    Ok:

    1) Any word on that new MGM SE? If not, should I pursue the Criterion one?

    2) Since Robocop 2 & 3 are OOP, any word on re-releases of these?

    And yes, I have used the search function already.

    The Robocop MGM SE and 2 and 3 are out in Europe

    MGM are sitting on this, and the new Robocop miniseries "Prime Directives" (it was OK, not great, but serviceable) for close to a year now.

    Who knows when they'll decide to release this and their SE of The Great Escape here

    The Criterion edition has a pretty good transfer (and its got the amount of violence preferred by the director) and the commentary is good. It is not an anamorphic DVD, however.

    I’d pick up the Criterion if the commentary was important. Even though it’s OOP, it can be pretty easily found without paying much of a premium.
