    I wouldn't be against buying them a third time, in however many years, if they complete all 10 films in 4K. I might even be upgraded myself by then. But an improvement over the DVD's would be "good enough" for now.

    There was The Infinity Saga box set, but I believe it was fairly limited and sold out in a short time and is listed for $1000+ on amazon and ebay.

    That was probably what I remember. It's been a while and I know TWOK was discussed re: the blue tint.

    I just read the OP in its entirety for the first time, and found this:
    There has been scuttlebutt that it was also so the film wouldn't get a more restrictive rating. I'm too tired right now to do the necessary research to determine if this is true or not.

    I've heard that too, but I don't think @Lord Garth was ever able to substantiate it further than rumors when he was initially putting the FAQ together. Even over in Memory Alpha's article about blood, they hedge their assertion by saying "the supposed reason." I can't remember whether Nick Meyer addressed the Klingon blood issue in his memoir The View from the Bridge.

    The first time I ever read about it was in a Star Trek magazine in the 1990s. I don't remember which one it was, probably Star Trek Communicator, and I don't know if I even have it anymore. Most likely I threw it out about 15 years ago, give or take.

    If someone else doesn't beat me to it, I'll further research this during the next few days.
