Sure hardcore collectors picked them up, but the titles were so 'meh' that they didn't fly off the shelf.
blazenumb - again, there was the first round of the two Batman films with the aforementioned titles with movie cash, then I believe they put even more out last month, without the movie cash (even a different sku for both) to generate hype for DKR and pump them out at $9.99 all day long.
My comments are generally towards the big blockbuster Tuesday BB Exclusive SB releases, Amazing Spiderman, Men In Black 3 are gone and haven't been out for a month (hell MiB 3 just last week). I remember the very first was Hurt Locker, went to 3 stores to find one and now goes for $100 on eBay. Then came Salt which was off the shelf by the days end. Since then, its been stuff like Safe House, Underworld Awakening, a few others that were all gone by Tuesday the next week, I guarantee it. This DKR is blowing up so fast, I really don't think the copies will last, especially since its at a nice price point and pretty sweet cover..
Well, I suppose you are def right on a few points. I might go back later today and just pick up a SB for safe keeping until my WBShop exclusive gets here since I KNOW it's just the combo Blu with the exclusive figures. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep that one or sell it, since it only had 1,000. I have the other 2 Batmans on SB, so might as well get it for this one too...just in case I want to sell it one day, they'll be in a SB set.
