Adv. of Ford Fairlane & 44 Minutes???

I've been looking for these since they came out a couple of weeks ago. Nobody seems to have had them in stock ever. Has anyone else encountered this problem or is it just my area?

I found Ford Fairlane in the new and improved $5.50 bin at Wal-Mart yesterday, but I could only find one copy in the bin, and it turned out to be a floater. As a matter of fact, many people reported finding it in November at Wal-Mart in the $5.88 bin weeks before the street date.

I ended up picking it up at Fry's for $6.99.

I tried looking for Ford everywhere. I finially gave up and bought it new on eBay. I paid a bit more ($13 with shipping) but at least I'm getting it soon.

That's weird Scotty. I had checked DDD, Amazon and I think Buy.com all on the same day, and they all said 'out of stock' which is why I bit the bullet and went on eBay. Oh well, it's on it's way, which is all I care about.

Did anyone else find it a little odd that you could find this in WalMart weeks before it was released (re-released)? I faithfully showed up at Best Buy like many others on the day it was supposed to be there, and it wasn't... ended up ordering from DDD. The case has a 2003 copyright date near the Fox logo, and it's one of the newer keep cases that (at least) Fox has been issuing lately (LXG has the same kind of case, except in silver/grey). Hmm.

Well, it's still among the missing to me. At every and any store, and a lot of the online stores are backordered. (Ford only, I got 44 Mins.)

Visited the States last week and pulled in to Wall Mart, merchandising nightmare if I've ever seen one--when's this company going to self-implode?, anny-whoo, found the $5.50 bin and right there on top was a copy of Ford waiting for me. Was really glad I didn't have to do any digging in that mass of DVDs.
