Amazon.co.uk has a page up for a Police Story 1 & 2 Limited set, expected on Aug 20th.
1. Hurrah!
2. Wait, where's the third one? Fortune Star announced 4k remaster of 1-3!

Mirmax seems to still have the UK and US rights to Police Story 3

What a shame as the third is superior to the second one, which feels like it took criticism of there not being enough plot in the first one to heart. Now it adds a dull plot and far less exciting action scenes.

Great they’re putting these out, though disappointed that these won’t get the full MoC treatment like Drunken Master got

It looks like they've gotten the treatment, just not the branding

Ah, the bonus features weren’t up when I saw this earlier so I thought it might be pretty bare-bones. I know the idea that Jackie Chan films are actually comic masterpieces worthy of discussion among the greats has become pretty widely held, but I appreciated some label somewhere in the world putting it in their prestige collection to really speak to that, so I’m still a little sad it couldn’t continue, even if the Classics line has developed to probably be a better fit for it.

If a release has a decent amount of extras, what's the functional difference between Classics and MoC? Is it literally just a branding thing?

That, a spine number, and some degree of prestige I imagine

The dividing line will the difference between Drunken Master and Iron Monkey, both by Yuen Woo-Ping but released in MoC and Classics respectively.
