Beatles Get Back--What's Up With this Blu ray Set?

Amazon was selling this set for an outrageous $100 a few days ago and one can get it at Best Buy for like $35. There are other links that say it is unavailable at all. Are there multiple editions of the Blu ray of this with some more valuable than others? Is this a limited edition release? What's going on with this thing?

I know it had been delayed for a while until last week due to a recall in February. And the Amazon listing is from 3rd party sellers, so perhaps Amazon doesn't have it yet for some reason?

Did some get out into the wild from that February date maybe?

I got a copy from Best Buy like 10 days ago. It's a pretty nice set, albeit bare-bones.

Amazon is having real stocking issues on a variety of newer Blu-rays. You mostly notice it with releases done outside the major Hollywood studios. Anime, music, documentaries - Amazon just doesn't bother stocking enough inventory for them. It can take weeks/months for Amazon themselves to finally carry them.

I don't think Amazon cares that much they aren't stocking everything anymore.

Yeah, I pre-ordered Killer’s Kiss from Amazon. Release date of June 28th; current estimated delivery date of September 7th.

When I search for the UPC code — 786936894592 — it looks like the same edition on both sites.

Amazon
Best Buy
Target

Peter Jackson is probably going to do another DNR pass on it.
