I haven't heard anybody mention this, but my copy of THX-1138 had a metal ear tag that printed with "THX-1138". Did anyone else receive one of these? And what is it for?

I received one through Amazon.

Haven't seen it attached at Costco or my local Best Buy.

The little message saying it was included was not on the page when I ordered, but when I went back and was contemplating if I wanted to cancel the order or not it was there indicating it was a special free bonus from amazon. Just another trinket to set on my DVD shelves.

I ordered from Amazon, but mine didn't seem to have one. Where was it in the package?

The 2 disc "LE" packaging looks rather typcial, in that there is a cellophane wrapper around the set; however, the small ear tag is placed in its own small plastic bag, which lies right on the front of the box, directly underneath the cellophane wrapping.

In other words, it's pretty easy to find out if the packaging included it or not.

I got mine from Amazon with an ear tag too. I wondered if it was just an Amazon thing. I hadn't heard anyone else mention it.
Anyway, here's a pic of the tag modeled by my lovely wife.

Got one with mine. Looks perty on my little ear.

Works with a magnet. Little round magnet goes on the back of your ear lobe.

You guys should eBay it. I'm sure there are a lot of die-hard fans who want their hands on this.

I got mine too.

It was inside the shrinkwrap. Easy to spot.

A pleasant surprise.

She needs to shave her head for the full effect.

Looks like it might be an Amazon exclusive, as mine came with it from them as well.

Nice little unexpected surprise, I guess. Like the other guy said, just another thing to put on the shelf.
