    I went to Wal Mart this morning before work. I didn't expect to find it, but I tried anyway. I only have an hour to go to lunch, so if any of you guys have picked it up, can you let me know where, and if there were a few copies, so I can pick up my copy during lunch.

    Well, went to Best Buy today and couldn't find it so I asked someone there and he looked it up said it was pushed back to 3/7/2006, I said, it's out everywhere else. Of course employees at every retail store I've ever been to love to give out bad news and argue with you when you are right.

    Oh great. Thanks for the heads up on that. I'll go see if Fry's has it then.

    Why? To waste money? http://www.deepdiscountdvd.com has it for $35.88 and free shipping.

    Order it there. I got my copy in the mail yesterday. If you find it at a store, you'll pay $50 or more.

    I ordered mine today from Deep Discount. Even with the $14.95 for overnight shipping (which is optional), I still paid $10 less than I would have at Best Buy - which still says that the release date is today (28th) - and none of the stores in my area had it. :roll Thank God for Best Buy's online "store availability" searches....that's the only way they have helped me out...by telling me DONT GO TO US. BUY IT SOMEWHERE ELSE. FOR LESS.

    IT's Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory for Media Freaks. And they may or may not have it there, but when BEast Wars came out, they had it in the morning. We'll see.

    Glhboy we have a Fry's here in Indiana in Fishers. I highly recomend going there just to see it. They do usually have great prices and great sales (I picked up Forza and Episode 3 for Xbox the week they were released for $35 a piece as well as finding Resident Evil 2 for Gamecube there)

    9820 Kincaid Drive
    Fishers, IN 46038

    Its off the road kinda back behind some other businesses but its not to far off the interstate.

    Here is my check list of no finds:

    Best Buy
    Circuit City
    3 Targets
    2 Wal-marts
    FYE

    This is a time when I wish friggin Media Play was still around!!!! God damn Best Buy!!! The guy told me they'd have it for $39.99!!!

    So instead of waiting to who knows when, I just ordered it from DDD for $35 with overnight shipping, so I'll have it on Thurs (I better for the price I paid!!). This is just BS though. store will get in garbage like Sanford and Son and Friends that no one even cares about, yet, they won't get in the DVDs people want (especially Target and Walmart). I hate ordering it online though because there is a 60% chance I'll get it with a bruised box, and a 30% chance I'll get it defective and then have to ship the god damn thing back just to wait again.

    BM is not a high profile release outside our own community. Big chain stores may or may not get them in depending on how big their DVD department is (BB probably will, WM probably not). Unless you have a really good specialty store near you, online is your best bet.
