    Oh HELL! I actually wanted those, but Suncoast costs about double of any other place in town on non-exclusives. I can't imagine the tins are going to be cheap if they're Suncoast exclusives in the US.

    actually we're pretty competetive when it comes to new releases....the 2-disc SE of the metal tins aren't going to be more then about $25 dollars plus tax...but they're are two seperate tins is the key....autobot and decepticon....its when it comes to movies that have been out for a while that are kinda spendy.....i mean, go look for casino royale...its like $26 right now reg price....

    For blu-ray? I see it for $19.99 on regular DVD pretty regularly.

    Mostly, I'm embarrassed to say I bought most of Gundam Wing at Suncoast for the $40 per disc price, then found out I could get it for $18 a disc elsewhere.

    But, hey, $25 per set for something that costs $22 for the two disc set elsewhere is surprisingly good for Suncoast. Or are the tins the single disc version?

    I believe this is what Halo is referring to. Exclusive to other stores in other countries as well (ala the Target Transforming case).

    There is only 1 case, with the Autobot logo on the front and Decepticon logo on the back.

    Is Sam Goody going to be carrying these metal cases? I know they bought out the Suncoast near where I live. Just wondering.

    Also, this is for the 2-disc set, right?

    One step ahead. Look for something like that in the next day or two (well before DVD release)

    Is this available on Suncoast's website, or is this just going to be an in-store exclusive?

    So are there any stores in the US that are getting this case? (i.e. with both autobot and decepticon) From what I get from this thread, Suncoast actually has 2 different cases.

    Can you get the metal tin set online at their site as well? We used to have a Suncoast in the closest mall to us, but it closed down awhile back. And it doesn't mention anything on their site.

    Where do you guys live? I live right outside of NYC now and suncoast has been gone for almost 2 years. All of them shut down and I thought the company went out of buisness. Same with Sam Goody, I haven't seen one in about a year. Are these stores just gone from the North East?

    Okay, two questions:

    1) Is this one case with both emblems, or two seperate cases?

    2) Will FYE be getting these? (I think they're owned by the same company.)

    All right here is the scoop. The case comes as the special edition set at Suncoast. The kicker is it is only for those that preorder and you get to pick which case. I paid 3.25 and selected the Decepticon case. Hope this helps.
