I only recently just picked up the FuturePak. :arghh:
MGM FuturePak is nice I have that myself
The Scream Factory and Arrow Video releases though is lot better in terms of extras and video quality

I already have the 2 Disc Blu-ray scream factory release
Scream factory release has film on Blu-ray and extras on separate Blu-ray

Arrow Video release It's pretty much similar to the scream factory release in terms of the extras the difference been Arrow Video is 1 Disc compared to Scream release been 2 discs

Arrow video release has new encode of the scream factory 4K scan remaster

Ordered, will change to an Arrow pre-order closer to the time if the price doesn't drop below it
This might end up sold out as a pre order with arrow films on-line store before release date if sales are good and then be only available to order from retailers like amazon/Zavvi/Hmv etc
Amazon price will drop you can expect be at least £24.99 or less

If your planning on holding out to order direct from Arrow Films best to keep watch on Arrow Video Facebook for updates as they will give notice if it's close to going sold out to order direct from arrow films
