One question: are the Mill Creek DVDs and Blu-rays still in print? By this, I mean not only the Showa films, but the Heisei ones as well. UPDATE: I just found out on another post that Mill Creek doesn't have the distribution rights anymore, so I guess that they might be out of print. Still, if anyone can confirm this, that would be great! I say this because I'd like to update the Wikipedia article if I can.

Late response, but yeah they pretty much are OOP. Anything available from retailers now is most likely old stock.

Are we also talking about the Mill Creek Gamera Vol. 1-2 collection, cause every Walmart I’ve been to has been eat up with them.

Picked up Vol. 1 just a day ago, quite a lot of sub errors, strange.

I think so? I'm not sure Amazon sells them anymore (excluding third-party sellers of course).

Considering how cheap the Blu-rays are, I'd go with those.

Like I said, I had no clue they were OOP, they're everywhere at Wal-Mart, but thanks for the info, I'll pick up vol. 2 before it skyrockets from $7.00 :lol:

I just ordered my Mill Creek copies. About fifty bucks in total for all three sets on Amazon.ca, free shipping.

Added in 13 days 23 hours 35 minutes 59 seconds:
I just got my disks in the mail. Very nice set. They condensed the Gamera trilogy into one Blu-ray case but kept it a two disk set.
