    Yeah, I posted about this sale in two other threads earlier today. Unfortunately for me I already own most of these films except the Creature set which I have no interest in as I only like the first Creature film that I have on 3-D BD.

    I think it's been reported that these sets now contain the replacement disc.

    How do we know?

    And is Amazon blowing out the old sets at fire sale prices to make way for the new set?

    Again, how do we know which version we are getting?

    I haven't heard if there's any way to know for sure. But either way, either you'll get the corrected disc in the set or you can send away for it later if the Revenge of the Creature 3D disc you get is still incorrect (it sounds like they fixed the 3D version, but not the 2D version).

    Amazon has not been selling this set at all for several weeks, so I'd like to assume they just got new stock from Universal with the corrected 3D disc and are trying to boost sales before Halloween is over.

    Unfortunately, based on numerous posts, mostly at the Blu-ray.com website, the replacement disc has only been half corrected, with the 3-D version now sporting Blu-ray quality, but the 2-D version still looking DVD quality. It could be possible the SBS video files were left on the revised Revenge disc.

    Paging Bob Furmanek?

    CHEERS! :)

    SBS files won't play back in 2-D. If there's a problem - there are two posters reporting - that's not it.

    I forgot about that all important detail! Wonder what else would cause the reported disparity in PQ between the 3-D and 2-D versions of the same film, then? :blink:

    There's no way to speculate until more people get the disc and report. I'll have my set Thursday.

    I missed out on the deal of the day in October, but ive been following the price on Amazon and it dropped down to $79 today. Not as good as $69, but at $2.66 per movie still a tremendous bargain.
