Why Amazon? Just go down to Wal-Mart, where I got mine yesterday. Same price.

Anyone find the Thor, Captain America trailers yet? They’re supposedly an easter egg on the two disc set.

There is no two disc set.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Neither. Do you have a link to this mysterious 2-disc set or do you want to pull a mod-edit and remove your post before someone else sees it?

Well...

There's a single disc Blu-ray
There's a 3-disc version that includes 2 Blu rays + the DVD/Digital copy disc
There's also a 2-disc DVD release

I can't remember if there is also a single disc DVD release or not... there may not be.

The real point being that you only get the bonus features if you buy the version that comes with the 2nd bonus disc... and this thread didn't seem to specify Blu-ray or DVD.

That's why I wondered if you didn't know about the 2-disc version on DVD... OR if you were just being funny in some way that I wasn't getting.

Perhaps, but the previous 6 posts (including the linked review) were all related to the Blu Ray. Besides, I didn't know people still purchased standard DVD's.

I just found out, Thor and Captain America footage will be added via BD-LIVE at a later date. The footage is NOT actually on the discs.

Now I know you're being funny, because DVDs of blockbuster movies still sell very high. I'm Blu-ray myself, but clearly a lot of people still aren't OR opt to pay less for the usually cheaper DVD copy.

I saw mention of that on one of the Blu-ray forums... and that disappoints me to hear. My Blu-ray player isn't BD-Live compatible, so I'll miss out on that.

Sad to say, but Ive never even seen a blu-ray, let alone been interested in buying one. I still rent DVD's or watch the HD movies on Directv. Maybe when the price comes down to match DVD's, I might be interested.

Just depends on how much you look for deals. I have about 100 Blu Rays and I'm averaging less than $15 per (DVD Profiler tells me my current average is $14.12).

In fact, I bought Iron Man 2 from WalMart for $15.

Now, since I averaged just under $10 each for my 700 DVD's, it is a bit more, but it's far from expensive.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Yeah, there are deals to be had if you are lucky OR willing to wait.

I got in on the Wal-Mart deal as well... and I keep an eye out for sales and coupons... and then some movies I'm willing to wait a while for the inevitable price drop.

If you are patient, you can find some pretty good deals on Blu rays.

I usually get discs from Amazon because I can come home on release day and it's there waiting for me. And I don't have to pay tax, or at least delay paying it until April.

Target has the 3-disc BD set in an exclusive metal case with a 3D cover, priced especially for the fanboy.

The first movie in Target's exclusive helmet case is now a more reasonable $15.
