MTM and MFS Double Feature DVD "Insane Deal"

    While usually MFS and MTM are found on individually released DVDs at stores for a typical and cheap price of $5. Though, when I went to Target yesterday I found this and it was ONLY $5

    It's the same 2 DVDs from the individual releases, but in one DVD set. In my opinion two muppet movies for $5 in stores is insanity! You'd usually pay a reasonable $10 for this double feature DVD. I mean you have to pay $14.99 for TM or TMM on DVD, and even KSY at Target was $5! Is Sony just desperate for an extra buck with such low low prices! Also, it was no sale, this was a permanent price! Is this just because these two films don't sell well?

    Sheesh... Now that is insane, I haven't a clue why Sony lowered the price that much as you said maybe they aren't selling well and they need extra cash or maybe they just have surplus of all these discs and this double pack is the easiest way to clear them?

    The prices are MORE THAN INSANE! I mean even at thrift stores, two movies on DVD would cost you $6+tax, and those are second-hand items! Usually, Target would have MTM and MFS seperately for $5, but this is just plain crazy. Granted these aren't new releases, and not something Sony's going to market at all anymore. I might buy it, because I got some spare $5, because maybe MFS will be in widescreen, I assume that there are two seperate discs inside, and there's nothing different about them, though I already have MFS which I bought for the same price, so what's the point of re-buying it? Even if I did buy it I'd end up buying MTM seperately as well, because I'd like to physically have individual DVDs for individual films.

    Yeah I'd probably advise you not to buy it, I personally hate having a double of the same DVD for some reason, just get MTM separately because as you said it's probably going to just be the same disc anyways.

    Ya, that's true, but it still irks me that Target probably won't sell MTM seperately anymore, so I have to go to like Food4Less of Ralphs or someplace, and cough up $5.89 + tax. Oh well, it's better than buying it online with all that shipping and handling.

    Yeah your better off with that, though 5.89 is still a bit off for my liking, it must ikr you that target don't sell it anymore? Maybe you could ask if they have it in the back or so? Cos you never know they sometimes have some old products in the stock rooms.

    Thanks for the tip, I should have done that the one time I actually had money to spare, but I could only find MFS, so I bought that instead. Then every other time I went to Target with no money to spare, MTM lay rotting away on the shelves :ouch::crazy:! Next time I go, I'll certainly ask someone if they have MTM in the back, it's still the only muppet film I don't own besides MWoO and TM'11.

    It's no problem mon Amie, a lot of people don't do it but it gets results lol, and I know the feeling of somthing being their at at exactly the wrong time, blame the external forces ha, As we discussed in a another topic the DVD prices seem absolutely extreme where you are, TM'11 is like $7 dollars here.

    Of course! It's only TMS S1 that has cuts.

    $7, now that's something I can afford. I saw that at Target too, and it was $14.96, and the TMM DVD 2013 was also the same price!

    Well you could just buy this 2 movie set for five bucks, than either sell your other DVD copy of MFS to a used DVD store (though you won't get much money at all) or give it as a gift to another Muppet fan in your life. I've done that many times with DVDs.

    I have that 2 disc set myself, though it think I spent ten bucks on it, it was quite a few years ago. I own so many DVDs, I was happy about this if for no other reason that to save a little space on my DVD racks,:).

    I would rather not, if there are seperate discs that I could buy I just can not see why I should buy a double feature. I just want MTM, so ya thanks for the tip, but I will just wait until I can find MTM.

    Well, I might have to buy this now because of this.
