Got mine from Best Buy on release day. Only had a few though. Nice set.
i know of at least two up on, ... well you know were.
Does anyone know the exact status of this 2-disc Collectors Edition? Was it really recalled? Why is it that people only seem to be finding it at Best Buy? Is this some sort of Best Buy exclusive? There seem to be some strange circumstances surrounding this release. Whay gives????
I know that Best Buy has is. That is where I got mine. There are quite a few online retailers that have it. Check out DVDPricesearch.com. Only one I see that DOES NOT have it is Amazon.com but there are some thru the Amazon.com Marketplace for sale but more expensive. Hope this helps.
No help to you, but definitely not a BB exclusive. Wal-Mart here has tons of copies, and amazon.ca has it (at a ridiculous price now IMO, but unbelievably it's cheaper than the 1-disc WS...they go looney with prices sometimes.) Edit: Don't know how it is where you are, but lots of places have been getting the "fancier" releases a bit late up here. Wallyworld has often been 2-4 weeks late, others maybe 2 weeks late. As others have said, production facilities are churning madly at this point.
My Wal-Mart had no copies of the 2-disc at all, just the single discs and a 2 disc combo with Beautiful Mind. I'm still looking around to see if anyone could pick this one up for me. I'm tempted to just go for the single disc, but would love the 2-disc. Any help?
I pre-ordered my copy one month earlier at Amazon.com and it was shipped today. They probably had very few copies as well. Studios shouldn't do that though. Now it has become a "collector's item" and anyone can charge as much as they want to sell it. Universal lose money now, don't they? Oh yes, it's the piracy. How about availability of their products? My guess is that people will be tempted to copy the extra disk from a friend instead of waiting for the title to become available again. Heck, I may even sell mine if the price goes very high... I bought it at $31,49.
Josh, check out DVDPricesearch.com for that title. EDIT: WalMart does not carry the 2 disc "Collector's Edition". DVD Price Check Barnes & Noble $ 31.48 Amazon $ 31.49 DVD Planet $ 33.71 Digital Eyes $ 35.95 DeepDiscountDVD $ 35.98 DVD Empire $ 34.46 DVD Box Office $ 36.76 Playcentric.com $ 39.32
So the set is fine to purchase and there will be no recall? There were plenty of copies at Best Buy and none of the staff heard of a potential recall. "We've had no returns yet..." - About 10 hours after they opened, Ryan
no one ever reported a recall. it has been noted that is seems to be in short supply/hard to find.
Today, I saw plenty of copies of the Collectors Edition at Target.
Please tell us, in one of the CM threads, how the DVD-18s are working out. I still feel like I'm taking a chance whenever I buy one, feel like I have to watch the whole thing almost right away in case it's bad. Usually I don't watch discs until a couple weeks after I buy them. [It's ~US$36 at Wallyworld and HMV here, near the high end, so I'm still on the fence for now. The 1-disc was $17 on release day, will sit on that (unopened) until others here get the set at hopefully cheaper.]
I rented the DVD last night and expirienced no playback problems.
So what exactly are the differences between the gift set and the other release? The back of the gift box lists some and then says "plus more". Not helpful. Both DVDs appear to have footage of the Braddock-Baer fight but is one different from the other. The descriptions on the two boxes are different. Any help would be appreciated. I am not, by the way referring to the booklet and photo cards. Those are only in the gift set. Thanks! PatH

I hope these questions are answered in my HTF Review... - Steve
My single disc editions skips at least twice at the layer change. Crappy Universal.
