Got my Shrek fast too. I think it was only like 5 days after I registered on the website. I wouldn't have minded waiting the 8-10 weeks though....I haven't even watched the first one yet.

Amazon currently has the Xpand Universal X103 3D Glasses for a low $84. (I don't need any glasses right now, but if I did, I'd give these a try.)

Anyone use these with a Samsung TV? I have the LED 7000 series. I really don't like the glasses that came in the bundle w/MvA. They are uncomfortable after a while using

Unfortunately they're up to $97.94 now...

Personally, I think if I buy any more glasses I'm going to get the Avatar set and sell off Avatar. Two pairs of glasses for roughly $150 isn't too bad. They aren't cross-platform compatible, but at least I don't have to deal with inaccurate color reproduction. At least that's what I've heard about these, due to different TV manufacturers using differently colored tints on the lenses...

Hey, if you have about $120 you can easily get a copy of Avatar on eBay. Which is the exact reason that I no longer have my copy of Avatar. ;)

Good price! Too bad the movie wasn't very good (plot wise) in my opinion, but everything in the movie looked phenomenal in 3D.

If you have or can get a POP from the DVD pack or the two different BD packs (single BD or 3-disc BD/DVD/DC), there's a $10 rebate off of the 3D combo pack. All you need is the POP from the prior title, the POP from the new 3D combo pack and your receipt. Took about 6 weeks for the rebate to show up.

You could also trade in the original movie you have to Amazon for some money back as well. After the rebate and the trade-in, you should be able to net the 3D combo pack for under $10.

Looks like it's coming either as DVD or a 3-disc BD set, which I'm assuming will be 3D BD / 2D BD / DVD + DC.

The link in the OP to amazon shows: Number of discs: 1
So maybe 3D and 2D BD on one disc.

This is what I'm seeing when I searched for "gulliver's travels 2010":

http://www.amazon.co...t/dp/B002ZG97WO

Shows 3 discs in that package, so it's:
3D BD + 2D BD / 2nd BD disc of extras / DVD + DC
or 3D BD / 2D BD / DVD + DC
or 3D BD / 2D BD / DVD w/o DC

We'll know more closer to release date, obviously.

But that listing doesn't say anything about 3D whereas the one linked in the OP at least has 3D in its title.

Seems the green hornet is getting a 3D release as well! The 3D was decent in theaters but still an enjoyable movie.

Edit: Just noticed it was under TBA in the op.

I guess they're doing a stand-alone 3D BD release, as well as a 3-disc release that's 2D.

I think you may have assumed correctly after all. A guy on ebay lists this as BD3D / BD / DVD / DC and so does blu-ray.com.

I just bought Alice In Wonderland on 3D Blu-ray Disc with no upgrade rebate form inside, do I have to use the "Magic Code" on the movie rewards website to print it out or something? Anyone have a link to a printable version? (That is if the rebate will even work with a 'duplicate')

On the rebate form that was included with mine, it says that you have to submit the original rebate form. I'd call Disney so that they can send you one.

The $10 upgrade rebate for the 3D combo pack was included inside of my package, and just needed the POP from the prior title (DVD, 1-disc BD or DVD/DC/BD combo), the POP from the new 3D combo pack and the receipt of the 3D combo pack purchase.

The POP tabs are on the back area of the cover art, which you'll need to remove from under the clear plastic cover.

I think you may have assumed correctly after all. A guy on ebay lists this as BD3D / BD / DVD / DC and so does blu-ray.com.

Amazon lists only the combo pack as the other available version from the DVD version and they're usually right about that.

I wonder if he'll change his mind about not doing The Dark Knight Rises in 3D too.

I ordered the new Samsung 3D glasses bundle from Buy.com for $180. I'm going to redeem the coupons for Shrek 4 and Megamind, then sell the glasses and the Shrek collection, as I already have a copy, and keep Megamind. Should be able to at least get what I paid for the bundle from the glasses and Shrek, and get Megamind 3D free, or at very little cost. It'll be cheaper than paying for a copy from eBay.

Shipped yesterday, if UPS delivers on time, I should have it by tomorrow. It's now sold out delivered from Buy.com, they have it from Onecall.com, but their price is $499.

Is anyone else using Playstation Media Server to serve 3D content to the Ps3?

I didn't think my Dual Core laptop (about three years old) would be able to handle it, but with my laptop and Ps3 hooked up via Cat-5 cables, I can serve a movie on the laptop and watch it on the Ps3 in 3D with no skipping. Unfortunately, no fast forwarding or rewinding, either... but it's a cool alternate method of viewing 3D content.

Killzone 3D is amazing, also. Fantastic job!

As some people try to point out over there, if you don't want to watch 3D, it's obviously already in 2D so enjoy that.
That forum is full of 3d haters. it's like they think all 2d movies are being replaced by 3d... i have yet to see a 3D exclusive movie.
