What is the best way for a Canadian to buy these releases? Amazon's shipping cost is ridiculous at $12 per disc.

Their last release Ub Iwerks' Willie Whopper, was pressed and since Steve's updates included words like "the Private Snafu set is in replication right now" and he stated that these are not BD-R, I would think it's a pressed disc.

I wonder if the Hollywood Rarities set actually includes packaging and artwork. The last one of those Thunderbean BD-R limited deals I ordered (the Halloween disc) was just an unlabeled consumer disc shipped in an envelope without any sort of artwork. It's a great collection, but I was bummed about the lack of packaging. I've been meaning to make some artwork of my own.

Has anyone heard anything about the More Technicolor Dreams blu-ray? It was announced late last year for early 2018 and I haven't seen anything about it. Tried emailing them a few days ago but I still haven't received a response and there's no info on their site.

The More Technicolor set is definitely coming, but it was July last thing I heard. Thunderbean is essentially a one man operation, and he will frequently delay releases if he has too much on his plate, or if he finds a new short he thinks is worth including, so don't cross your fingers that it will actually come out in July. I pre-ordered his Fleischer Rarities set back in January 2017 and it should hopefully be out this month.
