Three Stooges Lunchbox collection - has anyone seen this at a B&M?

I realize that the discs included is just public domain fare (and I'll assume a piss poor transfer) however what really interests me in this set is the lunchbox itself.

These aren't carried retail in Canada - has anyone seen this in a B&M store and could they tell me if the "DVD included" sticker is actually a sticker that peels off or if they've ruined the collectability of this by actually making it part of the box?

Thanks for any info.

Saw it at my local Best Buy 3 days ago. The Best Buy location is in Waldorf MD. Don't know anything about the sticker. I will try to remember to look next time I am in the store.

I don't know about this. I would stick to the official Sony releases. The 4 releases so far have been excellent quality.

The anniversary label is a sticker and it does peel off. If you flip the box over, the photos are the exact same. Also, the front and back photo, as well as "The Three Stooges" branding are embossed.

This might be the same one at DD for $13.50 (-25%, -4% live cashback = $9.59).

The UPC for the item (096009557294) brings up the same product on DDD so I'm betting it's the same (but perhaps with less crap inside the box) - I just used the Amazon link and pic since it seemed to be the best floating around the web.

The DDD deal is good but I ended up ordering it from borders.com (where I first got the UPC # from) since they've got a 30% off coupon and I don't think that live discount works for Canada.

Since a few more people are picking up this item I thought there might be some interest for this one as well.

I have this set
and, although the discs are trash, they actually include a decent enough flip book as well as one of those "fan" type of photo collections. The box aslo is embossed all over and the faces of the stooges are puffed out even more so and it plays a series of stooge quotes when a button on top is pressed.
