German Blu-ray of the Sign O' The Times movie + its 90 minute documentary "Prince - The Peach & Black Times"

Other thread auto-locked so here's part 4! (part 1 / part 2 / part 3)

.

And we start of with some important news:

Fantastic news for Prince fans who were slow of the mark with Turbine Media’s recent super deluxe of the concert film of Sign ‘O’ The Times. That out-of-print set was tremendous (see the unboxing video) but is now going to be made available again, albeit in a new more compact ‘mediabook’ edition. The content remains the same (restored movie, dolby atmos audio, documentary, hours of bonus interviews etc.) the only difference is that this is no longer a 12″ x 12″ large format package and you get a smaller booklet and no poster.

.
I imagine some of you may actually prefer this DVD-sized package which can slot next to other similar deluxe editions. This ships on 16 December, but just remember it’s still a Germany exclusive and the DVDs and blu-ray are therefore still region locked to regions ‘2’ and ‘B’ respectively.

I've been on the fence about this release because it is extremely pricey. And I can't tell if it counts as an official release or not - it isn't the Estate's work (which may be a benefit) and I know this movie had different ownership, but forgot the specifics of it all. That and the fact that there doesn't seem to be any clips of the documentary on YouTube means it's more or less a blind purchase.

The one good thing I notice is that I have yet to see anyone who purchased complaining about it.

funny, while it's quite hard to get the original Limited Edition online for a reasonable price, here in Austrian stores they seem to still have plenty. I just bought two more in Saturn in Innsbruck for 59.99 each smile

Vanglorious... this is protected by the red, the black, and the green. With a key... sissy!

It is European only. I asked that when the original release was first announced because I was concerned about DVD regions.

My copy just arrived and I could not be happier! Every aspect of this collection is impressive. The interviews alone make this worth having. I cannot recommend this product any higher!!

How does this set compare in quality to the Japanese set released a few years back? I have this set and the German one on order but I don't want to fork out all that money just for interviews if the main footage is much the same quality.
