I read on here it was discontinued/limited time only, and as I hadn't gotten around to collecting FMAB, thinking I could hold off until the box, so I went out to look for 1. Seems that everywhere I go has no Bluray C1, only 2-3 and the DVD only has the new plain C1.

Seems strange, as I remember these places having C1 on Bluray. Was JB and Gametraders ordered to pull them or something? I didn't expect to have such a bugger of a time finding it, seeing what old stuff some JB have.

^ I would have thought that too, but it was very common prior to the DVD going matte.

Foil stock has always been stated as limited edition/first pressing only. We actually did a second run with the foil very quietly.

So there you have it. it's no longer foil Smile

You can probably still find foil collections at stores that haven't sold out of them yet.

I finally found a Bluray Foil C1 after searching about 3 areas and several JBHifi/Gametraders.

Also picked up C2 and 3. I have a question about 3 though. How come the prints on the disc and region changed?

1/2 are AB with 'Part 1, Disc 1' on White and Red discs, Collection 3 is B only, with a transmutation circle saying Disc 5 and 6.

FUNimation changed from releasing Brotherhood in both regions A and B to just A. I believe the reason is that the company that was selling Brotherhood in the U.K. chose to stop doing so (due to poor sales). As a result Madman has to now author their own Brotherhood Blu-Ray discs.

With that, you'd think Madman'd change it so it displayed 'Disc 05' and 'Disc 06' on the menus as well. However, I think that Madman just removed the advertisement at the start of the disc and published the existing/remaining FUNi disc contents to new Blu-Ray discs, making them Region B discs. Madman is doing the same with Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid as well... Well, last time I'd heard they were.
