Simpsons Season 20 is on sale, just in time! Does that go for Blu-Ray as well?

I'll probably pick up "Where The Wild Things Are" and I think I've been talked into the Target Exclusive for "2012."

Question.

Reading these pages I've noticed something. When Target gives exclusive bonus discs for Blu-Rays, they tend to be standard definition - DVDs. I'm wondering if that bonus disc for "2012" is the same. I might just buy the BR and ditch it (Ebay and such) for the extra disc. DVD owners are getting shafted on that. Might as well make the best of the situation; put together a two disc set.

Do you think it's likely that the 3rd is a DVD?

According to their listing for it on their website, it is a Blu-ray Disc, not a DVD:
http://www.target.com/2012-Special-D..._keywords=2012

Now, that is not to say that their listing might not be correct...but no one can be completely positive until Tuesday when someone buys it and opens one up for 100% confirmation....

Wonder what the chances my Target will have the Wii Fit Plus with board. Anyone know what's going on with this game? Amazon has it out of stock for quite a while now, with used prices in the 170+ range

edit: whoohoo! found one! Had to ask a clerk to find one in the back, apparently people are calling and asking to put them on hold

If there is someone buying the Blu-Ray exclusive for "2012"; could you post if the third disc is in fact a BR or DVD? Thank you.

I couldn't even find the darn thing! My store had at least 50 copies of the Deluxe BD, but NOT ONE with the exclusive bonus disc. I'll try another store tonight...

It's entirely possible that they just took the slipcovers off of all of the copies at your store. There's no way to signify if a copy is or isn't the 2-disc version without it, I believe.

Four copies at my store at 2:00 PM. Has a slipcover that says three disc set, but it actually has four discs if you count the digital copy. Yes, the Discovery Channel doc is on Blu-Ray!

Just be careful when you pick up a copy and check the wording on the top of the slipcover...there is a sticker on the slipcover that says Target Exclusive, as well. I saw some two disc sets with a slipcover, and others without. Talk about confusing!
