As for LWAC, I wont order until more concrete specs appear but as it stands $40 is a good price for 6 films.

The LWAC specs havent been announced yet. Just because Shogun Assassin was on 2 discs doesnt mean LWAC will be.

The list price for Animego's dvd box set was $149.99..it's currently $97.49 on Amazon..the blu-ray set has a list of $59.99 and amazon are currently doing pre-orders for $41.99...and are saying 2 discs...Shogun Assassin set had a listing of $89.99 and is selling for $40.94..it's on 2 discs though amazon say 5 :icon_suspect: if it's on more than 2 discs and judging by their rrp's then that amazon listing is wrong and the corrected price will be up soon..if i were you i'd pre-order,you can always cancel when you hear the specs..oh and btw have you seen how much it is here :cool:

:o Thats a fantastic price. Thanks for posting :)
I'll think I pre order at Amazon, I dont have an account with Import CDs.
I ordered from Amazon to see what happens - that ImportCDs price is insane - shipping could be more expensive though, do they count (say) a 2 BD set as 2 items?

you'd sooner pay $13 more at Amazon because you won't spend 2 minutes setting up an account at importcds? :? --

i did a test order for a 13 disc Deadwood set which is huge..$9 shipping to the uk.Still a helluva lot cheaper than your amazon option.

A bunch of celebrities nobody gives a fuck about telling us how he inspired them to do things nobody gives a fuck about. Brilliant! Shannon Lee is a money grabbing whore.

Bugger, now the price has gone up for LWAC - still cheaper than Amazon mind ($31.49 now). I hope its still that price by next week.
I still dont see the point of a cheap price if you cant actually pre order it at that price.

I know what the specifications are, I'm asking if the tracks are as crap as usual.

I think the specs give that one away.

I know, I know... But I think I heard somewhere that the BD mixes in general might be less terrible than what used to be on the DVDs. But I don't have any confirmation for this.

Is there any passable dvd edition available? Been wanting to see the film for a long time.

I haven't heard that. Seems unlikely to be honest.

The Joy Sales DVD (Fortune Star remaster) should be passable, but I haven't seen it myself. It apparently contains the original Cantonese mono, but you'd need to check to be sure.

Please forgive my abject ignorance, but what is that photo from?

Edit: clarification--your signature pic--what is it from?

Interesting new Bruce Lee Blu ray releases in Japan later this year. It looks like you will have the option of 4 dub tracks, Mandarin / Cantonese / English Dubbed / Japanese dub. Also it says Japanese theatrical version, which could be interesting because these have a different music track..see here for details....http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=203248

Reading about them on the forums - they look interesting.. I've never seen the "Japanese theatrical versions" before or Fist of Fury's Mandarin trailer.
I already have about 4 DVDs of The Big Boss though - will it be the uncut Mandarin print? (kidding) :P
Might get BOSS and FIST.

That's a tongue twister, no English subs :(. I bet they're properly remastered this time too.
