    Has anyone found these titles at Wal-Mart or Target? Wal-Mart had none of the titles and there website liste them as "out of stock". Target had Robin Hood in stock, but none of the other 2-disc releases (Giant and The Right Stuff weren't listed in their inventory, Once Upon..was listed but they did not recieve any stock).

    I hate having to drive all the way out to Best Buy since I have 3 Wal-Marts and a Target within 15 minutes of my house. Just wondering if this is isolated to my area.

    I also had trouble finding the new WB SE's anywhere...Wal-Mart didn't have them, a call to Target revealed they weren't there, Costco didn't get them, and Borders had gotten 5 copies of each except OUATIA but their SALE price was $19.99...too high. CC left a bad taste in my mouth, so I skipped them. Besides, BB's price was better on these. Luckily, Best Buy did indeed have stock on them...except OUATIA (noone had that one, that I saw). I grabbed RS and RH[​IMG]oT for now, and may go back for the others.

    Two of my Target contacts for prices told me that stock on this stuff didn't show up (well, one only mentioned OUATIA) at any location.

    I imagine there was a production issue that prevented Warner from being able to fill all the orders. Get rainchecks where appropriate and keep checking back.

    My local Best Buy had a surprising number of each title in stock (actually I only looked for The Right Stuff and OUATIA, and Robin Hood was right beside them, but I didn't bother looking for Giant). So there out there. Maybe BB screwed up the distribution though...

    Wal-Mart and Target are not good places to look for older releases, even SE's.

    My Wal-Mart had none of them.

    Target had ample stock of both Robin Hood and OUATIA, which I would expect given that both were advertised as sale items. No Giant or Right Stuff, however, which was OK because I picked both of those up at Best Buy. BB had good stock of all four titles.

    I was also in Circuit City yesterday and didn't see ANY of the four.

    My target had plenty of RH: POT but no OUATIA. Our local Best Buy had plenty of copies of all of the SE's.

    My Best Buy had a rack full of OUATIA. I was kind of surprised, as I didn't think this title was that popular.

    No copies of The Right Stuff at my local Walmart. Looks like BestBuy is the best bet.

    No show at Walmarts and Targets in the SW Chicago / Joliet /NE Indiana area.
    Found The Right Stuff and OUATIA at Best Buy and the $5
    discount comes up on the register when you buy both.

    Saw probably 20-25 of them at my Best Buy. Did not see them at Target or CC when I was looking for another DVD.
