DVDs (MOD edition; remastered picture) were released in region 1 05/17/2013; in region 2 (Germany) the product was available between 07/10/2013 and approximately summer 2016.
More information about Amazon Germany's product policy is available in the DVD - Status - Latest Info section (entry dated Oct 10, 2016).
Please pre-order and buy your MOD set as soon as possible - in the U.S., through the Warner Bros. Online Shop. For international availability, please check out the specific paragraph below.
Since this will be an MOD edition (manufactured on demand), each box set is produced individually by WARNER BROS. (USA) or amazon.de (Germany) when it is ordered, which means they do not hold any copies in stock. Therefore, it will make no sense to wait for price reductions, which typically happen only in the case of regularly manufactured box sets. Prices for MOD editions will not drop significantly, regardless how long you wait with your order since they are always custom made.
Please also keep in mind that the main evaluation period for WARNER BROS. is the sales in the first three months after the release. If the product does not live up to its sales expectations within that time frame, future seasons will not be released on DVD. So please pre-order your MOD set as early as possible as it really helps in getting future seasons released.
Warner Bros. Online Shop features a preview clip of the remastered picture, demonstrating excellent color, contrasts and sharpness.
The Warner Archive Collection website features a podcast released 05/28/2013 entitled "Days of Wine and Poses". The podcast includes a discussion about the season 3 DVDs with an allusion to DFCF President THOMAS J. PUCHER's work at the WARNER BROS. Corporate Archives to single out unpublished publicity photos for the DVD packaging. Among other things, WARNER staff members discuss the possibility of a remastered season 4 DVD release, which might include "The Vintage Years" as a bonus feature, in the not too distant future.
