For the turtles fans from Blu-Ray.com -

Quote:
Warner Home Video has revealed that they will bring the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Collector's Edition Box Set' to Blu-ray this August, day-and-date with the DVD release. The set, which is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the first film, will include all four TMNT films - 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles', 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze', 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time', and 'TMNT' - in stunning high definition.


No technical specs or special features have been revealed at this time, but you can click here to view the Warner Brother's website showing the proposed box and disc art.


The set includes all three live-action films (ah... remember the good 'ole days before endless CG sequences?) as well as the most recent animated film, which was released on Blu-ray in 2007.


We expect to hear more as the release date approaches.

I hope it includes the once promised director's cut of the first film. Or, at the very least, I hope it restores the whole training montage in the farm that appeared in theaters but was truncated in all subsequent video releases.

I love the retro art on the BD cover. TMNT3 disc is going to go unused no matter what I've seen that movie twice already which was two times too many for such a **** movie.

Where the hell are they getting 25 years from? First movie came out in 1990.


It's been 25 years since the comic came out, so maybe that's what they're referring to. Seems like a silly excuse, though, especially since they bastardized the comic with the movies. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first one, but it was hardly representative of the darkness that the comic suggested.

Enjoyed the first one a lot when I was a kid, and the sequel was (and still is) a guilty pleasure. Unfortunately there's no way I'm going to buy a box set with all four. The third movie was zero replay value for me, and I already own TMNT on HD DVD (I heard rumours of another animated film - anyone know if there's truth to that?). I'll have to see if I can pick up 1 & 2 used somewhere.

I first thought this was a must own when I heard about it as being a Trilogy set (being a die hard Turtle fan) but I hate the third movie and already have TMNT on blu-ray, so I'm not so sure now... if the price is right and they didn't DNR the **** out of it, I'll have to bite.

Yeah, I wondered that too. Apparently is been 25 years since the creation of the Characters, i.e. Comics.

Regarding the 25 years comment, that had me scratching my head, too. I clearly remember seeing this movie during its theatrical release (opening weekend, as I recall)... and the year was definitely not 1984.

Eastman and Laird first created the Ninja Turtles in the mid '80s with the old black & white comics.

This is the reason. They actually re-released the original action figure designs as 25th anniversary items as well along with a few other odds and ends.

Oh I love the old Eastman and Laird coverart (assuming that's what it is which is looks like it could be). This will definitely be a day 1 purchase.

Maybe, just maybe, we can hope for a UK release that has them all individual much like the 4 Batman Movies.

I was thinking the same thing. I only want 1 & 2.

Was TMNT a good movie? I was the biggest turtles fan as a kid, but the PG rating held me back (was hoping for a darker movie like the first teaser implied). Blind buy, rental, for TMNT fans only, kids only...?
