    I had gone out shopping today and had decided to stop by my local best buy to find a movie I have been looking for, but they didn't have it. anyways, i had decided to look around the tv show boxed sets isle and after a few minutes i spotted it on the shelves. there was 4 i saw on the shelves, so i got one and now i am a very very happy person.

    It looks like its 129.99 from the receipt, that would make it cheaper than online?

    Can you take pictures of the inside? I am wondering is it the same boxsets that are separate?

    Huh. This seems to be an early leak, too. Release date for this is supposed to be the same as RotF -- at least that's how Amazon still has it listed.

    Ouch. I remember reading that it would be more at retail than it was online direct through Shout! Factory. Looks like SF has done it again.

    The MSRP was set at I believe $170. Then again MSRP is always higher than actual retail price.

    Amazon has it listed for: $152.99
    Buy.com has it for preorder for $108.99

    Haha! I KNEW it would be cheaper at retail. While I have a lot of respect for Shout Factory for putting these out with such love and care, I always thought the $140 price tag was a bit extreme. So if the OP bought this for $130, I'm sure the box set will be even cheaper the week of its official release, as dvds at Best Buy are usually on sale during their initial release date.

    I still feel ripped off buying this off the Shout Factory website.

    And so you should. SF should never have wholesaled this set at a price that would allow retailers to sell it less than they did direct from their website. Effectively they ripped off fans knowing there would be some who would pay just to have it 3-4 months early. If buy.com has it for $109, SF should have sold it on their website for no more than $99.
