RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Hey Mr. Hamhat!  Lookit that - another set where you got one right, and I was right about which one you were gonna be right about!  Wow, 'n stuff!!!

Hey - and Peaky got two right!  He guessed half the set!

I'm gonna guess that the one you've got right this time is "Devil Doll."

I'm actually really curious if Shout has ever tried to contact Ms. Hart.  Would she take their calls?  Would she want major money, perhaps would she be willing to do an interview for the DVD so we could hear her side and get to know her.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

That's very cool, Brian; considering Gypsy's mal-proportioned body length, it's the perfect way to have her on display!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Brian that's awesome! I can't wait to add 'ol Gyps to the collection!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Thats SO COOL Brian
So when is this set coming out with Gypsy ? What was that  ? Did I hear next week ??
Just make sure the source material for the DVDs are good please


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Some of you were lucky enough to see her displayed at our booth at Comic-Con, but here's a rough photo of Gypsy, taken with a camera phone from here in the office.  This is mostly to show you the proportion to Crow and Servo, which is completely accurate, as mandated by Jim and Joel.  Gypsy's a beast, that's for sure.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I see whatcher sayin'.  I meant on Peaky's second post of guesses, just a little further down - he guessed Bride of the Monster and Devil Fish for vol. 19

There is a technicality here with Peaky...He was right on his first guess of 4 with one episode and got one right on an alternate set of 4..which does equal 2 , but it was 2 out of 8 episodes
It would have been super cool if he got 2 out of 4 without the alternate set of 4... :)

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Yes, I definitely would like The Day The Earth Froze, since the current volume had Jack Frost, mainly because Joel and the 'Bots go on about the 'SAMPO' then ask the viewers to tell them what exactly a 'sampo' is..  I'm wondering if City Limits is the one I keep confusing Warrior of the Lost World (or the one w/The Paper Chase Guy), because I liked when Joel 'deletes' the one scene by opening an umbrella in the theater.

Personally, I'd still like the Gamera episodes, but I already know about the legal problems of why they can't be put on DVD. Pity because I still love the skits Joel and the 'Bots did about them as well as Mike playing as 'Gamera' in one skit, admitting he's just using Kenny.  Ah, well, one can dream...

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

haha, mystiefreak!  Yeah, I'm glad I got another one right--and it wasn't an "obvious" choice.  This is a great set of episodes--definitely one of my favorites, but as I said before, that will all be negated if the episodes are as flawed as the last set.  I'm hoping that Shout Factory can recover from the last debacle and that Jim didn't store those episodes in a warm, moist, salty place such as a cheese factory or his mouth.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I was bored at work and kept refreshing the Satellite News page and lo and behold it was announced...
Im really thrilled about this one...


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

So close yet, not really. DEVILFISH!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

NICE!  I'm glad Robot Monster is finally giving the love.  "To live like the hu-man!"   Devil Fish was unexpected, but I'm glad it's being represented as it's easily one of the worst Italian films ever on the show. Shout rules.

I'm going to take a guess and say the next two sets will have Slime People and Project Moonbase as their Season 1 entries. 

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

They made the announcement?  It's not even on the Satellite News yet - is this for sure?

 

Ooops, my mistake - there it was, right above the Gamera vs. Thingamajig - musta been distracted by the pretty purple color of the screengrab.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

LOL Man I was WAY OFF!!!    But it's certainly a worthy set; I'd say that "Devil Fish" was probably the surprise title SF landed, I wasn't expecting that one for awhile.  I wasn't surprised to see that a Gypsy figure was to be included, since that's the pattern SF has taken....since picking up the show in '08, the holiday releases have included a figure.

What I like to do is guess what Steve Vance will draw for the mini-posters.  Having a theme of sorts for this set (Sampo on Satellite News aptly noted that there was a "monsters and devils" theme going due to the titles), that might make Vance's inspirations alittle easier this time around.  Robot Monster will have Ro-Man chasing Crow and Servo, Bride of the Monster might have a fake Bela Lugosi carrying a woman towards a large mushroom cloud with C & T.S. watching in horror, Devil Doll will have Hugo looking menacing over Crow & Servo's shoulders, and Devil Fish may include an image of Servo and Crow fishing with a mean-looking fish lurking just underneath them. (Although a pic of C & TS looking up in horror at the guy climbing a ladder would be hysterical...implying that they were seeing the dude with his "junk" hanging out!) For me, wondering what will be on those posters is almost as fun as waiting for the next titles.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Wow!  I got one right too...  Devil Doll!  That's 4 in a row that I've guessed one right, but this time it was a wild card!  Now, here's hoping that the extras on this set aren't more glitches and video defects...  I have to say, my excitement for this upcoming set has been muted by the glitches in the last set.  I'm still not over that, and I won't be until its made right...  Assuming they can release the upcoming set with no issues, this is an awesome set of episodes!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Hey I got one right!

