This past fall we exclusively revealed
that Fabulous Films will release Tales of the Gold Monkey - The Complete Series
in the United States sometime during the second quarter of this year. We talked to those Fabulous folks today, and confirmed that the release date for this 6-disc set will be June 8th
. And, as an Amazon.com pre-order listing
has revealed, for this particular title Fabulous has struck a distribution agreement with Shout! Factory. Cost is $49.97 SRP for 990 minutes, but you can lock in your copy right away at a nice discount.
Amazon doesn't give any further details, but our conversation with Fabulous revealed that the bonus material should be the same as the U.K. release of the same title, including a collectible booklet and interviews with actor Stephen Collins, actress Caitlin O'Heaney, directer Harvey Laidman and producer/writer Tom Greene. The U.K. release also boasts Audio Commentaries on 5 Episodes, Series Synopsis, Stills Gallery, Caitlin’s Original Costume Gallery, and an Artifacts Gallery. Package design should be similar to the U.K. version as well, but finalized USA artwork hasn't been released so far. Stay tuned and we'll bring that to you just as soon as we can!
