Hey all, taking a quick break away from the Kung Fu Christmas in order to post about a tidbit of information that floated into our inbox. The good folks over at Shout! Factory have released the latest information on the next Mystery Science Theater 3000 boxset! No doubts, this next MST boxset should prove to be as great as their previous compilations have been as well.

Well known at this point for delivering these sets with excellent special features and colorful menus, this next set is even more meaningful due to the fact that these episodes have never actually been released on DVD at any point. The boxset looks to include the following episodes: King Dinosaur, The Castle Of Fu Manchu , Code Name: Diamond Head, and Last Of The Wild Horses.

As with all of the releases so far, the boxset also includes a handful of special features on each disc. Those special features appear to be as follows:

  • Introduction By Frank Conniff
  • The Incredible Mr. Lippert
  • Vintage MST3K Promos
  • Life After MST3K: Kevin Murphy
  • Code Name: Quinn Martin
  • DARKSTAR: Robots Don’t Need SAG Cards
  • 4 Exclusive Mini-Posters By Artist Steve Vance
  • I am particularly interested in that Kevin Murphy (the voice of Tom Servo) interview, and the rest just sounds like icing on the cake! This set should be hitting DVD shelves on March 27th, so keep an eye out! We will of course try to cover the release right here on Varied Celluloid!
