No Marvel short? How disappointing! 

 

Nevertheless, this is a great movie, and I look forward to it on blu-ray. 

 

I did see a rumor on the Thor Movie Facebook page that the discs are being released Feb. 25, with download on Feb. 4.

Sam, the first bullet point I see is a Marvel One Shot (All Hail the King).  Is that what you mean?

Disney is not releasing Thor: The Dark World in Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs as previously announced. Instead, there will be a BD3D/Blu-Ray set, a single BD, and a single DVD. 

 

From the Digital Bits:

Not sure what Disney is up to, but they look like they are trying to reshape the 3D/BD/DVD market.

Good! I'm getting a little sick of all those Disney DVD coasters in my collection.

Honestly, I think Disney is trying anything to figure out what combination of discs/material works the best.  First the Frozen 3D is a retailer exclusive here in the States (at least initially) and now the DVD is taken out of the BD 3D package.  They're really trying...

I hope this means the price for the single BD version will come down. I still have not purchased Iron Man 3 due to the high price, and wasn't planning on getting this title anytime soon either for the same reason.

See my review of the single disc here. It lists everything that is on the disc.

Well I am actually disappointed.I have gotten used to getting the all included combo packs. 3D BD for home, DVD for car and digital copy for whenever out or in a hotel room to view from my iPad or Apple TV. It should at least be an option or even a mailing option for an extra $3/$5. No way I am paying another $20-$30 to buy a DVD of a BD I just bought. Older Disney releases had BD and DVD as a combo but no digital copy. I was happy they added it. Now they shave the digital copy but no DVD. Won't feel complete but I can live with it. I one thing for sure though, there better be an obvious price difference...Not holding my breath.

Hello all---

 

I'm curious if the 3D Blu-Ray Combo of this title is hard to find in any other parts of the US.  I live outside of Houston, and I've been to one Best Buy, two Wal-Marts, and a local Target, and none of them have any stock.  They all have shelf space and signage, but no 3D Combo sets [lots and lots of the single-disc version, though].

 

Regards,

matt

Like most who've given up trying to buy 3D combos at box retails, I usually check Amazon instead:

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B00HERGM86/

 

 

Honestly, I think Disney is trying anything to figure out what combination of discs/material works the best.  First the Frozen 3D is a retailer exclusive here in the States (at least initially) and now the DVD is taken out of the BD 3D package.  They're really trying...

 

Like the failed Oz experiment (huh?...What for they release one disk, what for, huh?), they're realizing that the 5-disk package was just a series of now-obsolete rituals that was cutting their own throat.  And since the Thor disk, nine months later, now seems to have the combination we asked for, at a good price, I'd say they were taking notes from the experiment, and wouldn't call it a "failure".

 

They're trying to figure out what's the minimum they can get by on a well-stocked retail combo, and still keep it within a "reasonable" $25-30 price point, and getting rid of the Digital Copy hard-disk was just the beginning.  Since the 3D is more of a niche title, they're now experimenting with providing the DVD just for the mass-market 2D edition.

(And yes, there were folks who complained about that too, with the Oz disk, but the market seems to have arranged itself nicely--3D+2D, and 2D+DVD, and save the Digital HD for the Reward codes.)

 

And if their releasing a full-blown 3D combo collection on 2/25 is "proof" that they've "given up" on 3D forever with the more popular Frozen three weeks later on 3/18...that sure must've been some quick snap-decision.   :blink:

Maybe they finally realized we all have enough coasters in our collections.

Go the Amazon route, Matt.  I got mine yesterday with no problem.

Found the 3D combo today at Target in the Houston area, specifically on 59 in Sugarland.

Actually, I am not pleased at all that they dropped the dvd from the blu-ray versions of Thor: The Dark World.  I'd sooner lose the digital copy than the dvd from the combo packs.
