Just Picked up Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I went into the Orange County marketplace today. I actually went there looking for the first year of CSI, but was shocked when I saw Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for sale!! Not only was it on sale, it cost me only $15 with no tax included. Any amazing deal. The box is different than the prior 2, it features a keepcase, and not a digipack. The overall picture quality is very good and the audio is outstanding. I couldn't believe I got this thing nearly a month early. WHOHOO!!!!!!!

If you have any questions about the set I'll try and answer them. I will also try and go to my friends house and scan some picturtes in to show you.

I can't imagine why they would change the format from digipack to keepcase, so if it has a decent picture and sound, it's probably a halfway decent bootleg. Haven't seen the previously-mentioned pics yet, but it sounds like someone got ahold of the artwork for the actual upcoming release and made themselves their own early release.

The picture of the DVD on Amazon.com looks like a keepcase...

All the official artwork I've seen for this indicates a keepcase, most likely one of the slim doubles like for the Star Wars prequels. WB has been putting a lot of stuff in keepcases lately, they appear to have turned over a new leaf.


Also, are there any deleted scenes?

If these companies are going to keep changing cases in mid-release (ala Harry Potter or Alias), I wish companies would provide a mail-in offer to get cases so the earlier releases would match the later ones. Yes, I'm anal about my cases and proud of it.

I'm the same way. I'm going to be disappointed if they change this mid-series.

This is the one downside to WB ditching the snapper cases. They've apparently decided to abandon the digipack for their 2-disc sets which is a shame cuz I thought they really suited their classic film releases. And of course Prisoner of Azkaban won't exactly match the first two Harry Potter flicks on the shelf.

You're going to be waiting a lot longer than a couple of years. The fourth movie comes out next year, so at the rate they've been going it'll be 2008-2011 before they're finished.

Funny thing to, I didn't know they had an orange county in Oregon.

Besides that, are you even sure it's not a bootleg? I mean it is the Orange County Market place. A glorified flea market.

Pics?

Not completely out of the question a month in advance though. Most likely if it's real than it's an item that "fell out of a truck" if you know what I mean. Does it have the Promo stamp in the barcode?

Oh it's a Booty for sure. That's why it isn't in the form of a digipak.

If this is your typical BS thread, dalvin, not smart to post it in the main forum since they will disect you more then I do. anyhow this thing was pretty funny:

Not only was it on sale, it cost me only $15 with no tax included.
It's a market place/flea market/swap meet. Of course they aren't going to charge tax. I don't think I ever seen a successful seller at these places that does charge taxes. It's all under the table. And considering this is most likely a hot item, who would want to keep track of it?

So... make with the pictures already. Tell us some of the bonus features.. make with the info. It's usually considered a bragging thread if you don't offer any info on what the product has. You are currently not doing a good job at showing what the dvd has to offer.

Doesn't look like the DVD featured at Amazon.com, DVDempire.com or DDD.

It's a boot. As is the Potter DVD.

I assumed it was the Orange county marketplace which is on the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa - CA.... NOT in Oregon where he claims to have moved up to.

Which is pretty much just a flea market/swap meet/ bootleg breeding ground.

Hey Dalvin, did you check out any of the deleted scenes? I really hope they'll flesh out the story a bit more, because as a fan of the Harry Potter movies (but have never read a Potter book), I was pretty confused during a decent portion of Azkaban.

And that elf looks odd. Nothing like the revised cover:




But your pictures posted above pretty much comfirms it's real. so what to do. Any pictures of potter?

Atleast there is some merit to the claim that it's not a digipack for Potter:



but it being posted by dalvin and bought at a flea market just sits odd with me.

That Elf is real. Review copies (final product) went out last week, and that's what it looks like.

I don't see any reason to assume that the films in questions are bootlegs. People get early releases all the time. Unless we're talking about review copies here
