Well, I have the set on pre-order and I hope this leads to a new beginning of classic cartoons on home video.

Everyone, I encourage you to do the same. Because if you want what Tonyboy85 listed, pre-order Porky 101 now and you'll be rewarded later.

EDIT: Wait, are any of those things he listed really going to happen or is he just giving an example?

Yeah, I got it on pre-order.

Aside from tonyboy's point, I do hope we see a BD of this down the line. "Not restored to Blu-Ray standards" implies 2K transfers that haven't been cleaned up like WAC Blu-Ray's usually are; hopefully good sales could encourage movement on that front.

The things I have listed are the things we wished for.

Oh, so they're not happening (saved for Tex Avery which is on the list according to Jerry Beck)?

15% off flash sale today. Code WB15. Porky 101 is included for an extra $7.20 off the $47.99 regular price.

Those who pre-ordered at full price will need to call WB Shop to cancel and then re-pre-order. Can't be cancelled online from what I can see.

That's 15% off of $38.71 = $32.90.

Not bad. I think I'll keep my Amazon pre-order at $36.26 though.

Paying extra thru WB Shop for the pressed discs. Amazon will be shipping MOD DVD-R discs.

Sorry, I glitched and thought you were referring to the Deep Discount 15% off sale.

I wonder if pressed versions will be used for pre-orders not placed at WB.

I'm hearing no. The pressed versions are supposedly exclusive to pre-orders thru WB Shop only.

Anything we wished for could-&-can happen if we
buy the DVD "Porky Pig 101" as best as we can.

Well, I won't argue with that. Maybe sales from this will meanwhile convince Disney to release classic shorts on home video again.

With that, we have the press release:

"All of the cartoons in the collection have now undergone varying degrees of remastering from the best available 35mm elements, including archival nitrate sources."
Interesting way of putting it.

That's the first time we've heard the word "remastered" in reference to the not-on-Golden Collection shorts on this set. That implies at least a little bit of cleanup, if not the sheer scrubbing the previously restored cartoons got.

Again, no reference to the resolution. Again, I hope they did HD scans that could be cleaned up in the future.

Notably, this has EVERY B/W short with Porky in it, regardless of content. That needs to be encouraged.

Seeing the pre-order price on Amazon...
wishing the pressed discs were not exclusive to the WBShop....

Same here, as I ordered through Deep Discount--their sale price was too good to forgo. I'm still holding out hope that all pre-orders wind up receiving pressed discs, but when I contacted WB Shop they said pretty much what Tardo317 said a few posts above:

Thank you for contacting us.

According to the information I have all the other stores are selling the Porky Pig but the MOD version. At the moment only our website is selling the Porky Pig 101 pressed version.

If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us again.


And unfortunately it was signed "Sincerely" rather than "just kidding."

ClassicFlix confirmed that the stock they received was pressed so I assume DeepDiscount would also have pressed stock.

If Amazon is selling and making a profit at ~$36, I assume WBShop must really be making a mint at ~$55. Especially since WBshop has no middleman to deal with. I totally support the work that Warner Archive is doing, I just start scratching my head a bit when I see these kinds of price difference. Makes me think there has got to be a better sales method for Warner.

I thought it might work out that way, especially since Deep Discount shipped my pre-order on Friday the 15th; it would seem odd for WB to burn initial discs for others, then press their own supply, then start burning again once those were exhausted. We will see. Thanks for the info.
