I watched the animated movie, but haven't gotten to my Gen 1 box set.

Shout Factory and Hasbro/Toei? Hmm. I'd better consider buying more Power Rangers sooner than later! Recently picked up Dino Thunder.

Shout Factory's been dropping many licenses lately. They don't seem interested in renewing anything unless it's a big seller. They keep reissuing the G1 set and MMPR so those will probably stick around for awhile. Big Bad Beetleborgs and VR Troopers are out of print but those didn't sell well at all. It's probably a matter of time before later Power Ranger seasons and Super Sentai sets also go OOP.

That makes sense, though, doesn't it? With the overall market contracting at the pace it is, I'm sure sales are down across the board for all publishers. It just doesn't make economic sense for publishers to keep renewing and reprinting releases and licenses.

Yes, it makes absolute sense. But in a perfect world we could keep everything available forever.
Ultimately it is better to put finances into acquiring new properties instead of renewing one's that have grown stale. But eventually somebody who missed out is going to want them.
Hasbro may eventually license their content out to another distributor once demand builds back up, but in this age of streaming there's really no way to know how much of this content will be on disc again.

I don't follow RS sales much anymore but do they still have studio sales? There are a few Discotek titles I'd like to purchase and was wondering if the prices drop to their pre-order price.

They had one for Discotek last year. Studio sales don't seem to be as prevalent as they used too. They actually had a 10% off in-stock items recently.

They don't seem to do as many studio-specific sales. But, they usually run Discotek-specific sales the week before both their big July/birthday and Black Friday/Christmas events. So, if you can hold out until mid-to-late June, you "should" be in luck.

Thanks for the head's up. Hoping Monday's Discotek announcements also mean street date reveals of titles we already know. I'd like to get the second and third sets of Hajime no Ippo in one swoop if possible.

I'm sure most of the announcements will be release dates and just like 1 or 2 big announcements

A marketplace seller on Amazon.it has the OOP French DVD release of Urotsukidoji 3 & 4 on sale for only 8.95 Euros. Unlike the US release of Uro 4 this release is uncut and unlike the German release the first 2 episodes aren't cropped to widescreen format. No subs, French/Japanese audio only in PAL format.

Don't know if anyone would be interested in a sealed/new Neon Genesis Evangelion Perfect Collection DVD box set with the blu ray version being imminent - but here's one on eBay for those of you who might be interested. Saw it, thought I'd share;

$165 in U.S. dollars.
