At the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo on April 17, 2010, Steve Sansweet said, “We have been at work for a couple of years working on – I won’t call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff – but a very full set of all six movies on Blu-ray with lots of extra material. We’re finding all kinds of scenes from dailies that have never been seen before. Beyond all of those things that you know about… there are some real treasures.” He also mentioned that, “We’re not ready to announce exactly when it’s coming out, but it won’t be in the too distant future.”
