    You stay out of this, he doesn't have to shoot you now. (quote from Rabbit Seasoning)

    [c][​IMG][/c]

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    I only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. Please don't complain. If there is a title not included in the Roundup that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone...like I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Your welcome...Sam's prices taken from a now non-existant thread from yesterday. Credit goes to that person (forget who).

    Roundup was edited to add Target extras on Hulk purchase.

    Those of you who wonder why I didn't do the quote on MwC, well I almost did. But I figured that even Al Bundy has to give ground to Bugs Bunny. Bundy vs. Bunny? Let's Rock vs. What's Up Doc? Interesting battle...Bugs will win with no effort, I'm sure of it. Still great to have Al, Peg, and the kids on DVD in season sets, finally!

    Just Looney Tunes Golden Collection and Ed Sullivan Presents the Beatles for me.

    Hopefully Costco or Wal-Mart will have a comparable price on Looney Tunes to Sam's.

    I going to get the Looney Toon Golden Collection and maybe Space Jam and Married With Children. But I need to know, does anyone know what the prices for these items might be in New York? I will be out of town next weekend and I going to pick them up then. Like for example, what would Virgin Megastore tend to price these items? Thanks you and Dave for the update.

    Darn that Target and their golden collection low price! I ordered from Amazon just the other day thinking that they were going to have a low price than the B&Ms. O'well I suppose $2 won't kill me. The Hulk deal is pretty sweet I just hope they don't run out of extras before.... O' no!..... heart stopping...... lungs collapsing...... $2 can kill..... *beeeeeeeeeep*........

    Is Space Jam one of the eligible Looney Tunes titles for the Target deal?

    For all you Looney Tunes - Golden buyers out there:

    There's free movie cash for "LT-Back in Action" in the package. Although a little different than the movie cash we received in the FOTR:EE as this one is only good for a child's pass up to $6.50. Still a great bonus in my opinion.

    Got my Golden collection from a retailer yesterday that broke the street date.

    You can't use the $6.50 towards the price of an adult ticket?
