but I saw the first two Golden Collections at Walmart a few days ago for $10 each.
