Is this really necessary? Not the thread, but the event? It's just another movie and it's not heading into a holiday or anything. I guess the stores are hoping Batman can save their fourth quarter.

I guess if you're really going all out for this movie and plan on picking up the batpod edition and both statuettes and all the other stuff, you can go the night before and try to secure it instead of trying to make it on your lunch break only to find that someone came in at opening and bought them all.

Same here...

Any Best Buy Insiders mind telling us what makes the "expanded midnight event" so special?

Last time I went to a "expanded" midnight launch at Best Buy was for GTA IV, and the Best Buy hogged all the goodies that were supposed to be given away... In the end I just got a whole lot of GTA IV stickers, but no T-Shirts or Music Download cards, which were given out at the other "Expanded" launches.

$15 dollars more than the standard blu-ray... is there anything else in there, like a bonus dvd or anything?? It's kinda cool but I don't know if I would pay $15 for the mask.

Is this the first movie to ever get a midnight sale? I remember getting the Lord of the Rings movies at midnight but that was at Meijer, who are open 24 hours anyway.

Well if I remembered correctly they gave out free pizza, chips, drinks, had a radio station come out and play some music, had some sort of set up to play Battlefront 1. They would even ask if anyone wanted to come in and play for a bit. I forgot the other prizes, but one of them was one of those expensive light up light sabers (not the cheap kind).

While everyone was shopping around, a bunch of people got to the back of the store and saw ESB on a big screen.

I personally picked up the movies, battlefront 1 for the pc and was out the door in about an hour.

This is gonna turn into an Ironman/Batman fight huh?

Ironman wins for cool, great special effects.

However Batman wins for best story and acting.

Does the regular Blu-Ray Disc at Best Buy include the digital copy as well like the Amazon.com version?

I work at Best Buy and I believe the only "real" giveaway were doing is a free tshirt for the first 25 people in line, but I am not sure if there are other smaller giveaways that I just haven't seen yet.

Meh. My stores opening at midnight, but not doing one of the special events. I can't imagine the standard blu ray selling out so I'll just wait and pick it up Tuesday morning or evening since I'm not interested in the SE or any of the toys.

I hope this is true. They always have vague pre-release descriptions of the items. I haven't been able to find another basic blu ray version, so I assume it is true.

Has anyone out there received their second confirmation e-mail from Best Buy for in-store pick-up? I placed my order for the BD masks and Batpod editions on Thursday and did not receive one yet. They still have time considering it comes out on Tuesday but I want to see that e-mail for reassurance in the worst way. :pray:
