Re: The last Blu-ray you bought (Round 3)

About a week ago, went into Walmart and saw Batman and it sequels for $10 a pop. I treated myself to the Batman Digibook for my birthday last year, which is why I'd resisted the Anthology box set. I wasn't feeling particularly well that day, though, so I gave up and decided to try again another time. Naturally, the sequels were all gone by then and have yet to be restocked. Remembering the WB Shop thread, I decided to take a gander over there last Thursday night. Lo and behold they were still $7.50, minus my WB Insider discount, which made them $5.62 each! I was disappointed that they were out of stock on Batman Returns, but with $5.00 shipping I paid $16.96, which is $3.04 less than they'd have been at Walmart anyway. They arrived in today's mail, in perfect shape.

Now to find a good deal on Returns so I can trade-in my Anthology DVD box...

Haven't used a single one of them. I must have hundreds. I bet I could make a few bucks if I gathered them all together and eBayed 'em.

Oh, you save them? Wow. Makes sense, in case you want to resell them, but the storage must stink on that.

Not sure what you mean by that....they're just sitting in the Blu-Ray cases they originally came in, so it's not like they're taking up any additional space.

I've got a few I'm actually looking for. Do you have an online list of your Blu-ray collection anywhere?

Major misread, completely my oversight. Was thinking about the cardboard slipcases.

Night of the Hunter for $18.03.

Almost brings a tear to the eye that this sale is ending. I can't bring myself to buy Criterions without it.

This thing is friggin monstrous. The photos you see online don't give you an accurate sense of scale when it comes to the size of it. I just figured it would be DVD-sized or something, and then it turns out to be a jumbo book. It actually kind of pisses me off since it's way too massive to fit on any of my shelves.
