Taken From Digital Bits

And here's something interesting: Fox and MGM have officially announced a Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western Trilogy for Blu-ray release in the U.K. on 6/7, including A Fistful of Dollars, the previously released The Good, The Bad and the Ugly and For a Few Dollars More. In fact, it's available for pre-order now on Amazon.co.uk. I've contacted Fox here in the States for word about a U.S. release and they haven't responded yet, but we'll keep on them to find out. This title ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO BE RELEASED IN THE U.S. TOO! We'll post an update as soon as we have anything new.

U.S. release on June 1st:
http://www.amazon.com/Man-No-Name-Trilogy-Blu-ray/dp/B003EYEF2S/

It's unclear if this is a new transfer, or the same they used for the recent DVDs and the GBU Blu-ray.

The Man With No Namy Trilogy Blu-Ray has already been released in Hong Kong and from what I have understood (but I might be wrong... Tongue ) it should be the same release (perhaps with some audio and/or subtitle differences) that will be available elsewhere in June.
A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More are also available separately from there.

http://dddhouse.com/v3/product_details.php?ProductID=10821  AFOD
http://dddhouse.com/v3/product_details.php?ProductID=10822 FAFDM
http://dddhouse.com/v3/product_details.php?ProductID=10823 Box

Perhaps only Region A.

EDIT:

AFOD MGM vs RHV
FAFDM MGM vs Mondo Home

Got the set and, per Beaver's rave of the FAFDM transfer, dipped into that one first. I'm very disappointed. Black levels seem excessive, and this is another case where skin tones are clearly wrong: much of the time, faces are too red. I guess I'll be getting the Italian import . . .

Of course, he also doesn't mention that the MGM version is still CUT and missing a few seconds of scenes...I have the italian blu ray import, although there's no english track I still know the movie well enough to enjoy it...especially knowing I'm watching what Leone intended.

I should say, another review that thinks the FAFDM disc looks pretty good. On my equipment, it looks the worst. Go figure.

Sherwood, which is a knock-off of the Momitsu.

Interesting comment from Torsten Kaiser over at HTF:
Quote
We worked on FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE on behalf of Paramount who are the distributors of these films in the German-speaking territories in Europe.  The reason why we did not work on TGTB&TU is simply that this title is not part of that licensing arrangement. That film is with MGM/UA.  As for a release on Blu-ray, MGM/UA through Fox have just issued what they already had on DVD - however, this time with the original Mono tracks (at least on two of the three as far as I could make out). Unfortunately, all these titles are originally copyrighted in Italy, so MGM is just a licensee, which makes also the work with low generation elements very difficult.  I hope that this will improve/be revisited some time in the future.  Of Fo$s there was a quite promising master in Italy - however, it (the Blu-ray issued there) has significant issues with what we call subpixel drag - an error where the native pixel information designated for one pixel is picked up by two instead in two different vertical rows causing significant problems for the eyes to "read" the signal a s a sharp image.  Especially on big screens this is very evident.  It is likely an encoding error.
