Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Amazon Listing Reveals Shout!'s First MST3K Title, Date & Cost!

Late-October release makes this set a shoe-in for your Halloween party!

Posted by David Lambert
This past January it was announced that the license for Mystery Science Theater 3000 home video releases would be moving from Rhino Home Video, where DVD releases have resided for the last eight years, over to a new home at the Shout! Factory. Since then, the folks from Shout! haven't revealed the release plans for their first package, planning a big announcement event in July at the San Diego Comic Con. We'll probably have to wait until then to get all the specifics of the first release, including the collectible packaging and tons of bonus material (along with the names of the 4 included episodes) but overnight a pre-order listing has appeared at, and it contains some of the basics!

The listing shows that the title is called Mystery Science Theater 3000 - 20th Anniversary Edition. It will be a 4-disc package that is available starting on October 28th...just in time for Halloween. The cost is shown as $69.99 SRP, but as of this writing you can pre-purchase it from Amazon for just $48.99! That discounted price, of course, is subject to change without notice, based on decisions made by Amazon...but that's what it is right now, as I write this up.

No other details are provided at Amazon other than the expected basics (full-screen video, English audio), and cover art is not posted there yet, either. Stay tuned, though, and we'll update you with any further information that becomes available!
