Thanks! I am in for Star Trek: The Next Generation Motion Pictures Collection and Star Trek (TOS): Season 2 on Blu-Ray!

Thanks OP!

Even though I have the Classic Media Collection/Set, Gojira in Blu-Ray is rather tempting for $13.

Exactly what new Star Trek season is requiring me to catch up by buying First Contact on Blu-Ray?

Re: Best Buy ad scan 9/20 - 9/26

I can't see the cost of Terminator: SCC.

It's $44 for the bluray
$36 for the steelbook?
$19 for the regular dvd edition?

If that's the case why the great disparity between the steelbook and regular dvd edition?

I hate it because I already have the steelbook for the 1st season (It was only ~$20) but I really don't want to pay $36 for the second season.

i think the ad states $19.99 for season 1. so im guessing either the exclusive packaging or the regular edition on sd is $36.99. but i dont think it matters lol, as it has been pretty much confirmed that terminator scc s2 is not a steelbook, but rather a metal slipsleeve (similar to smallville recently).

So it is definitely like the Smallville package?
If so that saves me from having to get it release day. The Smallvill metal case kinda sucked. It crushed my case inside it.

Would love to get Terminator and 30 Rock season 1 and 2, but a little light on funds.

Castle is good, I enjoyed watching all 10 episodes for last spring, but not sure if it has much replay value for me.

Are Target and Best Buy just not carrying The Haunted World of El Superbeasto? It isn't in either ad.

If it's not a steelbook, then it's false advertising.

Looks like I'm getting 30 Rock at Target since its 2 bones cheaper.

Also, that seems like a really high price for Terminator. Hopefully it'll be down by xmas time.

if it looks as bad as the DVD version, i don't see the point. Did they do a full restoration?

Well, not only that, but sadly there is no new season of Terminator starting you would need to catch up to see either....

BB ad organization FAIL!

Trek Season 2, great price. I will be getting a price match from Movie Stop, they will undercut BB by about a buck fifty.

Just passing it along.
Later
It has already been confirmed by johnsun that this is false advertising and Scanavo should have advised Best Buy that it is indeed not a SteelBook™.
