MPI Mailing
« on: December 10, 2003, 04:27:13 AM »
I just went down for today's mail (hey, it's been a busy afternoon/night) and I discovered that my copy of the MPI mailing SG Update mentioned would be arriving soon did.

Nice picture from the DS Reunion DVD...

Hopefully the interview with Matt Hall on DVD Collection 10 will be something that we haven't already seen...

And SG wasn't kidding when they said MPI was going to be drastically discounting the VHS tapes. $5.98 a tape! Whoa!
To think I foolishly paid $19.98 for mine. Who knew they'd fall to $12.98 - and now $5.98?
Pretty soon MPI might just be giving them away!  [lghy]

MB, is this just for episode tapes? Or is this for the reunion thing the cast did this summer at fest?

If you mean the $5.98 sale, it's simply for the epiosde tapes, Patti.

There's no price listed for the Return To Collinwood CD - simply an ad that says it will be available in 2004.  ;)
(The picture I referred to from the Reunion DVD was from the Directors Guild reunion at the Museum of Television and Radio in Hollywood.)

Since we moved, we haven't had cable and have been buying the tapes on a pace with Sci Fi. NOW that I was down to the last 5 I needed, they drop the price. Anyway, I'm still celebrating I will have the entire run between the red and blue tapes. By the way, the blue or "Classic Series" might still be of interest as a lot of the episodes have those charming clapboard moments, a few seconds at the opening that don't appear on the DVDs.  ;)

Yeah.  And if you enroll in the DVD Club now, you'll receive the "hypnotizing and handsome" Barnabas Bobblehead doll FREE!

AND, after you complete your first year (6 sets at the retail price of $59.98) you'll be able to get the EXCLUSIVE Dark Shadows Collector's Casket for only $1.  (Holy shit!)

Hey, I can't imagine why I got this flyer in the mail.  Have never purchased anything from MPI.  Must be that Fest.  Did anyone else who went to the Fest get the flyer??  Seems you can't go anywhere or do anything any more without getting put on a list.  Last week I got a solicitation from Women's Care Cottage.  What I'm REALLY hoping for though, is the chance to buy into one of Roger Davis' real estate deals (at a discount rate).   ;)

That's what it is. Once you've been added to the Fest's mailing list, you're automatically added to MPI's.

True.  :-   But I actually look on this particular case as a good thing.  :)

     I have ordered many things from MPI and have never received any mailings ever.  Maybe they don't like me or my money.

Gee, that seems really strange, onyx_treasure. I've never bought anything directly from MPI and I've been receiving their maillings since 1990. One would think that people who buy from them would automatically be added to whichever mailing list corresponds closest to their purchase.  :-

Have you at least received a DS catalogue or flyer with some of your orders?

MB,
     MPI has only sent me a catalog when I call and request one.  The last one I received was the 2000 catalog.  I guess I should call them and request a newer addition.  The catalog before that was the 30th anniversary catalog.  I don't understand why I do not receive any mailings since I have ordered many tapes from them. :-   I depend on this site to keep me up to date on what is currently available.

     Great Mark!  My two favorite actors.  I can just hear Dr. Smith's alliteration. :-*

Is there any artwork shown for "Return to Collinwood", out of interest?

Just a photo of a fog laden Collinwood. This particular photo has appeared in one of the past calendars, as well as one or more of KLS's books.
