I have seen all of those, The hitchiker sets were very rare.

Panic Room 3 disc and Batman serials were with a shipment back around Xmas of last year. So chances are they are long gone now.

I'm curious,How many of you actually seen these titles at BL?
Most have been here at one time or another although in very limited supply. I don't remember seeing "The Hitchhiker" sets or "Guys and Dolls", but I have seen the others. This is at a store that typically gets stuff 3-6 weeks after being posted here, if at all. Most of the titles you posted were gone within 3 days.

I went to two BL in the past few days, and sew all the MGM titles you mentioned.
I saw only one copy of Guys and Dolls at each of the two BL.

Is The Brood in the newer batch of MGM titles or the older batch?

I've never seen the Hitchhiker sets or the Batman Serial, but I've seen all the others. The larger Big Lots I went to last week had a much better selection, including about 5 "Guys & Dolls" and maybe 10 "Howling II"s. I probably overlooked Boxcar Bertha, since they had just about all the other recently-mentioned titles. The much smaller BigLots near me that I usually go to didn't get a lot of the titles, though. "Panic Room" is the only one on your list I know they had there.

I saw all of these yesterday.

the brood and scanners are part of the new mgm set. the dead zone is on-sale at best buy this week for $5, so for $11 you can get a good start on an early cronenberg collection.

For some reason our area was blanketed with the "Batman" serials and "The Professional". I bet I saw 50-75 of each title during that run. Never seen copy one of "Panic Room".

UPC#550014449 DVD MGM 256 PIECE DISPLAY
These were small tower displays in the Derry store (probably holds 256)
I think these were also in the Methuen store, but I didn't buy anything, so I can't remember the exact UPC's. They also didn't have the display set up, the new assortment was crammed into what was left of the prior Sony bin and their regular media rack.


Seems titles can appear in either or both assortments, not sure if there's an assortment # in the middle 550014448 too? Or any real rhyme or reason as to the assortments we get...and what's in them.
Not that it really matters, just making another observation. I bought a couple of the newer MGM titles (Code Of Silence & Desperate Hours) and they now have UPC#550014450 DVD MGM 256 PIECE DISPLAY
so looks like the UPC's are sequential for these assortments.

I'm curious if anyone who bought the newer Midnight Movies titles if these have the same UPC? I didn't see any of those when I spotted these newer titles, I wonder why.
