Robocop (1987, 103 min., Rated R) - A sadistic crime wave is sweeping across America. In Old Detroit, the situation is so bad a private corporation has assumed control of the police force. An ambitious young executive and his research team create a law enforcement cyborg from the body of a slain officer. Prepare yourself for non-stop action and adventure in one of the most explosive sci-fi stories you'll ever witness. Directed by Paul Verhoeven (Starship Troopers). "Robocop 2" (1990, 116 min., Rated R) - Peter Weller and Nancy Allen return for more crime-fighting action in the sequel to the contemporary sci-fi classic "RoboCop." This time, the "Future of Law Enforcement" is pitted against his newer, bigger and more powerful replacement. Directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back). "Robocop 3" (1993, 105 min., Rated PG-13) - Omni Consumer Products, the conglomerate that designed RoboCop, now owns Detroit. The company plans to demolish one of the city's largest neighborhoods to build a gleaming city of the future--after an army of ruthless mercenaries finishes throwing everyone out of their homes. But RoboCop, sworn to protect the public, joins forces with a band of urban freedom fighters battling to save their neighborhood.

I was skeptical about this when I first saw it at the store, as I already owned the fantastic Criterion edition DVD. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the new MGM unrated version found in the Trilogy boxed set is well worth it. So here is a review for people who already own the Criterion disc and are wondering if they should shell out their hard earned cash for this newer DVD.
Here are the differences I found between the new disc and the Criterion one...
PLUSES:
a.. Anamorphic widescreen. The Criterion disc was not anamorphic. As a result, the picture on the MGM disc is a lot less pixellated than the Criterion one. The color is also more saturated.
b.. New sound mix. The Criterion disc was mixed in Dolby surround. The new mix is in Dolby 5.1, and they obviously had fun remixing it. The surrounds are split and very directional. The sound is really an improvement in every way (see (d)).
c.. It's the same unrated cut that was on the Criterion disc.
d.. They fixed some of the excrutiatingly bad sound edits that were on the Criterion disc. Although Criterion had re-edited the violent footage back into the movie, they neglected to remix the sound for those moments, ie. they didn't remix the sound to blend the new footage. On the new MGM disc, they FINALLY fixed this. Now the new footage sounds like it was SUPPOSED to be there.
e.. As one reviewer mentioned before, the director's commentary on the MGM disc is new and completely different than the one on the Criterion disc (ie. don't throw away your Criterion disc).
f.. We finally have the sequels in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby 5.1. This is a plus or a minus depending on if you enjoy them or not!

Well I have to say, I'm a huge RoboCop fan and I was excited to get this on Blu-Ray. I didn't find any extras on the case, so I thought it would be on the BR itself, But no dice. The DVD has more Xtras than the Blu-Ray. The 2nd and 3rd have only a trailer and being a being a huge Robocop fan,I was hoping they would have a lost featurette or new Commentaries. I was disappointed in this purchase and I wouldn't recommend this, I'd suggest to pick up the first single disc of the first movie. Oh well, Live and Learn. I'm keeping this though since I already bought it.

Actually, the answer is yes right now... you can pay more not to have that ridiculous 3rd Jetpack Ninja atrocity by just getting the newly released standalone RoboCop (Unrated Director's Cut) [Blu-ray], - the first Robocop included in this product trilogy collection is also the SAME EACT disc/artwork as the one from that product. I own both of them. (not to mention other Robocop DVD versions/steelbook and never-ending releases of the same film that they want us to keep consuming... can't wait for newly restored 8K Trilogy release 10 years from now!)

I just found out that they released this trilogy collection in May of this year (2014). Before, the blu-ray trilogy collection were out of print and very hard to find; people are still trying to sell them for over a hundred dollars. Thankfully, there's no need to be ripped off by those versions because they re-released this trilogy pack replacing the first Robocop with the newly restored HD version - so that old trilogy package is obsolete. Make sure it's the trilogy pack where Robocop has a side profile looking to the left (the old one, he's looking to the right)

The reason I bought this was because I really wanted to watch Robocop 2 in HD and I couldn't believe it was so difficult to find, not to mention, people were selling that standalone overpriced too.

I'm really thankful for this re-release trilogy package making it easily available for all of us now at a bargain price.

so you can buy it for under ten bucks anywhere (and we all know it not only is a bad transfer but has NONE of the great bonus features available on the normal DVDs)..so all you get for your huge investment is a bare bones 2 and 3...

I can't believe I got suckered into buying this but I couldn't imagine them doing this at that price...fool me once...well I'll wait in the future until some other person does the experimenting.

The one thing that doesn't seem to be getting any fanfare, with the new release of this trilogy from MGM, is the fact that the first movie, is in fact, the UNCUT DIRECTOR's CUT, that was presently, till now, only available on the out of print (and pricey) Criterion version of this DVD.
Oddly enough, even the new trilogy packaging and extras, don't go out of their way to press, what you'd think would be a GREAT selling point, almost as if the decision to use the directors cut, was a last minute thing.
Funny enough, even the commentary (which, unfortunately, is NOT the commentary present on the Criterion disc) was made, with the director and crew, watching the theatrical version of the movie, as they keep referring to this fact, and discussing the deleted scenes, EVEN as we, the viewers, are watching the very scenes that they are saying are missing in this version. It also amazes me, as to how they managed to sync up the commentary to the cut film, over top of the uncut film, without any lag or dead spots, where the cut scenes are replaced, but they did it.
One thing that MGM did fail in though, is that they placed back in the cut scenes, but didn't bother to colour correct, or do anything, to make the scenes run seamlessly, as you can always spot the new scenes, by the sudden loss of quality in the picture, which, in itself, is another reason that you'd think that MGM would have indicated that this was the uncut version, and explained (as most movies that add in extra scenes, but don't bother trying to fix them up) that the extra scenes have not been cleaned up, so that the viewer doesn't think that the film has glitches, or that MGM's quality is inconsistent (as the overall picture quality is pretty descent, except for the extra scenes, that is).
