    be reissued for a 20th Anniversary package this year in a box-set with proper keepcases? Any possibility?

    I just came accross this R3 package which made me jealous - http://www.hicotech.com/shop/titlema...?PID=DVD031505

    I've held off on two of my favorite cult movies in hopes of something like this...

    Marco,
    That's one sweet looking digipak case. I've also been holding off on buying GREMLINS and GREMLINS 2: The New Batch just for the exact reason you stated. It appears that the discs are the same as the Special Editions albiet they're not in snappers. Damn, I guess you and I should hound Warner for this to come here. I shall join you in your quest.

    Sweet looking indeed!

    I might just succomb to the temptations and place an order, though I'm very weary of purchasing from pacific region e-tailers...

    I don't get why we don't have the equivalent of that set here...

    Have a question about these actually. Is there an SE of these in R1? I though part one got an SE no? Have been wanting to pick these up.

    Oh and whoever owns part 2 can you tell me, is the "interruption scene the original theatrical one with Hulk Hogan
    or the stupid home video version with john wayne
    ?

    Acually the dvd for Gremlins 2 contains both version. The orignal film version is in the regular movie segment, but the video break is a easter egg at the main menu (highlight the Gremlin claw). The dvd for Gremlins 2 may not be a special edition, but it does contains some good extras on it. The commentary is acually pretty neat and has some good deleted scenes from the movie too.

    Haviland Morris deserved more critical and career recognition for her performance as Marla Bloodstone.

    Both Region 1 discs are excellent for extras. I know that the digipack looks great above, but the r1 are are fine. Also I don't like the way that there is no real art for the sequel in the R3, whereas R1 gets the original poster!

    ^ yeah but the original art is showcased on the actual disc.

    I've been trying to place an order all night through DVD Heaven for this and the A Better Tomorrow trilogy set (which if you haven't seen look just as cool!), but can't figure out how the hell to get through checkout! If anyone's ever used DVD Heaven before, please help me out!!!

    Only the first flick is formally called a special edition on the packaging, but I think they did that mainly to differentiate it from the original bare-bones release. G2 has almost as many extras, so it also should be consider a special edition. Neither is great, extras-wise, but both are good.

    More power to you, I suppose, but I gotta admit I don't get that. Isn't the content of the DVDs themselves what's important, not the package?

    I seriously doubt these will be re-visted anytime soon, unless for some reason they decide to make "Gremlins 3," at which time perhaps they'd feel like doing a tie-in. But since G2 was a huge flop, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Those who don't like the packaging, your best bet is that perhaps the discs get re-packaged in keepcases like the "Austin Powers" series.

    Damn, Marco...
    That A Better Tomorrow Trilogy is absolutely beautiful looking. A sure-fire masterpiece when it comes to cases and packaging in terms of the style of it. I take it the next awesome looking packaging or case or whatever I'm going to want too. Keep up the good work.[​IMG]

    I've place an order for the Gremlins 1 & 2 box set through DVDHeaven this afternoon so if all goes smoothly, these ltd. sets will be my next purchases!!

    Btw, check out this forum for some really neat looking import collector sets, I don't understand a word of what they're posting, but the pictures and topic headers speak for themselves...

    I have heard that this does not have English Subtitles, and that is about the only thing holding me back from buying that 'A Better Tomorrow' box right now.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Because it seems rather pointless getting this version, if I can't watch half the bonus features (although experiencing the box would be cool enough).
