    Hi

    I heard some time ago that Forbidden Planet was going to be given a new release very soon, does anyone know anything about this?

    I've had this on order at Play since 23/03/2004 when it was originally announced for release Aug 04! Play still list as due on 30/05/05 but according to www.zetaminor.com it has now been taken off schedule - not entirely unexpected unfortunately. Maybe they're waiting for the SE to be ready for release in all regions.

    My long ago placed pre-order at Play now states "Due for release on 27/11/2006".

    It's Forbidden Planet's 50th anniversary in 2006, so let's hope the November date is for a full on, bells & whistles SE.

    Do they really announce releases to that accuracy so far ahead?

    I'd better put a note in my diary for next November to start dropping hints for Christmas 2006!

    Well, it's still 27/11/06 :clap: but as it's only £9.99 I rather doubt that it's the special edition we'd all hoped for. :(

    Does anyone have further details, please?

    I haven't seen any official press release from Warner UK and Play don't have any details (yes I've still got my ancient pre-order in place :rotfl: ).

    I've actually ordered the R1 SE Tin Set so I'll probably cancel my R2 order soon - just waiting to see what's actually on the disc first.

    Being a TG, I don't want to buy it if it's no good! :rotfl:

    That's more like it. :clap:

    Sounds like an ideal Christmas present for TG! :smashin:

    Now to start dropping hints around the family...;)

    I've just had an email saying my R1 "Forbidden Planet: Ultimate Collector's Set" is processing at MovieTyme already! That's really early isn't it, as it's not due for release until 28th.

    If Craig is reading this, does this mean the set will ship sometime next week?

    The HD-DVD tin set looks great though, anyone know where we can pre-order from?

    What's the latest on this, please?

    I was hoping to get the Region 2 50th Anniversary Edition for Christmas but it now appears to have been delayed by 12 months!

    Play have changed the release date from 27/11/06 to 27/11/07! :eek:

    Well, since it seems the Region 2 50th Anniversary Edition will be released to celebrate the 51st Anniversary :)god: ), I've taken the plunge and ordered the Region 1 version from Amazon. :D

    Just be careful if you order the tin, despite being packaged in a box, mine had a big dent in it. I wasn't pleased about it at all, but I could not be bothered about posting it back to the US!

    Thanks, Tejstar, but it's the "ordinary" 50th Anniversary edition at £11.30, so I'm not expecting the tin.

    (Don't forget this is TG! :rotfl: )

    It's 18 months since this thread was started :eek: and I've at last got my hands on the 2 disc anniversary edition. :clap:

    It's region 1, but at just over £12 (including airmail from California) even TG can't complain. :smashin:

    Now down to some serious Krell watching! :rotfl:
