Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season - December 12th, 2017



That artwork looks to be a fan mockup, but other retailers are confirming the release date. No specs yet.

Best Buy will have a sigil edition, but no more details for that are available quite yet. Steelbook too. There's a $79.99 edition with no further details, so...very curious what that may be.

I'm glad they're not waiting 11 months for the BD release like the first five years.

Re: Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season - December 12th, 2017

Fifth Season I went with Target and a $5 gift card. Last season I didn't get the $5, so looking at the price, I went to Amazon UK and got the UK version, which included all of the US "exclusives" on one disc, for approximately the same price. I'm wondering if the UK version will again come with an extra disc with all the extras that are parceled out to different US stores.

So last year Best Buy didn't do the Sigil packaging and now they're doing it again - that is fucking bullshit - should come with a bonus sigil slipcover that fits the Season 6 set.

Not only did they do an exclusive Sigil cover for Season Six, it's still available and on sale :

I read some speculation that Best Buy didn't release a season six sigil exclusive on the same day as the standard release because HBO rushed it out early and BB didn't have time to prepare.

Yeah that season six design was released later. Launch day was the same cover ever one else got.

Sadly the gift card offer at Target seems to be gone.

They do for this season and the previous season. They hold the exclusive for a few months, then it goes wide to other retailers.

That's only for the US though right? I seem to remember getting the season 6 steelbook from the UK the same time it was released in the US.

I would be but I'm up in Canada who didn't get this recent re-release, nearly 10 months after the initial release to include the slip they should have had in the first place.

It's one thing to not do a Sigil cover after doing it for five seasons. But BB releasing one for S6 almost a year after release date was ridiculous.

As for the steelbooks with the Atmos track, I'll rebuy the series when a box set is eventually released.

Amazon has a new set up for $40. Might be an exclusive? Comes with an animated movie "Conquest & Rebellion - An Animated History of the Seven Kingdoms"

Re: Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season - December 12th, 2017

you know fuck it. i said i would only get the digital code for S7 this time around, which would have been a lot cheaper, because these sets are just taking up too much room for me. getting annoying since i would rather see this more easily digitally, and have never even viewed the blus of S1-6. the extras do sound interesting and i would like to understand and look deeper into series creation, etc. but that animated feature sounds real good and i have the physical copies of all others, so what the hell. i do still have room on my GoT shelf...

Thanks, I still had the original in my cart and wondered why the price hadn't significantly dropped.

As far as I can tell, that's included with the standard release, even though Amazon has two separate entries with only one showcasing the bonus disc. Best Buy lists Conquest and Rebellion as well (although they seemingly incorrectly list it as a bonus DVD rather than a BD).
