Back in early May we passed along word
that Visual Entertainment Inc. (VEI) was in the middle of preparing a DVD release for Poltergeist: The Legacy - The Complete Series
. At the time we had no release date, and no pricing...just the package art (shown again below). Now Amazon.com has a listing for the title
, showing that the 16-disc set will cost just $49.99! When will it be available? Tomorrow,
July 4th...happy Independence Day
! Our thanks to reader Jim Mazzeo for spotting this and pointing it out over the weekend.
Not even 10 minutes after we posted this news, Amazon's listing was revised to show that the DVD set for Poltergeist: The Legacy - The Complete Series
would instead be available to begin shipping on Friday, July 7th
, rather than the 4th. That's actually more in keeping with standard practice for VEI: for their own reasons, they choose street dates that occur on Fridays, rather than the industry-standard Tuesdays. Our thanks to one of our readers, "Matt," for letting us know just how quickly it changed!
