    tempted to go for the alien quadrilogy.

    not the greatest fan of all the films but it needs to be got at that cheeky little price.

    videonasty, i work at mvc, no word on if its also on the website but i doubt it, most of the sales we have are never on the websites, no luck on getting the list, will try to get it ;), i should point out that some of the better deals like the alien quad we are initially only getting some limited number of boxsets due to the low price (each store getting a certain amount at start) but the longer it goes on the more chance of getting some more, so if you really want it i would get it the first day of sale

    *hopes its on the website*

    It wouldnt be worth my while driving to the nearest MVC as it'd cost me more than what Woolies are selling it at (£30), so hopefully it'll be online too....

    Popped in at lunch time and they said they sold all 27 copies this morning, you could always try customer services to see if they can transfer a copy from another store.

    They were still filling up the shelves though.

    I went into my local MVC at 5.30 after work today (the first day of the sale) and they were sold out of Alien Quad.

    It may just be me but it does nark me that they have these special offers and such little stock. I think it is manipulative.

    me3101 i can understand where your coming from but you have to understand to get it at this price, the retailer only gets a set amount divided by each store, on average each store got about 15-25 odd, which is better then having 3-4, with the popularity of the alien boxset there was no doubt it would sell well, in an ideal world it would be nice if each store had 100 copies each but theres no way you could get that many off a supplier at the discounted price, you could if you want to pay say £50

    ami, I suggest you read hornydragon's last post and tell me why he only got a kicked in display box when each store .. quote 'gets on average 15-25 copies' and yet he walked away with a bashed copy after the doors are open. ?

    What's the point in having a sale if only the staff are able to get copies?

    Anyway last time I checked Virgin are still selling it For £29.99, although that was two days ago.

    I emailed MVC and asked if it would be possible to order at that price online because there wasnt a store near me (worth a try ;)), the reply came back saying;

    They sent me the address of the head office (didnt even ask for anything of the sort, just asked if the deal was ever going to be online)

    Strange Strange People.....

    thats why they are special offers not the retail price......... HMV have loads of stock at £34.99, Woolies have it for £30 stock varys.... Virgin have it for £30 but little stock, none in cardiff...... Actually Cardiff MVC had no Aliens left my mate got it for me from Newport....... I'd really wanted this but £60 is a lot of money for a set... £25 is a steal......... I am being smug? Or was i just lucky?

    Arcam, Hornydragon does not mention it was a kicked in box in his post unless im reading it wrong, the exdisplay box is actually the case, the aliens boxes are either put out with the insides behind the counter or the discs taken out and put on the shop floor, for ease and security we took the insides out (some toe rags like to steal the disc holder insides), there is no dummy display cases for this set so the actual boxes have to go out, if the box is really bad he can see if the manager will swap it, but its his/her discretion if they do.


    West, unless its a small store and got reduced allocation or a big store with lots of staff taking up their allocation, it was unlucky that there was none at 9.00am, the figure of 15-20 is based on the store size of our branch and we are the 5th largest, so simliar size stores would get the same, going down or up depending on size, but you cant tell me that any working individual who's company has a promotion, sale, offer etc, will not take advantage of it first,
