Buy one less Aniplex release this year and you'll have more than enough.

 

 

Ha! I actually haven't bought a single Aniplex title in 2017 yet - but that's only because I've already imported over 20 Japanese anime releases this year instead, which are as much or even more costly than Aniplex releases.  I do have about 8-10 Aniplex titles I need to purchase to get caught up, but I probably will only get a few of those in the coming months, as I have 10 more JP imports to get before the end of the year...  8-[

Looks like next week's 3D release of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is from Warner Archive instead of the main Warner Bros like the other versions, so I'm guessing it won't be available in stores/it won't fall to less than $35 anytime soon. I may just hold off and see what the UK gets--there's no date for their release but the pre-order on Amazon UK is currently at least $10 cheaper than the US release.

Is there a different Blu Ray 3D release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming?  The only one I saw is the $35 Steelbook version at Best Buy, but I don't need the 4K disc and was hoping to spend $25 at most.

Nope, it's only a Best Buy exclusive that comes with the 4K and steelbook. Better pre-order it if I were you.

Thanks, yeah just did. I guess I can sell the 4k disc and steelbook to recoup some money.

You can buy it from Bullmoose right now for $29.97 which is a bit steep, but the best deal for it at launch.  Doesn't even look like it comes with a slipcover.

Amazon has Poltergeist 3D for $12.67. Almost tempted for a blind but, just don't know how the 3d is or the movie itself

Someone on br.com mentioned there being a 4k - 3d import for around $40, looks like it's from South Korea.

Thanks for the heads up. Been waiting on Mad Magician.

Too late for preorders! Not available for shipping, and not available within 250 miles for store pickup, MCU steelbooks are never reprinted, so once they're gone (and it looks like they already are), they're gone for good. Going to try my luck release day, but likely will be cages full of them, with an employee telling me they are all reserved for preorderers. Looks like there will be a space in my MCU collection where this should have gone.

With the King Kong exclusive 4K/3D steelbook combo I was seeing the same thing, but I was finally able to order for store pickup on the Monday before or day of release.

That was King Kong. This is an MCU, which are notoriously low in number, or have a lot of demand. The first Guardians and Thor the Dark World sold out within minutes of the store opening, and those were identical to the regular versions in terms of content. This is the only way to get the 3-D version.

I would say check first thing on Tuesday morning to order online for store pickup and/or go right when the store opens--it's in the Weekly Ad, so it's likely they have some that will be for sale on release day.

I selected Store Pickup--today mine changed to say "Status: Ready for Pickup on Tue, Aug 22"--yesterday still said preordered.

Hmm, I didn't have that option when I ordered it. I guess I'll wait and see, though I don't think I'll get it tomorrow if it doesn't ship soon.

I guess I'm late to the party here- the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Blu-ray comes out tomorrow, but the only place selling a 3D version is the Best Buy steelbook that sold out weeks ago?  And every version of it is "currently unavailable" on Amazon. 

 

What's going on with this release?  What have I missed?

Just a heads up the 3d blu for Guardians 2 is region free so you could order of Zavvi or some other place.

So I checked my order status just now and it says it was delayed and my order would be cancelled if they couldn't ship it by the 20th.  Luckily, it looks like it's available for store pickup so I got one to pick up later today.

 

Go, go, go!

The Best Buy 4K/3D version is now listed as available for store pickup-only at all the stores around me--if you want this, I would place an order immediately, before the stores open.

I also placed an order for it this morning!  I can't believe I paid almost $40 for a 3D Blu-ray, but I guess that's what it's going to take to support an almost dead format!

Same here, and I don't even have a 3D TV. 🤐

Too bad the 3D SB didn't get a price drop like the regular one. The store I went to at noon ran out of the regular SB but still had 6 3D ones. Not surprising, especially given the price difference.

Umm you guys aren't looking at the value in this a it's a Disney/marvel steelbook that comes with 4K, 3d, blu and dc. Its a fantastic deal for all of that. If you're looking to offset some of your cost sell off the 4K disc or dc/dmr points.
You also have to consider marvel/Disney movies don't go on sale that often. Catalog 3d titles are $35 - $40 msrp and those don't have steelbook for 4K discs.

Not really complaining, as I consciously made the decision to purchase the 3D version despite not having a 3D TV (and probably never will considering it's close to dead in the consumer market) nor a 4K TV/player yet.  But there's still no denying that ~$40 is a lot to pay for a single movie, even if it comes with all that extra stuff.

Not accusing you of complaining but again, it's a great value for what it is.

Looks like Best Buy has a 3D exclusive for Wonder Woman:

 

Top item on this search:

You can't see the exclusive in the individual product listing yet though.

So I want to order some 3d blu rays and 4k from UK. They are preorders so amazon region I don't think can be right. Its more likely to be region free right?

Hard to say. Only some but you have to do some research on it.
