You're right, I'll change the title to reflect the dead status of this.

I don't remember if it had The Hobbit movie money part, but the 3-BD Theatrical Trilogy was in the $9 cardboard display next to the Gremlins/Gremlins2/Goonies BD Triple pack I bought last weekend.

There's a small chance it might still be available B&M, but it's probably only worth checking if you're already in the store for something else.

Can the Hobbit movie money be used for any movie like Movie Cash?

Are you referring to the DVD extended editions, or is there a new Bluray version without green tint?

Just got mine.

The good - the price. You can't beat $3.33/each, even if they are the theatrical versions. Comes with lenticular slipcover, which was unexpected.

The bad - one of my slipcovers was badly damaged in shipping. The other, thankfully, is okay.

The ugly - the movie cash is the "up to $5 off" type. Lame. I was hoping it was a voucher for a free ticket.

/edit don't get all up in arms just yet about the amount of movie cash, I only saw it briefly when checking the shipment, but I'm 99% sure it said up to $5 off. I feel like this is false advertising.

Got my shipping confirmation for this, too, should be here Wednesday. And I was hoping the movie cash would be a free ticket sort of deal (the listing does say "$10 Hobbit Cash" which covers at least a matinee showing here in CA Bay Area), but only $5 off is disappointing.

Sucks this comes with only $5, everything I found at time of post said $10. Still $13 for 3 movies and $5 off isn't bad at all.

Hrm... Just got mine, and haven't been following the recent updates in this thread, so the $5 off instead of $10 off thing came as an unpleasant surprise. Debating returning it now because I already have the extended edition box and don't really feel the need to own the theatrical edition. Anyone know if there are any special features on this set that aren't on the extended version?

I'm pretty sure the Walmart.com page actually said it was $10, didn't it? Of course that'll be hard to prove unless anyone took a screen capture, and I don't know what they'd do about it anyway...

I just got mine and a bunch of the inside plastic had shattered. The center piece that holds the discs in place and all around the outside edge. So, I was VERY disappointed. First $5 less HMM and then it's broken. I'll be taking it back. It was sealed so I assume FedEx busted it up...

I am returning 2 back to the store and keeping three, two for friends. They gave me a $9 ($3 each) refund on the 3 I am keeping and a full refund on the 2 I am returning. May be worth calling them to get a partial refund.

One thing that I'm wondering with returns, checked their return policy on the website and didn't see and answer... Will they refund the shipping fee? If not, I'm not sure it's even worth the effort of going to the store, since it's a little out of my way to do so...

I tried to take it in to my store and swap it out for a new copy but they didn't even have it in stock. But the girl at the counter said they would be getting some in on saturday.

Yeah, that's not the same version. Those are just the movies without any of the special features dvds. Not a huge issue since most of us already have those same special features dvds with, surprise surprise, our dvd copies.

Here is what happened with me when I called. They said to return in store, the Order has something called "Easy Returns Receipt". Click on that and bring it with the items to the store.

On the bottom of that Easy Returns Receipt this is listed "*In some cases, shipping costs may not be refundable."

I asked them on the phone if I would get the shipping back because I am returning them due to damage, not because I did not want them. They told me the store should do that because it is a valid reason for the return, but if the store does decide not to, just call Wal-Mart and they will issue the shipping refund themselves.

Finally got my set today. Love the packaging, and how small it is. The Hoibbit movie money sticker was a bitch to come off though and I almost destroy the code peeling it off, but I was able to get it off and clean up the residue so I'm happy now

tip: If you ever have sticky residue on something like this one thing you can due is get a pece of tape and keep applying it and lifting it off the residue. The residue will stick to the tape and it'll eventually all come off. A nice alternative if you don't have goo gone, or other stuff to apply to it.

Just received mine. The first outer box/slip (with the hobbit money sticker) is kind of beat up on one side because Walmart shipped mine in a loose package with no padding. Can I just take my receipt and packing slip with the boxed set to a local Walmart and get it exchanged for another boxed set?

I took the hobbit sticker off before I noticed the damage but since B&M Walmarts are sold out of the hobbit stickered ones anyway, can I just exchange it for the boxed set without the sticker since they are identical anyway?
(I didn't open the packaging or anything so everything is still sealed)
