So despite the "4K restoration" they're still not releasing it on UHD?
Arrow Video don't have UHD distribution licence
They only have licence from film studios at the moment for DVD and Blu-ray

A Robocop UHD release if it happens would be from MGM
With FOX haven been taken over by Disney you will be waiting

Oh hell yes! Shame the back doesn’t fit well with the front, but that front artwork has always been my favourite!

Used to have a poster for that from my local video shop as a kid!

Instant purchase! Any codes at all?

Awesome artwork and the Arrow treatment on the transfer and extras :thumbs:

With Amazon being a pound cheaper and free delivery, Zavvi can take a hike.

Finally! Always wanted the original poster art on a steel... shame about the back though (as is often the case with Arrow's steels).

P.S. Ordered from Amazon because free shipping. ;)