Howd you find out by the way?

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Very nice! Thanks for the info!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Robot Monster

Bride of the Monster

Devil Doll

Devil Fish

Thats your Volume 19 ladies and gents and I finally got ONE right hooray :)

Oh there is a Gypsy figure included in this set as well...

Oh I love this set already !! :)


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

1 1/2 days and counting..
I dont know why but I think I finally guessed right with Robot Monster maybe even Horror of Party Beach or they could shock us all and get Puma Man
There is a possibility of more Lippert/Wade Williams and the Russo Finish stuff...so potentially it could be another solid set..


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I'm hoping Shout has some clout and manages to get Robot Holocaust or some of the really unlikely ones.  Space Travelers would rock but I know, deep down, it won't happen.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Not to discount the "DVD Likelihood" list at all (it was certainly the product of a TON of research, which I applaud), but keep in mind that "Night of the Bloodbeast", "Warrior of the Lost World", "Final Sacrifice", "Crawling Eye", "Aztec Mummy", "Lost Continent" and others were listed as "Not Likely" or worse and have all been released on DVD.

That's the magic of Shout!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Is there a comprehensive list of which episodes use movies in the public domain vs which are still under copyright?

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Alright so we're in the 11th hour before the announcement of the new episodes so I'm take a crack at this.  My guesses for Volume XIX are:

107: Robot Monster

422: The Day The Earth Froze

819: Invasion Of The Neptune Men

1007: Track Of The Moon Beast

Hopefully I can get at least one right.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Just a few more days until the announcement..i hope its worth the extra wait..but more importantly I want the quality to be back to their usual good standards and not what happened with Yucca Flats..


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Yeah, it sounds like in the beginning of the volume sets, when Rhino was making the double-sided dvds, they had to pay extra to show both versions. I don't see that happening now, between the bad economy and SF trying to scrape up all the money they can to get the better/high-demand titles.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Yes. In fact, a bunch of movies from the first few box sets came on double-sided discs. It's a feature that didn't continue, probably because it got too expensive to make the double-sided discs. It would also seem that getting the rights to a movie with scenes missing is different than getting rights to the whole thing. Perhaps there's some pro-rate thing. MINUTES-USED * RATE = LICENSING-FEE.

And then perhaps add a MST3K-MADE-FUN-OF-MY-AWESOME-MOVIE-FEE.

I would too!  That would be fantastic.  It should be within the realm of possibility.  Didn't Rhino do that with a few films?  I seem to remember Eegah having the option to view the deleted footage.

I wouldnt be surprised to see Hercules come out sooner or later as well as Hercules & The Captive Women for that matter
Once Volume 19 is announced Ill have to come up with a good combo guess for V 20.
Hercules is actually a longer movie than MST3K itself so there are tons of missing scenes ..Id love to see those as an extra - the uncut film


DMS

Yes indeed...VERY sweet!!!

by GizmonicTemp at 7/19/2010 5:48:09 AM

Yeah, it's a popular episode and it's from a popular era of the show. The ONLY reason I can think of for it not being DVD'd yet is because there have already been 14 eps from Season 5 released and Shout is trying to spread things out.

Or perhaps Shout is working on some sort of "Heroes" set with Herc, Colossus, Neo (Robot Holocaust), and Puma Man. That would be SWEET!

If "502 - Hercules" got released (the most "immense and immortal" of Hercules episodes) I think I would probably have a heart attack!  It would certainly be a big, brawny, hairy, glistening, two-fisted, manly day, indeed.

I hope replacement discs will be made available


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I'm hoping for a replacement disc program to start up for The Beast of Yucca Flats.  I know my fan copy didn't have those glitches on it, so there's no reason for a brand new major release of it to contain them.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I'm sure he knows, too. But I ALWAYS swing at a "shameless plug for my website" softball!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Oh, no. I wasn't suggesting two Season One eps on one set. But, if trends are true, there will definitely be one from Season One and nothing from Season Two.
I also feel we're due for another Season Eight and another Season Five. Which means 107, 502, 817, 1007, but that would put the Mstie ranking at 55.5, which I think is too much goodness in one box set. So replace 817 with 618 and that makes it 68.8 which is right on par.

Geez. I need to go outside...

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I doubt we will see two Season 1 episodes paired unless PumaMan is in it. Seriously, since Season 1 isnt too popular to many a fan I cant see them putting 2 on the same set
Id say Robot Monster, Robot Holocaust, Slime People and Project Moonbase are the last 4 easily obtainable ones...and Id like to see them all in future sets...
Man I cant wait until this announcement so I can guess Volume 20 ...
I wonder if SF might go 5 or 6 titles on a set ??? (the SRP price might not work well for buyers maybe)
Oh well just a thought


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Personally, I wouldn't mind "Robot Holocaust" either, and I kind of wonder about RM and Moonbeast being on the same set since they're "easy targets", so perhaps Holocaust instead of RM.

