I can't believe how many gaps in my Hanna-Barbera collection I have been able to fill in. Keeping my fingers crossed for another Big Lots restock for more treasures.
Thanks for the tip.

Re: Big Lots Part 5

Between this thread, the BL exchange thread, and actually being at a Big Lots, it seems that 23-1/2 hrs of my day are taken up!

Re: Big Lots Part 5

My wife picked a great weekend for us to visit her parents that live two states over. I stopped at 6 BLs along the way and found almost everything I wanted, especially the Hanna Barbara stuff. Each store seemed to have that one title that the others didn't. Outside of my hometown area (Cleveland) I didn't see any of the $10 sets on the road and I really, really wanted to find that Looney box (like everyone else here) but I can't complain as I found just about everything else listed. Vacation is just around the corner so I'm looking forward to some serious DVD watching.

Re: Big Lots Part 5

Anyone finding much in Orange County/LA County border area? Placentia BL @ Yorba Linda/Rose had a restock. Had a pretty vast selection of the $6 sets, but nothing I really wanted. It's one of the few stores that has had anything though. I've been going a few times a week to other BLs in the surrounding area but there's never anything, so I'm not sure if I'm just missing out because people are getting there before me or if the shipments they get are pretty bare. Every store seems to have those Dukes/Joey sets, but not much else.

Thanks for the heads up! Looks like I'm hitting Edgewood tomorrow. Having all the Flintstones would be awesome.

Has anyone spotted Looney Tunes in MD?

Re: Big Lots Part 5

Is anybody finding any of the Hanna Barbera sets anywhere in North Carolina? I'm in the Charlotte area and it seems like I'm finding none of the good stuff!

I don't understand why all the people picking up Friends aren't picking up Joey as well. Friends sets don't last a day.

My sets were individually shrinkwrapped, so this was no issue for me....

Not in the Eldersburg or Westminster stores.

If you see any seasons of Tales From The Crypt or the $10 Kubrick boxset I'd be glad to work out a trade with you for them

They did have 4 different Tales from the crypt Saturday but I didn't buy any because I was too busy buying the others.
Well it looks like you made a good decision to get em on Saturday.
I was gonna go on Saturday too but I went to Friends of Coal Car Show instead.I guess I can take solace in getting Pat Whites autograph and shaking his hand and seeing all those cool cars.

Back to the dvds ..I'm surprised at how fast they went.
I went back this evening to grab Wacky Races and a few others for a friend. In the 4 or so hrs after leaving it was even more barren.
Im gonna have to check every other day now for a restock.
Happy Hunting all!

I'm in California and have found both Crypt and Lois & Clark. Gotta go to the right stores at the right time. There's a lot of people buying these to resell them for a higher price so you gotta make sure you're quick.

I think some of the Big Lots stores here in San Diego might very well be waiting until a few day before the new sale kicks to put out all the new goodies. The Big Lots I've been to these past new days have not put anything new out. Yet, I've heard about stores in Poway and Mira Mesa putting out the new stuff already. It's definiitely frustrating getting your hopes up, only to find nothing in the end. But I think we'll hit paydirt this coming week!

Are you in San Diego, sdfan21?

I hit up my same 3 stores every day and there hasn't been anything new at all since the first batch on the 9th. One of the stores even got ride of the 4 sided stand they had set up in the middle and another only has a few Dukes left over on their almost bare displey. I hope they do have them and are waiting til that ad, better late then never. I found almost the entire series of Friends at one of those stores. I'll keep going till the well is reported dry though!

ugh.
I haven't seen any Tales From The Crypt since the beginning. I live close to the Turfland store, so I've been checking it regularly and will probably keep doing so for a while longer.

Thanks for returning that Smallville S7 Blu-ray. I picked it up Thursday night and traded on here for a set that I needed.

Re: Big Lots Part 5

I finally opened this thread last night to see what all the deals were, my BL isn't in the best part of town so was trying to avoid it, but finally went today. The Salinas, CA location just had the OC sets, a few West Wings, Dukes of Hazard, a Full House, and a Drew Carrey. I kind of want to check out the Watsonville location but I never go that way, maybe tomorrow though. Has anyone been to the San Jose area ones and found anything?

Re: Big Lots Part 5

Checked out a few Big Lots over the past couple of days days and only found The War at Home for $3. I get off work early today, and I'm off tomorrow, so I will definitely be scouring the local Big Lots looking for:

The Stanley Kubrick Collection
The Powerpuff Girls: Complete Series
Space Ghost and Dino Boy: Complete Series
Birdman and the Galaxy Trio: Complete Series
Jonny Quest: Complete First Season

I'm not hopeful though. =(

Also, does anyone know when they get trucks? Does it vary from store-to-store?

Re: Big Lots Part 5

Hi all, I don't post that much here, but I just felt the need to help out my fellow BL DVDTalkers. I'm in the Orlando/Central Florida area, and did a check yesterday or these stores, all of which seem pretty cleaned out from the sale.

Longwood/SR17-92: not much at all, still some OC, a few Drew Carey S1, Dallas S7 (in amaray cases, like they were meant for Blockbuster rentals)

Sanford/SR17-92: a little more, a couple of Superfriends V2, Tracey Takes On S1, Flintstones S2&3.

Edgewater Dr: very nice store, very clean! But, picked over. A few Superfriends V2, Penelope Pitstop.

Casselberry/SR436: Flintstones S3 (all unwrapped, but in good shape).

Colonial/Waterford Lakes: Worst of all, didn't see ANY boxsets, very few DVDs, and no real sign that they've ever had them.


Over the last week or so, I have found some of the titles, but have never seen any Smallville sets, WW, Looney Tunes/$10 sets, Wacky Races, Batman Animated, etc. I don't know if it's just unlucky, or they're all being bought up by traders/sellers.

I'll be checking out a few again on the way home from work today, so I'll post when I have updates.
