Picked this up today and it's big! It's a VHS style release (with 3 blu-rays and 3 DVDs in it), but it's one of those hard case VHS boxes, like you'd see in a video store back in the 80s. More nice work on the package design.

Same packaging as the Season 1 set.
Not exactly. Season 1 had a slipcase over a box made to look like a VHS tape, with the discs inside. Season 2 is a hard plastic videocassette case, with a paper insert under a plastic window, and inside is a flap made to look like a videocassette, with the discs under it. They're similar, but a nice variation.

I haven't played the discs yet but I think the only bonus features are prints of photos that appear to have been taken on cameras similar to disposable film cameras.

Thanks. I was just curious because Netflix had some interviews with the cast they put on their service and I wasn’t sure if they decided to transfer them to the blu ray.

From The Digital Bits...Target Stores are now exclusively selling Netflix’s Stranger Things: Season Two on 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo (SRP $29.99) and Blu-ray/DVD Combo (SRP $24.99). Each comes in oversized VHS clamshell packaging and includes behind-the-scenes photos. I hear there’s actual HDR10 on the 4K this time. Audio appears to be DTS-HD MA. Here’s what they look like...

I love that they're doing this, but I'm hoping for a slimmer design sometime down the line.

I didn't know this was out, but was at Target yesterday and picked up the BD for $17, or $8 off list price. They also had season 1 BD for $10, but I already had that from the intial release.

Season 3 is going to premiere this July. I wonder if October is too soon for Season 3 blu-rays from Target?
