    I've been to a bunch of websites recently, and it seems that this title is out of stock at a lot of places (eg. buy.com, reel.com, amazon.com)

    Does out of stock now mean out of print? I'm pretty sure that it doesn't.

    FYI, reel.com doesn't sell discs anymore.

    If you REALLY want it Best Buy has a Disney Ultimate Pack for $199. It has Bugs Life CE, Tarzan CE, Emperors New Groove:Ultimate Groove, Fantasia Anthology, andd the Ultimate Toy Box. I think the Dinosaur CE is in it too, cant remember, never bought it since I have all the discs seperately anywho.

    I don't believe this one is OOP, just difficult to find. I do see it often in B&M stores (where the cost is quite steep), but rarely on the internet. Try eBay for a potential good deal. Or any trading forum.

    I just got mine from Futureent.com to 23 £ which is a pretty good price. You can try and mail them if they have more, which is a good idea since they charge your credit card when you place the order.

    Regards Michael

    I found a copy at the Costco in Hawthorne, CA about 2 weeks ago (which I snapped up) for $20.00 when I went to buy "Tron."

    Every now and then I see A Bug's Life CE at Best Buy. Also, you might want to check the usually-horribly-overpriced music/video stores at your local shopping mall. Though not competitive on price, they sometimes have harder-to-find DVDs.

    Also, you could check dvdpricesearch.com and start inquiring as to the availability of it.

    Good luck.

    Thanks. I found a copy at Suncoast for, get this, 49.99. I think I'll just wonder around until I can find a cheaper copy. [​IMG]

    The Best Buy in Albany, NY has the Bug's Life CE on its shelf for $27.99. Not bad considering the single disc Bug's Life is sitting right next to it for $19.99.

    $49.99 was the old MSRP. It dropped to $39.99 recently.

    Oh, and Suncoast usually always charges the MSRP because unlike other stores like Target or Best Buy, they do not have clothing or a refrigerator to help offset cost overhead.

    Dome-
    My guess, and it is only that, is that after
    the holidays, some DVDs are depleated, and they
    just need to do another pressing.
    A Bug's Life: Collector's Edition
    is one of those titles,
    along with Shrek,
    that most people would buy on
    DVD for people who just got DVD players for X-mas:
    it shows off everything that makes DVD much better
    than VHS, and those who didn't love this movie
    seem to be rare.
    I'd just keep my eyes peeled for when it comes
    back in stock at e-tailers.
