Ya, I'd assume he meant these are the exclusive Rorschach/Dr.Manhattan head packages.

Thanks OP!

Right now on Bestbuy.com, Watchmen BD is also listed as $22.99. You can do in-store pickup and save the extra couple dollars.

I wonder if you can get the Tales of the Black Freighter Steelbook for $5 with Watchmen purchase, or if it's the regular case?

Luckily, the art is identical, so it may not be too hard to convince a cashier.

I still see many copies left at my local stores, Steelbooks aren't too popular around here, I guess.

I will be picking up Watchmen for the Dr. Manhattan packaging. I'll also pick up a regular BD copy to actually watch.

Also, does anyone know how limited the exclusive packaging is? Or if it's limited at all? I figure I won't have too much of a problem picking it up, but you never know.

Anyway, thanks OP!

If that $5 deal would have been for the Blu's BB would have gotten my Watchmen money.

anything of note for the TV on DVD sale online? The stuff pictured in the ad still higher than my price-point.

Agreed...Iron Man packaging was terrible. I exchanged mine for the regular one.

+2

its a real crappy packaging ... i was forced to buy the Dark Knight in the Batman mask simply because it was 19.99 ... and that movie has almost never been on sale ... the cheapest ive seen it was 17.99 BD @ Frys Electronics but i didnt have my ps3 back then .... bastards

The Incredible Hulk Packaging was probably the worst ... the discs kept falling out so i put it up on ebay sold it and got me the BD version for 14.99

Re: Best Buy DVD/BluAds (7/19 - 7/25)

Question:

Does Best Buy price match other stores still? $24.99 is above what Amazon and Fry's are advertising. It's easier for me to run by the local Best Buy. Do I need to just show them an ad or how is it done?

Thanks

Does anyone know if the comic book that's being offered with the new Blu-ray edition of 300 is a re-print of the entire graphic novel?

This is going to sound stupid, but I'm new at this.

How exactly do you price match? And will Best Buy price match for the head packages since they are BB exclusive?
