Or that could have been the answer in the first place but I guess that's too much to ask.

That the OP actually try to do some of his investigating work if the title is "still available"? Yeah, I agree.

You have no idea.

What's funny is he posted this in the correct thread in HD Talk but became impatient that no one responses and started his one thread.

The Black Swan Target case isn't like a Criterion case; it's looks exactly a regular 3-disc blu-ray case except it's clear instead of blue. (PS3 style case?)

The Criterion cases are thicker and they don't have the big "border" at the top of the case like regular blu-ray cases do.

I'm sorry for all the fuss. And let me apologize for bothering you mostly Gizmo. And yes I hope the mods close this thread. I was just looking for a simple answer before I drive a long way to try and snag one.

I reported the thread so hopefully a Mod closes it.
And maybe they'll give you one of these:

Thanks, I was pretty sure I picked up the right one. I only picked their "exclusive" up b/c it had the DVD & DC in addition to the BD; the slipcover art is only a reddish/blackish/maroon rather than the white. Save for the color on the cover and having the BD/DVD/DC combo, their isn't anything different on the set. At least I don't think so--I have not watched it yet. I don't see what all the scuttlebutt is about on this, it is really no great shakes. Definitely not something I would drive around for or call it a "Limited Edition." I am enjoying this thread for no reason. I am just that bored...

Hi, Target employee here! Thanks for the condescension! We certainly cannot tell the difference between different colored covers, nor can we read about exclusive packaging.

With that said, I haven't seen it in my store since the Thursday after release. And that's including going in the back and rooting around for it.

One thing that makes it hard to look for is the limited and the normal editions have the same DPCI, so you can't just enter it in and find out stock, because odds are it will just list the normal edition. You need to actually lay eyes on it.
