    Now that you mention it...I did not notice it on the shelf at Best Buy. I wasn't really paying attention though. I'll check out a couple other places tomorrow.

    Saw it at Wal-Mart for $32.00, and also at Borders for only $19.99.

    Go Figure...

    I didn't see it at Best Buy, so I up and ordered it at buy.com.
    Jim, I wasn't expecting a good deal at Borders. Now I wish I had stopped by!

    I saw it at Wal-Mart. It didn't have a price though. I'm hoping it isn't $32 everywhere. I was planning on getting this for my son (and me too) [​IMG]

    I know their is another version coming out in a month or two that comes with an action figure. But, I heard it will have extra features also. Does anyone know anything more definitive?

    Is it just me or does this, or does this release seem a little expensive?

    yeah, it's a little expensive, but it's not like they're going to sell millions of copies of it. So I'm not suprised to be paying $24 for it.

    Truth be told, I've already ordered the version with the figure at my local comic shop. Not sure when I'll get it, but that's okay.

    With this one being so expensive, I decided to skip the limited edition one. But, I'll pay whatever it takes to let them know there is support for the rest of the series in season sets.

    I just wanted to give a small review of this set.
    Disk 1:

    GI Joe:A real American Hero( The 2 hr "Mass Devise" )

    Disk 2 :

    GI Joe:The Revenge of Cobra


    Picture:A The picture qlty on my Hitichi HDTV & playing on Panny rp-82 w/progressive on, Looks OUTSTANDING. Color is vibrant and crisp with almost no grane.Id say picture qlty comes as close to picture qlty as new cartoons such as Spong Bob ,as I have ever seen.


    Sound:A+ The sound , Using Denon avr-3801 w/6.1 hookup , really took me by surprice! Its in a retooled DD5.1 and very agressive for a cartoon.Its not SPR DD qlty but for its purpuss on this dvd ,It deliverys great.I watch it very early yesterday mourning with my son asleep so Im hoping to watch it today turn UP!.


    Overall IMO, If you like GI JOE ,get this set.Unless the set that comes out in May is different,I'll stick with this on till the seasons come out

    I would have normally waited for the May set, but I figured that buying both would make it more likely for complete seasons to be released, I'm doing just that.

    19.99 at Circuit City B&M. It was the only copy they had...

    Sound on this set, albeit "good" for a fake 5.1, is messed up. Rhino offers a stereo mix on the discs, but it is not the original broadcast verson, rather a simple downmix of the DD version (complete with new sound effects).

    mike.
