Got an update today from Scott Essman at Universal about an upcoming DVD release. In the seemingly never ending quest from Universal to repackage previously released material comes their latest release, The Classic Sci-fi Ultimate Collection. In fairness, though, it is a tremendous collection of films in one set. No word on extras, if any, and the retail price is kinda high, but for those folks who missed out on the first collection, which now is selling for as much as $150.00 used or more, (there is a new set listing for $375.00 on Amazon right now) this is their second chance to get these films at a reasonable rate. Here's what Scott had to say:
Universal has set The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection: Volumes 1 & 2 for release on DVD on 5/13 (SRP $59.98). The set will feature 10 films on 6 discs, including Tarantula, The Mole People, The Incredible Shrinking Man, The Monolith Monsters, Monster on the Campus, Dr. Cyclops, Cult of the Cobra, The Land Unknown, The Deadly Mantis and The Leech Woman. All will be in their original aspect ratios, and the widescreen films will be anamorphic.
