So people would rather get a little lithograph, instead of the 60min long extra documentary that Walmart is offering?

When the exclusive bonus disc costs extra, sure I do. I hardly ever buy dvds from WalMart anyways, and this tactic will definately keep me away from there.

I have no intention of spending an extra 5 dollars on the walmart bonus dvd. If it was the same price as BB's offer, most likely I would buy it but Walmart's exclusives always costs about 5 dollars more than what everyone is selling it for.

Has it been said precisely what the extra material is on the Wally World disc? If I recall correctly, the SW trilogy is being re-released without the bonus disc... is it possible that all the material on that is just being ported over to the Wally World version?

If not, and it's original material, I'll opt for paying more at Wally World. That litho looks rather lame to me.

I'd rather have the lithograph instead of a fullscreen copy of the movie and the bonus disc.

Why would you want the fullscreen copy of the movie?

Oh, that's right... Wal*Mart ONLY sells fullscreen dvds... gotcha

Who said anything about it being Widescreen? Their widescreen copies of "Land of the Dead" UR DC included "Boogeymen", as did the Widescreen, single disc versions of "Batman Begins", including an animated Batman bonus disc.

As for me, one of two things;

A) Suck it up, and pay $4 for an exclusive DVD that will probably be disco'ed after a little bit a la "Beneath the Dome".

B) Double dip; Get the bonus DVD and the litho, while selling off the extra copy of the movie for about the same price you paid.

Not too hard when you think about it. The litho is indeed pretty lame, IMO. If it were an actual scene, like the Cinderella RZ litho, I'd be more inclined to purchase.

Niiiiice!!! I'll pick up that. Not aware of the bonus doc at WalMart -- will have to check that out.

Anyone know a good place to go to get a frame for these BB lithos? They're pretty big.

Why do people think Walmart will charge more for the bonus? I've gotten bonus stuff before from Walmart for the same regular price

It's a YMMV issue with WalMart. Some stores charge more, some don't.

And, according to walmart.com, Episode 3 is widescreen. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Eh... will just go for the wal-mart disc. I would't display the lithograph anyways and I certainly don't need any more SW collectables to keep boxed up in the closet.

I loved the Incredibles litho (got a great frame for it, to put up in the movie area), but I'm wondering from the BB page if this litho will really look good...
