UPDATE – This exclusive limited edition set is out-of-print. However in July 2019 this film collection was made available as a standard edition Blu-ray set that can be ordered HERE from AllTheAnime.com. This is standard edition Blu-ray is not exclusive to any one retailer, and is available from other retailers as well.
A few weeks ago we announced that we would be bringing the Mobile Suit Gundam Movie Trilogy to Blu-ray for the first-time in the UK in the form of a collection exclusive to our AllTheAnime.com web shop that is limited to 500 units total. Today we are delighted to bring you an unboxing of this set and can also tell you pre-order have begun shipping! We’ve had A LOT of orders for this since we announced this, and while it’s not ‘officially’ out until 27th March, as this is exclusive to our web shop you can expect to receive dispatch emails confirming it has shipped in the coming days (if you haven’t already).
A reminder that if you haven’t already you can order your copy of this from our AllTheAnime.com web shop in the link below
ABOUT THE MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM MOVIE TRILOGY
These movies were designed to be a way to retell the original Mobile Suit Gundam series in a condensed way spread over the course of three films. They have previously been released on DVD in the United Kingdom, but that release has long since been out-of-print, but we are now bringing these to Blu-ray for the first-time in the United Kingdom!
A very interesting detail to note about our release is that it will contain both the 2.0 and 5.1 audio versions of the film. There is a distinct difference between the two in that the 5.1 version (also known as the “Special Edition” of the Movie Suit Gundam Movies) was recorded with a different “rearranged” soundtrack compared to the 2.0 version. So you actually two entirely different viewing experiences of the each film in this set!
The first movie uses existing footage from the series, while Movie II: Soldiers of Sorrow and Movie III: Encounters in Space utilise a mixture of new animation and original footage.
