    imagine my excitement to discover, by quite an accident, the latest advert for the new 'Lord of the Rings' release!

    in case anyone missed it, here's what the 'Future Shop' flyer screams:

    Nov.12.2002:

    4 DVD, $38 Extended Edition features 30 additional minutes in film, four audio commentaries and much more!

    5 DVD, $78 Extended Edition Gift Set (news to me!) including 'collectible Argonath' polystone figures, Exclusive Decipher trading cards and additional featurette footage and photo'


    after all this, I'm thinkin' a gathering is in order...

    If anyone can show me a flyer with the ad printed in it, I can probably get them a cheaper deal at Blockbuster.

    Yeah, the deluxe gift set is all that and a bag of chips too. The statues are gorgeous! What kind of deal can we get on that baby?

    Any updates on prices from Blockbuster Darth_Haggis?

    On both this one and the AotC DVD.

    Was looking on Amazon.ca last night, and they were selling the combo in Widescreen for $106 Canadian. But I would much rather buy them from a store, so I have them in my hands that day as opposed to waiting 3 or 4 days for them.

    For the Lord of the Rings 5 Disc collector's set, I can get it for about $60+tax, or the 4 disc for about $32+tax. For AOTC, it would be $19-$20+tax. (And then you have to factor in the wait until I can get it to you...) Also, if you can get me a flyer with the cheapest price in town listed in it, Blockbuster will pricematch. (and then I get 20% off of that price).

    I must say though, the extended scene on the LOTR are pretty impressive and so is the 2nd disc of AOTC. All of the special features are amazing!

    I got impatient...

    I went out and got my WideScreen copy of the LOTR... full 5 disk box set...

    I couldn't resist... :)

    (Still gotta get the AotC DVD, so I may beg you for that favor Darth_Haggis unless I buy it at Safeway for 23 bucks)

    So where is AOTC/LOTR dvd cheapest? Other than Darth Haggis' super deal of course...I'm stuck doing assignments for the next couple of days and would like to jump in my car and buy them as SOON as I'm done.

    Thanks!

    I've got AOTC (widescreen) and LOTR (5 disc box set). They cost me $21.59+tax and $59.99+tax respectively. Please PM me if you want me to hook you up with a copy.
