    Got my order in for Version C. Frogtown I had pre ordered since December from Amazon.de :eek: If I remember correctly they said (months ago) that Frogtown would be also be sold at the main site on the preorder Elvira release, and they will only have around a 100 or so copies in the office. Take it with a grain of salt , but that's what they said. The original bulk was being sold on Amazon. Makes sense because when Frogtown preorder went on sale they didn't even have a shop to sell from.

    Version C does inform blind-buyers that the film has monsters in it.

    That might lead my reasons for Version C being the best choice.

    Put my order in too. Came to $55 AUD which is steep but I rarely drop that much on a movie and I really enjoyed this one. I mean who can't love those titties? Should be a blast to watch this again.

    Oh and went with cover A as it's just more classic to me.

    I got my confirmation emails straight away after placing my order thankfully. That last update made it sound like they're nearly sold out. I wonder how many they have left.

    I also got both confirmation emails immediately, but the actual order email from them I missed at first since it went to my Spam folder.

    I went with cover A, the original poster art I remember. Although cover C was tempting.

    I wish it was reversible cover art, but that's not what the product is made of, so you can't just flip it over.

    I wonder who went for cover B. Not bad, but it's like the original poster with missing parts. That's gotta be the least ordered version. Could be wrong though.

    The Hell Comes to Frogtown choices are kinda confusing. Version B is like the original poster, but I thought that was an alternate to that poster with three people on the cover. Honestly I don't know what the original poster is. But it's certainly not Version A.

    I believe there were two original artwork posters: https://www.cinematerial.com/movies/hell-comes-to-frogtown-i93171

    I think Cover B just looks far better. It may be newly commissioned art, but it looks damn cool.

    Thanks for the info.

    The Cover B looks really good. I love how the artwork wraps around to the back.
