    Thanks for the information. This and the Gary Gygax documentary are two Kickstarter's I'm extremely excited about.

    Why is Amazon listing this as unavailable? I was looking forward to pre-ordering the Blu-ray!

    Yeah, they changed its status again as it was available to order just a couple of days ago. Shout out to Mark-P.:)

    Probably another supply chain issue. I see that Amazon has also delayed the estimated arrival of my 4K UHD Superman: The Movie pre-order until November 9th. I sure hope the powers that be get these replication plant problems resolved soon!

    The Thing From Another World still not available again. I’m getting worried. If it goes live again I’m pre-ordering and regret not doing it earlier. One of my most favorite films.

    I posted this on another site earlier, so I should post here also. I messaged Warner Archive abit ago and asked why I could not find a site on which I could pre-order The Thing from another World blu-ray. The answer that I received from them is as follows. They told me that the date posted by Amazon was premature, they also referenced replication delays. They told me that they really do not have a release date at this time, but hope to soon. It is definitely coming, just not sure when now. Hope this helps everyone.

    Warner Archive releases are not limited editions; even if replication delays prevent everyone from getting their copy on release date, that doesn’t mean that anyone’s lost their chance to get it.

    My advice is not to panic - it may take a little extra time for everyone to get a copy, but it’s not a limited edition and it’s not going to go out of print in the foreseeable future.

    It's being sold on Amazon UK from third party dealers at over 60 pounds. Too expensive for me so I'll have to live with the one disc from the UK without the audio commentary.

    Is there a special UPC or ASIN number for this. I'd love to look at the contents even if £60 is a bit too extreme

    Is it an Arrow or Universal release or a release date to research. I'm afraid I'm being dense and coming up empty finding this item at all or maybe I'm just totaly confused over what I'm looking for

    The link provided by Mark took me to that version that is over 60 pounds. I ordered a used one for $15 and change, shipped. I’ll let you know what I think when I get it.

    Thanks for the information -- for some reason I couldn't get it to pull up on DVDProfiler by using the name. After the picture in the link I was able to get the UPC and figured out why my Profiler was missing it.

    Johnny must have gotten the last Used itme that shipped to US -- none of the 3rd parties I looked at shipped to the US
    A couple used copies popped up on Ebay so I took a chance. I'm always up for unique items.

    UPC 5050582442960 for anyone else wanting to search


    If someone is up for taking a chance, there appears to be a 2015 Italian R2 2 Disc set that lists the commentary. One 3rd Party (Vecosell) appears to ship to the US -- around $25 New. My address was accepted, but there appeared to be only one shipping speed/charge regardless whether you live in Italy or internationally. Good Seller rating so probably not an issue other than shipping speed.
    Released by "Sinister Film" which seems to be a legit company though not prone to use the higherst quality cases adn artwork

    Now that an HD master exists, I wouldn't be surprised to see a new UK Blu-Ray with the previous extras available soon.

    Yeah, I don't buy used discs, it's something I never done. I'm leery of buying anything on Ebay too.
