Kryrem vs The Sword of Justice - Blu-Ray

The postman was nice today, with my pre-order of the Kryrem vs The Sword of Justice Blu-Ray coming way sooner than I was expecting. However as expected it doesn't come with the Meloetta short, so I suppose everyone will need to hope that there is a release in the US or Europe at some point that is both on Blu-Ray and has the short, because I imagine that it's likely that you'll get one or the other, if the lack of non-Australian Blu-Ray releases continues.
It does however come with a Keldeo card, which at least makes a bit more sense than the Pikachu card that the White/Black Movie Blu-Ray came with. Some editions supposedly include a poster as well, mine didn't. I do wish they'd put the sticker for it on the plastic wrap rather than on the case, those are a pain to get off.
While I haven't watched them side by side to confirm exactly - the runtime difference between this and the Cartoon Network airing seems to just be filled with 5 minutes of credits and some minor cuts at best to the rest of it. If you're not in it for the higher quality, then I might wait until there's some detail on the other releases of the movie to see if you can get the Meloetta short, it doesn't seem like you'd have missed giant bits of the movie watching it on TV.
I'm a big fan of the movie, one of my favourite ones in a while, especially after the quite poor Black/White movies and the fairly uninteresting Zoroark one - I posted a review on the forums when I watched it on TV, most of that is still what I think. I haven't properly sat down and watched it yet - just was happy to finally get it.
Someone mentioned in an earlier thread that they had problems playing back the disc in a US player because the menus were 25fps - in this the menus seem to all be the 29.94fps of an NTSC release, so perhaps things will be better there. I'm fairly certain that it is region free (the PC software I have for getting it to all play isn't conclusive on that). There are two audio tracks, a 640kbps 5.1 AC3 one and a 5.1 DTS track (~1.5Mbps).
Some random screenshots from it - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
Edit: I got another thing in the mail today, something that quickly made its way to my wall:
Seems someone in the warehouse noticed the giant pile of posters and decided to send me one - with a handwritten letter explaining it, which was nice. There was also a 'checklist' poster for buying the Black and White series of figurines and another one of the cards.
