Two-and-a-half weeks ago we reported
on an oddity: Amazon.ca (the Canadian branch) had begun showing pre-order listings
for new releases, from Shout! Factory's Timeless Media Group (TMG) label, of both The Saint - The Complete Series
and also The Saint - Seasons 1 & 2
...both of which were said there to be coming out on April 21st. However, the American branch of Amazon.com was showing pre-orders for the same two titles (here
) with different dates.
Shout!/TMG has now revealed that the dates seen at Amazon.com were the correct ones after all, with May 26th
being the finalized street date for The Saint - The Complete Series
33-DVD set. That collection will come with extras such as Introductions on Select Episodes, Audio Commentary on Select Episodes, and an Interview with Sir Roger Moore. Price is $199.98 SRP, but you can pre-order it from either Amazon.com or from the Shout! Factory online store (see button links below) at a discount. If you pre-order it from the Shout! store, they will ship it 4 weeks early (mmmm...perhaps around April 21st, maybe?). Below you'll see the finalized front cover art for this title.
If you're the type of person who prefers the smaller, more wallet-friendly season sets, no worries: Shout!/TMG is still planning to put out The Saint - Seasons 1 & 2
on DVD as well. However, the date for this 10-disc set isn't going to happen as soon as previously reported. At this time the title is currently planned to come out on October 13th, for $39.97 SRP. You can lock in your copy
at Amazon.com right now, at a discount. But keep in mind that October is a long way off, and that date is still subject to change. Stay tuned for details, box art and more for that item, when Shout!/TMG makes their official announcement later this year.
