With expedited shipping and import duties the Lime Green Set cost a lot of money, but it's worth every penny
I'm happy that you're happy. But I've reached a different conclusion about this set.
Is the mystery disc terrific? Absolutely. Love the deleted scenes and don't care that it's not visually stunning. The material is. I also agree that some of the intros are very interesting and worth multiple viewings.
But I'm Peggy Lee on the remainder of the set ... is that all there is? Exactly who is the intended customer for this set? Lynch fans?
Eraserhead? Got it.
Eraserhead Soundtrack? Already had the MP3. Perhaps the world needs a Eraserhead Dance track but I don't.
Short Films of David Lynch? Got it
The Elephant Man? Got it.
Blue Velvet? Got it.
Wild At Heart? Got it.
Industrial Symphony #1? Have a laserdisc port of this and the quality of the new is not much better and the widescreen just doesn't make any sense.
Dumbland? I think it's well named.
Mystery Disc? Terrific.
So, my take is that Lynch is either counting on:
1. New to Lynch buyers who will take the chance on an expensive SD DVD set. (Doubtful, particularly with Blu-Ray possibilties)
2. Selling the same stuff to Lynch fans yet again with the tease of something new
The natural question is why isn't more stuff like the mystery disc included and the old been there have that not included? As many have mentioned, why not deal for FWWM: deleted scenes? Why not Hotel Room? Why not On The Air?
The answer I come up with isn't pleasant for the loyal Lynch fan.
