I can't believe that no US retailers got Clash of the Titans in a steelbook. WTF?

All the 2-Disc Special Edition DVDs have 2 bonus episodes from Batman - The Animated Series S1. Did this Target version have another 2 bonus ones, meaning 4 episodes altogether?

Supposedly the Blu-ray version has a total of 4 bonus episodes from Batman - The Animated Series S1.

Thanks!

Bestbuy Canada

Batman UTRH DVD/BR with Red Hood figure

But what's up with the price? $32.99/$39.99 CDN and the Bestbuy US DVD is $19.99 USD?

Also, is the Target cover the same as the Futureshop graphic novel cover?

Thanks

Definitely has two extra episodes that are listed as Target exclusive on the DVD menu -- one from Batman: TAS and one from The Batman. The Blu-ray also had a similar sticker.

Have it.

My Best Buy only had two pre-orders for DVD (now one), the rest were for Blu.

The mini hard cover book is fifty pages long. As the book's name reads, "Lost: Artifacts"; this print is image heavy - pictures of props used used on the series. It's a promo of sort for a much larger book, "Lost: Encyclopedia", 400 pages - goes on sale on August 24th. Very cool. I might have to get this.

One of the pages here is on the dagger prop, used to kill Jacob or Man In Black. The knife's sheath is ornated - at the center is an image of what appears to be a polar bear. Nice touch.

The other big news was missed by the fuzzy photo. The store will have an exclusive bonus disc for season six. I'm hoping, fingers crossed, that this is the extra disc from the big box set. It's a slap in the face for fan who bought all the seasons to find out that they're not getting the whole deal. As I understand it two hour of additional extras (in the mega box).

And don't get started on 'wait until they release the complete series, then buy'. For a show to get renewed that's getting low ratings, studios look at season set sales to justify giving another year; another source of income for the show besides advertisers. If you just wait for that complete box you may be contributing to the show's early cancelation. This is what happened to "Firefly", DVD sales were fantastic and the studio gave them an opportunty, the feature film - which kinda tanked. The extras on that release was good, but sales were great, so the studio re-released a much better special edition. It matters.

Anyhow, it looks like I'm buying S6 here. Thanks for the info, Hindolio.

Thanks

I wasn't able to confirm this with my own eyes, but upon asking an FYE associate (who understands my need to know such things), I was informed that they had an exclusive poster giveaway with the Batman animated feature from last week.

Sorry for the brevity of this post, still insanely busy with work, looking forward to being a more regular participant again at some point...
