My store had nothing but $3 dvds :(

Anyone know when stores are likely to get these shipments and put them out, if not on the 12th?

Damn! I bought the Roots 30th anniversary set and when I opened it up disc 1 was missing! This should be fun going back to exchange. =(

Entirely YMMV. Some stores are saving it for the 12th, others have put them out already. So far, 4 out of 5 stores I've checked have these DVDs out.

Dukes S6, Nip Tuck season 4 (DVD), Animaniacs set 2, West wing s2?

I can pick them up for anyone that wants them. I am looking for Thundercats, Wonder Woman and any comic book related sets (super friends,JLA, etc).


I found Wonder Woman S2 and other Sets out my way. How many Big Lots up north have you been to?

If you think you can hide the DVD sets in the store, there is 20% coupon for friends & family on July 19

All they had at my local BL was Dukes of Hazzard seasons 4 & 5, and ER season 2. That's it. I already own Animaniacs, but was going to pick some up as gifts. I also want to find Pinky & The Brain. I have two more BL's to try this weekend...

Half the Big Lots I went to had displays set up for the boxsets- not really massive displays, but had a defined area with everything in a single location. The other stores looked like employees merely threw the boxsets in randomly with other DVDs and games, which made them hell to find. One store actually had both, which made things even more confusing...

So if you're having trouble finding the boxsets, carefully look around before leaving!

My local BL had everything up front because its a high shoplifting area, and all I could find was Pinky and the Brain Vol 2 and Animaniacs Vol 2 so I bought them, but no Vol 1s for either. I'll probably check another BL soon for those.

My BL had put out a new case today - there were no Super Bowl sets yesterday, but today I picked up XI-XX and XXXI-XL... There were pinky and the brain V1 and V2, superheores V2 and a whole butt load of Nip/Tuck S4 and Smallville S7 BR sets.

I ended up picking up the 2 SB sets (I'll try to find the others tomorrow or Sunday), Scooby Doo S3 and the New Scooby Movies, NFL HOF and NFL Inside the Vault the 60's and 70's. Pretty nice sale. I could definitely see where the stock was gone even from the previous day, so who knows what they had at the beginning if I had seen the thread earlier.

I have one like that too. I've never seen a dvd at that store so I guess they don't get them or they get stolen really quick.

Yeah, Smallville S7 BR for $6. The only things I saw over $6 were some anime sets that had extras on pack(action figures, tins, etc.)

Saw Joey, Dukes S5, and The OC S2 at my local Big Lots today. Spoke to a manager and was told they were expecting more DVD sets to arrive early next week to support the Sunday ad and that he expects them to go quickly because there have been several people in the store looking and more calling the store. Sounds like word of this deal is all over the internet. Hopefully I actually found something I want next week.

Don`t feel too bad, the people who are greedy and tried to flip them, wont get much profit as these are now flooded on Ebay and Amazon marketplace, karma has bit them on the ass, they might get 1 dollar at profit best.:)


I remember when people bought the Yu-Gi-Oh Season 1 Tins for 10.00 and flipped them immediately for 15-20 because ebay was flooded with them. Now they sell for 150.00.

Karma only bites the people in the ass that are foolish enough to not have enough disposable income to buy stuff and hold onto it for a while...like Christmas...when ebay won't be flooded and Big Lots will be sold out. ;)

I have a hard time seeing anyone getting a lot for Wonder Woman, a random season of Smallville, or most of the other stuff they have. Anime in a tin is a different story than something that just didn't sell well, and probably won't ever sell well. If any of the hoarders out there make some money, good for you, but I for one wanted some cheap dvd's so I could watch them.

went to see if my local store had these in yet since they didnt a week ago. low and behold they did.

No Pinky and the Brain sets though, and only Volume 2 of Animaniacs.

Picked up:

Animaniacs Volume 2
The Best of Scooby Doo Movies
Joey Season 1
Nightmares and Dreamscapes
The History of Rock N Roll (looked interesting)

They didnt have any Smallville sets or any HBO sets whatsoever as well. Kind of a crappy selection. May check out one thats further away later next week. Hopefully i can find the Pinky and the Brain sets.

The History Of Rock & Roll set is definitely worth picking up for $6. It's the same one that VH1 Classic plays every now and then - a lot of great footage and interviews on there.

I have a hard time seeing anyone getting a lot for Wonder Woman


Wonder Woman: The Complete Series (all 3 season sets together for $6) traded in at FYE for $27.60 cash, before/after the flood it averages about $40 on eBay.

Saw a few new titles yesterday, nothing tempted me enough to pick up though. I'm on the fence with Joey Season 1. I'm a Friends fan, but I barely remember watching 1/2 an episode of Joey...

I went out tonight to 4 Big Lots with not a lot of luck and picked some box sets up and got extras of Pinky and the Brain V2, Animaniacs V2 and Tracy Takes On Season 2. I am still looking for Samurai Jack, Justice League, Blade, Pinky and the Brain V1, Animaniacs V1, Smallville BluRay or NipTuck BluRay and Wonder Woman if anyone wants to trade for the ones I listed above or if you want to sell any of the ones I am looking for, just send me a PM. Looks like I got to hit up some more stores on Sunday.

Finally found Smallville season 6 on Blu. Also found 1 copy of the Babylon 5 movie collection. Might want to add it to the master list.
