    Can anybody help?
    where can one buy the new Region-2 3-disc collectors editin of the wizard of oz?
    play has it at £17.99 but listed as not available.
    only HMV seem to have it as an 'exclusive' but the price now seems to have risen to £24.99 !!!
    is this a case of the studios pushing up prices again? :thumbsdow
    maybe wait until the hmv new years sale when the price might go down.
    cheapest Region-one found was play usa at £24.99 also.
    is there any hope for us on R2?

    Not seen the 3 disc (r2) edition aywhere apart from HMV as mentioned:
    http://www.hmv.co.uk/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=285;5;-1;-1&sku=430361

    ----------

    But the 2 disc SE (R2 - 98 mins) is £13.99 (or less;) ) at cd-wow:
    http://www3.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=22726&subcat=region2

    Or the 2 disc SE (R1 - 103 mins) is £13.99 (or less;) ) at cd-wow:
    http://www3.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=22603

    Amazon marketplace has a vey nice dvd box set version of the old release:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00000JS64/qid=1130671713/sr=1-12/ref=sr_1_2_12/202-5444026-6519842
    but it is £52 :eek:

    ----------

    GOOD NEWS THOUGH:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000ADS64E/qid=1130671863/sr=1-27/ref=sr_1_2_27/202-5444026-6519842

    I ordered it from hmv for £22.99 with the £2 off voucher.

    is this likely to be readily available in the future as £22.99 is a tad expensive. I would love to wait to see if this prices drops in the sales ? but wouldn't want to risk not getting it then. :confused:

    should I cancel with HMV and just wait?

    bit too expensive for me at the minute- I cant justify spending £24.99 on this even though it is a beautiful package.

    Im keeping my fingers tightly crossed that CDWow get it in stock (they av the 2disk)- similar products such as GWTW and Ben Hur 4 disk packages are around £16/17.

    Annoyin thing is I had the opportunity to pre-order both these for £16.99 on PlayUSA and Hmv but held off- finally came to pre-order and the prices had been hiked up!

    It really is one of the nicest dvd packages ive ever seen (well pictures of it) and the film is one I loved as a kid and havent watched for years.

    I'm with you on this one. I really want the 3-disk as the packaging looks superb (plus it's a fine movie!) The only thing is that if I plonk £25 for it I've got a feeling it will go down in price very soon after. Think I'll wait for the xmas sales!

    Hmm with my student disocunt I could get this for under £20- do I wait for it to come down more and run this risk of it going up. Or do I just go for it now....

    Keep an eye on Play.com. They have it listed as £17.99 but 'Not currently available'.

    That Play R2 listing is defunct - this is an R2 exclusive to HMV.

    Hmmm, HMV's £22 seems to be the best price, really don't know whether to go for it. It's still quite expensive...
