    USA Today had a short snippet in Life section that Warners would release two different versions of Forbidden Planet, one for about $28 the other for about $60. This will be mid-November.

    Fantastic, I'm so glad they didn't miss this mega sci-fi classic's 50th anniversary. [​IMG]

    For $60, I'd hope they include a model of Robbie the Robot -- I can't think of anything else to justify the price.

    Perhaps a copy of the long out of print novel.

    Sounds good!

    That's probably a $60 MSRP so will be around $45 or so. There's some fun stuff in the CE but I'll probably go with the regular version.

    Ah yes, a Robby the Robot action figure would look great on my desk. The Collector's Edition it is, then! [​IMG]

    Great news! This calls for a tri-banana salute.

    I already have the old version, but I am sure to double dip for the new 2 disc Collector's Edtion.

    Some Specs per Variety:
    Warner Home Video is expected to announce today that what many film historians consider the most influential sci-fi film ever made will arrive Nov. 14 in two DVD editions: a two-disc special edition and an ultimate collector's edition. For both editions, the movie, in a new widescreen version, has been digitally transferred from restored film and audio elements, while the soundtrack has been remastered in Dolby Digital 5.1.

    Extras include commentaries, additional scenes, three documentaries and two subsequent programs featuring the movie's celebrated Robby the Robot: the 1958 MGM feature film "The Invisible Boy" and the "Robot Client" episode from TV's "The Thin Man."

    [bites fist] Can't we have it now and forget about the "we're releasing it in November" malarkey! [​IMG]

    Whoa really can't wait for this, so Invisible Boy is a bonus movie than? Nice.
