    Hopefully the A/V quality will be equally as good or better.

    Hmmm. Doesn't seem to have that extra kick of the Toy Story SE (as in more significant newly produced content). But I'll probably pick it up anyway. I bit odd releasing it on a Monday though.

    ...and releasing it the day after Christmas is pretty strange, too.

    No mention of a new boxset but undoubtedly that would be coming some time after. I am picking it up too.

    If anyone has watched the previews on the new TS1 dvd they would have seen this release date. It said something to the effect of "a good way to use your gift cards"

    Definetly a double dipper for me. I hope the it equals or betters the 1st 10th anniversary edition. I've always thought that TS2 was already a marvelous picture, it'll be hard to improve on that. But the DTS is what will get me.

    Why should we expect anything less than what the Toy Story 10th Anniversary delivered?

    Oddly enough, in the UK we're getting it on 28th November (same day that TS1 10th Anniversary edition gets released):


    See here.

    I suspect this simply reflects different marketing characteristics. Christmas is a much bigger deal over here. A large proportion of companies close down or only work on skeleton staff between Dec 23rd and Jan 2nd. Although stores are open on Dec 27th it's mostly for food and sales. The big spending period here (and proportionately a lot more than the USA) is in the month before Christmas.

    No need to watch the preview. The TS 10th edition came with a $3 coupon for it.

    Pass, again. The UTB was plenty enough for me.

    I don't expect anything less from TS2 10th anniversary. I can't wait to see what it's going to look like. TS2 I always thought had a beautiful transfer, even to point where you can see that Buzz had some wear and tear. It will be interesting to see how they will better the video.

    Since the first Toy Story 2 disc looked so good, I don't know if the new can look that much better. Of course, I'll be finding out when I pick it up[​IMG]

    I'll likely get this because my TS2 disc of the UTB has a couple of bad patches in it (totalling roughly 10 seconds). No idea what happened (it used to be fine), but knowing those bad bits exist in my collection drives me *nuts*.

    Has there been any reviews of this yet? Comes out in 8 days. Just anxious to see the comparisons to the original release, which was excellent already.
