    Are the THX single disc versions of Halloween and Army of Darkness that are out now the exact same discs that are found in each respected LE?

    I have both the LE's and was over at a friends house who has the newer THX single disc versions and the discs look identical, from the screen painted art work on the disc itself to the menu screens as well as the extras.

    Did Ancho Bay simply let the LE run OOP then just re-package the first discs of each set to sell again? No big deal just curious, I guess I assumed that the LE discs were different and that Anchor Bay went back and repressed the movies again to re-sell, with perhaps fewer extras.

    AB released the first discs of both LE sets as unlimited regular releases. These single-disc releases were released concurrently with the 2-disc LEs and are nothing new.

    So the single disk versions that are readily available today are the exact same discs as the disc #1 in the LE sets? When I say same disc I literally mean the exact same disc, not that they sport the same transfers and have the same extras but literally the exact same disc, down to the screen printing on the discs themselves.

    So basically, if someone had the 2 disc set and the first disc of the set got damaged then all they would have to do is go out and buy the single disc version and you could replace disc one of the set.

    I appreciate your help, I was just curious, plus it is good to know in case disc one in either of the LE sets I have go bad then I can just go and buy the single disc versions to replace the discs.

    Thanks.

    Yes, or if someone wanted to create their own limited edition instead of paying $90 for it on E-bay, all they have to do is print out the cover from www.dvdcoverart.com and buy both AOD DVD's.

    Of course they would be missing the proper inserts and various post cards that were inserted in the two LE's. Not to mention the holographic cover from the Halloween LE. Also, what about the second disk of AOD, the directors cut. Is the Bootleg Cut that's out now the same disc as disc 2? Surely not.

    Yes it is. AOD Bootleg Cut is LE-Disc 2. Like Halloween LE Disc 2 is the "Extended Version" out now.
