Oh good, Warner made a deal with Kino. That'll make their disc actually show up in stores.

Hmm…the press release says the included Blu-ray Discs have been remastered but the tech specs and extras appear to be identical to the original discs.

I am guessing that WB may have acquired the North American rights to this film from MGM, and thus WB would now own all rights to the entire MAD MAX film franchise, thus explaining why certain supplements are missing from this new collection.

There are no Blu-ray discs included.
The Mad Max Anthology will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack for $89.99 SRP and features Ultra HD Blu-ray discs with the 4 feature films in 4K with HDR and remastered Blu-ray discs of Mad Max, Mad Max The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Mad Max Fury Road. {emphasis added}
Hmmm... The press release stated remastered Blu-ray discs would be included in the Anthology. I got the standalone releases of 2&3, as I already had 1&4: The blu-rays included with the standalones are the same as previously released.

Press releases often have errors in them. Todd reviewed the 4K Anthology release and his comment stating there are no blu-rays matches up with the below cover art for the 4K Anthology release. It states 4K Ultra HD and Digital Code with no mention of a Blu-ray like the below cover art for the 4K standalone releases.
