Wait for the bi-annual B&N criterion 50% off sale and find a Ninja who would be willing to get it for you and ship it..as a BIG godzilla fan, i would love to order this, but is probably going to be region A, and Criterion do not ship internationally. the amazon price tag + shipping makes it damn expensive.
Thanks for your advice !Wait for the bi-annual B&N criterion 50% off sale and find a Ninja who would be willing to get it for you and ship it..
(We are in the middle of one of them - so the next one won't be for a while. But, Criterion also does 48 hour flash sales from time to time too).
On the plus side - it isn't a limited edition (as far as I know)
If it's in your budget- region free players can be had for $100. (And believe me - they pay themselves off very quickly. The world becomes your oyster - Every release in the world is o.k. For you to buy and watch!)Thanks for your advice !
I think that it is my best option so far.
Now there is still the Region A issue, but considering i don't have english subtitles on my final box, i should not consider the region as an issue
I hope somebody will update this thread when the sales occurs.
Also wonder if criterion will secure the rights of the heisei and millenium movies.
For those who are interrested in a UK release; a guy on the blu ray dot com forum mailed Criterion about it. They replied they are aiming for a november release.Crit has put out a LOT of Region B releases as well. I would expect for such an iconic set, it won't be long before a R-B is announced.
