    I have been waiting for this on dvd ever since the series came out last year. I cannot wait to buy it today. I have been getting different quotes on the price for this everytime I call the store. I was just wondering what other people paid for this?

    I paid CAD$ 86.85 including international shipping at Amazon.ca. I hope it'll get through Dutch customs without problems (otherwise it's + 19%).

    Just picked it up at lunch and I must say, they did a fabulous job with the packaging. The tin case it is in is really cool. I can't wait to get home today to watch a couple of episodes.

    Ha ha! I have it.[​IMG] Got it at Best Buy for $79, and they threw in When Trumpets Fade, so I'm not complaining. I've read you can get it through Amazon Canada for $69 US. I couldn't wait that long though. Now I just have to get out of work tonight.[​IMG]

    I paid $79.99 from Best Buy's website. Plus on Friday (or close to that) they'll send me my $25 digital coupon. I was going to use that for Sports Night, but Target has that set for $10 less that bb.com. I wonder, should I still use that coupon for that or save it for November 12th - Star Wars - LOTR - Metallica??

    The packaging for BoB is really nice, even if a bit awkward to open. Can't wait to check it out in DTS with my front projector since I only had a 32" Wega the last time I watched it.

    What's the OAR of When Trumpets Fade? Was it shot for TV in 4:3, or was it a theatrical release at 1.85:1? The packaging doesn't mention anything about the aspect ratio.

    About $56 shipped from Amazon.ca (CDN$85.15). I don't need to have it on the release date so I'd rather save some money by getting it from the .ca site.

    I paid $79 at Best Buy and got When Trumpets Fade for free, which I already owned.

    When Trumpets Fade IIRC was never released in theaters. It was an HBO special.

    My Best Buy has it for $79.99 - I ordered it from Amazon CA for $56 since I can wait a bit for it. My buddy should have his today from BestBuy.com - he did the pre-order with gift card back deal $79.99 plus a fre $25 GC so $55 plus tax.
