Only the DVD gets shorted extras beyond the commentary and one featurette. Here's the list of what's in each version: http://www.amazon.com/Marvels-Avenge.../dp/B001KVZ6HK

Target has an exclusive bonus disc and is $5 cheaper IIRC. I'm getting the 3D edition from there and selling off the 3D and DVD discs leaving me the tasty chewy center for about $8. BAM!

Does anyone know how or if the STEELBOOK @ BB is still available? I think you buy the empty STEELBOOK beforehand which is the weirdest thing I've ever seen from a promotional standpoint....(there was a video of it on YouTube). Anyway, if any of you guys know, please post on here. I would really appreciate it.

I think it's pretty much hit or miss at whatever store you go to, but I'm guessing they're all but sold out now. Best probably at this point is to get it off EBay where they're selling from $10-$25. Preselling it ideally guarantees sales for them, but many of us (myself included) will often pay $7.50 for the case, then buy the movie whereever its cheapest.

Dumb question, but does anyone on this thread think BB will knock 7.50 off the deluxe $70 version...or they will only put your 7.50 deposit towards the standard 3D Blu?

Also, tough decision to reorder the bond at Amazon...now that I have to pay the CA tax, wondering if obtaining the set for the exclusive book and risking the set being dinged in-transit is worth it.

Doh...no longer listed w/book, Best Buy it is.

Which versions of Avengers and which stores have the free soundtrack download included? Is it BB's exclusive version only or is it all 2D or 3D versions at all stores?

There's no reason why they shouldn't, but if they won't, then cancel your pre order, get your 7.50 back, and put it towards the Deluxe version yourself.

I believe it is included with all of the 3d versions at all retailers. It shows up on Amazon on the 3d set, so it should be everywhere that sells the 3d version.

As far as I know, it is not included with the 2d set.

I would have readily ordered at Amazon with a price match. But with the California tax, it's changed the game, esp. since Best Buy is close, and I have BB rewards to use. I hope the tax is overturned in November. Vote!

Kind of a bummer that Amazon doesn't seem to be offering release day delivery with the Bond box. Prime shows a delivery date of Thursday.

I emailed them about that, and this was their response:

I've checked the product detail page on Amazon.com, and it appears the item is not currently eligible for the release-date delivery shipping option.

Eligibility for Release-Date Delivery is indicated for each product on the product page, in the order pipeline, or at check-out. If the option does not appear, either the item or the shipping address is not eligible.

However, to help you with the faster delivery, I've upgraded the shipping method to One-Day shipping at no additional charges. The new release delivery date is September 26, 2012.
So it's probably worth emailing them if you'd like to get it closer to release date.

Does anyone know if the Iron Man and Iron Man 2 blurays that will be sold for $9.99 are the best bluray versions? It seems like there's an Iron Man Ultimate bluray version (of the 1st movie) with 2 discs, but that's not the one that will be on sale for $9.99?

From what I know of, from earlier this week.
My Best Buy had 5 left of the steelbook preorders. As far as I know at the time of purchase, you were supposed to let them know which version. The version is then put on your reciept. When you bring the reciept to show them you preordered it, they will take the $7.50 off what you preordered. Therefore, I doubt highly they would allow the preorder to be valid with the $70 collector's set.
I'm just going by the fact I specified which version. I recommend you check your reciept and store for specifics.

The soundtrack download is with the 3D/Bluray/DVD/Digital Copy only. All stores will have it. It's in the gold lined cover.

Off the avengers topic. I wonder or hop the Deluxe edition of Green Day iUno! will be cheaper than $19.99. If it's the same thing listed on Amazon as being a box case that will house all three of the albums.

It looks like Iron Man is the single disc version, and Iron Man 2 is the three-disc version (2 blus, 1 DVD).

The Iron Man 2-disc Ultimate Edition is out of print, and I think there's a single-disc version of Iron Man 2 out there, too. So you need to be careful which versions of these you get if you want all of the extras.

Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and Thor are only available in singe-disc blu-ray editions, barring 3D versions, digital copies, or DVD combo packs. IE, with these you don't need to worry about dropped content and picking up a stripped version.

If you go to the Taget online ad and hover over the image of the 3D version of Avengers.. the popup shows it as $19.99... this is the 3D version with the bonus disc..
