Blade Runner DVD NOT Released Today

Today was supposed to be the official release of the new 5 DVD version. Apparently, there is some sort of a production issue, and according to Amazon, the DVD is NOT available today:

"Due to production and shipment delays from the studio
impacting all retailers, this title will not be available to ship by the street
date indicated above. We are working with the studio to get this product in
stock as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Isn’t that just like a Ridley Scott production? late, over-budget, but brilliant to look at.

Well, this gives me a few more weeks to figure out which version to get (as we discussed last night in the $200 HD/Blu-Ray).

5_disc_dvd_suitcaseHere’s what I am wrestling with:

Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition) ($55, all the crap included)

Blade Runner (Four-Disc Collector’s Edition) ($23, just the DVDs — but available TODAY)

or, do I wait for the HD/Blu-Ray decision?

Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition) [Blu-ray]   

Blade Runner (Five-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition) [HD DVD]    

Some quandry. And I thought this was going to be my last Blade Runner post . . .
