    I was surprised to see, or more accurately not see, any of the great animated titles in the CC or BB flyers this week. The only exception being that for Speed Racer. With JLA, Batman, Transformer, etc you would think that they would do so me sort of buy ## get some $$ off deal. O'well. For those interested I did happen to find some virgin copies of the titles listed above late yesterday. The store is traditionally a little overpriced so I decided to hold out a few more days.

    Thanks for the info and link to that article, Dave.

    I sure hope Amazon's Cole Porter sets include that extra disc; their product information says 5 discs.

    I know the Disney site says RETURN TO SNOWY RIVER will not be OAR, but I'm still looking for some independent verification of that, preferably with an actual cover scan or first-hand report.

    Update:

    I let my fingers do the walking this morning and made some phone calls. I talked to Costco, Wal-Mart, and Target.

    None of them will have Transformers Season 2 Part 2. [​IMG]

    It looks like fans of Transformers will be roped into hitting Best Buy or Circuit City and paying the $49.95 extortion prices if you want instant gratificaction. I may have to hold off and mail-order it cheaper. Especially keeping in mind how quickly the last two sets sold through and were hard to find.

    Target's price on Darkness Falls is indeed $15.99. They won't have Speed Racer. She said they had Batman The Animated Series, but the way she talked it may not be the new one (she said they "had it for a while").


    *MY* Wal-Mart (prices vary by location) has Speed Racer for $16.88, so I'm heading to Best Buy for that one. Darkness Falls is $15.97, obviously discounting based on the BB and CC advertised price of $16.99, but knocking another 17ยข off to get under the speculated Target "Low Price" of $15.99 (which turned out to be correct). Wal-Mart (at least my store) did NOT get Mad About You, or ANY of the Warner Brothers superhero titles (the lady I spoke to was mad about that as her own son wanted them).


    Not a good start to the shopping experience today; if anyone has any tips please chime in. Happy Hunting!

    At my Best Buy, while I was picking up Speed Racer, I was handed a brochure looking thing. It says on the front:

    Build The Ultimate
    DVD Collection
    with the
    GREATEST OVERLOOKED
    PERFORMANCES
    as Listed By...
    Entertainment Weekly

    In the back, there is a $5 off 3 DVD coupon. It expires 8/30/03. There was a stack of these brochure thingies at the Netflix table by the New Release section at my Best Buy (San Antonio, San Pedro store).

    Picked up Young Guns and Speed Racer (SR = 16.88 at my local Wal-Mart, 14.64 at Sam's Club) for 12.99 each at Best Buy. Note: There is a sticker on the front of Young Guns that states you get a $5 rebate by mail with purchase of YG plus one other dvd from a list that includes Speed Racer (and Glengarry Glen Ross, others). Makes for a much better deal ($10.49 each) on these titles.

    So the YG:SE deal is not good as $5 rebate for owners of the earlier version?

    The YG sticker I saw didn't look like that kind of rebate. I wonder if the $5 coupon Andrea found would work with YG/SR and another dvd. Hmmm....
