    Nope. I got mine for Christmas, my Brother got it for me and he said he got it at TARGET.

    I have only seen 2 in the same Target store he bought mine.

    Before I got it, I'd ask the clerks at various stores if they had it in, since they would have a spot for it on the shelves. Apparently, it actually sells out very quickly regardless of price and they have trouble keeping it in stock.

    None of my local Best Buys could even keep them in stock. I think it has now become a website exclusive for them hence to eliminate the shipping costs to the stores.

    [!] If you do find one in stores, check the outer clear plastic case for any bends, dents, or crushed areas, those sections will appear milky white. The outer cases are not very durable, as they are thin plastic and are prove to easy damage if dropped, hit, or even had something even a tad heavy placed on it.

    Other than the weak outer case, the thing is GOLDEN.

    Depending on where you buy it, you'll either pay in the $60's-80's or even the 100's. Shop around for this one first to get the best bang for your buck.

    Nice. Thanks!

    Amazon's got it for $75.99 with free shipping. Methinks I be grabbing it.

    Any word on similar treatment for Superman and JL/JLU?

    ...I see like 30 of them at my local Targets.

    It is a great buy and a good deal for those who didnt buy any previous boxsets. If you did, it's not worth a repurchase.

    i got the 4 volumes (individually) when I found em at Circuit City years ago.
    But when i saw this box set- and the price- i was livid.
    this box set is a great deal and at 1/2 of what i paid for my volumes. This new boxset is great.
    i won't get it for obvious reasons, just telling those who ain't got their BTAS affairs in order, GET THIS and be happy.

    I did see that in Best Buy during the holidays. I have my eye on it, but can't pull the trigger for some reason.

    Would love to see this with JL/JLU as well.

    I got it. THIS is the reason I didnt bother with individual volumes, as I expected it to get the 'All in one box' treatment eventually.

    It's so huge..I dont know where to start.

    I look at it every time I go to Target. I plan on saving up for it, but knowing my luck, they won't have it any longer by time I have enough money for it. Should have picked it up back when I had a good amount of cash. Hopefully they keep it in-stock for a good long time. Seems like it's in the clearence section already though (saw some extremely cheap DVD's put there a couple weeks ago).

    i saw it on amazon but it looks like i gotta check out my local targets.

    update-just called 5 local targets,a blockbuster,and 3 best buys.
    a lady at one of the targets told me it's discontinued and it's likely they'll never get it in again but with these people you never know. she said their price was 84.99. best buy and blockbuster were useless as well. looks like i'll be ordering it from amazon.

    I have at least 1 season of this. When I get home, if I have only 1 season, I will buy it. If I have 2 seasons, then I won't.

    But this is a fantastic price for a fantastic series. And it was mentioned before, but they should give this treatment to Justice League and JLU.

    Thanks to the massive box set being released, I was able to buy all 4 volumes of the previous BTAS releases pre-owned for a total of about $10 each, considering I got two of them free.

    The big boxset looks pretty, but I'm cheap and there's just not enough exclusive content offered with it to make me want to double-dip.

    It is a Limited run, but I don't know of exactly how many. I think it's more of a "we'll make these things in 2008-2009 only" and after they stop production what sells, sells.

    Hope you find one, it's DEFINITELY worth the hunt.

    I would have bought it had I not bought all of the individual boxes when they came out. Looks pretty rad :)

    I saw it down at Target when I was Christmas Shopping for my family, just across a Charlie Brown Holiday Boxset. I didn't $80+ dollars on me to buy it and I couldn't spend my Money on anything for myself until I finished shopping for everyone else.

    I bought the seperate season sets when they came out awhile back... it's too bad, the packaging for this looks really nice.
