Fantastic news about this set Chris, keep up the good work. The James Whale work in this set make it worthwhile alone (I'm looking forward to your thoughts on The Invisible Man - I love that movie).

That's my Christmas present sorted - wife can see me getting excited just reading the review so she and my daughter are splitting the cost of the coffin box edition, yaay!

Good stuff - it's an awesome set. More of a Halloween present, I would say ;)

Yep, I'll be covering all the others soon. My thoughts on The Invisible Man are pretty transparent, though. :rolleyes: I'll get me coat!

Cheers mate
