B&N.com has it for a decent price. And all 3 of this year's Disney Treasures are part of the B2G1F sale. Be sure to use a coupon from the B&N thread... Should work out to an average of under $20 each... ($47.65 total for me, but I have a membership and a B&N MC so can use the 20% coupon)

Using the above link I find that Disney Treasures Dr. Syn is currently only available for in store pickup at Best Buy. It says it's not available for shipping. Never saw that before. None of the stores near me have it available for in store pick up.

It is also no longer available at Barnes and Noble.

You can order Dr Syn from DVD Pacific but the stock status is on order so who knows if they will get additional stock.

I found 2 copies of this at FYE of all places - just the other day. And it was new stock, because they didn't have it a week before Christmas.

I found a new copy at a nearby Suncoast Video store 2 days before Christmas...that first run ran out so quick. There is a good number available on ebay now.

Why did Disney take this out of print so quickly? It was out for what, a week? I planned on renting it before I bought it since I'd never seen it, and didn't even know it was OOP until now.

Disney Treasures are always limited editions. They made this set very limited and it sold out. I guess they did not anticipate demand. They have often produced too many Disney Treasures sets. You can still find copies of Your Host, Walt Disney and some of the others even though they came out several years ago. In this case they went in other direction and produced too few.

Perhaps this was a marketing decision. If Disney Treasure sets continue in 2009, people may buy them
the first day or week they come out for fear they will sell out.

Have they ever re-released one of those once it has sold out?

Not that I've ever seen... never rereleased. I've also never seen a Treasures DVD be recalled before, as what I was told from Target employees. They sold me one of the 3 they had left because I had asked for it. They pulled it from the back room.

Re: Disney Treasures Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow Back In Stock At Bestbuy.com

Not exactly a re-release, but Davy Crockett (one of the first tin releases) is also available in a standard two-disc set...kind of.

I believe that the 'regular' edition contains the edited-together versions of the original series & the Mike Fink/River pirates sequels, whereas the tins contain the full episodes.

Given the response to the latest limited wave, one would think that $-obsessed Disney would consider releasing "Dr. Syn" as a stand-alone release. Of course, they'd probably only release the 'feature' version, which cuts out about 1/3 of the originals (it's included as the second disc in the tin). However, it seems that those who think that limiting the releases to give incentive for quick sellouts is behind the marketing decisions. Re-releasing the sold-out versions would be counterproductive to this stategy.

I'm still waiting for Disney to release the complete Swamp Fox, Elfego Baca, Texas John Slaughter, etc. It was nice to get a sampling of the first two on one tin, but it was also frustrating to see incomplete releases (especially Swamp Fox, which tended to have more continuity).

Re: Disney Treasures Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow Back In Stock At Bestbuy.com

I wonder if the low production numbers for Dr. Syn were a result of how the other live-action Treasure titles sold. I know virtually all Disney collectors go nuts over their animation titles with very little if any interest for live-action. I'm the exact opposite. Dr. Syn is a sentimental favorite of mine and was one of the "holy grails" of Disney live-action.

Given that, I'm really surprised at how much interest there appears to be for Dr. Syn. Especially since before it was released I couldn't find anyone who had even heard of the film before.

I think you nailed it. But then again, Disney is known for strange shit like this so anything is possible.

Also to the posters above, the Disney Movie Club has some of those OOP sets...I got Mickey Mouse black & white volume 1 from there not too long ago.

Re: Disney Treasures Dr. Syn, Alias the Scarecrow Back In Stock At Bestbuy.com

I received this as a Christmas gift. I had to write down the name exactly and let my mother know when and where she needed to go to find it. It was purchased during release week at Sam's. The clerk had to go to the back to find a copy. Have looked at both discs and I am so glad to have this. This is also a sentimental favorite of mine. I remember watching this while Secret Agent was a top show at our house. I was already enjoying Patrick McGoohan from his other Disney excursion - The 3 Lives of Thomasina. Have enjoyed the actor in his various roles since.

Great to relive childhood favorites.

Do the ones from Disney come with the tin or just the dvd case?

Search for "walt disney treasures" and it should be in there. That is pretty much all I did.

Unless it went out of stock, which is also possible.

While it may be listed, customers' experiences would indicate that it is not actually in-stock: http://www.epinions.com/pr-Online_St...rDuperClub_com

Additionally, Dr. Syn seems to be popping up on bestbuy.com every other day or so. So keep an eye out for it.

Surprisingly, I just got a shipping notice today from Best Buy for Dr. Syn. I ordered it back when this thread first popped up and was quickly notified on 1/5/09 that it was on backorder. I'll be curious to see what arrives at my door.
