25-Disc Ultimate 'Firehouse' Package Also Still Available Directly from Time Life

Order this title from Amazon.com

Back in October, in one of our updates about Time Life's direct-only release of The Real Ghostbusters - The Complete Series on DVD, we mentioned a separate retailer release of The Real Ghostbusters - Volume 1 was coming. Some online retailers, such as Walmart.com, had begun listing a January 20th retail release of the separate package, but Time Life had not generally announced that yet, and hadn't solicited the title to the entire range of retailers yet, either.

Now the word seems to be getting around to more retailers, including Amazon, who set up a pre-order listing this past Saturday for The Real Ghostbusters - Volume 1. Our sincere thanks to all of our readers who wrote in to make sure we had seen it, including Kate Wagner (whose e-mail arrived first).

The Amazon listing shows a different release date, of January 27th, and we've confirmed that this is the correct one (not the twentieth). List price is $39.98 for a 5-disc set that contains the first 30 episodes (780 minutes), plus extras that - as we previously reported - include a booklet, episode introductions, 5 on-camera commentaries and a featurette.

We had also previously said that the separate retail release would not come enclosed in the SteelBook packaging, but now we've been informed that it will. In fact, the package art at Amazon and other retailers shows the SteelBook (see above).

Of course, the biggest fans of the show probably want the better value, the exclusive "firehouse" set for The Real Ghostbusters - The Complete Series, which is available right now directly from Time Life, with all 5 volumes packaged together in SteelBooks and enclosed in a collectible package. My copy was supposed to be waiting for me under the tree, but I couldn't hold off and I'm already enjoying it!
