I'll still take advantage of Best Buy's price matching. It's a lot more convenient for me to get to than Target.

Ah, thank you. I couldn't remember if there were or not.

Wow, $63 for both. That's even better than their season 3 deal. I think the BOBW release was $15.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Keep in mind that many Target stores will only receive one or two of each of the two Blu-ray sets - last time around several stores couldn't honor the deal because they didn't have both Blu-rays available... and Best Buy will not match a double-discount deal very often, that's just a matter of luck.

I didn't know this was their policy. I've never had them bat an eye, as long as I show them the ad, they do the price match and then do a separate discount on the overall order.

I really think it depends on who handles the order. If they go "by the book", I've been told, they shouldn't.

Even if Best Buy doesn't honour the extra $10 it'll still be worth it for me just for the convenience. I'd have to at least take the subway to and from Target so at best I'd be saving $5 by going to Target instead of Best Buy.

Or you could just order them from Amazon - which will price match Best Buy like they have for every other release - through the TrekCore links!

Yup, I knew Target did that sort of thing. I went to Target last time at 8AM, and found three copies of each. I'll be doing the same thing on 7/30.

They may price-match Best Buy but they won't price-match Target's deal. Or at least they didn't last time.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

TrekCore posted several more shots from Season 4, and they look INCREDIBLE.

The shot I asked about - Enterprise at McKinley Station - actually looks pretty good. Just *slightly* overlit, but since it's in the sunlight, I can forgive that.

Modern Video made the Enterprise look much better in this shot:

One of my main issues with the late seasons was them dropping the stock ILM shots for the lower quality shots of the 4-footer. With CBS-D making it look feature quality with their new compositing, it's gonna feel much better.

MV's attempt at matching CBS-D's visual style worked out really well, would quite like to see their finished phaser and transporter effects too. Also judging from the Starbase shot MV were supplied with the completed stock shots so hopefully there isn't any crap similar to this or this in Season 4.

Re: Season FOUR OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Like TrekCore, I thought this new shot looked particularly nice, so I expanded it to 16x9. For those of you who'd like to use it as a desktop or game console background, here you go -- now you don't have to crop it to make it fit! Just click on the image below to take you to the full size version:
