First just allow me to say that I've been lurking on the boards for a few years and have been an MST fan since season 8. I've just now gotten around to registering so I can begin joining the conversations!
Anyway, here's my question: I've been working on completing my Rifftrax DVD collection using the list on mst3k.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_DVD_releases as a guideline. I noticed that there are still a couple of releases listed as TBA:
RiffTrax Presents RiffTrax Shorts with Bridget Nelson & Mary Jo Pehl Samurai Cop Summer Shorts Beach Party
Also, it looks like the most recent release was November 29 of last year.
So I guess this is a mutli-part question. 1. How accurate is this list? (i.e., is it being updated regularly) 2. Are Rifftrax DVD's released on a quasi-regular schedule? (Or are they still be produced at all?) 3. Are there ETA's from another source for these three releases?
While I don't have full answers to the latter two questions, I believe the Bridget and Mary Jo shorts DVD was announced to be in the works during the last Kickstarter.

All the DVDs are set to release since Kickstarter backers were promised them, and backers at lower tiers can add them and have already been charged. I assume we will see them shortly after the Doctor Who show wraps this year's live shows.
I don't think there is any schedule to Rifftrax DVDs, I think they just happen when they happen. I really wish RiffTrax Live: Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny got a DVD release. I'd have thought that a December 2015 show would see a DVD release in December 2016 but all they did was a digital release March of last year.

The DVD version of "Santa Clause and the Ice Cream Bunny" is my most recent acquisition and I watched it Saturday afternoon. That is one STRANGE movie. Fortunately, Mike, Kevin, and Bill gave me plenty to laugh with them about.
