Let me be the first to say "Thanks!," Matt for the review...confirming what we've come to expect--that the product, the transfer and the bonus features of a Pixar release are top notch.  While it's no surprise...it's always a welcome read. I will be looking forward to revisiting this film in HD.  I saw it once in the theater (in 3-D) and something tells me I'll be picking up on lots of things I missed the first time around. As most people here know...these films hold quite a special place in my heart.  I just recently shared discs of TS 1 & TS2 with someone (an adult) who had never seen them before.  And now there is at least one other person in the world waiting anxiously for these discs of TS3 to hit the stores so she can get caught up on the adventures of Woody and the gang.  

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I came to the Toy Story series late in the game, like, only seeing 1 and 2 just before going to 3.  (Really!)  Love 'em all, but am also looking forward to watching TS3 at home in glorious 2D because I was always a little distracted by the dimness of the picture in the theater.

Oh totally, no problem there.  I'm a solid Disney and Pixar admirer, even if I've tended to lag behind others in keeping up with them.  Getting better on that, though. And I loved those subsidized tickets. too.

This was a blind purchase for me, even before reading any reviews. Pixar is very boring -- every BD release is superb. Thanks for the review, Matt. I'm really looking forward to finally seeing this film. The first two are my favorite Pixar films.. and that's some very tough competition!

Being a one eye, my main complaint about this in 3D was having to wear the shades.  I can't wait to see this with it's proper colour!  I have the Ultimate set on pre-order.

With a combination of release week deals and Disney's $8 coupon, this is really a no brainer.  The only problem for me is I won't get to watch it for a while.  As always with Pixar, a fun movie for the kids with a complete second level for the adults. Thanks for the excellent review, too, Matt.  It confirmed what I strongly suspected this entire time about Pixar releases.

Hey, Jason...would you be so kind as to spell out the coupon possibilities for TS3?  I haven't heard much on the topic.

Sorry to butt in Mike, but if you're not a member of Disney Movie Rewards, go here and sign up:

You can then print out your $8 TS3 Blu-ray Combo Pack coupon. If you're already a member just sign in and click on the coupon banner.


Careful man, there's a beverage here!

From the ads I've seen (Target and BB), the four disc set is $24.99.  Disney has a coupon for $8 off the combo pack expiring 11/8.  It's the same as every other Disney coupon (Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story 1/2, etc.). I know there are special offers through Toys R Us with other purchases, but I'm not playing that game.

Thanks Doug & Jason! Somehow I had missed out on the DMR $8 coupon offer.  I'm on my way there now.  In fact, I had heard speculation that there would be no such coupon this time around for TS3 so I am thrilled!

Hmmm...  That DMR coupon must be very new.  I still haven't gotten the email for it yet -- and I usually get it about as early as anyone else near as I can tell. Thanks for the heads up. _Man_

I never got an e-mail about it.  It was a link I found on another forum.

The coupon went live yesterday so it's brand new.   Only $8 rather than $10, but I think I've abused Disney enough over the last couple years (Up + Monsters Inc for $5 total,  Princess Pea+TS1+TS2 for $6 kind of things). I hope that Disney will eventually let us buy some sort of Toy Box to put the 3 movies in.   I don't really like the upcoming Trilogy boxset with the wagon (?).   I;d rather have a nice carboard (or better) slipcase with some nice artwork to put the 3 movies in together.  Something like the LOTR DVD Trilogy box that they sold for $5 after all the movies were released would be really nice.

+1  I'd spring for that.  That would be a nice thing for those of us who already own the BD Combo packs of TS1 & TS2.

NOW there's a coupon?  Geez.  ) Mike, you should link your article in next week's Roundup thread.

Thanks for the heads up on that coupon!  Haven't gotten the email, but went to DMR and there it was.  Now, thanks to that and the advance purchase of the steelbook at BB, I'll just have to pony up a few more bucks when I pick the set up on Tuesday.

Mike, you should link your article in next week's Roundup thread.

I also didn't mention the new voice of Slinky Dog necessary since the death of Jim Varney, but Bo and Etch's absences were explained. I guess I could have said "Almost all," but I was really talking about the stars and the important supporting characters. Bo never was that.
