I've been to a bunch of websites recently, and it seems that this title is out of stock at a lot of places (eg. buy.com, reel.com, amazon.com)

Does out of stock now mean out of print? I'm pretty sure that it doesn't.

FYI, reel.com doesn't sell discs anymore.

If you REALLY want it Best Buy has a Disney Ultimate Pack for $199. It has Bugs Life CE, Tarzan CE, Emperors New Groove:Ultimate Groove, Fantasia Anthology, andd the Ultimate Toy Box. I think the Dinosaur CE is in it too, cant remember, never bought it since I have all the discs seperately anywho.

We must stand in awe of the infinite capacity of the human mind to reject the introduction of useful knowledge.

I don't believe this one is OOP, just difficult to find. I do see it often in B&M stores (where the cost is quite steep), but rarely on the internet. Try eBay for a potential good deal. Or any trading forum.

I just got mine from Futureent.com to 23 £ which is a pretty good price. You can try and mail them if they have more, which is a good idea since they charge your credit card when you place the order.

I found a copy at the Costco in Hawthorne, CA about 2 weeks ago (which I snapped up) for $20.00 when I went to buy "Tron."

Every now and then I see A Bug's Life CE at Best Buy. Also, you might want to check the usually-horribly-overpriced music/video stores at your local shopping mall. Though not competitive on price, they sometimes have harder-to-find DVDs.

Also, you could check dvdpricesearch.com and start inquiring as to the availability of it.

Good luck.

Thanks. I found a copy at Suncoast for, get this, 49.99. I think I'll just wonder around until I can find a cheaper copy. Posted Image

The Best Buy in Albany, NY has the Bug's Life CE on its shelf for $27.99. Not bad considering the single disc Bug's Life is sitting right next to it for $19.99.

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!

Amazing they can stay in business charging prices like that, isn't it? If my wife and I are shopping at the mall, I'll usually wonder in there if I'm bored and I need a good laugh - one look at their prices will do it.

$49.99 was the old MSRP. It dropped to $39.99 recently.

Oh, and Suncoast usually always charges the MSRP because unlike other stores like Target or Best Buy, they do not have clothing or a refrigerator to help offset cost overhead.

Wow, it's so nice to have friendly responses! Posted Image

Dome, I've seen A Bug's Life at some of the B&M stores. I've even seen it used. If you are interested, I'll take a look next time I'm out and see how much it is. If you like, I can pick it up for you if you would like to reimburse me for the cost of the DVD and for shipping.

Are there any differences between these discs other than packaging?

Dome-

My guess, and it is only that, is that after
the holidays, some DVDs are depleated, and they
just need to do another pressing.
A Bug's Life: Collector's Edition
is one of those titles,
along with Shrek,
that most people would buy on
DVD for people who just got DVD players for X-mas:
it shows off everything that makes DVD much better
than VHS, and those who didn't love this movie
seem to be rare.

I'd just keep my eyes peeled for when it comes
back in stock at e-tailers.

Same discs, same content, same inserts, just a different banner across the front of the cover.
