The Breed so-so Wes Craven produced B-movie about killer dogs.
Immortal was shot like "300", Mostly digitital. Not the greatest film ever, but ok.

All right a third thread...

Hellsing Ultimate Series Vol. 4 (2 variations TBD) ...release date 9/16/08???
FYI, the release date for this release is 9/23/08. The LE will include an artbook similar to Vol.2. Select retailers will carry the LE without the artbook including TWEC stores.

Hmm, this is VERY interesting. I went to my usually store at lunch time and they only had five (5) copies.

1/4 of their usually release day SteelBook inventory. This could be bad for a lot of people.

YMMV.

I took all of the numbers that have been posted, except from the guy with multiple accounts, and the average number of copies per store is seven (7).

I wonder if they lowered the production run to lower the amount of inventory sitting at the stores and gathering dust?

I noticed that Future Shop removed a large number of SteelBook titles from their online store.

Unfortunately I am without a car this week (mine is in the shop, as someone busted my window and took a brand-new laptop out of my trunk, but I digress) so I couldn't visit my local Best Buy to pick one up. Called a relative to pick one up at another store, but they said they only got three in and were all out. Luckily, I was able to have someone pick one up for me. This seems to be VERY hard to find, unlike most other Best Buy Exclusives I've seen that are at least available a few days later on.

I didn't do an exact count but there were about seven or eight at my Best Buy.

A number had a dent in the exact same spot, so a case must've gotten banged up during shipping. Make sure to look over yours before buying.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season 1

I didn't see any on the new release shelf, and an associate happened to walk up and ask if I was finding everything. I told him I was looking for the steelbook, so he checked on the computer and found no listing and said it must be an exclusive for another store. I stated it is a BB exclusive asked where else this title might be located. He walked me to the TV shows section and found one. On my way to the register, I saw about 8 more on a stand-alone display with other new releases. Sometimes you have to really look around and cannot always take an employee's word for the availability.

My Bestbuy in WI, had about twenty of the Terminator Steelbook, 10 in a front display along with some new releases, Street Kings and Prom Night. They had another 10 on the New Release wall.

For some odd reason Bestbuy is not carrying the Immortal steelbook. I went to pick up the Proposition , the "guys with the blue shirt" told me they had 4 copies in the store for $12.99, but they couldn't find any of them. So I went to Target, they had 2 copies of both Proposition and Immortal for $9.99 each.

With all th hype about the Sarah Connor Chronicles being "RARE","LIMITED" & "SOLDOUT"

The said "steelbook" exclusive was manufactured roughly around 50,000 in North America alone.

so 50 states in America that comes out to about 1,000 copies per state...

explains why some states/stores have more then others.... so this will be rare and limited then...

Ahem, xage said North America, which means Canada probably took about 10%-15% or 5,000-7500 copies.

xage, how did you arrive at 50,000?

w0ot i just pre-ordered the Iron Man Blu-Ray steelbook from futureshop! And i got the 10% discount which is pretty nice. I guess the 10% off will pay for the 1.99 shipping charges.

Ahh, i remember in the old days there was free shipping on stuff you bought from futureshop.ca

You were right. I hit the Best Buy on Pico Blvd and they had 5 left. 2 of 'em were floaters so I grabbed the quietest one and left.

Whew!

I stopped ordering any SteelBooks online with Future Shop. They use shi**y bubble mailers and every order would arrived damaged. I though that I could save a trip to the store and just have it mailed to me for an extra $1.99. I ended up returning almost every order back to the store and rebuying another store copy.

This way, it gives me an opportunity to inspect the case for any damage. I f***en hate getting damaged SteelBooks in the mail. (end or rant)

i do have to say the "Terminator: Sarah Connor..." is one of the nicer SteelBooks. the front art is really done well and i love the spine especially with the red Season 1 on top.
