Wallace & Gromit: Were-Rabbit Walmart Price

The price for the 2 disc is $19.94 at the Walmart in Bel Air, MD, so you can do a pricematch at Best Buy. But ask the manager and 1 and 2 discs should ring up at $14.99.

The two disk set in Cleveland Ohio at my local Walmart was also $19.94 with the single disk being $16.88.

Note the second disk is "Gromit's Tail Waggin' DVD", a Walmart exclusive, and contains the bonus material found on the UK version 2 disk version of the movie (specs for the UK version listed here:
http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...3#post6743203).

Here's what it says for the UK bonus disk. I do not see any indication on the "Gromit's Tail Waggin' DVD" about it containing "Stage Fright" though:
* Making of the Were-Rabbit (9:45mins)
* Cracking Contraptions (23:49mins)
o The Soccamatic
o The Tellyscope
o The Autochef
o The Snoozatron
o The Turbo Diner
o The Bully Proof Vest
o The 525 Crackervac
o A Christmas Cardomatic
o The Snowmanotron
o Shopper 13
* The Amazing World of Wallace & Gromit (15:06mins)
* Stage Fright (11:07mins)

I did not see the two disk version containing the new movie and the original shorts. Also, Walmart this week did not have a flyer (at least by me, so I don't know if you'll be able to pricematch anywhere).

Hope this helps anyone.

The Walmart I went to the 2 disc set was $20.

Also, incase anyone is going to hit the Van Nuys, CA WalMart, don't believe the sales people when they tell you they are sold out of W&G. Go to the toy department where there is a nice big stand full of DVDs and bonus DVDs. I was there just now and they are very well stocked.

How is the 2 disc set up? Is it just plastic wrapped on (the 2nd disc that is) or is it inside? and does the 2 disc have a slip cover?

It's in a seperate case which is attached horizontally to the movie. That case has it's own slip cover titled "Gromit's Tail-Waggin' DVD". Actually the Walmart near me had Wallace and Gromit bonus sets, as well as sets for Doom and Waiting... this week. So it's a pretty full display. All the sets were $13.87.

Thanks for the info! Picked it up yesterday for $16.88 at my local WM. Stage Fright is actually a special feature on the main W&GCotWR DVD. There are some other special features on the bonus disc not listed here (Gromit's favorite scenes, learn to draw...etc) which makes this WM exclusive well worth it and equal to or maybe even better than the R2 version.

I managed to pick up the 2-pack at the Pleasant Hill Super-Wal-Mart in Duluth, GA, for $12.77 (they were selling the single and the 2-pack for the same price for some odd reason).

Picked up Were Rabbit widescreen with bonus disc tonight for $19.96. Tried to get the cool Corpse Bride cover when it came out last week, but my Wal-Mart only had fullscreen of that one.

My Walmart had the fullscreen with the bonus disc for $15 and the single versions of both FS and WS for $20. Makes a ton of sense to me.

Only two-disk I could find was with the full screen version, so I ended up buying just the one disk.

finally saw this at my local walmart. the bonus disk looks pretty much like a port of the R2 Crackling Invention DVD.. Incredible disc - one of the main reasons I went region free.. These are brilliant and hysterical.. definitely worth getting if you don't already have the R2 disc. As for me, I will wait until the were-rabbit price goes down...

Yeah, finally a bonus disc worth getting. Typically the bonus discs are crappy with just a few scraps that didn't make it on the regular DVD, but this one is excellent and the DVD should have been released with it in the first place.

Just an update. For anyone in the southern Maine area, I went to the Scarborough location today and found that they had put out a big stack of the widescreen 2-disc sets. During release week I only found the fullscreen sets, but I guess since those have sold out, they put out the widescreen ones now. The price was still $14.99 for it, too. It made my day.
