Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)
 
Part 7 was getting quite long with over 2500+ posts, so starting a Part 8. :D

Post all of your finds here, but please post your trades in the following thread:
The Unofficial "Big Lots" Exchange Thread

Here's the link to #7 for continuity.
And thread #6, #5, #4, #3, #2, and the original update thread.

I wonder if we set a record with that last thread?

I apologize if this has been mentioned...

As I was making my way through the many copies of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow I noticed one that had a Walmart Exclusive sticker. The WM version comes with a bonus DVD that has a short making of featurette and trailers not included on the SE disc. The disc isn't essential but might be worth the $3 to those that collect exclusives.

I keep forgetting if I have this exclusive or not, I'm thinking not. I'll hope to find one on my next visit to BL. Thanks for the mention!

I love how it goes from a new thread every six months or so and then BAM! The summer of 2009 will always be a classic. I say this as I peer at my complete Flintstones collections, Batman and Superman TAS collections, Thundercats, Superfriends, Wonder Woman complete collection, a ton of Hannah Barbera Golden Collections (although I never did find the fabled Looney Tunes set), Popeye, Night Court, Smallville, OC, Lois and Clark, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, and more.

As the thread starter, you're responsible for everything that is posted here. You also have to buy the beer.

I'm bored, so here are some numbers.

Busy threads still active


1463 posts http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hot-deals/5...-daily-37.html

Our own Big Lots Exchange thread at 1407 posts http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-exchang...thread-36.html

2490 http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hd-talk/546...nd-2-a-63.html

2150 http://forum.dvdtalk.com/hd-talk/542...atched-54.html

1373 http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-talk/56...atched-35.html

3469 http://forum.dvdtalk.com/video-game-...-night-87.html

Several more in the 1500 range but I'm not that bored.

In limited searching for the thread with the most ever views, it might be our own part #7 with ~261,000.

For largest thread ever; a smallball thread back in 2005 in Sports had 4,209 posts.

and JOEY! I'm not even being sarcastic. I didn't buy much from the summer of 2009, but Joey was my most prized find (obviously not for its scarcity, but because it had the most appeal to me).

Those were fun times (until it got a little ugly on the boards if I recall correctly). The same time that was going on, I went with the wife and visited the in-laws two states over. Stopped at a lot of BLs and found mucho good stuff. Never the legendary Looney Tunes box, but I can't complain. Big Lots will never top it.

Can anyone else confirm this? If so, what stores?

On a side note, picked up Molly Shannon's "Year of the Dog" for $3 today. Blind buy.

I had Moeyo Ken in my hands but couldn't find 4 I wanted so I put it back. That was at a store in the KC area.

Picked up The Candidate (full screen, snapper) and Knute Rockne for $3 each.

There is still one lonely Joey hanging out at my local BL. I've wanted to buy it just to put it out of it's misery many times.

I can see myself in the future "kids, it was the summer of 2009, an uneventful lazy Saturday afternoon as i headed to my local Big lots when the inexplicable happened"

Are they still doing 4 for $10 or are the dvds back to $3 a piece?

lostboys323 04-06-10 06:33 PM

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)
 
To answer your questions yes they still have the 4 for 10 deal at big lots. I might head there sometime this week hopefully they have restocked. :rock:

Yeah, the 4 for $10 deal should've ended last Saturday the 3rd.
