FYE Sweeney Todd Steelbook

ON SALE already at select FYE stores for $24.99. Some stores broke the release date. There may be a rebate on Tuesday 4/1 official release date, but if you buy it now you will not qualify for the rebate. When I went to one of the stores in Bronx, NY today, there was only a handful so I reserved one for $5.00 and that copy is mine on Tuesday. I saw the guy put my name and wrap that copy to put away. Hopefully there will be more in stock come Tuesday.

Meanwhile, here's what the front and back look like:

Front:


Back:



Personally, I like the international steelbook cover much better. Depp is great and all, but I don't need him on my cover Sorry Depp fans!

Fleet Street Giftset

Picked this up today. Price in store is $33.99. It is the full book (30.00 retail) with the 2-disc dvd. Dvd has the slipcover and both dvd and book sit in a cardboard case which opens up on the side so you can slide both out. Sorry, no pictures since I am at work. My store only had about 10 copies. Sticker on set says limited to 5000.

Just got mine from the Eureka (CA) FYE. $22.99 and a $5- mail-in rebate.
So far, I haven't been able to pre-submit the rebate (the same happened with the South Park Imaginationland DVD, which is now easily "pre-submittable").

$22.99 - 10% Backstage Pass - $2.00 coupon for pre-ordering = $18.69 x 1.06 tax = $19.81 - $5.00 MIR = $14.81 = good deal =

Got the Costco exclusive as well. It is $33.99. It's a very nice set though. Roughly the size of the Dreamgirls exclusive they had. My store had 1 box of them (roughly 10 like Mark said).

Got the Costco exclusive and am happy with it, price-wise, but for those that think that this is a special exclusive book, you can easily purchase it separately on Amazon if you wish. The package includes the 2 Disk DVD plus the hard cover Sweeny Todd book authored by Mark Salisbury that goes for $19.80 at Amazon new or $14.99 used. Just thought I'd mention this for those of you that are not Costco members or near a Costco store, that the exclusivity of this package is the price, it would cost you $42.79 at Amazon versus $33.99 at Costco for about an 8 dollar savings. So if its all about the DVD for you, skip the Costco exclusive and just buy the DVD. The book is not a limited collectors item. However if you are a Sweeny Todd fan, then by all means buy the package, because the price is hard to beat and the book is truely beautiful and very well done.

That's ridiculous, dude. And I remember that episode well... What are they going to do for you?

Picked up both the FYE Steelbook and the Costco set today. I wish the HD-DVD version was still coming out. I guess we will have to wait awhile for the Blu-Ray. 1080p has spoiled me.....
