Abbot and Costello V4, which B&Ms will carry?

If this is a double posting, my apologies. Searching seems to be disabled.

The Abbott and Costello Voume 4 set is scheduled to be released Tuesday (Oct 4). I haven't seen any B&M advertising for this. Does anyone know which stores might be carrying it? Target carried previous versions, but their Sunday ad didn't mention it.

I don't know what Universal is thinking... this set offers less and costs more than previous sets. I bought the first three but I'll pass on this one.

Hmm, more DVD-18 goodness. I want this set, but I will wait to hear how many playback problems people have first.

Same here...that's why I'm hoping Costco will carry it (as they have previously stocked most, if not all, of Universal's Franchise Collections so far.)

Did anyone who bought Volume 4 get an insert or booklet inside? There is an empty pouch and the titles are written above and below the pouch, but there's absolutely nothing that tells you which movies are on what discs or side. Obviously you can take an educated guess, but I'm surprised how unhelpful this is.

That's why I'm wondering if it's supposed to come with an insert and they forgot mine, or if they don't care if they make things difficult on the consumer to save a few pennies?

Just received mine from DDD. The only insert was a TCM ad.

Thanks, garolo, for the speedy reply! My Vol. 4 didn't even have the TCM ad inside.

From this thread it's becoming pretty clear that soon almost no DVDs will come with inserts to save a few pennies. Instead of having a thread saying which DVDs DON'T have inserts, it would be easier to have a thread saying which DVDs DO have inserts because those with inserts will soon be the minority (if they aren't already).
