Blue Underground is releasing two Italian masters collections. Each release retails for $39.99, so you're spending about $13 a Bluray, might be worth it if you already own the DVD (which I already own via Anchor Bay or previous Blue Underground DVDs). Amazon is selling these for $24.99 ($9 a disc), so you can shop around. I typically don't really pre-order and prefer to actually see it in person before I buy anything. I hope Best Buy or Walmart will carry these.
None of these disc have any special features that I like (audio commentaries), but generally you don't buy these collections for the features.
