Weekly DVD/BD Exclusive Listings, 05/02/10 and beyond

This thread will have weekly posts documenting all of the various BD and DVD-related exclusives (retailer bonus discs, toys, downloads, anything exclusive to limited retailers). This thread continues from the All DVD exclusives and freebies - 5/31/09 and ongoing thread. Please feel free to contribute any news or opinions you have on these exclusives.


For general discussion of DVD collecting and storage and our OCD-like qualities, feel free to use the "Official" OCD DVD Collecting and Organization Discussion Thread.

For discussion of trading exclusives, see the Bonus Disc Trade/Exchange Master Thread.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

This post will list all DVD exclusives and freebies found for the release week of 5/02/10 to 5/08/10.



New release price comparisons in their own weekly threads.

Thread "instructions" spoilered.

This thread is for the posting and discussion of all DVD 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 trade 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.

Hey Trevor,

I hit 2 K-Marts today, didn't see anything to suggest they ever had an exclusive for Planet Hulk, per your find. However...

This week, the single-disc edition of that title is on sale for just $7.99. Is this the version you picked up on spec? If so, maybe it's worth your while to pick it up again at this new, lower price and then return the new copy on the older, more expensive receipt. That way you A) have more time to figure out whether or not there's something special in there and B) might be more inclined to risk opening it cuz it's about half of what you paid for the original.

Then again, if you bought the 2-disc edition, this idea won't work at all...

Thanks Ajay! I saw tht sale too. I'm pretty sure my questionable find was the 2 disc, but I'll double check.

I'm also thinking of taking it to a postal or even more sensitve scale and weighing it against a 'regular' version (which I may have to buy). How's that for dedication?! Of course, knowing me, I'll forget to weigh it or even return it, and get stuck owning it either way.....

Trevor, I just wanted to say that I saw this, from a couple weeks ago, at Best Buy yesterday, and it had a Best Buy Exclusive sticker on it:

FYE/Sam Goody/other TWEC -
Iron Man 2 Sountrack CD/DVD - exclusive packaging with a reprint of The Invincible Iron Man #1 with an AC/DC cover, a poster and some AC/DC stickers

Sorry.

Would've posted sooner, but was busy at court.

Since when did it become a fine to have a broken break light (rear; left side)? Conflicting info. The cop said to just mail the notice with a police signature indicating that the light had been fixed. But the court house says no, pay $25. Damn long line.

- - -

I did go to my nearest Blockbuster for the "Legion" exclusive before my visit. They had two copies, now they have one. I'm glad I did this in the morning. The disc is packed on the rear of the DVD case in a DVD sized cardboard sleeve. The front mirrors the case with the exception of the words "Exclusive Blockbuster Bonus Disc" on the top. But you won't see that unless you carefully pry it off the case; it's glued/gummied on.


menu screen snapshot

It was sold for $19.99.


Thanks WhoTony for the info.

I use "InstantShot!" v2.5 for the snapping (TIF document).

Then I run it through "ColorIt!" (v4.5) to crop and save.

Lastly I run it through "GraphicConverter" (v6.5.2 PPC) changing it to a JPG; setting what kind of res I want for the image.


I'm funny that way.

Thanks! I thought you might use a special video screen capture software. Thanks again for the advice.

Late, but fwiw I did my usual ~9 chain crawl last week and found only the Blockbuster exclusive on The Legion. I don't plan on checking many stores this week, but it looks like nothing possibly.
