I've seen these at Walmart for the past couple of weeks now, for only $10. It think they're putting off Blu-ray owners (like myself) by using DVD cases for these instead of Blu cases.
The first studio? Really?
I saw these at Costco for around $12. I agree that I would like to see them in BD cases too. I understand they they are being marketed toward DVD owners, but I wish I could buy DVD/BD versions of these films in Blu-ray cases too.
Technically I think Disney just offered it on Snow White, not on "an assortment".
What about the Toy Story films?
Disney has done it a number of times but I think they mean 'assortment' in the sense of more than just movies aimed at kids or families.
$9.83 @ Walmart in Canada, but Igor is not available here because of different rights holders (Alliance). There are also several Fox titles packaged in this series including Napoleon Dynamite, Speed, Predator, Commando and others. My personal peeve with this series is that Fox is using Viva EcoBoxes with a centre flip page holding the DVD. This packaging is cheap and flimsy and makes me want to huntdown a cover scan for Walking Tall (the only title I've bought so far) and put this in a BD double. Yes, they're that cheap.
I'd consider buying Rocky if the included DVD has the special features from the SE DVD that weren't included on the BD, but I'm not holding my breath on that.
I'm assuming that the versions of WALKING TALL and ROLLERBALL are the horrendous remakes and not the originals. It would have been nice if MGM had seen fit to include that information in their press release, but my guess is that whomever wrote that has no idea there even WERE any other versions of those two movies besides the remakes.
There's also that MGM doesn't own the rights to the 1973 Walking Tall; Paramount does.
