Agreed Buddy @Robles I think the artwork on this one is far superior.
I (somewhat foolishly) purchased the MAG huge Boxed ed for the 1st film, so this ed will match nicely with that artwork.
I'll post a pic side by each when this lands at home. :happy:

As for Hollow Man, I had an order placed with Zavvi for the lovely set and they cancelled it. I guess they ran out of stock?
I'd love to see a repeat of it so I can snag.

3 and 4 are hilariously terrible. Blood orchid is a fun watch though and I always enjoy the first film, which proudly wears its B movie creature feature heart on its sleeve. This is a great looking set and having missed out on the previous release I'm very happy to see 88 films rerelease it with a cool looking rigid slipcase

Preordered!

I'm curious if disc 3 is a flipper disc (do they even do those anymore?) or a double layered disc with both films 3 & 4 on one side.
It's the same discs as previous release
2 films on 1 disc not a flipper

It's just a re-release with new packaging
Rigid Slipcase with New Artwork

Thanks again for the info @paulboland. Always appreciate your news and knowledgeable insight.
I missed the 1st box set release (as again, Zavvi oversold and mine was cancelled...grr...) but honestly, I think the art on this new set is far superior anyway. :)
As I mentioned, I have the MAG release of the 1st film and this set's art matches it lovingly.
Assuredly, not the best sequels ever produced but still a fun brain-free watch, ( still beat the Star Wars ones though, heh).
