Lord. Can I just buy it, take the discs and give Dollar General back that awful head? It is truly horrendous. Don't know what they were thinking with that.

Behind the counter at 2 locations. Might need to ask.

I bought an extra just to try to get my price back.

I went to my local Dollar General which is just a few miles away from my house. Jeez, I felt like I needed a bath after leaving there. I thought Wal-mart was bad! Nasty.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion to look behind the counter. There was one sitting there. Anyone else not specifically looking for it wouldn't have noticed it. They only got one unit at that store the clerk said. I was almost embarrassed to buy it.

I will say that they put it at the right price point. Any more money and I would have passed. I just wanted the 3D version. The only thing that sucks is the movie doesn't come in a normal case and the discs fit into a small, circular case that sits inside the head. I love my Halo and POTA monkey heads bit there is no way in hell I would display this anywhere.

And my god, this thing is even more hideous in person. I wish I had an enemy to give it to for a Dirty Santa party and just keep the discs.

Thanks for the post bigjim (I think).

Hmm, our office white elephant exchange is supposed to be things that start with the letter E and cost less than $20. I was thinking a poster of Erik Estrada, but this might be better/worse.

The bust is a good likeness for Jamie Foxx fans though...

I already have the 3D disc, so thankfully I can skip this one.

Sony butchered Electro as a character. I have no idea why anyone thought selling a big bust of Jamie Foxx would move units.

This is why Sony had to hand Spider-Man back to Marvel.

I'm going to paint mine brown, slap a cowboy hat on it, and store my Django BD in it.

It looks better than Electro and Green Goblin did in the movie.

My thoughts exactly. However, if it was only $5 or so, I'd probably feel compelled to shop for one, no matter how hideous it is.

I'll confess that the superhero film completist in me would buy it at $5, maybe even $6.

Thankfully we already own this movie so I am not tempted to buy that crazy looking special edition..

Re: Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electro CE (Amazon Exclusive) $15 at Dollar General

I was curious so I went to my local store. Saw 2 of these sets behind the counter. I didn't bother asking them to even pull one out. I just can't buy something like this at $15. I did find 2 sets on the shelf (with other DVDs) of Annie BD with a little stuffed dog for $10. And a single copy that I found underneath the shelving, almost as if someone had hidden it, of The Lorax with a stuffed Lorax for $8.95. I think $5 is where I'd like to be for these kind of things.

I went to Dollar General today looking for the Disney Infinity figures that were in their ad (which they didn't have), but I did spy one of these behind the counter.

I remember when this came out. It's hideous You'd have to pay me $15 to take it..... It could make a neat White Elephant gift though.

The last two years, Dollar General has some few cool box sets like this for $6. This one is a bit too much at $15. It's not terrible, but certainly not a "must buy" price... But I'm very curious what other box sets they might have this year...

Saw one in the aisle at my nearest store yesterday. Since I love bizarre shit, I couldn't resist this As for the movie itself, well, at least I finally have something with Emma Stone in it.

It does light up nicely. I've got some cool Halloween-decoration ideas I could do with it.
