Following on from the Italian DVDs, the four compilation movies were released in Italy. The master tapes were digitally restored and colour corrected via digital intermediates. Original film print dots, scratches, distortions and missing frames were corrected (see screen captures for examples).

The retail version of Alien Attack was packaged in a clear Amaray box which allows you to "see through" the front cover, showing the Robert Baldassari Hawk Mark IX blueprint. It also includes Roberto's Eagle poster.
