Amazon has already PMed Thor. I jumped on that.

I fully expect them to do the same for Captain America.

Update: Amazon also PMed Captain America, but Bluray.com hasnt updated their pricing yet.

I'm also going the Amazon PM route and they're applying a $5 promotion to the order (over and above free shipping). Nice!

Thanks ^^

If I didn't already purchased the 3D Combo Packs from Overstock, I would've been all over this deal.

Don't you love it when people post about some discount that apparently they alone see and can get and when people ask about it, they go missing and never reply? And by love, I mean not like.

Never is a long time. I finished work and had to go pick up my kid from school before going home. Is that OK with you?

Anyway...

Promotion Applied: -$5.00
Super Saver Discount: -$3.97

I don't know what the $5 is, but I'll take it.

If you actually have to pay tax on all your Amazon.com purchases, you deserve all the mystery promo credits you can get.

That's one way to look at it.

I think I will grab Captain America at that price. This is probably the lowest this will be for a while I assume.

Any one give me an idea on Thor? It isn't one that I have been watching for a price drop or anything and would just wait if it is mixed reviews.

I already bought Thor at Target and didn't open it. So I'll return that and go over to BB and buy it there. Thanks for the heads up.

Already had Thor, grabbed Cap. at Amazon and, why the hell not?, pre-ordered Three Amigos along with it.

I wasnt sure what the prices would be on the two-disc versions, so I looked at the two-disc version pricing of Iron Man 2, which is the most recent of the Avenger related films that isnt Thor or Captain America. The lowest it ever went was $17.99 or so.

I figured based on that, $15.99 each for those movies was a very acceptable price to pay.

I just rented Cap (first-time viewing), cursed the lack of features, and congratulated myself on not spending money on the purchase. Saw Thor in theaters and didn't buy. But now I'm looking at these prices and imagining how an Avengers set would look on my bookshelf.

(Plus I'm a combo-pack whore.)

Both movies were worthless in 3D. I didnt even bother to see CA in 3D after watching half of Thor 3D without the glasses. Other than Asgard, the 3D was meaningless. Certainly not worth the extra money.

However, as traditional viewings, theyre definitely worth the purchase. Both movies were done quite right.

Thanks so much for the heads up. It's a good deal and I had a $5 reward zone coupon so both worked out to be about $14.

Captain America has extra features, just not on the rental version. Many studios (most notably Warner and Fox, but lately Universal, Paramount and others) now release stripped down no-extras movie only versions to redbox, netflix, etc. Google for Captain America reviews, and you'll see the list of features on the purchased version.

Yep, I'm painfully aware of this trend since I'm not collecting at the rate I used to. For a lot of movies I'm fine with no features, but I'd be interested in these, which is part of what makes the deal tempting.
