I guarantee you'd see actual bitching and moaning if their gesture was a DVD copy. They didn't have to do anything, I get it. It's great of them and all, but they should have either provided the 3D version just like what was in this set since that's what a good amount of people buying it wanted, or perhaps provide an offer to upgrade to that for like $5 more or something.

And let's not be naive and think Amazon is doing this just because they're so damn nice. They're doing this because they know this delay will inevitably lead to mass cancellations from people who want to buy The Avengers at release. This is being done as an act of good faith in the hopes that you extend it back to them and keep your pre-order for the pricier set. They are still a business last I checked.


very simple solution to this if its not to your liking why dont you just buy the 3d version and get what you want instead of thinking they should give you the 3d version because its not to your liking.

Honestly, I'd forgotten that the collector's set even had the 3D versions of the films.

Great gesture by Amazon. While I did not have the collection preordered (I had preordered the 4 disc copy instead), its still a great reminder of Amazon's CS. Nice to see some positive feedback on them instead of the deals forum where its all "OMGBESTBUY"

Bah I couldn't get them to credit me the coupon for the 3D version of Avengers. But that's ok I'll be keeping my preorder anyway for the 10-disc set. I went ahead and ordered the free blu-ray/dvd copy compliments of Amazon. Can't complain!

If you need a cheap filler to make your purchase over $25 for free shipping, use the Pert Plus shampoo sample. Currently it's only $0.69.

Total for my purchase? A whopping $0.65!!! Just too bad I don't like Pert Plus...I'll just use it on my dogs.

CAG? I'm Cheap Ass everything :booty:  :booty:

I also tried to get the 3D version and was shot down. It kind of makes sense why they are not including it since the 3D version is included in the set and since we're being enticed to keep the set we'd be double getting two copies of the 3D set...and we'd almost all cancel it since some of us already have the other films in 3D...bah...whatever I'm getting a free copy and that's that :lol:

Amazon dropped the price of the 3D set to $24.99, the same price that the regular BD/Combo set was when they provided the free movie offer. So essentially they could have provided the 3D version for free since they dropped it to that price anyway, and yes that's a complaint.

Ouch. There's no way that little guide is $40 nice. I was hoping Best Buy would get an exclusive slip for the regular version of the movie, but I guess not...

$69.99 for this and a free poster if the store has any left.

Just picked one of these up at the midnight launch. I didn't really see that many of them so the first day might be your only shot if you want something cool to tide you over 'till next year.

And I do love this thing :D Not as cool as having a Tesseract sitting on the shelf but I'm still happy to get something nice for Day 1.

Your store was giving away posters? Lucky! The only poster I saw was for WOW. Went to the midnight release, there were a lot of people, but I think a lot of them were for WOW. They had quite a few collector's editions, but I don't see them lasting very long. I think it's really neat, the light up box is awesome, and the book is really cool, hardcover by DK. I thought it was gonna be a flimsy magazine, so that was a surprise.

Plus, if you enter the code given on Avengers Assembleoffer.com, you can get a free digital comic, free soundtrack and a free poster, but that goes for all versions since they all have that insert.

My store had about 30-40 people, more or less. Seemed like a lot of people were there for Fifa too if I was hearing things right.

Hopefully anyone who wants a copy of the BB exclusive gets one.

A near by store gave out posters for the avengers, that wow expansion and border lands 2. The avengers posters were damaged (ripped, bent for some reason. Those who picked up Fifa got a tshirt. It wasn't a big turn out and just a joke. Last year's MW3 midnight release was also a joke as all they did was let us play the game for 2 hours and fed us soda and chips. Also trying to push that new sony 3d tv that no one really bought. Who cares. Midnight releases need to be more fun with contests and stuff.

This would be good if you could get it without the stupid 3D versions. It'd bring the price way down for guys like me who have zero interest in anything 3D.....

Are you talking about the Blu ray set? If do, I kinda wanted to take advantage of my 3DTV.

If you were one of the many, many people who pre-ordered Marvel's Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection box set - the one that was shaped like Nick Fury's Tessaract-holding brief case from the Avengers, and which contains the Blu-rays of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America, Incredible Hulk and Avengers - you know your pre-order was canceled. This was because Marvel Studios used a very specific Germn briefcase in the movie, and then kind of forgot to license the rights to the briefcase's design for the Blu-ray collection.

But the set is back, in a slightly more generic briefcase! It contains all the same things as the original did, including snippets from Marvel's up and coming features such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Ant Man. But we're most curious about the alleged "And Then Shawarma After" featurette, which we're still certain was filmed in RDJ's hotel room during the press conference for The Avengers. I guess we'll find out when the set arrived on April 2nd.

Meanwhile, Marvel has graciously provided this never-before-seen alternate ending from Thor, featuring a super hyped up Dr. Erik Selvig ordering a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents, while Jane Foster and sidekick Darcy to return the blonde sex god back to Earth.

Amazon jacked the price up to $197 - of course, if you already had a preorder, they'll honor that price

I can't get the video to work. :( But why in the heck was an alternate ending left out of the Blu-ray of Thor!?
