Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

I was wondering why Gravity Falls complete was so cheap at $20 but then I saw it had basically no extras at all. Not worth it.

To put a finer point on it, the Max Headroom set was missing disk 5 and the 16-page booklet. The Marx Brothers set was missing the 40-page booklet. I decided to suck up the Marx Brothers loss (maybe there's somewhere online where I can download and print my own??), but couldn't stomach the missing disk. I returned to Wal-Mart yesterday (I'd bought it from an out-of-town store and decided to wait until I visited that area again) and presented my opened Max Headroom set to Customer Service for a refund. I presented my case very clearly and walked away with a gift card and nearly no hassle. If anybody else feels ripped off (with this or any other "budget" Shout Factory set), I hope you will do the same.

Same here - and I didn't buy it.
