As promised, Lions Gate is preparing to bring out to retail stores several best-of discs that are only currently available through Time-Life. Also being planned for release at the same time is the long-awaited First Five Years special on DVD, complete with extra footage promised back in February.

Lions Gate hasn't yet announced the street dates or the list prices of these four items, but they have sent the cover art around to us. The Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, and John Belushi releases are identical to the ones at Time Life (where they were sold as a package deal, which will NOT be the case in stores), but since many of our readers prefer to get their releases via Amazon/DVDEmpire/DVDPlanet or to just pick it up at a store, we've got the details for you off the back of the box that Time-Life never provided at their website. Here they are for all four DVDs, which will be sold separately:
