Airwolf Season 1-3 (1984-86) UK Region B Blu-Ray Box Set 2014


Region B Blu-ray

Here it is.. for the first time ever.. Airwolf actually remastered and released on 11 Discs.  The vibrant visual is said to blow the Universal Playback dvd releases right out the water.

But one wonders (after buying ALL the DVD sets) should one now spend more money to get the Blu-ray release
(Note This Remastered Version IS Also On DVD) Here

Region B means its a Region 2 UK/European release and not compatible with American B/R machines unless unlocked.










Well... what was the cheepest place on Release day?
A)  This is what zavvi offer Here note at the time of this blog post their set is/was £69.99
B)  Here is what "apparent"  customers using zavvi have to say about the company Here
They have mixed reviews.. but more bad than god i am afraid...
(and this isn't a case of rivals saying NO use these instead, they just apparently suck)
We Shall See...

UPDATE:
So far we have had 2 Airwolf fans let us know that they "have" used zavvi in the past and had NO problems at all.. all we can do now is wait and see...
(and we will update this blog post as soon as they get an item to us) 
Update: 15th May and still no shipping confirmation email as of yet... 
Update: 18th May and still no news... or word from that company.... 
Update: 20th May had an email saying its been shipped....
Update: 22nd May It arrived, in a big padded jiffy bag (inside another jiffy bag)
So we would recommend them :)


IMPORTANT NOTE:
We may of found a problem with this remaster release ...
(which is down to Universal OR Fabulous)   Not the sellers.

As you know it was made for Tv and at times the screen will go black then come back on.. This we know is from the Ad Break Moments right....
But that doesn't explain why their are scenes "MISSING"   For example  "Bite Of The Jackal"
18.39 (approx)  into the Original Episode & Playback Releases..
Santini Fires a Flare Gun.. then says   "I Don't Like The Look Of This"
That line and the following 3/4 scenes are CUT on the HD release and the Blu-ray... WTF
(now im wondering how many other scenes are cut)
And this has also been verified as a problem by my self.. to also be true with the HD-DVD :'(
we have emailed them to see what they say...
You can  follow that issue at the bottom of the HD-DVD Review  Here
