Re: Why no info on Hobbit auj Ext Edt blu-ray exclusives??

I was just at Walmart. They do NOT appear to have an exclusive BD, the only exclusive appeared to be a two-disc DVD version. They even had a display out, and the display specifically mentioned the exclusive DVD, but nothing about an exclusive BD.
So I guess their exclusive is just a slimmed-down, cheaper version of the DVD. It specifically mentioned it had the features "The Company of Thorin" and "Durin's Folk: Creating the Dwarves", meaning I guess those are the only special features on it, since they are both part of the regular extended edition's features.
Oh, and the BD was 19.96, and their exclusive DVD was 17.96. Sorry, I didn't notice the price of the 3D.

I'm seeing this at Walmart.com: http://www.walmart.com/ip/30823366

It's a better price than Amazon has right now and says "Walmart Exclusive".

Any reason why I shouldn't swing by the store later today and grab this version?

It's just the standard version. I did the same thing yesterday and ended up not getting it. I even went on the shelf to check and they were all the same. Now there was a DVD version that had a Wal Mart exclusive sticker on it, but I couldn't remember what it was for. Nothing major though. But if you are looking for just the 2D version, that's still a good price, just don't expect any exclusives.

I am only interested in the 2D version but wanted to make sure I got all the regular extras. I guess it just feels a little light compared to the LOTR EE extras.

Seems interesting that Best Buy is selling an exclusive that removes actual good, useful features in favor of a useless gimmick feature.

Nobody has exclusive or reduced features when it comes to the 2D. The cheapest place to get the 2D is Walmart, it's 19.96 instore and online.
For the 3D, the only issue is with the Best Buy exclusive which does not feature the film in 2D and is also missing the commentary.

Just do what I did...wait for the inevitable trilogy collection. Screw double or triple dipping. We've already spent enough money doing that for the LOTR trilogy.

I think that's standard for all 2d 3-discs versions.

3D extended edition is $27 over at WBshop. Use code WBshop5 to take another $5 off. $23.57 is good enough for me.

I'd been waiting for Amazon to drop the 3D price to $29.99 again. Great price! Thanks mattysemo247!

An Ultimate Tolkien edition would include the books.
