This is a five-disc set, with two 4K UHD discs and 3 standard Blu-ray discs. I, Paul Rudoff, receive two mentions in the set. The first is at the end of the new Ghostbusters Fan Commentary track, and the second is a "special thanks" credit at the end of the Nobel Prize Aspirations deleted scene, which I provided.

Unbeknownst to most, only a limited number of units were produced. Once retailers sold out of their inventory, there would be no more available. I noticed this a mere two months after the set was first released. So, I asked my source at Sony about it, and this is what he had to say: "This was a limited edition, so as the units sell out, that will be reflected at retail. It's possible that units may shift from retailer to retailer as they sell through." Prices for this set have already skyrocketed on Amazon Marketplace.

Incomplete Special Features
The following is a list of special features that are incomplete or edited. More details can be found in this Spook Central article.

Missing Special Features
The following is a list of items that have appeared on previous home video releases that are not included in this release. This list does not include items partially missing from this release, such as portions of the deleted scenes or the beginning and ending of the GB2 EPK. This list does include items that need to be redone, such as the oil painting filter image galleries taken from the 2005 DVD instead of the 1999 DVD. Of course, this list won't include items that have never been released to the general public at all, such as the GB1 1999 DVD Press Kit VHS. Also, this is all just on-disc content. I'm not including any packaging bonuses like the liner notes from the 1999 Ghostbusters 1 and 2 DVDs, the Scrapbook from the 2005 DVD set, or the Digibook from the 2014 set.

Due to technical limitations, and outdated technology, the video commentary from 1999 DVD and the PlayStation 3 theme from the GB1 2009 Blu-Ray will never appear on any other releases. The video commentary is no great loss as the silhouettes hardly moved, and the PS3 theme can be downloaded from the 2009 Blu-ray page here on Spook Central.
