Thanks for the offer, that's very thoughtful of you. But it's ok. I thought it was one of these big detailed figurines, especially when I heard they ran out so quickly.

Once again, Thank you for your thoughtfulness.

is the bonus disc a ripoff?

it seems like they probably could have put that extra stuff on the original dvd but I guess they want you to pay $22 for a extra 8 minute short with its own dvd case?

Its not bad. Its about 24 minutes long. Since the 2 disc is the same price as the 1 disc at Best Buy this week its worth it in my opinion.

Plus the second disc contains some bonus features not on the first disc.

I thought it was pretty lame that the Blu-ray has all of the bonus features from both discs but was missing the Furious 5 short.

If anyone cares I checked Amazon and the 2 disc edition with the furious five short is now $15.99 in case if you want to buy it there and avoid paying extra for sales tax at best buy.

Well, Paramount is releasing the Secret of the Furious Five as an individual release:

Title: Secrets Of The Furious Five
Starring: N/A (Animation)
Released: 24th March 2009
SRP: Price TBC

Further Details:
Paramount Home Entertainment has announced Secrets Of The Furious Five which features the voices of Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman. The 24 minute adventure was previously only available in a 2-pack with Kung Fu Panda. Extras will include featurettes (Inside the Chinese Zodiac, Animals of Kung Fu Panda, Learn the Panda Dance), a Pandamonium Activity Kit, and more. We've attached the artwork below:

This is a complete rip-off. Releasing a 24 minute featurette as a separate release? This could have been included as an extra on all versions of the DVD and BD without any problem.

Reminiscent of 'Shrek the Halls'...
