My local BB has the Brave cases and 3 Dead Island steels left. the Brave case is $7.50

I tried to price match the ACIII hard cover guide there too with the Amazon price, but all they had was the soft cover. I ended up getting it at full price at Wal Mart.

I Know, I Know, I should have just asked last night when I was there... but it didn't occur to me...

Has anyone been lucky enough to find steels at BBuy after release week?
If so, what did they ring up for please?

Yes, picked up Cinderella last night and they rung it up like a regular pre-order price, $7.50 for this particular one. It was a spur of the moment buy as it was the first one I saw in store. They were gone pre-release at one point at both of the BBs I frequent.

I found two Muppets cases at mine yesterday. I figured them at $7.50, but now that you asked I'm kicking myself for not getting them price checked as they could have pennied out like the Cinderella plushes I bought.

They probably still have a bunch of TDK/Batman Begins and one or two others from when they released those (Goodfellas, Matrix for example). They're $20-25 depending on which one. I found a Prototype 2 one about two months ago. It rang up $60 without the game.

They had the display up for Brave on one of the new releases display but it was either sold out or not put out yet. Couldnt find a person to ask and i was short on time so had to leave. Will try again later this week

Same here, went this morning around 11am, but guess that was too late, as the shelf was empty. I asked and they said that whatever they put out was it. Hoping there's a restock soon, I'll also be checking the Best Buy by my work tomorrow, to see if they by any chance have some.

For the Muppets cases, you can go back and "cancel the preorder" and gete the case for free. I did that picking up a Ghost Rider SoV case a month after the movie came out.

I must say, I'm on the fence with the Disney Metal Paks. As much as I love a metal case, I kind of prefer the lenticular slips of the 3D releases.

Side comment: Noticed a couple interesting things at my local Target last night.
1. They've restocked the ET Steelbooks
2. They now have The Incredibles with a slipcover. Possible reprint?

Just bought a couple Brave...
Curious if a BBuy store has left over steels, how much do they ring up for?


I saw a Goodfellas Steelbook from a while back at my BBY when I went to get Brave but my store rang it up for $20 and decided not to because I didn't really care for it. My BBY also had a ton of Snow White and the Huntsman Steels but still at $25. I bet it will have a local discount soon.

I couldn't find any ET Steelbooks at mine.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

So Nemo gets one, but the Incredibles and Toy Story 1 and 2 don't? The completionist in me is weeping.

I would be very picky about checking it if you did it for shipping.

I did a pre-order of Snow White & The Huntsman online for shipping and three times in a row, they shipped it in a glorified plastic bag. No box, just a plastic bag. Every time, it was dented, bent and pretty much destroyed in shipment.

It took multiple phone calls and complaints, though they eventually shipped it in a box. That one came perfect.

I'm waiting to order it for in-store pickup rather than take a chance on it getting eaten in shipment again.

I don't have a way to get to the Mall easily, so I have to usually order online. I won't put up with dents or shit. Thanks for the tip.

Don't feel too bad, I went to pick up the SW&tH steel the morning of release. Luckily I got there not long after the store opened because I only saw 5-6 copies on the shelf. Out of those few, only 1-2 copies were NOT dented up.

Somehow the upper portion(underneath the flap/cardboard) of the steelbooks had gotten crushed to where the top of the case was bulged up.

Luckily some of these internet retailers(Play.com, Amazon.de) have learned how to properly ship steelbooks. Unfortunately, places like BBY and Target don't deal with them enough to care.

Picked up a Brave Steelbook. I had to go to customer service and tell them the SKU before they even made an effort to look for it.

Went to a random Target yesterday and they still had 3-5 of the ET Steelbooks.
Debated picking up a couple of them and seeing if I could make a few on Ebay or whatever but got distracted by a shiny penny on the floor and forgot all about it until right now.

I picked up a Brave steelbook/case on Thursday. The case looked so nice that I cancelled my $12.99 DeepDiscount preorder of the BR+DVD combo pack, and I now plan on buying the film from BBY. :)
