Two separate release for about $30 each.... I realize Shout Factory has to make money, but let's be honest here: they're more than likely just going to use the same PQ and AQ that MGM used for their releases (which were perfectly fine), while adding a few new extras like a commentary track or two, a retrospective, and possibly some vintage featurettes/behind the scenes footage. Not worth $30 each IMO. Their releases of Parts 2 and 3 should just be a Double Feature release for the same price, or less.
It's just hard to think of buying these 2 sequels for $60 when I remember buying the MGM 4K restored blu-ray a couple months after its release for $5....

The second one provides some amusement, although I never feel any urge to revisit it, and the third one is a total dog. I think of this as another series with only one good movie in it, where people will take the inferior sequels if they're bundled with the one good movie in a blu ray set, but few people would buy the sequels on their own. Maybe I'm wrong.

I alread have these in that 3 pack that was released with the remaster of Robocop. I wouldn't have bought 2 and 3 if it didn't come with the first. 2 is only slightly watchable, 3 is just bad.

I enjoy 2 almost as much as the first, 80s filth kind of stuff, 3 was just awful on all levels, honestly cant believe Scream is giving that shitfest the time of day....complete waste, although a commentary on 3 might be fun to listen too. I honestly havent looked at these much in the set I already have, I got the set early so it still had the unrated cut of the first film so I bought the remaster of the first one later for $10 when it first hit and it looks really damn good. $30 a piece for either of these is asking quite a bit and they probably wont get that money from me, especially for part 3, supposedly there is cut footage from the 2nd and that might be worth looking into but I'll gladly wait until these are a bit cheaper

Robocop reading poetry while his partner is in trouble and trying to hold her ground, lol.
