Goosebumps 6 DVD set at Costco for $22

I just got back from Costco, and saw that they were carrying a boxset collecting 6 of the individually released Goosebumps DVDs for $22. This would've been an excellent deal had I not already gotten 3/6 of the set already. But anyways, it contains the 3 new releases (Chillogy, Scary House and Ghost Next Door), along with the last wave of 3 (Cry of the Cat, How I got My Shrunken Head, and Deep Trouble) - none of the first 4 OOP titles though. I dunno, I really think this is a great show, and a great deal. As far as packaging - I'd imagine it is similar to the Costco Fox Film Noir boxset - in that it is probably a longbox only, and doesn't contain a separate box housing the 6 DVDs. And I'd imagine they are all individually wrapped as well.

I picked this up last week as a christmas gift for my neice, its seems like a really great deal. Plus it is perfect for a gift because I like to give her things that I was really into when I was her age and at 7 I was huge in the goosebumps...

Haunted Mask II, Welcome to Dead House, Night of the Living Dummy 3, and Werewolf of Fever Swamp were the first wave I think.

I remember being so excited for this show to come out, it didn't quite live up to expectations but I still enjoyed seeing them adapted.
I never see any promotion about new dvds coming out until like the week they come out I somehow stumble upon them.....and I don't remember any of the 3 in this wave. Were they later in the series run?

Wow, I just looked the show up on tv.com and it ran for 4 seasons! I must not have kept up with it due to sports or something. I had collected the books, but a few of the episode titles I don't remember. Wonder why they didn't release these in season sets? Seems like it could have been maybe 3 discs and pretty cheap.

Yaeh, I hear ya on that one. Even though they were children's books, I still read them, and for the short read that they are they were enjoyable to say the least. Some episodes that they did of the series simply did not translate well to the small screen. Episodes such as Attack of the Mutant, etc.

Edit: Sorry for this being a double post, but I didn't get my point exactly across without the quote. Still sort of getting used to the site here. Not sure how to delete posts also, maybe a mod or admin could do that.

Sorry to drudge up an old thread, but has anybody seen or heard anything about any Goosebumps sets being released.

I just got 2 DVDs from the library and they were pretty fun to watch... even if a bit juvenile. I hoping my kids will enjoy them when they get older.

Holy crap, this brings back memories. They used to shoot episodes of the show here in Mississauga, as it was the cheapest place they could find. Everyone who acted in the show was a local Torontonian, but the acting itself was passable. I remember so many episodes of this show back more than...what was it...8 or 9 years ago? Such a long time.

There are three titles that are available for pre-order from Amazon.

Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy
Goosebumps: Say Cheese and Die
Goosebumps: It Came from Beneath the Sink


They will be released on 9/11/07.

I am hoping that this will spark some interest in this show... maybe enough to get some kind of box set. I'll have to check Costco around that time. Maybe they'll put that $22 set out if they had any left over from back in '05.

I just saw an ad for this movie on the forums here and decided to check it out: R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It

Maybe if this sells semi-decently we'll see some Goosebumps re-releases.

Does anyone havea complete list of what has come out so far? Because they get no promotion it seems like I missed a few- here's what I can gather:

Deep Trouble
How I Got My Shrunken Head
Welcome to Dead House
Werewolf of Fever Swamp
Night of the Living Dummy III
Haunted Mask II
Cry of the Cat
Chillogy
Scary House
Ghost Next Door
Say Cheese and Die
Night of the Living Dummy
It Came From Beneath the Sink
Perfect School
My Best Friend is Invisible
Shocker on Shock Street

That would be 16 total so far?
Oddly enough according to TV.com
Night of the Living Dummy (due next week) was never made, but II and III were...is this weeks release actually II?

I think all but the newest ones are listed on the official goosebumps DVD site :

http://www.foxhome.com/goosebumps/flash.html

But I think you have them all listed above.

Bump... anybody see any good deals on this series?

I saw a few at Target in the Halloween section. I think they were $9.99.
