Re: Big Lots Part 4

The bottom line is we live in a capitalistic society, but gloating in this forum doesn't win you friends. I look at this as a means to try to help each other out and I'd rather see a fellow DVD Talker get a needle in a haystack rather than go through the trouble of trying to profit off of strangers.

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I think the only way that simpsonfan can win on that deal is to sit on them for a couple of years and wait for them to go totally out of print and very scarce and then! pray they dont get a blu-ray release. seems to me the only discs that bring big bucks are movies with a cult following that are totalyl out of print and have been so for some time. a couple of examples are matthew bright's sequal to freeway "confessions of a trick baby" cant find a used copy at a reasonable price anywhere, and anothe movie I have been looking for for some time now, paul newman's final film "where the money is". perhaps a better way for him to make some money would be to scavage the second hand stores, going through the mounds of run of the mill crappy movies looking for some real rare gems. or he can join all the idiiots I still see on craigslist trying get $1000 for a copy of michael jackson's thriller on vinyl, which I still cant understand being it was pretty much the biggest selling album of all time

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I finally found the complete Wonder Woman. They had about 5 left as of 11:30 AM at Nasa rd and 45 South in the Houston area. This store actually put out a whole bunch of stuff. They had a huge display of box sets next to the dvd rack. Also found for the first time were Blade series, Drew Carey S1, and Friends S5. They also had a bunch of the usual stuff like Joey, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Scooby Doo, Dukes of hazzard, Six Feet Under, NFL sets, Smallville dvd and blu-ray, and a bunch more.

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I was right by the Big Lots in Monroeville PA today so I went in to take a look. None of the Warner classics or TV sets folks mention here. Don't know if they've been cleaned out or never had them. Several copies of K-Pax, and fullscreen versions of Wimbledon, lots of other junk.

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I hit another store today and got the following:

Pinky & The Brain V1
Chisum (Snapper)
Pat and Mike (Snapper)
Super Friends The Legendary Super Powers Complete Series
Challenge of the Super Friends Complete First Season
The Bravados
The Comancheros

I see The OC S2 and West Wing S2 in almost every store I've visited, and I saw more Super Bowl sets. If the guy who I sent PayPal money to for Roots comes through, I think I've gotten just about everything I want from the current sales.

The Right Stuff [2-disc set]
Sweet And Lowdown [wide & full]
A Mighty Wind [with no upc gash]

Re: Big Lots Part 4

Found a restock of the TV DVD's today (and they weren't from the truck that came in today as it was still being unloaded):

Pinky & The Brain V1
Animaniacs V1
Superbowl (didn't really pay attention, but they had 3 or 4 different sets)
Scooby Movies
Thundercats 1 & 3

Still no Dallas! I think that they have more in the backroom and are only bringing it out as the shelf allows. Going back tonight right before they close to see if they put more out.....then back again tomorrow.

Super Bowl sets (Sorry, not sure which ones)

Re: Big Lots Part 4

Hell... I'd love to snag a Babylon 5 Movie set for $6. Those bastards never go on sale.

Unfortunately, my Big Lots stores haven't been getting any of these TV boxed sets yet...

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I havent found Super Bowl I-X either. That must be one of the rare ones. I bought the other three sets.

How about Animaniacs #3 and Pink and the Brain #3. Are these included or is it only the first two sets?

Re: Big Lots Part 4

Has anyone seen "Ride the High Country" Randolph Scott western in any of the Big Lots stores?

Would love to update my collection with more westerns and older classics, a few box sets would be good as well. Need Magnum PI season 8 to finish that series out, still waiting on the last few of JAG and NCIS. Then Macgyver.

Geez! Your so lucky! I just stopped by my local Big Lots in Central Jersey where I was lucky enough last week to snag Animaniacs V1 and Pinky & The Brain V1, but this time I was disappointed. There was no box sets there, I'm really aching to get the other volume sets of Animaniacs and Pinky as well as the Complete Series of Wonder Woman. The only thing I walked away with was the double feature of "The Boogeyman" & "The Return of the Boogeyman". Oh well, at least I didn't leave empty handed.

Re: Big Lots Part 4

I called the other store in town yesterday around 6pm and they said no the sets weren't out... I went in today around 8:30pm and ..... I saw a couple in the normal section of DVDs but no motherload... I asked if they were somewhere else or if they were going to put more out... and was told they were in a different section of the store... aaaahhhh...

Snagged
Joey S1
Friends S8 for the wife (Still need S1, S2, S4, & S10)

Also still looking to find Smallville S6 Blu and OC S3 that have been mentioned before...

I asked when they put them out... and they put them out...... YESTERDAY at 6pm... and they told me that they had all but S1 of Friends... and sold them all today.... aaaahhh ... why woudl they tell me they have not put the TV sets out yet if indeed they either just put them out or were in process of putting them out... argh !....
