    I'm probably on a hiding to nothing but does any one know of anywhere that has this in stock at this moment in time, how much for and whether there could possibly still be any of the tin boxed version available?

    Cheers:confused:

    Hi,

    I have the tin box and only watch up to part 2, to those who do not have it, all i can say is wow!, the picture quality is excellent, love films that have the desaturated look. Sounds good too. I was luck enough to get the tin box for £12.50! though the sainsbury promo a few months ago. You win some, you lose some. I got lucky that day.

    I was in WH Smiths on Northumberland Street in Newcastle over the weekend, and they had a pile of BOB sets. One of them was a tin! It'll not be cheap, but they've got one.

    Get yourself down to the shop and have a look mate. They certainly had one on display, and it was only Sunday when I was in there and saw it.

    Hi,

    Theres a few sites that stock R1 and R2 of BOB. Some show the tinbox image.

    Argos £43 (1-2 days, out of stock).

    Sainsbury £49

    Amazon.ca (canada) about £40 tin box image.


    Worth emailing or phoning.

    So even if you get cardboard box, online is still cheaper.


    ta

    I have just got back from WHSmiths with my cardboard box set (I asked if they had any metal tin sets but I was told no.) There was, however, a metal box Video set behind the counter tjmckeown but I will continue to see if I can get a cheaper one from the other sources mentioned and then return the one I picked up if need be... ;)

    It wasn't behind the counter when I saw it, for sure. They had a big pile of BOB cardboards, down the bottom of the store, upstairs? On the opposite side from the video counter, near to where the DVD's are shelved??? And on top of that pile, was a tin set.

    Maybe they sold it, or moved them, but it was there!!

    If you want Band of Brothers on R1 with the DTS soundtrack I just got it from Amazon.ca for $115ca. Ordered it on Wednesday got it today. And it comes in the tin. I have to say it's very well put together and sounds fantastic

    Cost £55 but came in metal box and unlike region 2 comes with DTS sound option (region 2 D digital only) and good it sounds too!
