Standalone releases? Where are the other six that didn't get released previously?

Maybe they are still coming, but only three are up at Wal-Mart right now.

...So I am confused. Without looking at the full bond 50 set, are those three titles not in the set and have to be bought at walmart? The story is not really clear about it. If this is the case I am going to cancel my set and tell MGM/Song to go F themselves. This site still lacks the complete listing of the titles in the Bond 50 set.

Well I already sold off all of the individual movies, so there is no point in me bothering with these.

These new Walmart exclusives are separate, standalone, SKUs of discs that are going to be packed into Bond 50.

Before this set, several years ago, MGM and Fox released 11 individual Bond "Classics", including:
  1. Dr. No
  2. From Russia With Love
  3. Goldfinger
  4. Thunderball
  5. Live and Let Die
  6. The Man with the Golden Gun
  7. Moonraker
  8. For Your Eyes Only
  9. Licence to Kill
  10. The World Is Not Enough
  11. Die Another Day

Then, MGM went bankrupt and Bond went on hiatus.

That left 9 of the original 20--split unevenly between Connery, Moore, Lasnby, Dalton and Brosnan--as no shows on blu-ray. The following films, which will be included in Bond 50, are as yet unavailable in any form on blu-ray:
  1. You Only Live Twice
  2. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
  3. Diamond's Are Forever
  4. The Spy Who Loved Me
  5. Octopussy
  6. A View to A Kill
  7. The Living Daylights
  8. Goldeneye
  9. Tomorrow Never Dies

Both "Casino Royale" (Bond 21) and "Quantum of Solace" (Bond 22) were day-and-date w/DVD, fresh from the theater.

Bond 50 will include all 22 Bond films released by Eon Productions--from "Dr. No" to "Quantum of Solace", as listed above. It also includes a spot for Bond 23, "Skyfall", and will have sort of exclusive bonus disc, too.

These Walmart exclusives are going to be for the people, like me, who already bought the first 11, Casino Royale (twice) and Quantum of Solace, and want the other movies without rebuying a bunch of movies we already own. Hopefully the other 6 unissued films will show up somewhere too.

Nice, Goldeneye is the only Brosnan Bond I want. And everyone wants some Octopussy.

Let me guess, three will be Best Buy exclusives and the other three will be Target exclusives.
