Thread "instructions" spoilered.
Spoiler:
These weekly threads are for price comparisons of all the big new releases, and the posting and discussion of that particular week's store exclusives and freebies.

These lists will likely be incomplete until Wednesday or so, since DVDs are released on Tuesday and one of us needs to visit all the stores to confirm things.

Links to the master list and to the previous and next week's thread are below.

Volunteers needed: I regularly go to Best Buy and Target; but don't visit the other stores every week. If you work at or regularly go to the Wal-Mart, FYE/TWEC chains, Costco, Borders, K-mart/Sears, Barnes and Noble, Blockbuster, Toys-R-Us, or any other store that has DVD exclusives; we'd appreciate any updates you could give us. I am slowly "retiring" from my weekly chain crawls, and will need your help to keep these threads useful.


All Stores - Thread for all movie cash and free ticket deals

Best Buy -
The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008/1951) - solid metal Gort figure with 2 disc SE or Blu-ray versions (normally $19.95)
The Tale of Despereaux - available packaged in a metal lunchbox

Target -
I searched and found nothing new

Wal Mart / Sam's Club -
The Tale of Despereaux - available packaged with a 3 CD audiobook

K-Mart/Sears -
I searched and found nothing new

FYE/Sam Goody/other TWEC -

Borders -
I searched and found nothing new

Costco - Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

Toys-R-Us -

Blockbuster - Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

"Lesser" stores with no exclusives this week spoilered
Spoiler:

Hot Topic - Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

The Disney Store - Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

Meijers - Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

i know from time to time, bestbuy has an exclusive here and there that fly under the radar, but is it kinda weird that the despereaux lunchbox is listed in the sunday ad but not at all online?

That has happened several times in the past iirc.

Ended up buying pretty much nothing last week, and looks like another week of the same, hopefully.

I probably won't get out to make any updates today. Anyone else hit any store?

Was able to hit Target, Barnes & Noble, Costco & Blockbuster so far, none seemed to have any exclusives for The Day the Earth Stood Still, the only title I remembered to look for today. Also, my local Target hadn't yet received their shipments of the deluxe edition, so I can't vouch for that. Other titles and stores will have to wait until later in the week for me.

Can anybody describe the figurine that's supposed to be at Best Buy, that I'm sure will be gone by the time I get there tomorrow?

It's a life-like representation of Keanu Reeves. In fact, if weren't for the size difference, you'd swear it was the real thing ...
