Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

UPC is also for the standard edition that still officially has a release date 11/27/2018
883929609710
That item is cheaper via Bullmoose ($79)-- FS and No tax for most people


The new release Limited Edition UPC 883929638482
When I checked a bit earlier, about 40% of Walmart did list some In store items though 1 or 2 per store max. 89.96

If you believer the listing FamilyVideo has it 'In Stock" for $84. FV isn't always the most reliable at keeping their website UTD though

I searched this thread (and missed if already noted). Was it confirmed the Standard Edition will come with a digital copy? I know there were some pictures that showed as such.

I believe Warner has announced that they are pushing the limited edition units up from 30,000 to 70,000. They had no idea it was going to sell so well.

I think a standard edition will eventually come out, that was probably the plan when they were only making 30,000 units.

Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

Other than pics of the presumed front of the item showing a digital I'm not sure if there is any more confirmation. It would seem without the Funcos, art cards, and the digitals the MSRP would have been more than $25 dollar differential

Most people are under the impression that the Std release will have digital copies though the current Seagull Panic is it's only showing up a SD on the sites so far.

It will never cease to amaze me why the exact same question gets asked 10 times in 20 posts. Does the 10th poster think that by asking one more time, the dam is going to break or that everybody missed the last 9 posts?

I'll warn people about Amazon's deplorable shipping for these sets. The outer box really is thin cardboard and doesn't handle being in the usual Amazon bubble mailer. This is one set where you want a company that ships in sturdy packaging.

You convinced me that Fry's was most likely the standard edition so I cancelled that order. I tried Family Video. Item didn't ship. I called and they said it is on backorder even though website still says in stock. I cancelled that order as well since I doubt they will get anymore of the limited edition and I assume I will be able to get a better price on the standard edition.

Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

Quite a few Best Buy stores apparently have teh item in-store for pickup and shipping again. The price has dropped below Walmart. Given the Amazon shipping issues with the fragile packaging, picking it up might be a better choice. If you have RZ points, and Best Buy is now in their extended Holiday Return Period so price protection (directly or indirectly) if the price drops considerably in the next month or two might be useful since I expect by Xmas $80 is not going to be the lowest price available.

Most sites have pulled the so-called standard edition down.

Warner wants to sell the limited edition units out before listing the cheaper standard edition.

Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

Best Buy had a link up a week or two ago for the std set still with a release date 11/27

Bullmoose may be the only retailer standing if you want to be first in line not counting those who preordered on various other sites when it went live before.

Certainly one of the theories

Uh, for sure. If you think you'll actually want to keep your editions in good shape, don't choose Amazon (especially the fulfillment orders for some reason). I've had some really shitting shipping experiences. I get better service getting stuff shipped from Amazon's UK and other shippers. Inside the US, not a good thing. Don't even get me started on Subscribe and Save shipments. Horrible.

Before anyone orders from Best Buy, mine came yesterday absolutely destroyed. It looked like it was stepped on. I have to agree, the outer packaging for the set is paper thin and that is part of the issue. But don't expect to get something pristine from BBY.

Nothing available for in-store pickup anywhere near me so I went for the shipping option. Will deal with replacing it arrives squished such that the inner contents are damaged.

Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

I was able to get a copy held for me at a local Best Buy when hariseldon first posted the information on November 5. Thanks harseldon. It was in perfect shape when I picked it up ( not shipped obviously) They quickly disappeared locally and there are currently none available in store within 250 miles of Westchester County in New York State per the website.

As of this writing this set with the Funkos is back in stock at Walmart for $99.96 with free two day shipping for the holidays.

Amazon is matching the price.

Mine came from Best Buy in a box and was in perfect shape. It seems it is a gamble no matter the retailer.

Re: Complete Batman: The Animated Series $82.99 at Frys

No one really talks about them but I was very impressed by the included lenticular collector cards. I see those as far more desirable than the included Funko POPs. I'm guessing those two things and the digital copy are stripped out if a standard edition is ever made.

I can't argue with that. I went with B&N since I had a 15% off coupon and it came today in absolutely pristine condition.

Free 2 Day shipping, pick up in store by Dec 5


It doesn't state it's a pre-order so the website is acting like it's a current item though I don;t think the official release day is until 12/11, but this item has been so screwed up who knows, but a pretty good price fro a new item at 45% off

EDIT: price was $49.49 for a few hours, but dead now

$74.96 is a good price? And this is for the regular edition. The limited edition was just on sale a few days ago for $62. And this is the Frys thread...

It was only $62 for about 45 minutes so that's not really a good measure.

That said, I would hold out for $60 on the standard set.

^ It was $49 last night. And while this is a Fry’s thread, I always appreciate someone pointing out a much better price elsewhere.

True. It was sub $50 when I posted though only lasted a few hours.

I can't believe I left the price out of the post

I posted it in the Walmart thread too and didn't think it was enough to start an entirely new thread -- probably a good choice when it turned out to last such a brief time
