Also
Egg paper weight can net you about $35-$50 good investment IMO.

This looks to be an error so act fast if you want. It shows as $69.99 in their ad online.

I'm on the fence; I have the first season already (BB Stark Edition). Had the made a CE a long time ago when the first season came out on blu-ray I would have bought it but I don't think this is worth double dipping unless you really want the egg as it sells for $44.xx at the HBO shop.

I also believe this set has been edited to remove the G. W. Bush scene

I bought it, even if I can only sell the egg for twenty that would still be eggcellent

Eugh, that is so stupid. If you watch the scene (it's on YouTube, etc.) there is no way you can tell it's a George W. Bush head. Even if it was, so what? :roll:

Another difference between this set and the old one is it comes with DVD versions and an Ultraviolet copy redeemable on VUDU in 1080P (HDX).

I just got back $35 in reward zone certificates after returning something yesterday, this is the perfect way to use it. Had the dvd version with the special edition slip cover, but I'll probably just give it to a friend now.

EDIT: got it to go through.

Went ahead and bit and this deal. Already have the Stark blu-ray, figure I'll store it in the collector's box as an uuber collector's edition and sell the copy inside.

Hate store pickup...stood in line longer than it would have taken me to grab it off the shelf and check out. But at least I know I was getting one.

Of note for anyone on the fence for the R1 version, the DVDs are double sided and are in a thin cardboard holder as a "case". The Blu Ray case is the same one from the original release, but this time the outer case cover is a little bigger as it also houses the thin DVD case, so the old Stark/Targaryen slip covers will not fit over it.

Got mine. Still had the $84.99 sticker on it. Ouch, that was the original price? For a bonus paperweight?

I almost wonder if Worst Buy just hates having these big CEs hanging around. After the remodel a few months ago, my local store's DVD/BD section is way, way smaller than it used to be. There's just not room for these big boxes.

It is $39.99 in store just got back from store less than an hour ago. Also those of you who use digital copy codes, will the code provided work for both I-tunes and UV separately or can I only use it for one or the other. I want UV for my PS3 and i-tunes for my ipod, wanted to see if I could use it twice,as in once on itunes and once for UV.

ALSO NOTE the dvd copies are double sided and are in a sleepsleeve cover

Somebody has a set on eBay that ends in less than a day going for $10 brand new.

And Amazon's trade-in for this is a whopping 10 cents.

It's an hour into a one-day listing. I'm pretty sure it will sell for more than that.

I'm tempted, but I still have my George Bush edition sitting on my shelf. Don't think I can justify the purchase.