You know what's funny? Brian knows already and is reading these just laughing. Enjoy your coffee, Mr. Ward. There are only a few days left until we know for sure!

...and then we get to start this again for #20.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

I had that feeling about Robot Monster too , thats why I made that prediction for this set. Now that the Wade Williams titles are now subject to license from SF I think this is the biggie from Season 1 that people might actually be happy with
This and the Crawling Eye are the 2 most popular Season 1 episodes so I can really see Robot Monster coming. This is one is considered one of the better Season 1 episodes  Mix that with Horror of Party beach youve got a good pair already..201 and 624 are key good episodes to make it a great set..but it is feasible we can get another Russo Finnish title..
Robot Monster ..a hunch is really growing here


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Brian-
 For "Robot Monster", it appears in the Mill Creek Ent. box-o-movies Sci-Fi collection, so I assume that getting it would be easy, and it's the most popular show from Season One among Msties so there's a good "pull" for it. "Moonbeast" is the exact same way. And based on all the episodes that aren't on DVD yet, these "fit well" into most remaining combinations. For the other shows I picked, my magical program said so!

Of course, others had "feelings" about RM and Moonbeast even before I applied my reasoning, so seeing both of those movies come out in the lead after I was done either means I was influenced by previous reasoning, or there are greater forces at work here...

Question... Naturally, I'm neither confirming nor denying, as anyone who reads these threads knows, I won't do that.  But I'm wondering why, using your process, you have a particularly good feeling about one title over any of the others.  What is it about that title?

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

This topic is just TOO addicting so I created an account to chime in. I took a bit of a scientific approach and noticed certain thing about past Shout! box sets. For instance, they like to keep them as diverse as possible; equal hosts, not too many shows from one season, not too many shows from one "era", not too many "easy targets", and they also don't make any one set "too good" or "too bad" based on the Mstie community's feelings. Sure, there are some shows that are untouchable, like Gamera and Final Sacrifice (dramatic pause), so if I have some "untouchables" in my list, deal with it.

Oh, and when I say this is "my" list, I really mean that I wrote a program, fed it certain restrictions, and this is what came out. That being said, it makes the results even more interesting since many of them have listed above already.

107: Robot Monster (I have a REALLY good feeling about this one)
1007: Track of the Moon Beast ---OR--- 913: Quest of the Delta Knights (ditto for these)
And then any two of these:
817: Horror of Party Beach
618: High School Big Shot
602: Invasion USA
502: Hercules
403: City Limits
420: Human Duplicators

422: Day the Earth Froze or 505: Magic Voyage of Sinbad is on my list for set 20 or 21 because I just don't think Shout! would release two Russo-Finnish films back-to-back. Personally, I hope I'm wrong!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Hey guys, been lurking for a few months so I figured I'd sign up and post my predictions.

First off, assuming Shout's relationship with Corinth films is still rocking, either 107 - Robot Monster or 109 - Project Moonbase is likely.  I'm going to go with Robot Monster, since that's the more popular choice.  Bride of the Monster could also be on the table, but the possible PD status of that film may push it off temporarily, so I'll leave that off for now.

As derided as 323 - Castle of Fu Manchu is, there's likely some pressure to release more 3rd season eps, so I'll add that one.

With Jack Frost out, 617 - The Sword and the Dragon is a definite possibility.

And given that it's highly ranked and seemingly highly available, 817 - Horror of Party Beach would round the set out fairly well.

Anyway, those are my opinions, and Mr. Ward has probably got a surprise or two up his sleeve.  Can't wait until Comic-con!

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Sounds funny...I have a hunch we might see another Russo Finnish title but I hope I guessed right anyway
One more week to wait for the announcement & then I can make some picks for Volume 20
I dont think Ive guessed right once and thats going back to the Rhino Days


DMS

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

We should have a contest to see who can comes closest to guessing the titles on the next set. The winner should get a prize like a dollar off their next purchase and a friendly handshake.


Shout Factory knows how to release televsion, now if only they could release Legends Of the HIdden Temple. One can always dream.

RE: Its addicting..I cant help it..lets guess Volume 19 (please?

Which I am guessing includes
The Gamera series
The Corman / Gordon AIP stuff
basically everything in Season 3 except for Castle of Fu Manchu
The universal season 8 titles (anything from Universal )
Its really sad, but someday we wont have any Volumes at some point, but at least for the time being there are titles to be had ..at some point it will come down to Season 3, 8 and a few hard to gets from other seasons
Thats why the Volumes have a mix of popular and unpopular episodes so future sets wont have the 'bottom of the barrel " like the unpopular 1st Season with something like Colossus and the Headhunters or the Amazing Transparent Men
I happen to like Season 1 and hope Robot Monster is upcoming..
