    No one asked you to say anything. I was done, you were stupid enough to leave an unwanted comment in a forum. Ill tell my wife im sexiest, well have a few laughs. The only thing old is you on my case. You got on my case.
    So im a pig,trogodyte,sexist,lunatic who needs help, coming from someone who doesnt know me, and someone I no zero about, and do not wish to either, but likes to start trouble with me by leaving unwanted comments.
    Like I really care what you think..not.
    No one asked you to leave a comment toward me, next time why dont you just not say anything and not disrupt things. DUH Idiot !
    Your turn…since you apparentley want to go back and forth on this..you brought this upon yourself, not me. Take meds, they work..

    robwillsey, don’t forget The Final Sacrifice. very canadian.

    um, i didn’t forget it, that’s what started the topic. anyhow, i think theme sets would be a bad idea. if i were a casual fan or new viewer and i had 4 gameras in a row or 4 Bert I’s i may not want to subject myself to more of the same. I think the ep length is already enough of a hurdle to getting new viewers. and since many of the hardcore fans already have every ep and many have balked at the price, they will need new viewers for sure.

  5. Janet Planet says:

    I think hardcore fans who already have every ep will always want to buy every set, regardless of the titles included. Being “hardcore” usually means buying everything ever released, regardless of price, duplicity, packaging, etc.

    …speaking from experience… :oops:

  6. Rotten as British Teeth says:

    Yeah, I agree with you Janet. Most of the Rhino DVDS are eps I’ve had for years, but the fact that they are on DVD alone makes them appealing.

    I’m also with anyone who disagrees with the whole “themed” box set idea thats been tossed around here. While putting different eps from different eras of the show seems haphazard at first, it actually gives you an idea of how the show changed over time. A great example of this was Rhino’s original release of Volume 10, which had two Joels, one Mike CC era and one Mike Sci-Fi era. Playing those in show order would give the average viewer a good idea of how the show changed over time.

    …and Wild Bill’s head would be perfect for a homemade Dr. F figure, but I can’t find a Joe torso with the right lab coat.

    Hey, I’m fine with getting sets that are just whatever 4 happened to be most available at the time (with a little PD Gila Monster saved for a rainy day, which I’m guessing was the case with Rhino), and volumes 9, 10, and 12 were probably the strongest so far by virtue of having 2 Joels, a Mike CC, and a SciFi (even if 2 of those 3 sets were recalled…), and if Laserblast was the only “key” ep Shout Factory could get for this set, then I know any attempt to get multiple specific eps for a set ain’t gonna’ happen because it’s impossible.

    But if they did just happen to get the rights for 3 or 4 experiments with a theme, should they go out of their way to avoid releasing them together? I mean, were sales of volume 7 hurt because it had 2 Hercules movies, and 3 that originally aired right next to each other if you add Killer Shrews? As a fan who missed out on the whole Comedy Central run, I thought it was neat to be able to watch a good chunk of Season 4 in order like that.

    And thanks to the above flames, I think I finally got a taste of the spirit of the Joel vs. Mike feuds of the mid-90s.

    So as I was saying, it’s a shame Stan Winston’s movie monster fig line was just whatever he made up based on the titles of ’50s scifi/horror, and not accurate depictions of Glen Manning and the She-Creature. At least the Universal Monster line gave us a Gill Man and Mole Person. And Trypticon bears an uncanny resemblance to Gypsy…

    Kind of off the subject, but can anyone tell me why volume 9 was pulled. I know #10 was recalled because of the Godzilla movie, but I’ve never heard the reason for #9. Just curious. Anybody?

    I believe Vol 9 was pulled for “Incredibly Strange Creatures…”

    I’d heard repeatedly that they lost the rights to “Women of the Prehistoric Planet”, but TISCWSLABMUZ is the only one in volume 9 that I know to be currently available un-MSTed, as part of Ray Dennis Steckler 4-pack.

    Does anyone actually know these things, or is all our 3rd-hand info just based on other people’s guesswork?

    …And they could do 3 different figures for Cambot, the KTMA version being, ironically, the most interesting…

    (of course if you back out all of the comments posted by Happy this thread is sitting at around only 70 posts….not female…so no PMS here)

    The Bolem is right, set 9 was pulled because of “Women of the Prehistoric Planet”. I’m surprised with the re-release of Volume 10, Rhino didn’t try to do something similar with Volume 9.

    Hmmm….”Grabnutz”…not bad. I may just have to adopt that one. Still I think Snow White will be very unpleased with your behavior, you should have taken a different Dwarf name. (You aren’t Eric the Midget by any chance?)

    Back on topic. I think Shout Factory has done a fantastic job with this collection. The tin case, the disk cover art, the Crow figure, plus the announced extras sound great! I’m not real picky about the particular episodes, so I love getting an upgrade on all of them. The real test for Shout Factory for me will be how quickly they get these box sets out. I want more than just 2 releases a year….I’m greedy like that.

  18. Happy,
    What’s pathetic is having no grasp of the English language or how to use it in a grammatically legible way and then expecting people to take you or your comments seriously. Is that “snotty” of me? Perhaps, but this is one show where the fans have always struck me as an intellectual notch above the rest, and expressing oneself in an intelligent manner is but a small, yet telling, indication of that.

    To “Jesus Thinks You’re a Jerk” – I love Zappa! I’ll be humming that all day :-)

    Webster # 268 Your little snotty, stuffy comment above was nothing short of amusing. Reading lines like “Grammatically legible” bwahaa haa ok you get the stuffy uptight nerd award.Now take that award and kindly shove it up your candy ass..
    Grabnutz # 267 the only thing midget is whats is your little pew wee brain, another nerd. Ill be humming the bridge of the river kwai today…
    And you call yourselves MST3K fans…what a catastrophe for people like you to call themselves that. Only the MLB forums have more attacks on members. I thought Misties were above getting on other members cases, but I guess not..
    Who’s next ?

  22. I can’t believe you ended that with a preposition! Try this instead:

    “Now go back to whatever hole in the ground from which you crawled out.”

    Isn’t that better?

    Back to MST3K, #261 – I thought RDS tried to regain rights to his movie, which is why Vol. 9 was pulled. Did that attempt fail?

    I bought a 4-DVD pack with the Incredibly Strange Movie, + 3 other Steckler classics at Best Buy just last Christmas. One would assume he’d still have the rights to it and get a cut, but they were all his oldest stuff, and therefore possibly PD. That, tragically, means no “The Hollywood Strangler Meets the Skid-Row Slasher”, in which the second title character, played by his wife, has a photo of herself in her TISCWSLABMUZ outfit hanging on her wall(*sniff*).

    As I wondered before, is there anyplace where we can actually find this stuff out?

    …make that 4 Cambot figures: I forgot that Season 1 Cambot was KTMA protoform Gypsy with a pod in her mouth. And for that matter, will a future set come with Crow’s legs?…

    Just a final thought.

    I too had dreams that SHOUT! would give us a collection of only key episodes and I do believe they got our hopes up. A month has passed since this announcement of episodes and I agree to simply think of it as Vol. 13. Eversince Rhino Vol. 1 came out I was there at Best Buy on release day, not even aware of which episodes were on it. I just wanted DVD copies of my fave show. This new collection is just as good, if not better, than some of the Rhino’s and I’m looking forward it and the other volumes from SHOUT!

    I really hope that Del Tenney proves to be a good sport and allows them to release the episode where they hammered HORROR OF PARTY BEACH. That to me was one of the FUNNIEST I’ve seen.
