    I'd want these for my own collection. Wonder if they'll make it to NA?

    I don't mind the prequels myself, but they aren't the classics like the original trilogy.

    I'm definitely in for these if the price isn't too ridiculous. I love the painted style they went with.
    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    I would be surprised if they are not region free frankly.

    The original UK release was not region locked, so I doubt it but nobody will know for sure until they are released.

    Thanks Doc and Limey. Hefty price to take a risk on. But then I may lose out if they get sold out.

    Decisions decisions. I knew I should have bought that Oppo a couple months ago LOL

    Yeah, . Maybe now that he's sold it to Disney they'll finally do the right thing. They're pretty good about staying clear of revisionism, for the most part.

    I guess you're not familiar with Disney's history of redoing the artwork and animation on older movies (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc.) and pretending that they didn't change anything.

    What did they change in Beauty and the Beast?

    Some of the original artwork was "upgraded" to make it brighter, more detailed and more colorful, with controversial results. Some of the footage that was originally traditionally animated now looks digital. Same thing in Lion King.

    Disney is also notorious for tweaking the colors in its classic animated titles all the time.
