I was expecting a big display for this and the Rey but nothing. I don't think Walmart cares about promoting their own exclusive wrestling titles.
Why in God's name did you go to three different WalMarts in one day? I, for one, am hoping to be able to live out the rest of days without ever having to step foot in another WalMart, let alone three in one day.

What is the difference in price between the Rey Mysterio DVD with and without the bonus game DVD. My Wal-Mart told me when I called they only got a 2-pack. Is it cheaper for the Single Pack?

Just got back from Wal-Mart. They had only black, red, blue, and green. I went with green. Pretty good for only $14.95! I was expecting it to be a few dollars more.

Same price for both versions at my store.

Somehow I think Walmart mis-priced this Rey set. $15 for a $35 retail set is way less than they are paying for it. Best Buy is selling it for $20 which is more realistic. It's funny, the Taker 15-0 1 disk dvd was $15 also, at least Rey has 3 disks!

I bought the green cover of the RM DVD with the bonus smackdown disk. I was also surprised by the price.

Has anyone seen a large display at any Walmart's with the Taker & Rey sets? I still can't believe they are not promoting these 2 releases except for the posters at the entrance to the store.

With all that said. The best buy ad shows the yellow/cream color as part of the best buy exclusive ultimate fan edition set.


Can anyone confirm that Best Buy has the Exclusive on the RM DVD Yellow/Cream/Gold COVER?

I made quite a few stops today but held off for now- I do plan on picking up the Rey disc by the end of the week, and the Taker disc within the next 2-3 weeks.

Of the stores I went to (x2 Walmart, FYE) the least stocked color at WM was blue, while FYE the black one was least. No sign of a gold/cream/yellow color. Figure I'll wait to see what's speculated as the 'rarer' cover, then buy that one. 14.95 is an f'n deal for the Rey DVD, got a feeling it wont be that price for long.

And for the record, there is NO PDQ for these 2 WWE DVDs. Sadly enough, they already have the posters up for next weeks release, and took the only piece of advertising down.

At the walmart i went to they only had one spot on the shelf for the rey dvd, which means they could only put out about 7 of them or so. there was mostly red and green. there was one black/gray, i picked that one up because of the neutral color. I would imagine there was more black/gray and blue ones in the back, but they just couldnt fit them out at the moment.

also, if you notice on walmart's site, the smackdown vs raw bonus dvd is listed as being slightly different on both the Undertaker and Rey pictures. Is there any confirmation of there being 2 different versions of this bonus dvd? One pictures shows "game preview" and pictured as "inside the game"....The only one available at the walmart i went to was the "game preview". I am assuming it was just a prototype image used on the other.

Yeah I just went to my local Walmart. They had the Taker DVD 2 pack on the front new release shelf and one spot on the other shelf for the Rey DVD 2pack. They had 6 or 7 Rey DVDs. They only had black and blue colors. For 14.96 I'm definitely going to pick this set up. 3 disks and 30 matches is a great for only 14.96, even though I already have some of the matches on the set on the 619 DVD.

Well, I think It's pretty much confirmed. Both Best Buy's I went to had tons of the fan edition box set and all were gold/yellow/cream color masks w/baby blue eyes.

As for the set. It's really nice. Pretty big, about the size of the anthology releases. I read in the new 500th issue of wwe magazine, That the Cena dvd, now being released on 11/13, will have one as well. With cena stuff of course.

So wait, this "Ultimate Fan Edition" is available exclusively at Best Buy-is it available in the UFE "Gold" Cover for the DVD by itself (for 19.99?)-or is the gold cover only available in the package deal for 39.99 with the shirt, etc.

If I can, I'll pick up the Limited Gold Cover DVD (only), and have them do a price match for 17.99 with Circuit. I'd do the 14.96 pricematch with WalMart, but it has to be advertised prices-and it's not in an ad. Internet pricing is void.
