After I bought them all separately for $200, they release a Boxset with a booklet... and a feature length documentary that sold separately.

I did get nice 'drawn art' special slipcovers though, which are way better than this new art (and a whole bunch of huge posters).
But I want that booklet!

Reason why Child's Play 1988 is not 4K UHD
MGM would not license 4K UHD version to Arrow for UK release.

 
Child's Play in the UK the original is a Warner title as far as I'm aware. My blu-ray clearly has the Warner logo on it.
It was 20th Century Fox not warner who previously was the distributor for Child's Play 1988 Blu-ray releases in UK since 2012 and that distribution deal expired on June 30, 2020
UK Blu-ray from 2012 has MGM Logo and does not have Warner Logo

Warner had distribution for the DVD release in 2004 of Child's Play but did not have distribution with the later Blu-ray releases in UK

The UK Blu-ray Amaray/FuturePak/SteelBook releases was from Fox

MGM films some was distributed by Warner and Fox in UK


Child's Play 2 and the later films are from Universal not MGM


MGM is now owned by Amazon
It's MGM who decide if a film from their catalogue is given a licence to another label and that's not decided by warner
MGM would not give a licence to do a 4K UHD release in UK to Arrow they only allowed the existing 2012 UK Blu-ray be used

Warner has distribution for MGM films after the Fox deal ended but If another label wants to do a release of a mgm film that requires permission from MGM and is a separate licence

I think Warner have distribution rights to pre-1986 titles from MGM. God it's complicated. No wonder 90% of ITV titles from the 80's will never see the light of day again.
