Are the "on request" titles DVD-Rs?

I've ordered the two above,so will keep you updated Jonny.  :D

According to their site they're dvd 9 and in an interview Jérôme Soulet (head of Gaumont's video department) states these are regular,professionally made dvd's but that these films have not had an extensive remastering/restoration.

No extras as well.
But Gaumont's plan is to release lots of unavailable titles like this.

Maybe the most popular titles could be released later remastered (according to Jérôme Soulet).

Price for these is 12-13 Euro.

Just watched some of Attack of the Robots and I would say it looks ok and it's definitely much better than my US tv-rip.. 

Gaumont warned us that the (digital I suppose) masters they used for these weren't that great and it shows.

It's actually mentioned on their site which ones have the better masters.

If you're a fan you need this though.

Btw the disc doesn't seem to be anamorphic so I had to zoom.

It's supposed to be a dvd 9,doesn't look like a dvd-r anyway.

Watched Seven Golden Men yesterday and it actually looked pretty good,it's a dual layer presentation of what appears to be an unrestored hd master?
