I like this, hope it's a good transfer considering how old these movies are.

The films include:

Dracula (1931)
Drácula [Spanish-language version] (1931)
Frankenstein (1931)
The Mummy (1932)
The Invisible Man (1933)
Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
The Wolf Man (1941)
Phantom of the Opera (1943)
Creature from the Black Lagoon (3-D, 1954)

This is awesome, the only HD version of the Wolf Man available before was BD LIVE access to the original Wolf Man with a purchase of the recent Wolfman BD.

Woohoo!

they are cleaning these movies up and restoring them completely. you should see how great the other restoration jobs have been. 'all quiet on the western front' the 'buck privates' and many more look fantastic. the have fixed the soundtracks and removed all dirt and scratches. it's fantastic what they have done with these movies and other 100 years of universal titles as well.

That's my question, too. I've been planning for some time to add the editions with the sequels to my library, but having these classics on Blu-ray is really tempting. I guess I'll just have to get both the BD and DVD sets. Sigh.

In the history of home video, Universal has never, ever released every one of the classic monsters movies in one "universal" set so I wouldn't expect to see one now. After such a long wait for them to finally appear on blu-ray, I doubt they're planning such a mega-set in the near future and I feel very lucky that we're getting this. I was fearful we'd only get a trio of titles at best. This set makes perfect sense as it contains the first film to all their classic monsters (and we also get The Bride of Frankenstein and supposedly the alternate Spanish Dracula flick) as well as the The Creature in the Black Lagoon in real 3D, a dream come true for me. I can't wait for this set. And if they eventually bring out a sequels box, all the better!

I already bought the DVDs now I'm going to have to Double Dip, but I will wait for when the price is right.

Why is it that the Gong Show comes to mind?

Amazon UK has this set for sale for $53.25 American cash. (today's exchange rate) Don't know if it's region free or not. Also most UK sets come with individual plastic cases rather than cardboard sleeves.

Yes they have! These same eight Universal Classic Monster Movies were released in a regular DVD box set back in 2000. I bought mine from Tower Records back then. I also have the Blu-Ray box set that was released on Oct. 2, 2012 and it is "excellent Mr. Renfield, excellent!" Check out the review I wrote about it here on Amazon! I also hope that the sequels to these movies which were released in the Legacy Collection DVD's will soon see Blu-Ray release as well.
