So is this the same Looney Toons collection on Amazon? The description on best buy looks like it's missing quite a few of the episodes and features from amazon's description. Plus amazon has two different versions so I don't know what to think of this.

Someone please help, so I can order this because I want to. >_>

probably ebay resellers. i noticed that everyone on slickdeals, etc knew about this ahead of time. i never saw much collector's value in these editions though. warner bros. seems insistent on just throwing together random blu-ray sets instead of doing comprehensive retrospectives. don't get me wrong. there was a lot bang for your buck for $20 but it is not going to be worth anything down the line if you were picking it up for collector's purposes.

There's two Blu ray versions..... the video content is the same. So I'm assuming BBY website isn't listing all the details. The other version is the Collector's Edition which includes; a tin box, numbered authenticity, a shot glass & some type of photo of the characters. As far as the video content is concerned it's the same. With that being said, my order is already placed. I really wanted the CE but for this price I won't pass it up! :bouncy:

Got damn, that :censored: went quick. Glad I got my order in :)

For some reason it was never available for in store in the 1st place. Earlier today it didn't allow that option when it was at retail. Although your local store may have it. I had my friend who works at BBY to check for me and a few *3* stores had it in stock. Very limited tho. Most only had 1 and there was one store with 2.

I don't think they had too many to begin with. Store pick up wasn't an option when I placed my order.

I did the trick to check the stock for Chesapeake, VA, Fort Collins, CO and Lincoln NE and everything says unavailable. Although like some have said it may be in stock just below 3.

This went entirely too fast. I can understand that some ebay flippers probably bought this but it's not like it's a hard to get item and something that is in high demand. They'll make a quick $10-$15 off this as it's only $45 on Amazon and if they ordered 10 or more, then they might wait months or more to sell all of them. It was already sold out within a minute of being posted. It reminds me of those Lightning deals on Amazon during Black Friday.

Fucking cunt. I missed it by only a couple minutes. I already had an employee look up the sku in store and none of the stores (like 20 stores listed) had a single copy. Should I go and try to get them to pricematch the special limited edition? I know my stores have a couple of those. They just don't have any of the regular edition.

I just called best buy to try to place an order for looney tunes over the phone. She shut me down really quick. It sounded like she's already had calls from people asking the same question as me.

Okay, I know it says "Sold Out Online," but bestbuy.com just let me add the Looney Tunes Blu-ray to my cart and check out. It's back in stock for now (around 7am EST). I was up at 1:30am EST and just barely missed it before. Hopefully it ships. I'm envisioning a "best buy black friday fiasco" where my order get's cancelled, but I hope I'm wrong.

I used a $5 reward zone certificate from trading in games, so it ended up costing me only $14.99+tax. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to this deal.

Wow, it just sold out again. Jesus effing Christmas. My order went through. I was contemplating buying a second copy for my little cousin. I guess the decision just got easier now that it's not available again.

I asked the Best Buy customer service representative on the phone last night if she thought it might come back in stock at all today. She said something along the lines of "No. I've never seen a sold out Deal of the Day come back in stock."

I just got one as well and checked out, but it says sold out now. Fingers crossed!


Congrats. I'm going to sleep with all of my fingers crossed. Hopefully our orders go through. At least on Black Friday when several of my orders got cancelled, Best Buy gave gift certificates of the purchase price on top of the refund.

Honestly looney tunes and popeye are the only retro cartoons that I really like. There are other classics, but those two stand out the most.

I really want to be excited about that, but the only reason that I bought this set was because it was $20. I already have the Golden Collections, I just wanted to see the quality difference on the blu ray set. I'm going to be a casual buyer of the blu rays at best.

And wow, I knew it was going to sell out fast, but I didn't think it was going to be 1-hour fast. I'm glad I stayed up to order one last night.
