    Man, I need to get a Blu-ray player. Some of those films in Vol. 2 are great! I love Operation Condor!

    Criterion/Janus has the rights to My Lucky Stars. They also have Spiritual Kung Fu, Half a Loaf of Kung Fu, Fearless Hyena 1 & 2, and The Young Master. I assume these were a package deal with Police Story 1 & 2.

    Has the SRP been announced?
    After the 88 Films Supercop I was resigned to not collect any more Jackie titles due to lack of space & funds. May have to reconsider and let the likely subtitles/tech issues slide.

    Armour of God
    Crime Story
    Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars (or Wheels on Meals, but the image looks like a direct lift from a TTLS poster)
    The Protector
    Operation Condor

    Sucks if it is Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars as it means no dedicated Lucky Stars set in the US.
    Pretty strong line up, but it is SF. Fingers crossed it includes all the multiple cuts of some of those films.

You'd think, after the Brotherhood of the Wolf subtitle debacle, that Shout would actually have someone QC the subtitles.
    Anyone who would think that is unfamiliar with how Shout does business.

    From 88 Films...

    Coming soon with a brand new 2K restoration exclusive to this release, Battle Creek Brawl aka The Big Brawl (1980).

    Extras and Specs TBC but it will feature vastly improved audio as well as PQ

    Jackie Chan arrived on American soil with hopes of becoming a superstar in the West and his first ever Hollywood project as a leading man certainly provided him with a notable director in Robert Clouse, the legendary director who took Bruce Lee to the next level with ENTER THE DRAGON (1973). With BATTLE CREEK BRAWL (1980), Director Clouse achieved it, this is prime Jackie - as our man successfully takes on the mafia and romances the gorgeous Playboy cover girl Kristine DeBell. A classic bout of chopsocky on American soil, BATTLE CREEK BRAWL is ready to punch its way into your collection in this new 2K restoration!
