    My Walmart had the 3D combo of Thor 2 for $21.96 (regular Blu for $18.96). They also have an exclusive extra, "Loki: The God of Mischief," but it's a streaming feature via VUDU, not on the disc itself.

    Apparently, Best Buy pulled a Jaws on the steelbook, only shipping a handful of copies to stores yet dedicating 1/2 page of their weekly ad touting the exclusive. Most stores were sold out in minutes.

    The good news is that the regular packaging release of the 3D Blu-ray is the same price - $22.99.

    Sounds like Best Buy ... doing everything they can to piss off the few customers they have left.

    That's not a shock. I think Jaws release day was the biggest cluster I've experienced there for a new release. It led to having a totally insipid conversation with the manager. She was clueless.

    With regard to the Thor 2 steelbook, I assumed that would happen. The nice thing about Best Buy is that you can order online for in-store pick-up. I ordered my copy of the steelbook at 9:30AM Tuesday and then it was there waiting for me when I picked it up Wednesday evening.I hardly ever roll the dice anymore with a title actually being on the shelf at Best Buy.
