Posted on Sci-Fi Japan Forum's over the weekend:
From MB's Facebook:
It seems that we are getting closer to TOHO allowing us to create a barebones version. The approval of the one with all the extras will take months it seems and given how upset there were with us for DAM release with all the extras we have decided to start with the barebones version first.
Uhmm... This is just my take, but I think *if* MB does a bare bones release of G vs Megalon (and thats a BIG if), then I think it is merely to try to recoup the financial loss they have taken form Toho. I have little doubt that by end of year MB will be competely out of business. Continuous delayed/cancelled projects and 60% layoffs dont bode well for them. Also If they expect already irate fans to double-dip for a "special edition" released later with extras, who are they kidding? I'll hold off (I already have 2 versions of this on DVD), and if the special edition ever comes out, then I might get it, if the company closes its doors, then I can get the bare-bones blu-ray for a basement bargain price I'm sure.
Also I am going on record as saying that on 5/22/12 Gamera The Brave will NOT be available on Blu-Ray from MB.
There has never been a "Scientifically Accurate" Dinosaur portrayed on any Television Show, Movie, or Documentary. Only what the human imagination can conceive, and I'm ok with that.
