Very happy we are back on track with these re-releases. Though I am bummed out that Shout! has not repaired - or even acknowledged - the issue with Prince of Space. I understand a recall and reprint might not be financially justifiable, but at least correct the VOD versions. Maybe when Rifftrax gets around to selling it.

An MST3k fan on Facebook and Twitter just received their copy of Shout's Volume 8 re-issue. He just provided me the rights licensing info:
Hobgoblins (C) Copyright 1988 Rick Sloane Monster A-Go Go: under license from Bill Rebane on behalf of The MacDonald Trust The Dead Talk Back (C) Copyright 2018 Wade Williams LLC
The Phantom Planet appears to be public domain, as there is no licensing info for it on the back of the DVD cover.
Hobgoblins Revisited Myron Natwick Talks Back Bill Rebane Speaks
Myron Natwick played Raymond Milburn in The Dead Talk Back.
At DragonCon, Daniel Griffith of Ballyhoo Films told me there was unseen materials that he filmed for his bonus materials for the 2009 Shout Factory Special Edition release of Hobgoblins that would make the cut for the MST3k re-issue.
As I suspected, Wade Williams is now the current owner of Dead Talk Back, having acquired it from Sinister Cinema years ago.
Not surprised that Bill Rebane has ownership of Monster A-Go Go. He told me in an e-mail exchange years ago that he was the one who licensed it, as well as Giant Spider Invasion, to Rhino for the Volume 8 and Volume 10 (10.2) original MST3k releases.
