Default The Ambulance- import help

Yeah sorry to start a thread for this/like this. If mods want to delete, fair play.

Just looking for some help and advice. So many here seem so seasoned with buying BDs.

Iíd love to own an HD copy of The Ambulance (1990). Shout are finally releasing one in March, but itís about £26 to import. Iíve imported, but not much since £ died and Amazon US hiked postage etc.

Iíve come close many times to going German for a media book, again about £28 but the book is in German, which Iím not and I do prefer English covers.

So, no sight of a uk release, not sure this even had a dvd here? But on eBay they have a Spanish release for about £10. It looks (not a photo of the item but stock photo) like the new Shout release and the German media cover art.
But Iíve seen in the Spain thread (looks like no ones been there since August last year) threads titled Spanish Bootlegs. This site doesnít list a Spanish release so can anyone help out a fellow member with ĎIs this safe to buyí etc...

So is the Spainh one legit, Iíd rather spend £10 over £25+ for basically the same item. Or any news concrete that Arrow, 88 or whoever has this lined up.

Many thanks if answered.

Some of the Spanish releases are bootleg even though the company which produces them are legit. Many of the TT's releases for example, have seen Spanish releases which are on BD-R discs and I read on dvdbeaver that the disc won't be playing after few years (not sure how it works and tried finding about it on the web but no luck yet) .

I would avoid the Spanish disc, as it looks very much like an unlicensed bootleg. The US Blu-ray will be a genuine release with new extras, and it appears to be £15.62 at WOW HD, though. It seems like that may be the place to get it from, as there is a large thread dedicated to them here.

Hope this helps.

If you wait until closer to the time it won't cost £26, it'll be about £16-18 at WowHD.

EDIT: Or less!

I have the Spanish bluray release. PQ is fantastic and it's a genuine pressed disc. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it.
