    I'd rather pay a few extra bucks than buy anything from Walmart. Maybe they'll offer a CLEAN version in fullscreen only.

    Man, the Walmarts here in California (or at least in the Sacramento area) must be different from Walmarts in the east; I went to the only Walmart in my area that stayed open past midnight just to sell Spidey. That they did; however, the DVD Spideys rang up as $19-something. I had to price-match the Kmart ad in order to get the $14-something price.

    And no, they didn't have any box sets out; either they didn't get any in at all or they decided to wait until later that day (it was midnight, you know) to bring them out. Also, they did hand out the small Spidey posters but no comics...however, they did carry both WS and FS (two huge boxes of Spidey--I doubt they'll run out of them anytime soon), so I guess that counts for something.

    There should be plenty to go around, Columbia shipped 26 million copies of this title to US retailers, and 40 million worldwide.

    K-Mart has it in their ad (here, anyway) for 14.87. I guess you could try snagging it there, or, especially if you want WS (which you better!), and if they don't have it, you could try price-matching with the ad at CC or BB. YMMV, since some retailers (some BBs?) apparently do not consider K-Mart a 'competitor' and won't price-match them. Worth a shot, though. Who knows, however, what Black Friday will bring? You may get an even better price by waiting a few weeks! Um, or not. Okay, I'm leaving now.

    Indeed, K-Mart does continue to show Spiderman for $14.87 in their latest ad circular:

    And reports are that Widescreen is being stocked on this one, so go snag it. Or snag the ad and head off somewhere (Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, or Circuit City) for a pricematch.
    You shouldn't have too much trouble getting it cheap, though.

    Stopped buy Wal-Mart today.. looks like Spidey is now regularly priced at $18.80 [​IMG]
    I guess I'll have to try and stop by Kmart, and if no widescreen.. pick up their ad and price match at BB.

    I had a good laugh when I was in CompUSA and noticed that the WS version of Spider-Man was $19.97, but the P/S version was $21.97.
