    In addition to the all-region disc that's been discussed here before, Amazon is now listing a R1 DVD of the Twin Peaks pilot episode:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000068TQU
    The disc was released 24 May 2002 by a company called Wave Imports, of whom I've never heard. Amazon's "technical details" page says the disc is "Color, Dolby, Import." No cover scan. No details on the sound format.
    I'd like to believe this will be a better-quality disc than the boomy all-region edition, but am skeptical. Has anyone seen/heard the Wave Imports disc yet?
    Failing that, does anyone feel brave enough to try it and report back to the HTF? [​IMG]

    I'll bet you a dozen doughnuts and a damn fine cop o' coffee that this is the same item, just that this "Wave Imports" company is stocking up on them in the USA, and Amazon is dealing with them on a special-order basis (note the "Usually ships within 3 to 4 weeks" message).
    But, Douglas, why don't you let us know after you get your copy...Mr. Guinea Pig! [​IMG]

    Now that Amazon is carrying it I wonder if people will still insist it is a bootleg?

    Not all Asian releases are bootlegs [​IMG]
    You just have to be careful who and where you buy.
    Express.com was selling bootleg CDs for several months after they bought up GameCave, and I called them about it and asked "Do you know that every single anime/video game CD you guys are carrying is a bootleg?"
    The boots vanished 2 hours later
