    Even though I'm on record as not being a fan of the Photoshop direction on the movie posters and cover art, the Best Buy tin is definitely worth getting. It's nicely constructed and worth shelling out a few extra bucks. It really transforms a very good movie into a treasured keepsake.

    I got the Wocka Wocka! Edition with the lunch box... which actually turned out to be cheaper than buying the Wocka Wocka! Edition by itself >_>

    Has anyone found a way to pause the blu-ray so that we can freeze frame without going into the intermission bits? I'm trying to pause to see things in Walter's bedroom. Maybe I'll have to low-res freeze-frame on the DVD. It's just that the Blu-ray transfer is so beautiful.

    Jamie! :D Just go into the "setup" section in the main menu - there's then an option below audio and subtitles to turn the Intermission feature on or off. ;)

    Ask Pinkflower7783 already said, the lunchbox set was only $27.99.

    I wasn't going to get that originally, but since it was cheaper I thought why not?

    I'm pretty sure that pricing in the larger urban areas is always marked down for the first 5 days or so of release. Those markets have a lot of retail competition, so they do what they have to do to get the sales... oh how I wish I lived in a big city again sometimes, lol.

    I will say when I went in to Best Buy to pick up my copy the cashier said a lot of people came in asking for the lunchbox edition and they only got a few in and had already sold out of them.

    At first I wasn't thrilled with this feature because of it (and I've been pausing scenes a lot). Then I figured out I could turn off the intermission, though even without it on the blu-ray a "chapter selection" icon appears whenever I pause it. Not sure if it's just because I watch blu-ray on my computer. But then again, it shouldn't be that way on the regular DVD (has anyone posted comparison photos between DVD and blu-ray, though I can't imagine it being too different).
  12. I had 10 bucks in BB RZ certificates and the DMR coupon, so I only paid a little more than 14 bucks for the Wocka Wocka with the lunchbox. They didn't last too long at my BB, either.

    Phil I have found five Easter eggs! the punch teacher extended scene and the miss poogy oinkerview is on the Blu-ray! The punch teacher was the hardest to find but it is at the top left side of Play. It's Opposite the extended Camilla forget you scene egg. I can't say what order the buttons are but I think it may involve a quick circle of the left down right up buttons. I just pressed buttons like crazy to find them. It just stinks when you find it and then loose it by pressing another button quickly. But I am happy to report that everything that was to be on it is on the Blue-ray. Just wish there was more deleted scenes.

    That's the one I got. The bonus disc has Florence Henderson, Twiggy, Peter Sellers, John Cleese, Alice Cooper and Sylvester Stallone. It's in a sleeve attached to the back of the combo pack case. Good luck getting yours, if you decide to go after it!

    I am so excited that people are snapping up this movie! Does anyone know of a good resource for tracking home video sales?

    I was lucky, there was only one copy of the Value Pack with the Lunchbox left at Best Buy. and it took me a while to find it because it was on the Disney shelf and not with the other copies of the movie for some odd reason.

    I only watched the DVD so far, I can't watch the Blue-Ray until I get myself a Blue-Ray player. Anyway, the blooper reel is AWESOME!!! :)

    Well Amazon we are now at number 2 and 3 so people are really buying up this movie! I read somewhere that Disney lost a whole lot of money on the new movie "John Carter" So now they will look at how well they did with the Muppets and spend more money on them then other projects.
