    My order from amazon.com is still there but the product has been removed from the site. I contacted amazon and was told that everything's fine and it will still ship upon release.

    Another Blade / Blade 3 pre-order fiasco. I'm glad I got my preorder in before Amazon took it down.

    I just broke down and ordered this a week ago from Amazon.uk, which explains why it's finally being released here.

    It's going to be a Best Buy exclusive next Tuesday, as has been mentioned previously.

    I'll definitely do the store pickup before they even open though, 'cause I know just how many copies they get in stock of their exclusive shit. Probably 3 or less per store.

    That's smart. Many times I have had to ask an employee to get a blu-ray from the stockroom after spending 15 minutes combing the store. I usually give Best Buy a bad rap, but the rep I dealt with this past weekend was very knowledgable and extremely helpful. He was a tech not a salesman, and he asked my wife and I if we needed any help.

    Here we go again with the Worst Buy exclusive bullshit again. I'm am growing really sick and f/n tired of this exclusive crap. Watch eBay be flooded with this the day of release. Troll sellers raking in $100+++ for the $40 box set.

    I hate store exclusives more and more. They're usually a royal pain in the ass just to get.

    And then of course there's those $$ scalpers who benefit when clueless stores like Best Buy advertise the stuff and then hardly get any in...and the demand far outpaces the supply. :fucked:

    Man, I dunno what do here. I have the DVD box set and haven't even watched one of the DVD's yet. Do I really need to upgrade to a Blu Box set that ill probably just sit on my shelf in the same vain. The old box set looks like it barely sells for $13 too.

    if they are the same Blu transfers as the UK box set, hang on to your DVD set. Aside from Parts 1 and 2, which look great, the rest of them seem to have a color timing issue and look washed out and cheaper than they should look. I think the DVDs are a better way to go.

    Part 2 has a color timing issue as well. Scenes that used to have a blue hue (bus scene at the beginning) now have a reddish hue for some reason.

    well it looks like the sku number is now active and all bestbuy stores should have them on order now but it could very likely not show up until after 10/2 release date since they ordered them late for stores.

    It's definitely not listed in this week's newspaper circular ad, which is interesting. I'd think if Best Buy were getting it in for 10/2, they'd at least advertise it.

    Apparently my local store didn't get any at all, since it's already showing as Unavailable. I guess I could order and pick it up at the next nearest store (which shows in stock) — but that's a 40+ minute drive.

    It's showing "Shipping: Not available" on their website too, how lame.

    Goddamn, I despise Best Buy and their exclusive bullshit. :fucked:

    All my Worst Buys within a 100 mile radius are showing up unavailable. I'm still puzzled as to how this is an exclusive, an exclusive to what? :rolleyes:

    Best Buy exclusives are a joke. Warner are just as incompetent for making this an exclusive to them.

    Yeah, I was ready to hop on the site away this morning, only to find that ONE store that's over a 100 miles away has it in stock. Oh well, if it's the same as the UK set, you might as well order it since it's cheaper right now anyway on Amazon UK.

    Wow I can't believe how hard this is for people to find. Best Buy must really suck dick. They have 14 copies of this set at the HMV Superstore downtown and all the surrounding stores have a couple copies too. Might pick it up this afternoon.

    Indeed. They have no clue about what people want. It's no wonder their movie selections in most stores suck so badly.
