Tempting, especially since the BB closest to me actually has it in stock, but I already have the DVDs... But thanks OP.

No Best Buy in my area has this in stock. That was my reasoning on not picking up the Mel Brooks set on Monday.

However, I've been waiting since day one to pick this set up. I missed it when Fry's had it for $59 on a single Saturday (as I was on vacation) and I missed the lightning deal a few months ago when Amazon dropped it to $55.

$45 is an even sweeter deal and I just ordered it through Best Buy's website.

There is free shipping right now, so that really shouldn't matter...

This is on the DD Fox sale for 51.98. With Bing, the cost would be almost the exact same (w/ tax)

I don't wish to threadcrap here, but the first movie is the only one that I would ever want on BD. Once it comes down to $10-12, I'll buy that one (and that one only).

You can get the first part for $10 if you buy the remake for $10 with it.

IMO:

1. Planet
2. Escape
3. Conquest
4. Beneath (meh)
5. Battle (blech)

However, I wish I would've waited for Amazon to price match.

Or you could think you paid $12 for the 1st one and $8 each for the other 4 movies. I am pretty excited about this price almost bought much higher

I confess I agree on 4 and 5. But I have seen both probably a 4 to 5 times each. And I will own them. This is one franchise I love and wish the remake would have been more retro....

It's a deals thread...if you want to tell us how much you think the Apes sequels suck, do it in the Movies forum (or HD Talk forum since this is about the Blu-ray Discs)....

just a heads up just cause its say unavailble when you do check stores that have it in stock, doesnt mean they are out.

the mel brooks set the other day showed as out of stock in the west hollywood bestbuy, yet when i got there they still had one in stock.(so i bought it) Bestbuy.com will show any item they only have one or two of instock as being unavailble, as to avoid, having a person request instore pick up of an item, have there card charged, only to find that a instore customer picked it up off the shelf and bought before the employee has a chance to take it off the shelf.

Well, I was only going to get the first one from DD for $13, but $46 for the whole set from Amazon is hard to pass up.

Yes, they will...just tell them you want to price match it, and they will look it up and give you the lower price....I do it all the time, most recently for the new HIM album: I wanted the 2 disc edition, which was only $12.99 on bestbuy.com, but was $19.99 in the store....
