From April to October 2004, Universal released six boxed sets, dubbed "Legacy Collections," each devoted the one of the studio's classic monsters [Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Wolf Man and Gill-man (a.k.a. "the creature from the black lagoon")]. On September 2, 2014, Universal is re-releasing each of these six sets in new, slimmer packaging, this time as "Complete Legacy Collections." This boxed set, "Universal Classic Monsters: The Complete 30-Film Collection," is a combination/consolidation of these six re-releases, along with the puzzling inclusion of the 1943 version of `The Phantom of the Opera'.Read more ›

If you missed out on the 2004 Legacy sets, then pick up this set now! I only had the Dracula one, but on this set Dracula is a vast improvement; looking amazingly crisp and clean along with it's sequels. I did some brief previews of all the movies and I gotta say that I'm really quite surprised how great all the movies look in this DVD set. Especially the main movies, which use the blu ray restorations. They all look and sound fantastic. On some the sequels there's very minimal dirt/dust specs, but they're still great looking. I've never seen any of the "Abbot and Costello" flicks, but while doing some previewing I found them damn entertaining and cannot wait to get to them. I know folks are upset on not getting a Blu ray version, but quite honestly, that's not a problem for me at all. The transfers on all the movies here are the best on DVD. I'm just happy to finally own all the Universal Monster movies in one collection.I was actually pretty hesitant to drop $95+ bucks on this DVD set, but it looks like I made the right choice. I mean, come on! All 31 movies(Spanish Dracula included) on one set?! Pick this bad boy up!!

I found the packaging to be superb. Its not weak or flimsy at all. Its nice and sturdy and the front comes with a bit of embossing. So it should hold up nicely in your collection. There's also a booklet included in the set, which is the same as the blu ray "Essential" set. I cannot stress enough how much I really, really love the design of this set.

If you are a Universal Classic Monsters fan and do not own any of these films. this collection is a must. If you have some of the films, a better choice may be to buy the rest individually and save money on the box set. To me, the absence of the Blu-Ray format is a non-issue, but if that's important to you, you might want to wait for a possible future release of the entire collection on Blu-Ray (there is already an abbreviated Blu-Ray edition consisting of the 8 original titles only, along with the same informative booklet included with this DVD set).

If you are like me and don't need Blu-Ray, this box set has everything you need, brought together in a nice package. It doesn't have the cool busts of Frankenstein, Dracula and The Wolf Man that came with the earlier Legacy box set, but it has the advantage of being composed of all single-sided discs, instead of the reportedly unstable double-sided discs provided with the earlier set. All the bonus features of the various earlier releases are included here, as are 4 additional movies: ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO) MEET THE MUMMY, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE INVISIBLE MAN, and the Claude Rains version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (I would have preferred the original silent Lon Chaney version of the latter film).

This set also includes the restored version of DRACULA, complete with bloodcurdling screams from Renfield and Dracula's prolonged death groan. For some reason, some releases of DRACULA reverted to the earlier watered-down, edited version, and I'm happy to hear the complete soundtrack again restored here.

One omission for which I was actually grateful was that the promos for VAN HELSING, included with the lavish original Legacy box set, were left off this collection.

i would have loved if this was a blu-ray release but you take the good with the bad. i had the old legacy sets that where double sided dvd's, though i never had a problem playing them i just do not like double sided dvd's. these are all single sided dvd's that are a big plus to me owning. the box is nice and hard not flimsy. over all this is a nice box set that i am happy to own and knowing that these are not double sided dvd's that i can watch these for years to come!
