The Anchor Bay release states 15 Disc and 10 Disc sets but Scream Factory only announced the 15 Disc set. does that mean anchor Bay will be releasing a separate set with only the films and no extras? Either way this is a set that has been too long in coming. One other question; will this set include all of the bonus features from previous releases? Many collectors actually have to own multiple copies of the same movie because they want all of the bonus features. Can we finally be done with that please?
