Do you remember at some point William Stout put his Robies chicken labels for sale on ebay?! :wink:

Really is cool though that they managed to get these made.

Yeah, just not so long ago it had been made clear that it was not possible to make Lundgren and Langella-based movie figures...

What wasn't clear to me before was like Super 7 who took over the MOTU Classics line from MattyCollector label/brand got the MOTU license from Mattel to handle make their line independently from Mattel (like when studios like Fox and MGM sublicense the rights of their catalogue titles to indie labels who will would make BR editions of our DL classics), so they put a lot more personal investment to produce those. And it probably took some time and effort to clear the movie likeness with William Stout for the costumes (who didn't give all his rights back then, which is why his designs were not in the 2015 art book), and of course Dolph and Langella...

MOTU is getting its 5th soundtrack score edition from the label "NoteForNote"! :shock:
https://notefornotemusic.com/products/m ... l-conti-cd

Limited edition of 500 CDs. Pre-orders just began and it will ship March 11.
This edition features different cover art as well as newly commissioned liner notes by composer Edwin Wendler. For the notes, we wanted to get a composer's point of view on the score (which is something we want to do more of on future projects). Disc one is presented as the full score while disc two features the original 1987 soundtrack album.

This time they're using Jean Mascii's masterpiece poster used in France and the UK (if like me you think he even outdid Drew Stuzan's then that's saying something)
