40th Anniv. Set Delayed AGAIN? Seemingly, Yes.

Many of you heard about the recent confirmation that Phantasm's 40th Anniversary Blu-ray set had been delayed due to issues concerning the silver sphere replica. (Word on the street is there's an issue importing them from their place of origin. Not the Red Planet, apparently, but mainland China.) Originally slated for release on October 22nd, Don Coscarelli had been promoting December 3rd as the new release date. (This according to a promotional trailer shown at his recent Tucson, Arizona appearance.) We now have reason to believe that the set has been delayed even further.

The always terrific Dark Delicacies has just announced an in-store signing event for the release. Guests scheduled to attend - as of now - include Don Coscarelli, Reggie Bannister, Gigi Bannister, Ken Jones, and David Hartman. The plot twist in all of this is that the event is scheduled for Tuesday, December 10th and yet is mentioned as being a "Pre-Release" signing. That would seem to nix the December 3rd release date, though we've yet to get any official confirmation on that. In fact, the official camp has yet to even acknowledge that the original October 22nd release date didn't happen - except in-person, of course. An announcement would be nice.

As always, will post more news as we get it.

  2. How many box sets will be manufactured and what will the final price be? I need to budget my nickels and dimes.
