    Thanks, Neil. BJs was already going to be my next stop for Donald. [​IMG]

    I'll say it again. Anyone with a Target nearby should make a point to head there this week to see all the different stuff on sale. It's impressive.

    Maybe it's also a potential positive precursor to what we might be seeing at retailers this holiday?!? Here's hoping.

    I was at best Buy when they opened on Tuesday and they didn't have Dr. Syn at all. I think the Best Buy B&Ms only got the Donald Duck and Annette sets (or, at least, some of their stores only got those two).

    I know they had an empty space with the Dr. Syn label there when I went on Tuesday.

    I picked up the sole copy of Dr Syn at my Best Buy on Tuesday after not being able to find it nor Donald Duck at Costco. So some Best Buys did get them but maybe not in very large quantities.

    I've been such a "good boy" for the past few months, but SNL 2 at that price is just too good to pass up!

    Now stop talking about the unadvertised specials!

    Did they have the other two? Maybe the stores are only getting two of the three?

    I put a donald and a Syn in my cart overnight then early in the morning
    preordred using in store pick up to reserve a Syn.
    they had it but it was badly smashed, so i had to go over to target and re-buy it.

    No I saw all three, they had about 4 Donald's and 2 Annette's left. Maybe Dr Syn and Annette were packed short? I just can't imagine at the 2/$40 price that the Donald release would be the slow seller. I would think people would be more likely to pick up Donald and one of the other two rather than skipping Donald completely.

    Thanks for the info, Tony and Chris. I guess my BB just sucks. [​IMG]

    I've looked at the other stores in my area and came up short on Dr. Syn too. My last B&M resort is the Disney Store in the mall. If I don't find it there, I'll hit Amazon... which if I had done in the first place, I'd probably already have the thing in my hands.

    My BJs had probably about a half-dozen each of this week's WDT titles.

    Nowhere. Yet.

    The only six Bond films out on Blu-ray, Arsh are: Dr. No / Die Another Day / Live and Let Die / For Your Eyes Only / From Russia with Love / Thunderball
