Went to the Springfield, MA Big Lots and got two of each. One for me, one for my brothers birthday. Nothing much else good there though. I think there was one of each left if any one was in the area.

Thanks for the heads up on this guys, I am a big python fan and these 2 sets are a great find. had to go to 5 different big lots locations to find them, but was well worth the hunt. also in my travels found a 3 disk set of 24 episodes of the tv show "White Fang" while at a ross store for 3.99

The only Big Lots in my area has a DVD selection that even a dollar store would be ashamed of.

Anybody with access to these want to hook a Python fan up?

Do I get bonus points for ending all my sentences with a preposition?

edit - Got a set from one of you friendly people, thanks there is much of!

trevor, I would hook you up if I could actually find another set. After going to 5 big lots stores, I could only find 1 set for myself. It seems that these big lots stores have more vhs than anything else, who the hell wants vhs anymore anyway?????

Snagged the only copy of each at the small Big Lots near me (Midwest City, OK). Thanks OP. I'll check back in a few days and if there are any more I'll grab them for other dvdtalkers.

Have they been getting more in? I made the rounds last Saturday, and didn't find ANY. Wondering if I should check back again...

Except for advertised specials, I think they leave a lot up to the individual store manager's discretion. That might only be the case at the store near me. It's pretty small compared to other Big Lots I've been to and even though they tend to overcrowd the aisles and shelves, I suspect they have a lot more stuff they can't put out. They seem to be constantly restocking, so I'd check back if I were you.

Scratch the Brooklyn Center (Twin Cities) store. Nothing interesting but the 2-disc Special Edition of "King of New York" at $4.99.

sorry to quote myself from earlier in this thread but you should definitely check back at some of the stores you're looking at. as i said in my earlier post, the store i finally found them at had one the first week i went in- and the second one 10 days later after they re-stocked, so i was capable of getting both but it took 2 visits to the same store.

also, i had been to 5 other big lots in the area before i found one that stocked these. i think it's somewhat random which stores are getting them, but it seems to be the stores with decent dvd/media displays. some of the smaller stores don't seem to care too much about the media section and have a crappy (mostly vhs) selection from what i've seen.

it does seem from reading these posts that these are turning up nationally at big lots, and not just regionally in certain areas of the US.

Thanks for the great tip! Was finally able to locate copies at the 3rd Big Lots I tried. Also found the Turner Classic Movies version of Scene-It (discontinued full game version) for $19.99.

Still no go this week for me, but I did find a copy of "That's Entertainment" for $4.99, so that was a pretty good find.

I finally found one of them (1948 Show). Also saw a 4-disc Providence collection for $3.99. I passed on it, but it's a good deal...

No luck at the Tri-County location in Cincinnati, either.

Checked three around north Austin - only found one copy of "Do Not Adjust", but I also picked up "Spiritual Kung Fu" for a dollar (me = sucker for old Jackie Chan movies). Might go back to pick up Cowboy Bebop 6 later.

Sigh...no luck at the Colerain Avenue (Northgate Mall area) location in Cincinnati, although they did have A Very Long Engagement for $4.99.

My big lots had a grand total of zero (0) DVDs, but about two hundred xmas music CDs for $3.99 apiece.

I really wish I could find these... it would be great if anybody could find me one of each, or sell after they're done watching them, but I'm not holding my breath.
