Doubt this will last long, but figured there might still be folks out there who don't want to pay the obscene mark-ups the tin has been fetching of late:

(Vol. 4 occasionally pops back in-stock too, but it rarely stays there for more than a few minutes)

Thanks, I'm in for one... I was looking for something to get with Entourage S4 to get free shipping, so this works out perfect...

I lucked into a volume 3 at a Hastings store a few months back without even realizing how rare it was. Glad I got it too or I would have passed on 1, 2, and 4. I definitely recommend grabbing this one before it gets away.

Maybe lower released numbers than the other two?

Brian T,
When you posted this did it say In Stock...or the "Ships in 7-13 days" like it does now?

I ordered one because I missed out on #3....thanks for posting this!

I know that I own either vol 1, 2, or 3; but its at home and I'm at work.

Couldn't curb my impulsiveness and ordered vol 3 just now. May end up having an extra to sell here.

I'm not Brian but when I ordered it yesterday, it said in stock. When I put it in my cart, it stated usually ships in 7-13 days even though I have Amazon Prime.

Brian T, Thanks for the heads up. I almost paid eBay price but decided to wait.

I didn't know they had only made 39,500 tins of DD Vol 4, that's a lot lower than Vol 1 and 2. I procrastinated too long and missed out buying this on Amazon and Deep Discount. Luckily I found one in a B&M store, it cost a bit more, but I'm glad I was able to find it to complete my set.

Don't recall, but looking at the order now, it says the estimated ship date will be between Jan. 14 and Jan. 20. Knowing Amazon, probably earlier.



^Donald #4 was still in my local BB last weekend...and it is also on their website.

There are undoubtedly copies of these two volumes available, but presumably in limited supply, which explains why they pop up from time to time, only to disappear. If you see it at local store for a reasonable price, it might be best to grab it.

Vol. 4 also returns to Amazon (very) occasionally, but the two or three times I've seen it come back, it never stays available as long as this Vol. 3 has.

I always try to have lots of various low priced items in my "to buy later" cart or wishlist for this type of thing.

Tons of low priced DVDs and books are there, but maybe some batteries?

I placed an order hoping to get a copy because up until recently didn't realize this was so rare...now to find a copy of volume 4. Its gonna really bug me if I don't have all 4 volumes.

Cameron
01-03-09, 01:35 PM
volume 4 is still available at places like FYE and other mall type stores. YOu may end up paying full retail though.

I don't know if you would actually get a copy if ordered but B&N.com has Dr. Syn available to order again on their website for $23.09 non-mmeber price. Says it is a 1 to 2 week wait time, so there is a chance it might end up cancelled. Also you can save even more if you use the B&N coupon thread found here (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-bargains/533548-barnes-noble-coupon-thread-part-2-a.html).

I tried ordering the Donald Duck set from them and it said the same thing, after a week they canceled it. The Dr. Syn I ordered from Best Buy cost a little more but has already shipped.

I had a Dr. Syn ordered from B&N about 5 weeks ago...about 2 weeks ago they cancelled the order because they said the item had been discontinued.

Looks like the Donald Vol. 3 set has gone out of stock again at Amazon. At least for the time being. Hope everyone who wanted one was able to get in on the deal.

Since the Disney Treasures are limited, they go out of print the day they're released.

I didn't realize VOl. 3 was out of stock and hard to find either, until I bought VOl. 4 and realized I never got Vol. 3 and TRIED to find it. Alas, I missed this thread and it is now out of stock at Amazon.

OF COURSE, the volume I don't need, (Volume 4) is in stock now at Amazon for only $19.99, for those who do still need it:

Brian T

Thanks for that! Was planning on doing a check later today but waiting has cost me in the past . . .

Amazon has kept this one at $19.99 the last few times it's been restocked, which is nice. ;)

01-07-09, 12:02 PM
Well, that was fast. Out of stock already! :(

Shipping estimate: January 14, 2009 - January 20, 2009

No big deal, I think it said this when I ordered it. Plus, it's for a July birthday present, so no hurry. :)

I've had good luck with Amazon so far - they delivered the Dr Syn when it got restocked for a brief time - I'm hoping my luck holds with Donald (and that someone finds a warehouse of stock for Donald #4!)

still nothing, this is the last day of the shipping window they gave....heres to hoping.

Well I just got the dreaded "We need your approval to keep order open so we can locate the item" email so I've lost a little bit more hope of Amazon getting this order to go through.

and 5 minutes later it is out of stock again. Hope it ships.

I saw it in stock yesterday as well. Said it would be a week before it would ship (as it was to arrive @ Amazon on 23rd). Shipped today. Go figure.

I didn't see any mention of when it would arrive at amazon but mine is shipping today (even though the estimate is the 28th). Looks like the book I used to hit free shipping will ship separate though.

Oh you guys are talking about Dr Syn. I'm still trying to figure out what the deal is with Chronological Donald Volume 3. That's the only one I need to finish my Donald Disney Treasure collection.

For those in Houston area, last I checked, the Rosenberg BB store (Reading Rd exit) had a Chronological v4 and maybe one more Disneyland: Secrets, etc left in stock. As I recall, they also had a v1 True-Life & a v4 also. Plastic wrap wasn't in too good of shape tho'.

For me, I found & bought a copy of the v3 Donald - last one from what I saw - along with the 2 other WDTs I mentioned.

I would have scarfed them up, but I'm not one into eBaying & such.

Hmm I'm surprised they had them since that's a newer Best Buy and all. I guess I should probably try the Gessner one since the "ghetto" ones always have the good stuff.
