The description on the packaging is ambiguous. If the bonus movies were on Blu-ray, it wouldn't indicate a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

I wasn't aware there was any such thing as "Full High Definition". Or, did I miss something?

I've heard of High Definition but the new classification of "Full High Definition" sounds like the studio hyping up the included DVDs as "Blu-ray quality".
From what I've gathered from previous posts, this package contains one Blu-ray containing all 3 advertised films in 1080p, and a DVD containing all 3 films in 480. Thus, it is a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. Full High Definition is a marketing term for 1080p as opposed to 720p. I hope this assuages your confusion.

I went to Wal-Mart today and the stupid $7.88 bin is stacked a mile high above the rim and if I tried to move one damn Blu-ray, about fifty of them would go flying. It was rediculous. I grabbed the Gamera Trilogy though.

You need to actually read what people say when you "ask" for something, people had told you that the cover had already been posted earlier in the thread, but you ignored this and said "Let's not forget that no-one has posted a scan of the cover art" when you had just been told that such a scan had already been posted, and that you only needed to look a few posts back to see it. Here were the two posts immediately before your "Let's not forget" comment:

Your toxic for my health. High definition can be 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. If you've never seen the term full high definition on a blu ray release before you need to get out of this hobby. As lcummins said both of the discs DVD and Blu have all three titles on them. Also why do they have to be only on the DVD when it's a combo pack? No the price should not be more than $8. The asylum titles included can be found for $2.50 a piece if you know where to look. I don't know what the heck your problem is but please for the sake of everyone here just leave it go. Your wrong now, you were wrong before, and you will always be wrong.

I found the 3 pack blu-ray at Walmart today, and as a word of warning, it only lists English 2.0 under audio for Godzilla vs Biollante.

I did not buy it so I can't confirm that it's true, but that's what the back cover says. Buy with caution.

Yeah, I also grabbed the Gamera Trilogy. No sign of Godzilla vs. Biollante.

That Gamera Trilogy is easily the greatest of all Kaiju films.

Agreed. Many people will disagree with me quite heavily, but I always found Gamera 3 to be one of the greatest movies ever made (I know, I know). The film is just so well done, not to mention special to me.

I figured this would be the best place to ask on the internet. I have the import DVD of this (http://www.blu-ray.com/dvd/Godzilla-...nte-DVD/72740/) and want some info about the BD. The DVD only had English subtitles for the Japanese speaking parts but not for the English parts. Does the BD have the Sub's for English and Japanese parts or just for the latter.

The BD has two different subs. A complete English sub based off the English dub. Then subs in English translated from the Japanese. No subtitles during the English parts on that. Don't buy the 3 film set with Mega Shark, it doesn't have Japanese audio or subs.

Thanks for that. I wasn't planning to get the 3 pack anyway as i'm not interested in the other 2.

Whew, got my copy from amazon yesterday and it was the right one. I accidentally bought the 3-pack a couple weeks ago but returned as soon as I read the back cover at home and reviews online. Now I got the right one, and just in time it seems. Used prices are more than triple what they were 2 weeks ago when I ordered mine, nearly 4X as much. Still cheap compared to what people are asking for Fortress though!
