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:

but it is £52 :eek:

----------

GOOD NEWS THOUGH:

I'm desperately after this too, but it seems as if HMV has the exclusive for the 3-discer at £24.99! :eek:

I hope prices come down as I'd love this for xmas...

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....

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

Play said that with Jurassic Park box set and I got my order, so unless you have some inside info I'm still hoping :)

Just don't get your hopes up - HMV have held on to some exclusives forever.

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