Is this the same one offered at Best Buy too? That one retails for $119! Very tempting, but a lot of money.

Ive only seen the regular 2 disc one for 25 bucks. I was hoping the one with the bust was only like 50-60 bucks but looks like thats not happening lol (I thought the bust was smaller tho)

I got this too. Best Buy and Target have it for $119, or at least they did. I was going to get it through Amazon but they cancelled it for some reason. I had some Best Buy certificates to use up so I got it. Our Best Buy only got two in.

I am just glad they didn't do this box set in blu ray. I would have bought it then.

I figure most 1:2 scale busts run $200 to $250 from Sideshow & DC Direct . . . and we really , really love this movie . . .

A few have already sold above retail on ebay but that will calm down when they are released full blast. It will be interesting to see if the price goes up once it sells out though . . . it is really nice . . .

I've ordered from Amazon too (For $119).Thay didn't cancel my order just changed shipping date.For those that have the bust, what are the sound bits from the movie that the bust plays? It's going to be a couple of weeks before it arrives and I haven't found anything info about the sound bits

Amazon isn't selling it anymore, only their secondary sellers are. I looked it up last weekend and it said that it had been cancelled. Now when I looked, it's only being sold by Amazon sellers, not through Amazon themselves. Hopefully you'll get your's. Maybe Amazon themselves sold out with per-orders.

Saw it at B&N, but it was like $169.99 I think. I didn't realize it came with the Sanity Claws disguise. Good thing it's not offered in blu-ray - I might have to get it.

Seeing how the original DVD release is no where to be found nowadays, I'm definitely going to grab this one. Probably not the boxed set with the bust, but definitely the two-disc edition.

I'm surprised they don't offer it in blu-ray!

Borders has it for $129.

I had ordered it August 2nd so they might have found some more remaining to fullfill all the preorders.I got a shipping email (yesterday) but untill it gets here it's going to take some time. Any info on the sound bits?

Technically wouldn't 1:2 scale be the size of NECA's figures? I mean the actual figures used on the film weren't life size!

I really like the movie, but not enough to spring for the bust. I will certainly be picking up the two disk edition, though.

I'm a sucker for a collector's edition DVD that has bonuses or busts or toys or anything with it.

^Typically, I am too. I have the Iron Man and Indiana Jones gift sets from Best Buy preordered. But I can't drop $120 on a single movie. And yes, I know that includes the price of the bust, but I'm nowhere near a big enough fan that I feel I need it.

^^ Same here. I will hand over a couple extra bucks if the dvd comes with a cool gift but this was just a bit too expensive.
