    How'd you get it for $19.99 thru Amazon? I see it for $24.99.

    Get the Blu's now dood. I'm not waiting on a box set that I'm not even sure will ever exist. Even if it is coming - how can you wait! :evil:

    I picked up the 5 vintage Friday releases at 12:00 AM this morning at Bull Moose. I almost didn't do the midnight run, figuring Wal-Mart would have them all on the way to work, glad I chose the late night trip!! At Bull Moose the 2 blus were $19.97 and the 3 dvds were $12.97. One copy each of these is all they received, rediculous.
    Piles of the 2009 remake though. Bah, I'll rent this first.

    I rented the remake first, 'nough said.

    Screw it, I went ahead and ordered Part 2 and 3-D on Blu-ray from Barnes & Noble. They currently have a Buy 3 and get 1 free promotion, so I basically got the new Spaceballs Blu-ray free then. Plus, I had a $5 off coupon on top of my membership discount, so the deal was sweeter. Already shipped with free UPS 3-day so it should be here on Thursday/Friday.

    I also ordered The Final Chapter DVD from Amazon...as I just couldn't wait for the Blu of that. It'll be here on Thursday with Amazon Prime.

    Amazon has the following blu-ray prices:
    Friday the 13th 17.99
    Friday the 13th 2 19.99
    Friday the 13th 3 19.99
    2009 Friday 24.99
    No shipping if total over 25 bucks and no tax
    FYI off topic they have King Kong blu for 14.99 right now which is the lowest I have seen it.

    Lol, that's cool. Yup, it's still right there. Smells the same, looks the same, even the same exact cashiers and irritating music played at 3/4 volume (to avoid loiterers?). I hope it never goes away.

    I had no idea the Friday the 13th original single Blu's 1, 2 and 3 were OOP. I'm selling Part 1 on eBay - no wonder there's so many views/watchers. The Blu boxset - wow, folks are paying up to $200 for that?!

    That's crazy, especially when you consider how many problems the set had in terms of scratched/faulty discs. There is no way Paramount isn't going to release these blu-ray's at some point. Especially since Transformers 18 was just a bust domestically in its opening weekend. It's easy money.

    No kidding, I sold a spare set for just under $200 the other month, and started the auction price low with no reserve. It was well used, had some dents in the tin, etc..

    I bought the first three single releases and wish they'd put the rest out already. I'm still kicking myself for not getting the double-feature releases of III & IV and VII & VIII (for some reason, V & VI has been easy to come by all this time later).

    Sometimes out of print items rocket up in price on ebay. But they will get around to making Friday the 13th again. I would never over pay as much as I like the series. They have almost all of them up on Starz right now anyway.
