That just means everybody will get the chance to own the version he likes, so what's your point?
Working for Arrow and annoyed you're not the first one to release?
BTW: The Futurepak is a repack of the Mediabook and not the other way round.
If you'd read the details more carefully - instead of obviously just trolling around - you'd have seen that.
Now I know again where I know Axento Media from.
Haven't you been involved in the "Cinespectral Elvira disaster" and are now spreading scilolism and talking big again?

And so the futurepak itself would still be the more affordable version, as it has 3 discs (DVD +2x Blu-ray), at least for German clients, at price of 50 percent of the nameless media books.

As for the Arrow release, there are good reasons that it won't be first which includes scheduling of releases, as well as new artwork and of course the producer's versions of the making of documentaries (which means approved by Tony T. and also me). And of course Arrow have their own restoration.

Not talking "big", just clearly stating what this is and the same or improved contents are available somewhere else.

I don't know where you have your info from, that Best Ent. would repack Nameless Discs, but it is simply wrong, Scotia is still the main license holder for this title in Germany.
Again - sciolism and bla bla.

1. I never denied Scotia is the right holder/producer of the discs, I just wrote Nameless will put out the release
2. I also never wrote Best Entertainment will be the distributor of the Futurepak which
3. isn't even true because Indigo is and
4. I got my info where everybody - incl. you - can get it from: Amazon.de:
https://www.amazon.de/Elvira-Herrscherin-Dunkelheit-Bonus-Blu-ray-Poster/dp/B000AA4MMC/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1524412726&sr=1-1&keywords=elvira

Of course you don't have to inform yourself but then you wouldn't make a buffon out of yourself either.

As for you insults (e.g. "Buffon") I won't reply on the same "level".

Nameless has a distribution deal (of which I also know the exact details, as they played a part when the special features contents where acquired by Arrow for their release). That is all they have, they got digital materials (e.g. cover A is what was the booklet page 1 on the cinespectral release) for their media book production and one booklet text by Calum Waddell from Cinespectral. They were not involved in the authoring process. They only release the discs first, which was part of the deal. But that does not make it a "Nameless Release".

So I am sorry for you, but your "information" is not sufficient at all, especially if it is only based on Amazon.

Like I said for reasons which might become more clear once all editions have been released and can be compared in all their details, Tony T. and I decided to get our names stripped of the documentary on the German disc.

You can insult me in any way you like, it won't change that I have insight into the details of all this.

I personally recommend German customers to pick the futurepak, as it gives the same contents for a better price. I am sorry that you have issues with that.

But the Arrow release will be the one with the improved contents and I know that because that is what we have been working on with them.
You use the Nameless thread to talk the Nameless release down and push the Arrow release.
Very classy (talking about "level").
Why don’t you just post your stuff in the Arrow thread and leave this thread for the Nameless release (which was the original intention of it).
You really must be in a sore need and pissed that Arrow are not the first one to release…

hello friends! Nice to see us all together again for the third time. Looking forward to when this is discounted to $15. My advice to everyone else is to buy from somewhere like Amazon where they don't bill you until it ships.

What I'd really like is DVDs of Evlra's KHJ 9 TV show. That was her peak.

Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence. I'll pick up this film when it's finally released by a REAL company in plain vanilla packaging for $15.... and I won't preorder it!

Just throwin this in as some "experts" over at the new German "movieside" forums threw in some wild speculations as this Nameless Media release is delayed again because of their packaging (according to their newsletter)!

So it starts like this (it is all German, so you might need an online translation):

CLICK

and then the next one goes into wild theories:

Click again

So to summarize:

The poster "thinks" that the nameless release is delayed because of any power struggle with me or the old German company. While I don't have anything to do with the Nameless release and the old German company, I know that the actual disc images were uploaded to the pressing plant WEEKS AGO!

So apparently it must be because of the packaging or any other reason of which only THEY know what it is about. Neither the old German company or I have anything to do with delay and I am tired of the fact that my name is getting involved in that "Nameless" release or any of the German releases.

And any of those (nameless) circumstances are not connected with the progress of any foreign release.

That's an info I post here for the fans of the movie, before any more confusion is spread by wild theories.

Thank you.

The Nameless Mediabooks are still scheduled for June 11, 2018, as far as I figured out:
https://www.amazon.de/Elvira-Mistress-Mediabook-Limitiert-Blu-ray/dp/B07CLW6ZHP

It's the cheaper FuturePak by another company that is going to be released in September:
