The Phantasm Sphere (£34.99) features the five discs housed in a shiny, silver facsimile of the razor-pronged killer orbs seen in the films (see our earlier news here). Limited to 20,000 units only, the sphere itself comes in a silver 'Easter egg'-style carton and will be exclusive to this UK Region 2 release.
The Phantasm Digipak (£29.99) comes in a silver-effect mirrorboard box fronted by an eye-dazzling lenticular image of the Phantasm series' arch-villain, the Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) holding one of the deadly spheres.
The four films – Phantasm (cert. 15, £16.99), Phantasm II (cert. 18, £14.99), Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (cert. 18, £14.99) and Phantasm IV: Oblivion (cert. 18, £14.99) – will also be released on the same day as individual single-disc DVD editions.
