iNCREDiPiNOY usually brings this news but...

If you took advantage of the Thor exclusives offered by Best Buy, this news will sound a bit familiar. As it did with that Paramount Pictures/Universal Studios title, the retail chain will carry a limited edition Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray/DVD combo pack with special packaging not available anywhere else. The release will feature cover art from Captain America's first comic appearance in 1941 with an iconic image of Cap punching Hitler.

The combo pack will come with Blu-ray, DVD and digital versions of the film as well as over 70+ minutes of bonus features, including the original Marvel One-Shot short film "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer" and an exclusive sneak peek at The Avengers Movie (May 2012) and more.

Those who pre-order the title will also get a free one-month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited (the same deal that was offered with Thor).

Special Features:

-Feature film with commentary by director Joe Johnston, director of photography Shelly Johnson and editor Jeff Ford

-”Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor’s Hammer”

-Featurettes: “Outfitting a Hero,” “Howling Commandos,” “Heightened Technology,” “The Transformation,” “Behind the Skull,” “Captain America Origins,” “The Assembly Begins”

Thanks! :) Still prefer the steelbooks without the comic cover on the back though...

Yay! :D

For another slipcover? :-s

Wish it was a steelbook after all and not a slipcover.

I had been surprised that the 3D version of Thor didn't get the slipcover treatment, though as I didn't hear any review give the 3D version anything except a "meh" or worse, that explains why the 3D version didn't get it.

I wonder if the same thing will hold true here or not for Captain America.

I'll still end up buying the 3d version just to have it in the collection, plus these 3d discs never seem to be on sale after the release week.

Some placed had the slip covers for the 3D version.

I got one for mine (at Best Buy).

It does say "Limited Edition".

Does the UPC cover part of the comic cover for Thor? I've seen the back of it from multiple sources and both had the UPC covering part of the art. If that's the case, then it completely ruins these covers

edit: okay after seeing some vids, it's a sticker, which can be peeled off (hopefully cleanly)

I didn't see it in the theatres, so I hadn't seen the 3D first-hand. Every review I ran across for the 3D disc pretty much said it wasn't that great to outright bad. That's why I passed on the 3D version for Thor and assuming Cap goes the same way, will probably pass on the 3D version of that one as well. We'll see how the reviews are.

Nice find, though that slip cover isn't BB-exclusive, the 3D version for Thor and Cap America both say "Limited Edition".

Ship me all of your slipcovers.

The Thor slip that was exclusive to BB was the terribly ugly all-red one.

I'll probably pick it up since I prefer the slip-cover to the regular cover, although I'd prefer a steelbook.

Now, I didn't say I was giving up my slip covers, did I? :lol:

I'm just saying that I would have liked another steelbook like they had with some of their other movies, such as Salt, Hurt Locker or Halo Legends.

Thor was the cheapest at release with it being $22.99, so I'm hoping Cap America is the same price for the combo pack.

Shrike, you're certainly not missing anything not getting the 3d version. It's ok but as you read, not mind blowing. I have just started buying 3d versions of movies I'm interested in because I've kicked myself after missing out on a few on sale.

That German SB looks nice. Any word on region locking? I can't see the UK one since I'm on my phone ATM.

WHAT THE WHAT?!?! Captain America was shot in 2D and converted? My mind is blown, how come Green Hornet's conversion to 3D looked so crappy? I saw Cap twice in the theater and I was 100% sure it was shot in 3D, seriously I can't believe it was shot in 2D, wow, this kinda makes me want to see if Conan The Barbarian's 3D conversion is any good.

It does suck the most expensive Combo pack isn't getting the exclusive treatment, it's only the slipcover that's different, right?

Anyone know if The Avengers is being shot in 3D?

Yes.

Director Joss Whedon is filming The AVENGERS in true 3-D.

I liked the Thor Best Buy-exclusive slipcover and this one looks great too. I'll probably get it from best Buy unless somebody else offers a way better deal.

Marvel should have used this as the BB-exclusive slipcover instead:

Evans does look a little odd in the shot on the front of the BB slipcover. Like his head is too big and his hand's too small. That's what happens when you use way too much editing software on a photograph.

It's down to $24.99 from its initial $29.99.

My guess it'll hit the same point as Thor when it released, $22.99. We have a little less than three weeks to go for release (10/25), so it might end up being down another $2 by then.

I don't suppose Best Buy has a pre-order price guarantee like Amazon? I'd like to order it now, but only if they'll match the price when it releases.

They don't. Wait it out for another week or so and I'd guess it'll be down to $22.99, when they change the pricing around to work into what the ad for release week would show.
