Yesterday CBS/Paramount announced
a 56-DVD release of Mission: Impossible - The Complete Television Collection
, a gift set which is scheduled to hit stores on December 11th
. It's been noticed that the 9 seasons included in this set (the 7 from the original show, and the 2 from the late-'80s remake) when released separated came up to 55 discs, so what is the 56th DVD in this new release? The studio has now revealed to retailers that the new disc with this gift set will include special bonus features such as Brand-New Featurettes, Episodic Promos, a Photo Montage with a Vocal version of the Mission: Impossible
Theme (performed by The Kane Triplets), "and more!" This, along with the collectible packaging (seen again below), is the studio's way of enticing the show's most passionate fans to double-dip and upgrade to this new version.
Cost info is now available for this title. The list price is $379.99 SRP, but you may pre-order it from Amazon.com (using the button link added below) at a discount. Amazon's discounted price is subject to change at the discretion of the big e-tailer, but as of this writing they are asking for $265.99 after discount.
