The Mysterious GB DVD Box Set

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 25, 2004 at 8:51 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Reviews & Merch, Home Video

On 5/20/2002, I started a conversation on the old Spook Central MSN Group about a mysterious GB DVD box set image I found in a Google image search (the image shown above). What made it so mysterious is that it looked nothing like the set that was released here in the United States in 2000 or 2001. That set, which looked like this ...


... consisted of the 1999 GB1 & GB2 DVDs in a slipsleeve with the same cover artwork on the outside (according to "Ectoman", and from what I've seen of it wrapped up in the store).

I asked if any one knew what DVD box set the mysterious photo is the packaging of? The picture clearly has the DVD & CTHV logos on it.

Raffaele "BiggBoss" Ruffaldi replied: "I was browsing the web looking for a DVD when I've found on a site the item you refer to for sale. Unfortunately I did not bookmark the URI and lost it but I do remember that is is a GB DVD special box containing both DVDs plus a bonus CD with screensavers, backgrounds and stuff... It was an import from Japan. I don't have a full TOC of the CD unfortunately. I'll try to find the URI again"

Apparently he's not been able to find it online again, and I certainly haven't, so I thought I'd post this information here in case anyone has some information. If not, then this will be here for posterity and curiosity-seekers.

I think that box set was Japans version of the 15th anniversary dvd edition. I could be wrong; speaking of Japan they got Gb1 and Gb2 on Superbit. Lets hope we get Superbit dvd when Sony releases the 20th anniverary DVD

That what Raffaele said. I'm hoping that someone who bought it will come forth and post large and better pictures and more information about it.
