Bought their Box Set of Harryhausen and they were stunning, enough to sell my TTs and broke even on the sale.

Not sure about the 2nd Box Set. We'll see what the reviews say.

Too bad "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad" is included in a separate Sinbad set. Would have preferred it be included with the these other Ray Harryhausen films as I have no interest in the other Sinbad films.

Bought Mysterious Island from them yesterday. About $20 shipped to the US. Sold my Twilight Time copy (which has less extras) for $69 on eBay.
