From Amazon.co.uk

The foundation stone of the Troma label's trash-movie empire, The Toxic Avenger introduces the character of nerdy janitor Melvin, who suffers heaps of abuse from local bad-guys and is stuffed into a vat of toxic waste while dressed in a ballerina outfit. He emerges mutated into a Swamp Thing/Hulk-style monster hero who romps around the blighted township of Tromaville, New Jersey, offing the grotesque villains in nastily gruesome ways and mooning over his blind true love. The Troma style is unique, and perhaps predates the anything-gross-for-a-laugh approach of the Farrelly Brothers by a good 10 years, but it sometimes wavers between the good-natured gags and genuinely unpleasant plot images that somewhat spoil the tone. Entry-level filmmaking, but with surprisingly professional head-squashing effects and a degree of enthusiasm that breaks down most resistance. Several sequels have ensued, including The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie. -- Kim Newman

My Toxic Avenger Blu Ray arrived today, and Im just finished watching it. I can confirm it is still the absolute perfect Friday night film!
It is uncut (first time it has been in the UK since VHS) and is is widescreen.
The transfer is miraculous, honestly I can't believe how much of an upgrade this is from the Region1 DVD.
Theres next to no grain, day time scenes are at times razor sharp, and the colours are vivid. God damn I love Blu Ray (when done right)
There are no other languages other than English, and there are no subtitles.
Also included is the 92 minute Japanese cut (full-frame, awful picture quality) and an audio commentary by Lloyd Kaufman which I have yet to listen to, but its almost certain to be fun.
The bonus features appear plentiful, but theres nothing informative. Just a few short features (such as Toxie at home, Lloyd living on the streets, a tour of Troma HQ)
What I did really like though was 'Mopboy Secrets with commentary by Mark Torgl' a few minute compilation of Melvyns scenes with Mark giving some quite good insight.

The Blu Ray comes in a really unique green Amaray case, and has reversible cover art, its nice, but I'll be sticking with the classic poster I think.

I have noticed though, since pre-orders where put up on amazon, the inclusion of the DVD in this set has been dropped. Kind of a pity as I do miss those Double Play sets.

Overall -
Toxic Avenger fan? Please feel safe in buying this, it is AMAZING to see classics like this get treated so well and its a huge improvement on every previous release I have ever owned.

Not a Toxic Avenger fan? You just haven't experienced it yet!

This of course is Troma's baby, the Toxic Avenger is probably one of the most important movies of the early 80's and now a massive cult classic movie, the story is basically a nerd who gets picked on gets dumped into toxic waste and mutates into a superhuman monster who becomes a hero for cleaning the town of its scum and crime, its hard to accept as a straight up horror it breaks the rules a bit and has a very dark comedy edge to it with sets it apart from most films and gives it its originality, the movie has some great bloody gore kills all uncut here, and of course plenty of nudity, the cast is great and funny, the soundtrack is great too, the movie still holds up after all these years, 88 films has done a top notch job of the release, this is a cult classic and must be seen, worth every penny!

You get a cool toxic green Blu-ray case with reversible art.
There is a million awesome special features to watch.
Picture looks better than ever.

Format: VHS Tape
With this being a trilogy box set I have reviewed each film seperatley below:
THE TOXIC AVENGER This is the first and best of the TA movies. This movie has developed over the years to be a cult classic and is one of the most outragous movies you are ever likley to see! It consists of a young boy . . .A DWEEB who is picked on by EVERYBODY. When a "joke" goes wrong the poor lad ends up in a bucket of toxic waste, soon to transform into the first super hero from new jersey, THE TOXIC AVENGER. This movie is a scream complete with a low budget, a corny story line, comedy and an excessive amount of blood and guts. MOVIE HIGHLIGHT: The restaurant scene.
THE TOXIC AVENGER PART II The second. What a great sequel! This movie features the same blood and gore as before as the first! In this film we find TOXIE (the Toxic Avenger) heading off to japan to find his long lost father. With different actors than before this is one hilarious movie unfortunatley let down by a FAR TOO LONG car chase scene at the end. MOVIE HIGHLIGHT: The big fight scene at the beginning.
THE LAST TEMPTATION OF TOXIE The third. The worst. This is not a very good movie because of it's lack of PLOT. There is no longer any crime to fight in TROMAVILLE. Toxie wants to settle down with his blind girlfreind, Claire. One fine day Toxie notices an advert in a news paper saying that a cure is available for blindness . . .GREAT FOR CLAIRE. Unfortunatley the cost for the treatment is a lot of money so Toxie gets a job. BIG MISTAKE. For what Toxie doesn't know is that he has applied to work with criminals who plan to take over Tromaville! Worth a look . .but don't expect sparks to fly. MOVIE HIGHLIGHT: The ending . . .it features a dragon. BUY THIS BOX SET. All the movies will look great in your collection! Even if youy don't like the movies you still get a FREE T-SHIRT voucher! You can't miss out on this with it being so reasonably priced and from a good company!

This film is a classic with some really great comedy and gory scenes in it. Only be sure to get the US Director's cut release because that is uncut while the UK release is edited for violence. The US Director's cut is also region free which means that it will play on your DVD player or games console with no problems. On top of that it also includes lots of cool extras from Troma so if you're a fan of Troma then this will be an essential purchase.

All in all a really awesome movie that is certainly not for kids unlike the old TV series.

The toxic avenger,the film that gave Troma it's reputation is still a classic world wide and even now when people watch it they still puke up and laugh their heads off at this amazing troma release.Lloyd Kaufman,the man who gave birth to THE TOXIC AVENGER is the pure genius behind it all and THE TOXIC AVENGER is on logos,posters,lunchboxes,stickers,computer games and figures,all the merchandise you would expect from THE TOXIC AVENGER.
Melvin a young mop boy is hated by nearly everyone in his high school just for being 98lb of solid nerd and his worst enemy bozo plays a little prank on Melvin but that joke turns into something a little to serious.Melvin accidently falls into a barrel of TOXIC WASTE causing him to turn into THE TOXIC AVENEGR
Melvin now goes on a quest to mop up the streets of Tromaville and take the law into his own hands.
THE TOXIC AVENGER truly delivers the gore and humour any gore
fanatic would want and wouldn't dissapoint those who view the film with all it's glory.
Watch this classic B-movie and see what started it all off.
