    When I purchased T2 today I also picked up The Fast and the Furious tricked out edition. I figured what the heck, it was only $14.99 and came with a free movie ticket to the sequel. So it really only cost about $7.50. What can I say, I really enjoyed the first one and am looking forward to Friday to see the sequel. Anyway, my question is, is there any difference in the picture or audio quality compared to the first release? If not, I might just take it back due to even for only $7.50, why should I waste $7.50 for no reason.

    It uses the audio/video transfer as the previous release.

    Hey Jeff, where did you get it for $14.99? I was just wondering this because the lowest price on DVDpricesearch was like $18 at Best buy. But, hell, for 15 bucks, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    Target $14.99 along with T2 $14.99 and Blackhawk Down SE $24.99. My friend at work is going to buy my original so I am keeping the Tricked Out edition.

    Thanks Kenneth, you have convinced me. I am keeping the original and taking back the Tricked out edition. Although I heard one out of every 25 discs comes with a free vinyl NOS sticker! Just kidding [​IMG]

    Are both versions still going to be available or will the original go OOP? I'd like to pick up at least one version of this movie, but not sure which one.

    Universal knows exactly what they are doing. The key is the consumer is "Tricked Out" of $14.99 and not the disk.

    If you don't own a copy of the film at all, by all means get this version.

    ^ I thought this version removes many the relevant extras from the original and added fluff instead...?

    It does. The original is the better version.

    Bugger, and I thought T2: Extreme Edition was going to win Silliest DVD Title Of The Year award.

    Hi,

    I just got the tricked out edition as a gift and opened it up. Didn't get a movie ticket or a booklet. My question is are they still coming with a movie ticket and did they come with a collector's booklet?

    Any info. would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    I bought the tricked out edition a couple weeks ago (And they had a copy of the original [​IMG] ) and the movie ticket expires on the 22nd of June. I bought this one over the Collectors Edition because it looked like it had the old extras presented in a new way, I did not own the CE and a free movie ticket.

    So I bought a dvd with an expired movie ticket, an enhanced viewing mode that can only be watched with the commentary from the old CE and fluff material for 2f2f. Now for the great part! The only two new extras (how to trick an import and 2f2f prelude) will be on the 2f2f DVD.

    My advice is to dig deep and find the CE somewhere.
