    MUNSTER GO HOME! has been released in Germany, & I read that it looks very nice, but it's region B locked. Maybe one for Kino.

    Unfortunately, they're region-locked.

    But they were released on Blu Ray.

    Also Pufnstuf is available in HD from iTunes and looks terrific paid $4.99 for it.

    Yes, the fact it's on Blu is great. I'm just not region-free and not sure if I will be anytime soon. (Have looked into obtaining a multiregion/non-region player or sth which could be region-"altered", but thus far haven't found anything simple enough for me nor within my semi-modest budget). Great news about "Pufnstuf" being HD-mastered, although I would prefer a 'hard copy' (for a variety of reasons).. Here's hoping it shows up in a near-future wave of Universal's MOD program, or maybe via Shout factory

    You can pick up a good region-free player for around $100. Honestly, if that's a deal-breaker, you probably shouldn't be spending money on blu-rays to begin with.

    The 60s Dalek movies really aren't worth buying a region-free player for though, IMHO.

    $100 is not a dealbreaker as long as it's a good, fairly reliable machine, of course
