Black Friday 2018



That special time for collectors has come once again.

The time when we flock to our favorite stores looking to complete, get current or exposed to something new - at prices which won't hurt are collective wallets. And to give as Christmas presents and 2019 birthday gifts.

Another year, another HUNT. And this year we have all been touched by CaptainGibb, a Redditor who gave us all a nice gift...

He posted Target's BF movie pages this afternoon.

Good hunt my friends...

I have a big a$$ smile. Not only for having this data so early, but for finally completing a quest; over a decade in the seeking (off and on). Always at prices I wasn't willing to pay, until last month.

Bought off Ebay for four bucks - free shipping, used. For that price I was okay with having to mail it off, the discs resurfaced - still a bargin. But last night when I checked location status, a thought popped in my head, a 'what if'.

Sometimes Used doesn't mean the release itself, but the case; as in not listed as 'Like New'.

The package arrived. And my hopes turned into reality. Yes. Yes it is.

The case is messed up, but the wraparound and booklet are excellent. And the discs are MINT. I have moved them into a new, superior transparent case.



Thirteen years later, I now own "Star Maidens" the complete collection. This is a United Kingdom release, region 0. It has gotten a newer re-release, but the cover art is crap on a cracker. And I don't think it come with the thick booklet.

Very happy... just one problem.

This as a U.K. release and I'm here in Southern California with no way to play a PAL title. But that's okay. The biggest hurdle was getting the DVD. It's mine. And just as I hoped.

Now I need to get "Adam Adamant Lives!" the complete series, another U.K. title.

"Star Maidens" has a U.S. release, but it's a bootleg, masquerading as a real DVD and the bonus didn't carry over.

Oh well. One step at at time. And I have the out of print 1999 CD soundtrack.

It's been a good day.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Received a Big Lots email today promoting a preview of their Thanksgiving ad. Showed a small picture of a few random DVDs at $1.88 & $2.88. In other words, the same thing they've had the last few years.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Target is supposed to have a few UHDs for sale on Black Friday.

I felt Walmart last year was very lackluster for media items. Everyone is waiting to see if Best Buy, which has moved more and more away from physical media in the past few months, will have a big selection for Black Friday.

Re: Black Friday 2018

I just bought the Criterion Bergman blu-ray box. That's going to be more than half of my BF (& birthday) spending, due to finances. Also bought a new Jimi Hendrix cd/blu ray box.

I need seasons 6 and 7 of "Game Of Thrones", hope they have them. The TV section reads, "Over 90 Titles At This Price". Glad I waited on getting "The Walking Dead" S8. Ten bucks is much better than seventy.

Hope to find seasons of "The 100", "iZombie", "Reign", "The Originals", "Timeless" S2, "Lucifer", "Once Upon A Time", "Gotham", "Arrow", "The Last Ship", "The Shannara Chronicles", "Shameless", "Mr. Robot", "Animal Kingdom", "The Deuce", "Victoria", "Salvation", "BrainDead", "Zoo", "24: Legacy", "Teen Wolf", "American Gods", "Bates Motel", "True Detective" S2, "Emerald City"... and a few others.

Guess it's time to compile my wish/seek list. Today is the 8th and the major stores have unloaded their BF ads. Feels rather sooner than last year.

Good hunting friends.

By the way, $15.00 for a five quart crockpot. Last year was ten dollars for a 4qt model. Looks like I'm upgrading.

Circuit City was often very competitive on Black Friday with its deals. I probably spent more time at Circuit City than any other store on Black Fridays.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Big Lots set out their Black Friday display bin early in Buffalo. I think I was the first to raid them anyways, it was pretty full. Everything was either $1.88 or $2.88.

http://i63.tinypic.com/9axmxt.jpg

They had the other, pricer display bin out too, which had better movies and a lot of tv series. Everything was $10. I'll wait for actual Black Friday for those. From what I could remember, there was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Thor: Ragnarok, one of the Avengers (most liked the new one). Tv shows included Ray Donovan, Californication, Good Wife, Dexter and a bunch more.

Re: Black Friday 2018

I went back to pick up Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom and Star Wars: Last Jedi and they were gone, oh well. They had one copy of Thor: Ragnorak left.

I picked up a few more, either I didn't see them or they just put them out.

THIS is what I love about this board.

Indeed.

Thanks for the info, ClintFunHome.

"Haunted: The Complete Series" for $1.88 sounds like a good deal.

Be aware that Haunted did receive a Blu-ray release in the past year.

Thanks for all the updates - now what to buy this year? (Sitting here looking at a tall stack of still sealed releases from previous year's BF sales LOL!)

My 2017 BF pile isn't too high - the rest have been incorporated into my collection.

Still haven't watched "Ghost In A Shell" among others.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Yeah my store had its BF titles out.

Not much I wanted. Only took home one, which is what I wanted, "Haunted: The Complete Series" for $1.88. Can take out Big Lots! from my Black Friday interest.

I did see the display at Target already out. Not sure what to make of it. Seem too pricey.

That was so true. I used to direct a lot of folks to Circuit City with my weekly ad listings.

I used to shop there way more than Best Buy.

If they had never gone after me, this site and CAG for releasing the Playstation price drop, they'd still be in business and I'd still be shopping there.

Although DIVX also played a role in their demise..... among other things.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Oh man.

You know, my collection owes a lot to you - your weekly listings.

It was a golden time. So many solid deals and titles.

Anyhow, another part of their demise was ditching their knowledgeable staff for low paid newbies who didn't care. But the final nail was deciding to focus their attention on the stuff that wasn't selling, appliances. Taking the spot light off media which was their bread and butter.

Hey, remember when Anchor Bay had so many special editions, now a memory.

That crown is worn by Kino and Shout Factory.

To All...

We are right on the precipice of 2018's sale.

Would be great to see what you got - post your trophies. We are a community that like to see what the other has.

Re: Black Friday 2018

Just curious John, are you still standard definition, DVD and old school 4:3 TVs?

I only see you post and talk DVDs, never BDs. HDTV's and BD players are so dirt cheap right now.

I'm a DVD fan.

The TV is wide.

I post here since it's the DVD forum.

Not everyone is into BDs.
