    Yesterday I was mortgaging my future by buying a bunch of dvd's at Best Buy. Man, this is getting to be an expensive hobby!

    Anyway, I was walking through the drama section and there were at least 10 copies of Reservoir Dogs with the Mr. Brown packaging. Naturally I bought one. But what's the story? I thought that these were very limited editions and they were all gone. Is that not the case? Will Mr. Brown be all over video store shelves soon?

    I look forward to the replies. If anyone needs me, I'll be selling my blood to finance this habit through Christmas!

    I noticed the same thing at mine. Lots o' Mr. Browns. I'm sure it's like every other "limited edition" dvd.

    Around here, Future shop doesn't have ANY Mr. Brown TONS & TONS of the other ones though. Music world had 2 Mr. Browns.

    You know it could be limited and possibly the studio printed more than they actually sold. IE, they predicted wrong on the sales.

    During the week of release, I couldn't find the brown cover anywhere. But as soon as the sales were all over, brown covers everywhere.

    We (Circuit City in Spfld.) have a newer edition. It's not a colored Reservoir Dogs, but instead the disc underneath without a Mr. Whoever outer sleeve. So apparently, all of them are limited and will be replace a la The Usual Suspects.
