Today's the day! Without too much fuss, Target's exclusive AT-ACT Driver has joined the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story DVD and Blu-Ray at retail today. It's worth noting Target has an exclusive deluxe Blu-Ray set with bonus content as well, and the price may vary. The tag said $29.99 but it rang up $27.99. Go figure.
If you want to see if the 6-inch AT-ACT Driver figure is in your area, check DPCI 087-06-1115.
If you loved The Force Awakens but not so much that you actually bought it, there's something coming for you in November. StarWars.com just announced Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition which, depending on where you live, could be out in October or November. Four discs with tons of bonus content could be yours.
If you're so inclined, Amazon has Blu-Ray and DVD releases for Star Wars Rebels Season 1 up for grabs. DVD is currently $39.99, Blu-Ray is $45.99.
Clone Wars: The Lost Missions DVD and Clone Wars: The Lost Missions Blu-Ray are in stores now. I saw them at Walmart over lunch, and you can click those links to get yours at Amazon. Each set has the unaired (but Netflixed) episodes, plus some reels of unaired episodes.
Amazon has the 9-disc, 6-movie Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI) Blu-Ray set for $59.99, which is about the lowest that I've seen it. The main reason for picking it up are the deleted scenes - but don't throw out your DVDs, because the DVD special features and deleted scenes differ from here and the DVDs you bought a few years ago.
I assume you've bought it by now.
It's coming! Season 5 of The Clone Wars will be out on DVD and Blu-Ray. Not only will it be sold in a set by itself, but a better, much cheaper Blu-Ray of all 5 seasons is coming to penalize those of us that bought the sets along the way.
Tis the season for randomly marked-down products! Walmart has marked down their Ultimate Gift Sets for Star Wars as well as Transformers and Beyblade, but prices vary by store-- the $30 sets were as little as $15 in my neighborhood, which is a steal given you get 5 figures in the set.
The Star Wars Blu-Ray hit stores (and mailboxes) today, and as expected the complete Star Wars Holiday Special animated segment is included. If you ever wanted to see what was basically a backdoor pilot for Droids, it's here!
If all that weren't enough, the very charming LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace TV special is coming to home video at Wal-Mart this week. It's $13.00 and includes young Han Solo-- the same figure was handed out as a promo item at Comic-Con, if you were very lucky or in the right place. Just click here to pre-order, or wait to hit up Wal-Mart this weekend when you get your 2 gallon pickle jar, rubber gloves, AAA batteries, and/or sack of peanut M&Ms.
The Star Wars Saga Blu-Ray hits this Friday, and it seems that the price wars have not started yet. Amazon, Wal-Mart.com, and Target presently have the best price in the USA with $79.99 for all 6 films. And remember, the trilogy sets do not include the bonus feature discs.
Loose lips sink starships, and the eyes of the Empire are everywhere! Speaking of eyes, since yours already laid eyes on these movies we're not considering anything a spoiler here, but MillenniumFalcon.com and numerous other sites lit up today with MP3s, video clips, and details of new changes to the original trilogy. Some sound good. Some comments seem hyperbolic. And it seems that, unsurprisingly, there are still a few things left to fix.
StarWars.com posted a feature on the Blu-Ray cleanup process, highlighting botched effects being repaired, Lightsaber fixes, and a whole mess of other interesting tidbits-- of course, not all of them. Do read on and be sure to check this one out.
The Home Theater Forum posted a 2-part feature (with a third promised) discussing the discs, their many sound mixes, and it's a really good read. And would you believe they talk to Matt Wood as well as throw in a nugget about the Holiday Special?
Super-duper awesome movie site TheDigitalBits.com has posted impressions of the Blu-Ray collection we're all waiting for. They confirmed seeing some of the deleted scenes, highlighted some of the techinical details, and even confirmed the movies are new edits with new stuff in them.
