    I broke down and bought the Indiana Jones box set today. For 60 bucks after tax it was hard to resist. The box itself is wonderfully made. The transfer is fantastic and I have not seen the extras yet. But I like this set a lot. Actully Raiders picture looks a little light. Now...

    WHO WANTS TO TOUCH ME?????

    From what I've read (and remember from living there), many smaller shops put stuff out as soon as they get it in NYC.

    Hell, I shop at a specialty DVD shop here that routinely puts out DVD's as soon as they get 'em. Sometimes I don't mind paying a little extra to have it early for a certain weekend, and in some cases it's the same price as if I went to Best Buy or the like. For instance, I already got Sopranos Season 4 since their price was $74.99, and I know at best Best Buy will probably only go to $75 on sale since their regular pre-order price is $80, and the other seasons have been marked up to $85. I also got my DS9 set there for $10 less than BB. Plus I like supporting the smaller shops that are getting trampled on by the big box loss leaders...

    I saw it today for 55 but decided to wait until it comes out officially so I can get it on sale at Best Buy, another 10 days isn't going to kill me. Looked good though.

    Yeah, I can wait a bit too after this long already. Typical low advertised price is $40 around here...hope it's the same as the U.S. version.

    To CraigF. I'm in Guelph, Ontario actually, and was wondering where you saw the set advertised for $40. The cheapest advertised price I've seen it for is $60. Thanks in advance.

    In two weeks it will be available everywhere.

    We've waited six and a half years, we can wait another two weeks.
