Default Any news on Police Academy movies? UK Set is available !

I feel like this is a Lethal Weapon or Nightmare on Elm Street all over again and reinforces my beliefs in how the U.S. studios hate the U.S.

While poking around on zavvi a bright yellow box popped up and said "buy me."

Police Academy the complete series, movies 1-7.

Zavvi's cover price is 19.99, Amazon UK's price is 18.92. Both sites are VAT included, so a shipment to the U.S. removes that, but for shipping zavvi charges 0.99, while amazon charges 3.08.

Word of caution though, both sites list it as Region B. I fail to believe this though as it is a Warner release. I see a few Forum comments on them being region free and Warner has usually maintained this track record.
I also would question the AR of these films too. At the moment I am not looking at imdb to see the correct specs.

Just received my zavvi order of this.
I can verify that all 7 movies state they are in 1.85:1 AR, all 7 movies appear to have varying special features, with the first movie having the most, including a commentary with Director Hugh Wilson, Producer Paul Malansky and actors Steve Guttenberg, G.W. Bailey, Leslie Easterbrook and Michael Winslow.
For audio, Warner decided not to offer a remix but rather to leave the audio at mono, but they did use DTS HD Master for English on all 7 films. There are a plethora of extra languages on all 7 films as well, but in Dolby Digital 1.0.
The cover does not indicate region code info but it is Warner so I really expect it to be region free like the previous NOS and Lethal Weapon box sets.

So now that I have purchased the import, expect a USA announcement in the coming weeks (always my luck.)
